A Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) is the cornerstone for addressing today's cyber threats and should include these key requirements:
- Security features beyond Intrusion Prevention, Application Control and User Identity such as Web filtering, IP reputation, antivirus and sandboxing to isolate attacks.
- Deep inspection into network traffic to identify applications, users, devices, and threats enabling better protection through context aware policy controls.
- Simple overview management, advanced visualization components, and rich reporting to keep you informed and help you make strategic security decisions.
- Deliver highly reliable core firewall capabilities, as well as the full range of next generation features, at high throughput speeds.
