  • Network Protection

    All the protection you need to stop sophisticated attacks and advanced threats while providing secure network access to those you trust.

    • Firewall includes the latest next-generation stateful and deep-packet inspection technology for network and application traffic with zone-based policies and user-identity awareness.
    • IPS goes beyond traditional servers and network resources. XG Firewall incorporates next-generation IPS (NGIPS) to identify and protect users and applications on the network as well.
    • Advanced Threat Protection gives you advanced multi-layered threat protection that combines DNS, IPS, Web and traffic filters to defend your network from today’s sophisticated attacks.
    • VPN provides the ultimate flexibility and simplicity with support for standards-based VPNs (IPSec, SSL, and much more). It also gives you our unique clientless access portal and Remote Ethernet Devices (RED).

Security Heartbeat™

Advanced attacks are more coordinated than ever before. Now your defenses are, too. Our revolutionary Security Heartbeat lets your endpoint protection and firewall talk to each other. It’s a simple yet effective idea that means you get better protection against advanced threats and spend less time responding to incidents. It’s so simple it makes you wonder why nobody did it before.

Find the threat faster

Advanced threat indicators like suspicious network traffic are instantly shared between the Next-Gen Firewall and the Next-Gen Endpoint to detect and prevent attacks.

Simplify investigation

Active identification of compromised systems allows Heartbeat to share computer names, users, and paths between the Endpoint and Firewall, so you can quickly take action.

Minimize threat impact

Compromised endpoints are automatically isolated by the firewall, while the endpoint terminates and removes malicious software.

Lightning Speed

We’ve engineered our network security solutions to deliver outstanding performance. We built our UTM using Intel multi-core technology, solid-state drives, and accelerated in-memory content scanning. Potent, powerful, fast.
