NSS Labs performed an independent test of the Cisco ASA 5525---X v5.3.1. The product was subjected to thorough testing at the NSS facility in Austin, Texas, based on the Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) methodology v5.4 available on www.nsslabs.com. This test was conducted free of charge and NSS did not receive any compensation in return for Cisco’s participation. For additional information on NGFW technology, refer to the NSS Analysis Brief entitled “What Do CIOs Need to Know About Next Generation Firewalls?”
This book provides an overview of network security in general, and explains how cybercriminals can use hidden or currently undetectable methods to penetrate protected network systems. Advanced evasion techniques (AETs) bypass current common network security solutions. They can transport any attack or exploit through network security devices and firewalls, next generation firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention systems, and even routers doing deep packet inspection. In this book you’ll find out all about AETs, and get useful pointers and advice to help you secure your organization. If you’re working in government, the military, banking, industry, e-commerce or with other critical infrastructures, read this book to find out what you’re up against and how to better protect against advanced evasions.
Forrester has published the results of its research evaluating the 10 most significant web application firewall (WAF) vendors on 33 important criteria. Akamai is proud to be recognized as one of three Leaders in WAFs, with top rankings in both the current offering and strategy categories.
Gartner named Akamai a Leader in their 2017 Magic Quadrant for Web Application Firewalls.
A web application firewall is an essential element in your defense against application-layer attacks, which pose an ever-greater threat to productivity and security.
The Akamai approach to WAF combines:
An anomaly detection model
A repeatable testing framework to measure effectiveness
Threat intelligence to identify the latest threats
A cloud platform for global scale
Managed security services to help organizations better protect their websites and web applications over time
Independent technology research firm Forrester evaluated web application firewall (WAF) vendors and published the results in The Forrester Wave™: Web Application Firewalls, Q2 2018. Akamai Technologies emerged as one of the leaders after a comprehensive evaluation on 33 criteria. The report states that security pros require a WAF that will automatically protect web applications, stay ahead of zero-day attacks and protect new application formats including APIs and serverless architectures. The report also reveals detailed findings for the 10 most significant WAF vendors. Akamai’s Kona Site Defender was the top scorer in the zero-day attacks criterion and one of the select vendors rated a Leader, the highest-ranking level in the report.

"Next generation" capability has been achieved by the products in the network firewall market, and vendors differentiate on feature strengths. Buyers must consider the trade-offs between best-of-breed function and costs.
Virtualization is helping organizations like yours utilize data center hardware infrastructure more effectively, leading to a reduction in costs and improvements in operational efficiencies. In many cases, virtualization initiatives begin internally, with your own hardware and networking infrastructure augmented by tools like VMware® or Linux® KVM and OpenStack® to help manage your virtualized environment. Often referred to as private cloud, these projects are fueling significant expansion into what can be referred to as the public cloud.
Juniper’s security solutions seamlessly extend across private and public cloud architectures without compromising security, flexibility, and manageability. With midrange, high-performance, space-efficient, next-generation firewalls, smarter and faster centralized management, and highly evolved security intelligence and automation tools, Juniper Networks allows you to secure your network, keep operational costs down, and easily migrate to a hybrid cloud architecture.

As networks scale, they become difficult to manage. A different command line interface (CLI) or operating system (OS) is required for every device type in your network, such as routers, switches, and firewalls. Learning a new OS for every device is a complex task for your operations team and can slow them down—not a very efficient way to run a network.

Forcepoint recognized as a Visionary for 2nd year in a row, in the Gartner 2018 Magic Quadrant for NGFW
Gartner has named Forcepoint sole Visionary in their 2018 Magic Quadrant for NGFW, for ability to execute and completeness of vision.
According to Gartner, “In this mature market, vendors differentiate on feature strengths. Security and risk management leaders must consider the trade-offs between best-of-breed enterprise network firewall functions and risk tolerance.”*
When Barracuda first engaged with Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity in 2007, enterprises were more concerned about the unauthorized use of Skype, other P2P applications and instant messaging. Although the need for application control and awareness remains, enterprise concerns are shifting to securing enterprise applications hosted in private and public clouds, protecting east-west data center traffic and preventing unwanted traffic and malware on the corporate network.
Advanced persistent threats (APTs) are stealthier and more spiteful than ever. Sophisticated techniques are used to quietly breach organizations and deploy customized malware, which potentially remains undetected for months. Such attacks are caused by cybercriminals who target individual users with highly evasive tools. Legacy security approaches are bypassed to steal sensitive data from credit card details to intellectual property or government secrets. Traditional cybersecurity solutions, such as email spam filters, anti-virus software or firewalls are ineffective against advanced persistent threats. APTs can bypass such solutions and gain hold within a network to make organizations vulnerable to data breaches.
The average company uses more than 50 security vendors.
Firewalls, Web proxies, SIEM, Appliances & Third-party intelligence.
The list goes on — and sometimes you still find your stack coming up short when it comes to securing users anywhere they access the internet. Strengthening your security stack doesn’t mean a massive overhaul or a loss of customization and control. Check out these 6 ways to amplify and extend your stack with cloud security from Cisco Umbrella.
