Remediation can become a lengthy and expensive process when restoring systems after a security incident. This can add up to weeks or months of effort in even mid-sized environments. Therefore, it is vital to choose a NGFW that is able to pinpoint the exact troubling areas so that remediation can be performed within minutes.
Easy to use
Simple security is the best form of security. A NGFW or any security solution should be simple to deploy, configure and manage, as well as cost effective and equipped with automation capabilities to minimise human intervention, hence freeing up time and resources for other project implementations.
Above all, a NGFW must offer effective defense against emerging threats and visibility into user activity and use of the network.
