What is the Firewall “Next Generation”?
The number and complexity of network attacks and malware is increasing every day in geometric progression. Security systems face new challenges on a daily basis, and information security professionals converge in one way – effective protection can only be ensured by the sole use of an integrated approach.
The latest wording means that technical and organizational measures are needed to protect information resources. Speaking of hardware, it should be noted that to date, the availability of antivirus software or classical network screen is not sufficient to maintain the confidentiality, integrity or availability of information. Firewalls, which are mostly used by organizations, can filter information flows based on network attributes or attributes (IP addresses, ports, etc.), but can not identify threats (malicious software, targeted attacks) inside such information flows ( Network traffic).
An urgent answer to the questions of protecting the perimeter of the organization from current threats is to use devices of the class “Network screen” of the next generation. ” Such devices, in addition to the functional classical network screen, allow:
Get information about the reputation of network resources (WEB sites, IP addresses, etc.).
In order to protect the “cloud” information resources, it is expedient to use the cloud service of the “Next Generation Network Screen”. The advantages of such a service before using a hardware solution are:
