Next Generation Firewalls

Are any of the below statements relevant to your business:

  • Have you implemented a next generation firewall?
  • When was the last time you updated your firewall policies or passwords?
  • Do you currently have the ability to block malicious attacks in your network?

Why have a Next Generation Firewall?

A next-generation firewall (NGFW), is a sophisticated hardware or software-based network security system that is able to detect and block cyber-attacks by enforcing security policies at the application level, as well as at the port and protocol level.

Unfortunately, most businesses are falling behind in recommended IT security levels particularly around appropriately implemented and configured firewalls. In our experience the use of traditional firewalls and attempts to enforce a one-size-fits-all approach to security, will simply result in a business being under protected and therefore more susceptible to compromise.

Our next generation firewall solutions include:

  • Application control capability which allows individual, controlled access to web apps. So your users could be permitted to access Facebook but not the chat or games
  • Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) which blocks malicious attacks from propagating across the network
  • Email security that prevents spam and other forms of unsolicited and offensive emails
