Next-Generation Firewall Management - SITS
Next-Generation Firewall at a Glance

Next-Gen Firewalls (NGFW) are advanced security solutions that go beyond traditional firewall capabilities. Unlike „old-school“ firewalls that mainly control network-level traffic, NGFWs also monitor applications and identities accessing the network.

A Next-Gen Firewall offers intrusion detection and prevention, application control, and enhanced threat detection. It protects networks and conventional devices like desktop clients and smartphones, as well as IoT or OT devices. With sophisticated detection techniques, it identifies and blocks the latest cyber threats.

It uses machine learning and cloud connections on top, providing protection suitable for today’s hybrid working world, adapts to ever-changing security requirements, and meets data protection standards, enabling businesses to effectively defend their networks against increasingly sophisticated attack strategies.

  • Defense: Our Firewall Management Service secures your IT network from cyber threats and keeps your data safe.
  • Full Compliance: Our solution meets current industry standards and legal requirements.

A Crack in the Wall

Can you Stop Every Single Attack with a Firewall?

A firewall forms the first line of defense in corporate IT: continuously monitoring incoming and outgoing traffic, blocking cyber-attacks, and eliminating detected threats. However, the performance of traditional firewalls is often not up-to-par to provide effective protection against the full spectrum of today’s attack forms.

Your Business Challenge
Classic firewalls require a lot of maintenance from your IT teams: regular patching, configuration, and event management of firewalls can quickly turn into a hassle - not to mention rapid responses in case of an attack. Such firewalls are also limited to protecting local network traffic.

Under these circumstances, IT admins or CISOs can only partially fend off threats and companies soon face the following challenges:

  • Weak defenses against new threats: Hackers access the network unnoticed through sophisticated cyber-attacks and steal information.
  • Stricter compliance rules: Traditional firewalls meet industry-specific standards and laws only to a limited extent.
  • Shortage of skilled professionals: Managing a firewall requires a lot of IT resources and expertise.
