What is NextGen Firewall?
By definition from Gartner, NGFWs are “deep-packet inspection firewalls that move beyond port/protocol inspection and blocking to add application-level inspection, intrusion prevention, and bringing intelligence from outside the firewall” as the third generation of firewall technology.
Why NextGen Firewalls?
NGFW provide typical firewall functions like thorough inspection and filtering of incoming and outgoing traffic, along with application inspection and control, IPS, cloud-based threat intelligence and advanced threat prevention.
