FortiGate: Next-Generation Firewall

Next-generation firewalls filter network traffic to protect an organization from external threats. Maintaining features of stateful firewalls such as packet filtering, VPN support, network monitoring, and IP mapping features, NGFWs also possess deeper inspection capabilities that give them a superior ability to identify attacks, malware, and other threats. Next-generation firewalls provide organizations with application control, intrusion prevention, and advanced visibility across the network. As the threat landscape continues to develop rapidly, traditional firewalls fall further behind and put your organization at risk. NGFWs not only block malware, but also include paths for future updates, giving them the flexibility to evolve with the landscape and keep the network secure as new threats arise.

Enterprise Firewalls

Digital innovation has transformed enterprise networks, adding breakthrough capabilities to achieve business outcomes, while unintentionally exposing them to new vulnerabilities. With the rapid proliferation of mobile computing, multi-cloud deployment, and shadow IT, attack surfaces have dramatically expanded, adding complexity and making enterprise networks vulnerable to sophisticated attacks.
