Cyberthreats have grown exponentially more powerful and more dangerous over the years, and unless you do something to protect yourself, you can expect your current security measures to slowly succumb to the latest threats. Next-gen firewalls, or NGFWs, are advanced network security devices or software solutions that include both your traditional firewall system with stronger protection and visibility tools to keep tabs on network traffic. NGFWs are a solution that addresses the near-constant evolution of cyberthreats like malware, intrusion attempts, and other types of malicious threats.
