Requirements for SMD and Midsized Next-Generation Firewall Purchases

By: Cisco
Cisco

The need for threat-focused next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) that can effectively mitigate risks that traditional unified threat management (UTM) and point solutions cannot is highlighted by numerous studies, including one from Cisco that reported that every organization should assume it has been hacked. Cisco threat researchers found malicious traffic was visible on 100 percent of the corporate networks that they observed, with evidence that adversaries had often penetrated those networks and were frequently operating undetected over a long period.

Today’s multivector and persistent threats, fluid IT environments, and increasing user mobility are prompting more organizations to seek NGFW capability that provides affordable and effective layered threat protection. While a range of solutions have emerged to try to meet this need, an NGFW that includes all the necessary capabilities for effective security today is rare.
