Unfortunately when it comes to your firewall, most businesses run with an older stateful packet inspection firewall. Some fail to realize that as this firewalls dates, so does the threats. Simply put – you don’t always have time to keep up with trends and technologies.

With next gen firewalls (NGFWs) you help put your business in the driver seat to staying ahead of threats. NGFWs provide functions of traditional firewalls such as stateful inspection, VPN support, as well as network address translation.

For SMBs, the cost to implement as well as manage these technologies may seem out of reach. Although NGFWs have become more sophisticated, they can easily fit into a small business budget. With consolidation in mind, NGFWs also administer an all-in-one tool that offer policies and effective control over traditional inspection firewalls.
