Cyber Security Network Protection
Introduction to Cyber Security
Cyber security is the practice of defending computers, servers, mobile devices, electronic systems, networks, and data from malicious attacks. It’s also known as information technology security or electronic information security.
The scale of the cyber threat
The global cyber threat continues to evolve at a rapid pace, with a rising number of data breaches each year. A report by RiskBased Security revealed that a shocking 7.9 billion records have been exposed by data breaches in the first nine months of 2019 alone. This figure is more than double (112%) the number of records exposed in the same period in 2018.
With the increase and growing amount of HTTPS traffic produced today, organizations need to keep this type of daily traffic monitored. TLS decryption strategies are effectively blind to the near 90% of HTTPS traffic that’s encrypted, and consequently are exposed to targeted malware campaigns and data loss. Fortigate NGFWs deliver security driven networking to achieve full visibility into applications, threats, and networks, protecting any edge with industry validated best of breed security to keep operations running and achieve. Flat networks weaken when attacked because they don’t offer any advanced security inspection. FortiGate NGFWs deliver network-based segmentation to reduce the attack surface and inhibit the ability of an attack to spread laterally within the network, securing any segmentation (micro-, macro-, port- or application-based) with automated workflows, adaptive trust, and high-performance threat protection to achieve defence in depth, compliance and Trusted Application Access. The majority of malware propagates by using known vulnerabilities and is a major cause of attacks. FortiGate NGFWs offer consolidated IPS without degrading performance to provide virtual patching and prevent against known and zero-day attacks
What is a Next-Generation Firewall? We have Solutions for a on Premise appliances, Cloud based solutions, Local AV and secure WLAN/LAN and SD WAN Next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) filter network traffic to protect an organization from internal and external threats. Along with maintaining features of stateful firewalls such as packet filtering, IPsec and SSL VPN support, network monitoring, and IP mapping features, NGFWs possess deeper content inspection capabilities. These capabilities provide the ability to identify attacks, malware, and other threats, and allow the NGFW to block these threats. NGFWs provide organizations with SSL inspection, application control, intrusion prevention, and advanced visibility across the entire attack surface. As the threat landscape rapidly expands due to co-location and multi-cloud adoption, and businesses grow to satisfy escalating customer needs, traditional firewalls fall further behind, unable to offer protection at scale, and leading to poor user experience and weak security posture. NGFWs not only block malware, but also include paths for future updates, giving them the flexibility to evolve with the threat landscape and keep the network secure as new threats arise. Next-generation firewalls are a vital component of implementing network security.
