Next-generation firewalls filter network traffic to protect an organisation from external threats. Maintaining features of stateful firewalls such as packet filtering, VPN support, network monitoring, and IP mapping features, NGFWs also possess deeper inspection capabilities that give them a superior ability to identify attacks, malware, and other threats. Next-generation firewalls provide organisations with application control, intrusion prevention, and advanced visibility across the network. As the threat landscape continues to develop rapidly, traditional firewalls fall further behind and put your organization at risk. NGFWs not only block malware, but also include paths for future updates, giving them the flexibility to evolve with the landscape and keep the network secure as new threats arise.
