Our next-generation firewall classifies all traffic, including encrypted traffic, based on application, application function, user and content. You can create comprehensive, precise security policies, resulting in safe enablement of applications. This lets only authorized users run sanctioned applications, greatly reducing the surface area of cyber attacks across the organization.
The combination of Content-IDTM and WildFireTM provides protection from known and unknown threats. Content-ID limits unauthorized data transfer and detects and blocks a wide range of threats. WildFire identifies unknown malware, zero-day exploits, and advanced persistent threats (APTs) through static and dynamic analysis in a scalable, virtual environment, and automatically disseminates updated protections globally in near-real time.
Today’s security architectures are a result of adding uncoordinated security layers one at a time, making them ineffective in dealing with modern threats. Unlike legacy firewalls that are based on this "layered security" architecture, our next-generation firewalls use a unified security design that classifies all traffic into full context before applying one set of flexible security rules in a single pass.

Next, request your Security Lifecycle Review (SLR). The SLR examines your network traffic and generates a comprehensive report unique to your organization. You’ll discover the applications and threats exposing vulnerabilities in your security posture.
