Today's targeted threats are often multi-vectored and exploit unknown vulnerabilities - their sophistication defying typical signature-only based inspection. Whether APTs or client-side threats, they use evasive techniques to penetrate our organizations, often purporting to be or riding on applications and exploiting trust relationships with which we've grown all too comfortable with.
One relatively new arrival, the next-generation firewall (NGFW), typically combines the ability to identify and control application use with classic firewall functions. However, there is wide variance in what 'next-generation' really encompasses. This paper identifies crucial components that many deem elementary to true next- generation technology and that are required for effective protection from today's advanced persistent threats.
