Server VLAN interfaces must be protected by restrictive ACLs using a deny-by-default security posture.
Protecting data sitting in a server VLAN is necessary and can be accomplished using access control lists on VLANs provisioned for servers. Without proper access control of traffic entering or leaving the server VLAN, potential threats such as a denial of service, data corruption, or theft could occur, resulting in the inability to complete mission requirements by authorized users.
Configure an ACL to protect the server VLAN interface. The ACL must be in a deny-by-default security posture.
firewall protecting the server farm to validate an ACL with a deny-by-default security posture has been implemented that secures the servers located on the VLAN. If the filter is not defined on the firewall and the architecture contains a layer 3 switch between the firewall and the server , then review the ACL configured for the VLAN on the L3 switch.
