On June 6, 2017, NSS Labs published its annual 2017 Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) Test Report and Security Value MapTM (SVM). For the first time in five years, NSS Labs did not place SonicWall in its “Recommended” quadrant of the SVM. In response, SonicWall immediately resolved the identified issues, automatically updated our firewalls worldwide, and was then publicly retested by NSS Labs to place in its upper right quadrant.

In most organizations, the same issue is being felt – how can network security be increased without lowering performance within a budget? How much risk is acceptable? If your organization is not facing this issue, you should be looking at the growth of encrypted web traffic (https) and cloud computing and how your current firewall maintains performance and/or efficacy in this new environment.

Living the life of a chief security officer (CSO), chief information security officer (CISO) or any title with the word “security” in it nowadays is surely a heart-wrenching experience each day. Far too often, yet another data breach in the news reminds you of the obvious notion that it’s not a matter of if but when you’ll be called upon to manage and contain a security incident in your organization.

Beyond basic network firewall testing scenarios, the specialized firewall testing tools needed to accurately assess next-generation firewall (NGFW) security effective remain out of reach to any but the largest IT department budgets. Therefore, most organizations look to independent hands-on test results from respected research laboratories such as NSS Labs. NSS Labs uses a very specific testing methodology that is run on each of the NGFWs being tested.

The SonicWall Security Threat Research team sifts through hundreds of thousands of unique malware samples daily. In their latest threat report, they’ve documented that businesses continue to be under attack in ways that are increasingly difficult to defend against. We often see threat actors using combinations of evasion techniques and modifying their attacks vectors to circumvent firewalls and intrusion detection systems.
