Next Generation Firewall
A Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) is defined by its ability to address the more complex and ever-changing threats in the cyber security world. Using a combination of signatures on the hardware with the latest threat intelligence from cloud engine databases, a NGFW can stop unknown threats and prevent them from spreading to the network even if they have never been identified before. Upon deep packet inspection, if a profile cannot be matched against known threat or regular traffic types it will be 'sand-boxed' in the cloud until such a time it can be identified and classified. This type of enhanced firewall features help address 'zero-day' attacks and sophisticated ransomware and are highly recommended in protecting a network.
