  3. 3. 2 3 4 1 Source: Frost & Sullivan Executive Summary—CEO’s Perspective This is an important strategic market for security vendors and network infrastructure manufacturers. Customers prefer to purchase security and IT solutions from a single provider whenever possible. Businesses are continually challenged to do more with less. Firewalls must be intuitive to deploy and manage in order for businesses to reap the most value from their firewall investment. Firewall requirements will vary widely in terms of performance, cost, and features depending on the size of the organization, placement within the network, and risk management objectives. Security threats and enterprise technologies only continue to change; firewall vendors must provide a high degree of flexibility in their products to allow for changing security requirements and regulations.
  4. 4. Key Highlights • The network firewall has emerged as the cornerstone of an IT organization’s information security infrastructure but is also undergoing a period of rapid and forced evolution in recent years. • In particular, the effectiveness of stateful firewalls has been challenged in the modern cyber threat climate. • Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) products are designed to address a major weakness in the inspection process of stateful firewalls. • The commonly accepted definition of NGFW also includes the integration of Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) capabilities. However, network firewalls have historically been considered devices that enforce “entry-and-exit” policies. • As a result, the integration of IPS for threat inspection raises questions about the future role of the single function network firewall.
