The network is the foundation of robust security, and the critical network security element is the firewall. For that reason, Cisco has been committed to delivering a next-generation firewall that can stop threats at the edge and focus on security efficacy. Those efforts are paying off in substantial momentum, and market observers are taking note.
Cisco has been named a leader in the 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls.
Beginning with our world-class threat-intelligence organization, Talos - the Cisco NGFW stands out from the competition. It goes beyond prevention and gives visibility into potentially malicious file activity across users, hosts, networks, and infrastructure. It saves you time and enables automation using our integrated architecture.
No other firewall vendor have the strength and breadth of networking and security capabilities that Cisco offers. Learn More about it by downloading Gartner’s 2018 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls.
The moats and castle approach is an antiquated, yet a common way, of protecting the enterprise network. This paper describes a new way to protect the enterprise which hides applications from the Internet, outside of the firewall, with zero open ports and a minimal attack surface.

Traditional security measures such as network firewalls are no longer enough to keep an enterprise secure. With Red Hat Enterprise Linux, security mechanisms are incorporated and applied at the core of every solution, and security is extended to include all the open source packages that make up Red Hat Enterprise Linux. As a result, customers experience a higher quality of service.
If you’re dealing with the high cost and complexities of
delivering reliable wide area connectivity over traditional
carrier-based networks, you’re probably considering
some form of software-defined wide area networking
(SD-WAN). With the variety of constraints that you face,
selecting the right SD-WAN solution for your enterprise
may require a few compromises. Security, however,
should not be one of them.
There are various models for combining SD-WAN and
network security, but only one that can truly be called
“secure SD-WAN.” Fortinet, the most trusted name
in network security, has leveraged its industry-leading
FortiGate Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) to deliver
integrated best-of-breed SD-WAN capabilities. Powered
by the new FortiOS 6.0 operating system, SD-WANenabled
FortiGate solutions provide the right level of
service for every application, while ensuring effective
protection from advanced evolving threats across your
Even with more advanced features and supposed higher throughput than ever before, firewalls are not able to keep up with modern demands or advanced threats. Users are more distributed than ever, and so is data. Threats are
changing rapidly, and traditional defense mechanisms that rely on layered security do not work.
Without question, your network is more complex than ever before. Your employees are accessing any application they want, using work or personal devices. Often times, these applications span both personal and work related usage, but the business and security risks are often ignored.
