Next-generation firewalls include intrusion prevention system (IPS) technology that can detect and block cyber attacks. But they are not a complete substitute for a purpose-built next-generation IPS. Effective network security requires both. This paper explains how these two important security defenses work together to protect your network and your business.
Web Gateway protect Web-surfing PCs from infection and enforce company policies. A secure Web gateway is a solution that filters unwanted software/malware from user-initiated Web/Internet traffic and enforces corporate and regulatory policy compliance. These gateways must, at a minimum, include URL filtering, malicious-code detection and filtering, and application controls for popular Web-based applications, such as instant messaging (IM) and Skype. Native or integrated data leak prevention is also increasingly included.
Next-Generation IPS sets a new standard for advanced threat protection integrating real-time contextual awareness, full-stack visibility and intelligent security automation to deliver industry-leading security effectiveness, performance and low total cost of ownership. Passive intrusion detection (IDS) mode notifies of suspicious network traffic and behavior while inline IPS mode blocks threats.

Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are more devastating than ever. Ensuring availability of business services requires organizations to rethink how to build scalable DDoS defenses that can surgically distinguish an attacker from a legitimate user. Whether for financial, political or other motivations, today’s attacks have evolved to include DDoS toolkits, weaponized IoT devices, online DDoS services and more
