The Next Step in Enterprise Firewall Evolution

Networks are evolving rapidly. The proliferation of devices, users, applications, and services has made the network edge more porous, while at the same time expanding the attack surface. And these remote devices and applications are now commonly accessing data center resources in a way unimaginable just a few years ago. Add IoT and Cloud to a highly mobile and distributed network, and you have created the perfect storm for disaster. Security has evolved organically as well. But not in a way that complements the evolution of the network. Instead,...

All the Cool Kids Have Next Gen Firewalls

Just about everyone has a firewall of some sort. But does it really need to be “next gen”? Gartner and other industry analysts have made a lot of the “Next Generation Firewall” market, or NGFW for short. It isn’t just hype, though. Threats faced by organizations of all sizes as we head into 2015 are so sophisticated, varied, and, most importantly, dangerous, that traditional firewalls are simply inadequate to protect users and networked resources. The next gen firewall addresses both emerging threats and more common attacks without bogging...

A Few Words About Evasion Techniques

Hackers have been using evasion techniques for years to get malicious payloads past firewalls. Make sure your firewall is set up out of the box to detect these attacks. So-called evasion techniques have been part of the hacker’s toolkit for years. Evasion techniques attempt to confuse, overwhelm, or blind firewalls with unexpected data, letting the bad guys (or bots) circumvent intrusion detection algorithms and launch attacks or sneak malicious payloads past the firewall. Next gen firewalls (NGFWs) are generally designed to, among other things,...

Security 101: Next Generation Firewall (NGFW)

Let's face it, there is a lot of confusion about Next Generation Firewalls and how they differentiate themselves from Unified Threat Management (UTM) devices, secure Web, and email security gateways. The myriad terms used to describe them are often used interchangeably -- and all too often incorrectly. So what exactly is a Next Generation Firewall (NGFW)? Gartner defines a NGFW as an "in-line security control that implements network security policy between networks of different trust levels in real time." If nothing else, a NGFW provides a...
