NGFW FirePower. Our customers implement Cisco’s next-generation firewall solution because, in a single package, it includes:
  • the ability to prevent intrusions,
  • protection against advanced malware,
  • URL filtering,
  • application visibility and control… all within a single consolidated appliance.

Firewalls have evolved and are now much more than just a filter packet and stateful inspection. Many companies are implementing next-generation firewalls to stop modern threats like advanced malware and application-layer attacks.

As defined by Gartner, Inc. These are the advantages that a next-generation firewall should include:

  • Standard firewall features like state inspection.
  • Integrated intrusion prevention.
  • Application detection and control to view and block applications that may generate risks.
  • Update routes to add future sources of information.
  • Techniques to deal with changes in security threats.

These functions are increasingly present in many companies, but a next-generation firewall can do much more.

Threat-centric NGFW

This type of firewall has the features of a traditional next-generation firewall and also offers advanced threat detection and remediation. Here’s what you can do with a threat-focused NGFW:

  • Know which sectors are most at risk, thanks to its full visibility of the context.
  • React quickly to attacks through the automation of intelligent security that sets policies and dynamically strengthens your defenses.
  • Detect evasive or suspicious activities more effectively thanks to the network linking and the terminal event.
  • Significantly reduce the time between detection and cleaning through retrospective security that continuously monitors for suspicious activity and behavior even after an initial inspection.
  • Simplify management and reduce complexity thanks to unified policies that provide protection throughout the attack cycle.
