The SoftLayer_Network_Firewall_Template type contains general information for a SoftLayer network firewall template.
Firewall templates are recommend rule sets for use with SoftLayer Hardware Firewall (Dedicated). These optimized templates are designed to balance security restriction with application availability. The templates given may be altered to provide custom network security, or may be used as-is for basic security. At least one rule set MUST be applied for the firewall to block traffic. Use the [[SoftLayer Network Component Firewall]] service to view current rules. Use the [[SoftLayer Network Firewall Update Request]] service to submit a firewall update request.
