Right security solution is indispensable need of any organization in order to protect their network and infrastructure from continuously evolving cyber threats. The concept of firewall is not new. It is in fact traced down since long with the proliferation of advanced and unknown cyber threats. Since its inception, the firewall market has improved in leaps and bounds to overcome the deficiencies and challenges present in its last generation counterpart.
For maintaining the confidentiality of data in all the industry verticals especially in mission critical sectors, the government has defined certain regulations to be strictly followed. These compliances are driving the firewall market and necessitate its adoption across the globe. Furthermore, increasing complexities in enterprise network, cloud computing, and mobilization of work force demands sophisticated security solutions. In addition to that, enterprises are also looking for cost effective and easily deployable security solution. For such features, UTM have gained traction in SMBs but due to its incapability of providing application awareness functions and solutions for large enterprises, NGFW is gaining significant traction among large enterprises with its advanced features such as web filtering, deep packet filtering, IPS-IDS, and policy control at granular level. Hence, enterprises are replacing traditional firewall with NGFW and focusing on its penetration in SMEs by providing them with cost effective and easily deployable security solutions with uncompromised functionalities.
As the organizations are deploying firewalls solutions from different vendors, complexities are arising in the network infrastructure because of different functionalities and requirements such as throughput, bandwidth, and speed. Hence, different vendors such as Imperva, Palo Alto, Sophos, and Zoho Corp are providing firewall management software and are emerging as niche players in the market. Other major players in the firewall ecosystem include CheckPoint technologies, Cisco, Dell, Fortinet, Imperva, Juniper Networks, McAfee, Microsoft, PaloAlto, and WatchGuard.
