NG Firewalls & UTM

Firewalls for the Cloud Generation

Traditional security strategies and firewalls were never intended for today’s cloud-integrated infrastructures and workloads. They can’t give branch offices direct access to your cloud applications. They often don’t support cloud-friendly consumption models, and they don’t have the scalability and flexibility that cloud-hosted applications demand. Our Next-Gen Firewalls and UTMs are built for securing cloud-connected networks. They protect all your users, applications, and data – regardless of what your infrastructure looks like.

Did You Know?

Our Next-Generation Firewalls and UTMs also protect against malware including advanced persistent threats, as well as additional features such as application control.

Key Features & Benefits

FULL NEXT-GEN SECURITY

Designed and built from the ground up to provide comprehensive, next-generation firewall protection. Firewalling, IPS, URL filtering, dual antivirus and application control take place directly in the data path. More resource-intensive tasks like sandboxing – required for protecting against ransomware – can be seamlessly integrated in the cloud.

FULL SD-WAN CAPABILITY

In the cloud era, you need to connect branch offices with the cloud in a direct and secure way. Backhauling traffic to the central Internet gateway using MPLS can be very cost-intensive. Our NextGen Firewalls can enable you to replace costly MPLS connections with cost-efficient broadband connections. You can utilise up to 24 broadband connections per VPN tunnel for increased bandwidth at lower cost.

INTRUSION PREVENTION SERVICE

Complete and comprehensive real-time network protection against a broad range of network threats, vulnerabilities, exploits, and exposures in operating systems, applications, and databases preventing network attacks such as; SQL injections and arbitrary code executions, access control attempts and privilege escalations, Cross-Site Scripting and buffer overflows, Dos and DDoS attacks, and more.

APPLICATION CONTROL

Highly granular control by category, application, or application sub-function to keep your network flowing and your environment safe. Granular control over social networking applications and their functions, so employees can use Facebook, Twitter, and other important apps for work, but not for anything else. Ability to select, manage, and report on application usage by user, group, and time of day.

ADVANCED PERSISTENT THREATS

Full system emulation, provides deep visibility into malware behaviour. Files are checked against a cryptographic hash database that is constantly updated. In case the file is unknown, it is emulated in a virtual sandbox where malicious behaviour can be discovered, and blocked if necessary.

SPAM FILTERING

Block spam regardless of language, format, or content – even image-based spam that other blockers miss. Cloud-based technology can be implemented to provide anti-spam with a low footprint for your firewall/UTM. Identify and block viral payloads for an additional layer of real-time, anti-virus protection.

CONTENT FILTERING

Content and URL filtering lets you control where people on your network go, and protects them (and you) from landing in places they shouldn’t be. Get broad control (by URL category) and deep (by specific users, groups, domains, or time of day) so you can block for security, productivity, and legal compliance. Customise policies to create exception lists for mission-critical access. Allow access by users, groups, domains, and time of day requirements to meet specific business and user needs.

DATA LOSS PREVENTION

DLP prevents accidental or malicious data breaches by scanning text and common file types to detect sensitive information. Even if all else fails, you can still prevent data exfiltration. Easily create and update corporate data policies with a predefined library of over 200 rules for 18 countries. Establish rules for personally identifiable information, financial and healthcare data, and more. Parse data from more than 30 file types including Excel, Word, Visio, PowerPoint, and PDFs.

GATEWAY ANTI-VIRUS

Continuously updated signatures identify and block known spyware, viruses, trojans, and blended threats – including new variants of known viruses. At the same time, heuristic analysis tracks down suspicious data constructions and actions to make sure unknown viruses don’t slip by. Scans all major protocols, including HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, TCP, SMTP, and POP3 to block all types of malware. Optimised for best network performance.

NETWORK DISCOVERY

A critical step in securing your network is to have total visibility into every device connected to it. Generates a visual map of all nodes on your network so you can see anywhere your network may be in jeopardy and take immediate preventive or corrective action. Instantly know all devices that are connected, as well as any open ports, all protocols in use, and operating system that are running.
