Six Key Reasons to Upgrade to a Next-Generation Firewall

  • Malware Detection - Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFW) recognise that even legitimate websites may unknowingly harbour malware that can affect a business’s network. Organisations may want to give certain users access to social media platforms, which often have malicious files or links, but with a NGFW you can avoid this as the firewall software will inspect network traffic to detect malware and prevent it from being delivered to the user.
  • Web Usage Control - NGFW vendors such as Fortinet have gone through the process of categorising websites according to the type of content it primarily uses. Organisations can use these categories to block or limit access to certain types of sites – e.g. pornography, child abuse, dating, gambling, social media, shopping, etc. This prevents users from going to sites that could be malicious or create legal issues or that simply have no business relevance.
  • Application Awareness - NGFWs are application-aware, which means they allow legitimate applications to traverse the network while blocking others according to business policies. For example, organisations can bock applications such as Bit Torrent, which is commonly used to download content illegally, as well as consumer-grade file-sharing applications that can put important business data at risk. Organisations may also want to block video streaming and other non-business applications that can cause bandwidth slowness and hamper employee productivity.
  • VPN Support - Given today’s highly mobile and connected workstyles, most organisations will allow employees to access network resources remotely, whether it’s from another country or from home. A virtual private network (VPN) creates a secure, private connection over the public internet to protect the data moving between the remote user and the data centre. NGFWs simplify and secure remote access with built-in support for IPsec and SSL VPNs, so you can ensure the security of important data.
  • Automated Intervention - NGFWs don’t just passively block traffic based upon known signatures and predefined policies, but through deep packet inspection and intrusion prevention, they can effectively scrutinize regular network traffic on a much more granular level. A NGFW will actively look for patterns that could indicate malicious activity and protect your business from any remote attacks.
  • TradeUp Program - The TradeUp Program allows you to access the latest Fortinet solutions, bringing you improved performance, updated security, and an advanced feature set whilst benefitting from real cost savings.
