The iNGFW 4.0 offers continuous monitoring and protection of network traffic from perimeter to server.

Hillstone Networks recently unveiled its new Intelligent Next-Generation Firewall solution, the iNGFW 4.0.

According to the company, the solution builds upon Hillstone's existing solution, and will provide continuous monitoring and protection of network traffic from perimeter to servers.

Notable features of the solution include:

  • Rich forensic evidence. By correlating and mapping events into the 7 Steps of the kill chain, iNGFW 4.0 provides analysts with detailed insights into how and why the attacks occurred, as well as how they can be prevented from reoccurring. 
  • More detailed threat information. The solution helps administrators take proper and timely action by providing visibility into confidence level, severity, and geo-location of threats, as well as advanced threat search features based on combo conditions with information aggregation or filtering.  
  • Enhanced threat detection efficacy. iNGFW 4.0 offers advanced threat detection engines or algorithms with a high detection rate on machine generated domains and encrypted channel identification, and a server protection feature.
  • Automatic mitigation mechanism with pre-defined templates to manually block and/or slow down sessions or reduce bandwidths.
  • Cloud analytics platform with two-way feedback and communication.  iNGFW 4.0 features a fine-tuned model that automatically uploads suspicious events detected by the Advanced Threat Detection engine to the cloud. It also updates the black and white listing daily based on the result of in-depth analysis by experts.

"This fourth generation release of the iNGFW platform sets a new standard in Intelligent Next-Generation Firewalls with improved threat detection efficacy for wider and deeper network protection and enhanced cloud security capabilities with continuous monitoring and detection," said Francis Teo, Regional Director of South East Asia at Hillstone Networks.

He added that his company is now offering the iNGFW 4.0 to customers in South East Asia in hopes to helping them "stay one step ahead of cyber attackers."
