Block threats and protect your business against cyber crime with a firewall

Every business that has a network should have a firewall, regardless of the size of the company. And, because cyber criminals are evolving their strategies continuously and finding new, more sophisticated ways to penetrate business networks, when it comes to protecting your company’s most valuable asset, vigilance is key.

Next generation firewalls

In addition to the functionality of traditional firewalls, NGFWs also include integrated intrusion detection systems (IDS) and intrusion protection systems (IPS) that detect attacks based on traffic behavioral analysis, threat signatures or anomalous activity. This functionality helps perform deeper inspection and improve packet-content filtering of network traffic up to the application layer.

NGWF devices have application awareness monitoring traffic from layer 2 through layer 7 and are intelligent enough to determine what exactly is being sent or received. If the content is within policy, it is sent further or if it breaches policy it’s blocked.

Application awareness also enables companies to set policies depending on the user and the application. For instance, allowing users to access Facebook, but blocking Facebook Chats.

NGFWs also enable the infrastructure to be more streamlined. They provide integrated antivirus, spam filtering, deep-packet inspection and application control, using only one device or console. No extra devices are required, thus reducing infrastructural complexities.
