The unfortunate but required security precautions are that you really
should filter as low down in the network as possible, this allows the most
granular filtering as possible. Much of that could be accomplished with
simple router acls.
Filtering as close to the end hosts allows you to explicitly permit/deny
traffic to the services required without as many compromises on acl length
Note, it may require some automation of the acl deployment or management
of the acls could become 'complex' :)
