Why didn't Sony use firewalls?

There has been a lot of press lately about the Sony Play Station Network breach. One of the facts that came out is that apparently Sony was not using network firewalls to protect the servers that PSN runs on. This got me thinking about why a large company might not have network and/or server firewalls in place. Of course there is the capital cost of purchasing firewall hardware, but I think a far bigger factor is the ongoing operations cost of managing the firewall(s).

This operations cost is one reason that we hear from customers about why they don't implement firewalls for some functions. Keeping firewall configurations up-to-date can be challenging, especially if you are managing host-based firewalls for large server farms where the number of servers is large and the pain of updating the rules is high.

Our mission at NetCitadel is to simplify firewall management so that companies don't have to choose whether or not to implement a firewall. Since Firewall Builder supports multiple firewall platforms including Linux iptables firewalls, companies can install a very capable firewall using standard PC hardware, often with hardware that costs less than $1,000.

Why do you think a large company might not install firewalls to protect critical resources?
