Firewall & Security
Storage Networks Certified Security Engineers work with partners Barracuda Networks, Check Point, Cisco, and Fortinet to assist in the selection, configuration, installation, and application integration of Next Generation FireWalls (NGFW).
Next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) filter network traffic to protect an organization from internal and external threats. Along with maintaining features of stateful firewalls such as packet filtering, IPsec and SSL VPN support, network monitoring, and IP mapping features, NGFWs possess deeper content inspection capabilities.
These capabilities provide the ability to identify attacks, malware, and other threats, to allow the NGFW to block these threats. NGFWs provide organizations with SSL inspection, application control, intrusion prevention, and advanced visibility.
