Next Generation Firewalls

Smart firewalls, infused with machine learning to protect your business

The online economy brings great opportunity, but also some dangers. Unprotected exposure to the internet leaves your business vulnerable to attacks from malicious users and software pieces designed to steal information and corrupt your systems.

This risk is what makes a next-generation firewall – or NGFW – such a valuable piece of equipment in your organization’s online security toolkit. iPower Technologies provide such solutions to your company, keeping you protected effectively and efficiently, and providing all of the peace of mind which comes with this.

Get in touch with the team to find out more and to get started, or read on for further information on these smart security structures.

An Advanced Convergence of Security Concepts in your NGFW

Your next generation firewall from iPower brings together three state-of-the-art concepts in the world of cybersecurity. These are:

  • Enterprise level firewall functionality
  • Advanced intrusion protection system – or IPS
  • Application control

By unifying these core concepts, an NGFW takes significant steps towards eliminating the online threat from malware, ransomware, and other nefarious pieces of programming. An attack from one of these pieces of software is something your business cannot afford, which is why iPower’s NGFW is growing in popularity among clients.

A next generation firewall benefits your business in many ways.

Enhanced function from your firewall

The next generation firewall is not so much a replacement for previous generations as it is an evolution. NGFWs build upon the functionality of traditional firewalls, adding cutting-edge quality of service functionality to an already dynamic mix of security protocols.

Smarter approaches to online security

The first firewalls were simple barriers; points at which a security division was implemented between your organization’s digital architecture, and the online world at large. Next generation offerings go a little further than this.

An NGFW is capable of learning about and understanding the traffic which passes across it, ensuring that it is better positioned to block and allow communication as and when required.

Comprehensive protection in an increasingly diverse landscape

In most cases, the online functionality of a business’ web presence – and a user’s interaction with that functionality – is supported by applications. These pieces of digital engineering have been revolutionary in the capability they provide, but have also made it difficult for a firewall to do the job of protecting a business’ systems adequately.

An NGFW sidesteps this by understanding the diverse web traffic that these applications are responsible for and making quick, reliable decisions on the nature of this traffic.
