Forcepoint NGFW Appliance Certifications

Unified operation and high performance

Powered by a unified core, Forcepoint Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) Appliances offer consistent capabilities and management across all environments. Forcepoint NGFW appliances are designed for efficiency, availability and security, and have a broad range of built-in (no additional licenses or installation required) security features including: VPN, IPS, NGFW and even mission-critical application proxies. These appliances provide an additional cost benefit because they can be repurposed quickly for a longer lifetime than single-purpose devices.

Physical Appliances

Forcepoint NGFW appliances support a wide range of customizable network interfaces (see Appliance Specifications) and mixed clustering of different models, which makes it possible to upgrade hardware and software in the cluster with zero downtime. All models run unified Forcepoint NGFW software, which provide consistent capabilities, high performance and centralized management. Forcepoint NGFW appliances are designed for use in the most rigorous networks (see Certifications).

All appliances (except the 100 series) can be deployed as either a Layer 2 or Layer 3 firewall or next generation intrusion prevention system (IPS). Most models have extensible networking interfaces (including bypass modules), which allow for configurations changes throughout the device’s life span.

IDC: The Business Value of Forcepoint Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) Solutions

In a recent study, IDC analyzed the business value and benefits of supporting network operations with Forcepoint NGFW solutions. The research included interviews with eight organizations relying upon Forcepoint’s NGFW to connect and protect their networks and business operations. IDC created a model based upon their analysis to identify the costs and real benefits of deploying Forcepoint NGFW.
