The need of firewall

Security Pipeline has a story about removing firewall because, as the author says, they don't give security. When we read the text more carefully we can see that he's still using ACLs (what means, in fact, firewall) and application-level firewalls.

Firewall doesn't guarantee security (well...certain companies advertise something different, but who believes ads?). Instead, it's a tool that can be used to many interesting things. Also Slashdot comments are worth reading in this case.
