What is a Next-Generation Firewall?
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.

” Congratulations on becoming an SD-WAN specialist partner! “
The Network Leader’s Guide to Secure SD-WAN
Digital innovation, such as cloud on-ramping of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), is helping to propel revenues and efficiencies for distributed businesses. However, the increased traffic demands of these technologies greatly increase the cost and performance bottlenecks of multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) connectivity over traditional wide area network (WAN) infrastructures. As a result, most network engineering and operations leaders, are now looking to replace their outdated WAN infrastructures with some form of software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN).
