A next generation firewall (NGFW) is, as Gartner defines it, a “deep-packet inspection firewall that moves beyond port/protocol inspection and blocking to add application-level inspection, intrusion prevention, and bringing intelligence from outside the firewall.”
A Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) is an integrated network platform that combines a traditional firewall with other network device filtering functionalities, such as an application firewall using in-line deep packet inspection (DPI), an intrusion prevention system (IPS). NGFWs perform a deeper inspection compared to traditional firewalls using a more thorough inspection style, checking packet payloads and matching signatures for harmful activities such as exploitable attacks and malware.
A firewall is the main line of defence for your IT network, keeping your network safe from cyber intrusion.
