With the growing use of cloud, mobile computing and bring your own device (BYOD) policies, and with the rise of shadow IT, enterprises today are dealing with new levels of risk, complexity and cost like never before. From advanced persistent threats (APTs) to spam and malware, it's critical for organizations to protect themselves against the increasingly sophisticated threat landscape.
To combat these risks, organizations are moving away from traditional firewalls that focus only on stateful packet inspection (SPI) and access control rules in favor of next-generation firewalls (NGFWs). Unlike their predecessors, which offered limited protection from today's continually evolving threats, NGFWs deliver a much deeper level of security across weird and wireless networks.
This whitepaper offers extensive background on the benefits of NGFWs, details how Dell SonicWALL NGFWs deliver a deeper level of network security without compromising performance, and outlines which Dell SonicWALL NGFWs are best suited for both the size and unique needs of your business.
