McAfee Next Generation Firewall

McAfee Next Generation FirewallUnified and flexible network security for every enterprise environment. McAfee Next Generation Firewall integrates visionary security features with high availability and manageability, delivering advanced network protection across your entire enterprise — from corporate headquarters and branch sites to data centers and the network edge.

McAfee Next Generation Firewall integrates application control, intrusion prevention system (IPS), and evasion prevention into a single, affordable solution. It is the only next-generation firewall solution to unite anti-evasion security with enterprise-scale availability and manageability. In addition, our unique solution can change its capabilities from a next-generation firewall to a L2 firewall, IPS, and firewall/VPN, allowing you to deploy security where, when, and how you need it to maximize your return on investment.

Unified software core — Add security features and capacity, without disrupting your network. With McAfee Next Generation Firewall, a single system design serves multiple roles — next-generation firewall, Layer 2 firewall, firewall/VPN, IPS, remote access gateway, and application control — so you can quickly adapt to changing business requirements and new threats. Integrate multiple security capabilities in a single device, with a single management environment, yet pay only for what you use. Get started with a low initial purchase price, and expand capabilities as needed while maintaining a low overall TCO.

Protection against advanced evasion techniques — Get a built-in defense against a new class of sophisticated attacks. McAfee Next Generation Firewall analyzes the actual content in the data stream to protect against known and unknown evasion techniques, even when they are applied on multiple protocol levels, increasing your protection against advanced persistent threats and other undesirable traffic.

Centralized management — A single, powerful management platform optimizes and centrally controls all of the firewalls throughout your corporate infrastructure and remote sites, making security management more efficient and lowering TCO. Administrators can build and apply rules for complex environments — including software, physical, or virtual devices — without the burden of a complex UI. You gain real-time visibility into your security posture with actionable reports and visualizations from a single management system.

High availability and scalability — Support the security demands of data centers that need to deliver uninterrupted uptime with no gap in protection. Built-in traffic load balancing and clustering capabilities allow for native active-active clustering and load balancing for up to 16 nodes, where nodes can be different models and different OS that support operating speeds up to 120 Gbps — without requiring a third-party clustering or load balancing product. This flexible design delivers high availability and high throughput to allow demanding deployments to get the most out of next-generation firewall technology.
