Next-Generation Firewalls: A comprehensive guide for network security modernization

Key Points:

– Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFWs) offer several advantages over traditional firewalls, including comprehensive application visibility and control, adaptability to the hybrid workplace, prevention of known productivity distractors, application awareness, user-based policies, Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), and Deep Packet Inspection (DPI).
– Organizations should invest in NGFWs to address the evolving threat landscape where most exploits are directed towards specific application vulnerabilities.
– NGFWs are different from Unified Threat Management (UTM) solutions, which include additional technologies such as wireless security, URL filtering, email security, VPNs, and web application firewalls.
– NGFWs can be in the form of appliance, virtual, or cloud-based firewalls, and cloud firewalls are typically managed, configured, and updated by a third-party vendor.
– AT&T Cybersecurity offers managed firewall services to help businesses deploy robust, adaptive security measures and create a robust and human-centric security solution.
