Access the WordPress server and monitor the logs on the VM-Series firewalls to verify that policy is being enforced for your multi-tiered applications on AWS.
  1. On the web interface of the VM-Series firewall, select MonitorLogsTraffic. The following screenshot from the Mgmt-FW firewall shows that management traffic (SSH) and infrastructure traffic (application updates) to the web servers are secured.
