Businesses of all sizes are typically using some sort of traditional network firewall. However, is a traditional firewall enough to protect businesses against today's threats?

Next-Gen-Firewalls v Traditional Firewalls

A network firewall is essential for businesses of all sizes. It is a security device used to prevent illegal access to private networks by using policies. The difference between a Next-Gen-Firewall and a Traditional Firewall is the addition of more security, and efficiency features such as threat prevention, intrusion prevention and application control.

A Next-Generation Firewall is a critical part of any system's security infrastructure, regardless of your business size. With advanced malware and application-layer attacks, traditional firewalls are simply not prepared and this poses a significant risk to your business network.

Whilst there are a number of Next-Gen Firewall solutions out there, it's important to take into account what is available and affordable for small to medium size businesses. It's this space, in particular, that would hugely benefit from upgrading their existing traditional firewall solution but have often been held back due to cost.
