Your Next Generation Firewall


The way we work has changed. There is no longer a single control point in the network to secure our users, data and applications. As our business-critical applications shift to a blend of cloud and on-premise based and users need secure access to resources from everywhere, the traditional firewall approach no longer works. Our single network perimeter has evolved to multiple micro-perimeters. For many organizations the application is the new perimeter, and traditional firewall deployments have evolved to a mixture of physical, virtual, and cloud-native appliances. As a result, organizations are struggling to operationalize support for modern application environments. The challenges of how to maintain consistent visibility, policy enforcement, and uniform threat visibility without opening vulnerabilities that expose the organization to risk.

It’s time to move beyond the traditional concept of a firewall and embrace a new model of firewalling. Reimagine the firewall as your foundation to enforce robust security everywhere you need it.

Think bigger than a single control point

Once upon a time, the firewall sat on the network edge and protected an entire organization. But times change, and so has your network. Today, hard-and-fast perimeters are a thing of the past. Firewalls must enforce common policy with control points everywhere. Intelligent control points and comprehensive visibility where you need it—that’s firewalling—delivered by appliances, virtual appliances, cloud-delivered firewalls, and application and workload control.

With a comprehensive firewalling strategy, consistent security controls are deployed everywhere you need them. Gathering, sharing, and responding to context about users, locations, and devices, as well as helping ensure you meet your organization’s security requirements. This integrated approach offers full visibility with prioritized alerts, unified policy, shared threat intelligence, and stronger user and device authentication.

Explore cloud-based management

Piecemeal management, inconsistent policies, and having to update your firewall manager are just more work. With cloud management, that’s taken care of for you by the vendor.

Centralized, cloud-based management can help security teams cut through complexity and align policies throughout the organization. Policies can be written once and quickly enforced across thousands of enforcement points. With a single management console, objects can be compared across all devices to uncover inconsistencies and optimize your security posture. As your organization grows, new deployments can automatically inherit the latest policies. Discover how your organization could benefit from a cloud-based management solution.

Make it part of an open security platform

Investing in a firewall should meet your needs for today and for the future. Confidently secure your business with a broad, integrated, and open security platform that protects your environment and automates playbooks. Open platforms strengthen your security by unifying visibility across all parts of your security infrastructure—regardless of which vendor’s products you have. A platform approach, with firewall at its foundation, enables better decision making with comprehensive threat detection, security analytics, and common policy management. The best platforms reduce complexity with out-of-the-box integrations. They automate security workflows for threat investigation, hunting, and remediation. It’s a great way to strengthen operational efficiency and precision, while lowering your operational costs.

The world is changing rapidly. Maybe your organization is, too. Regardless, you need a vendor that can support your team for what’s now and what’s next. We can help you attain effective security to face tomorrow’s evolving threats. Protect your infrastructure with best-of-breed products on an integrated, open platform so you can materially enhance your security posture while lowering operational costs.
