Run NG Firewall in Amazon Web Services (AWS)

NG Firewall is perfect for cloud-connected organizations. While cloud-integrated infrastructure can bring savings and efficiency, it can also bring risk. With NG Firewall, it’s easy to create a network security mesh between your headquarters, remote locations and the public cloud—ensuring safe, reliable, performant network connectivity and protection for your data, applications and users.

With NG Firewall, you’ll ensure business reliability and continuity by ensuring secure connectivity to business-critical, cloud-hosted applications and enjoy peace of mind knowing that NG Firewall inspects all traffic bi-directionally with layer 7 application profiling, advanced malware detection powered by ScoutIQ™ threat intelligence, intrusion prevention, web & application filtering, and full bandwidth shaping.

What is FWaaS?

Firewall as a Service (FWaaS) is a new way to deliver firewall and other network security capabilities as a cloud service. FWaaS provides a simpler and more flexible architecture to leverage centralized policy management, content filtering, bandwidth shaping, malware and threat protection, and other firewall and unified threat management capabilities.

public cloud - how it works

Why FWaaS is important?

Organizations with dispersed locations often rely on physical appliances at each location, which can be costly, inefficient, and difficult to maintain without a large IT staff. With FWaaS, a single firewall can filter an entire organization, no matter their location. If one office uses more resources than another, bandwidth is seamlessly scaled to meet the needs of all locations, ensuring uninterrupted service and zero downtime. By utilizing FWaaS, organizations no longer need to worry about maintaining hardware or applying patches and updates as this task falls on the FWaaS provider, ensuring the organization’s network is always secure.

Gartner, a leading research and analyst firm, has named FWaaS as an emerging technology in the 2017 Magic Quadrant for Unified Threat Management (SMB Multifunction Firewalls) Report. In a client survey, 14% of respondents indicated they were likely or very likely to consider moving all the firewall security functions to FWaaS.

Why Consider FWaaS?

NG Firewall is the solution of choice for managing cloud-connected infrastructure, multiple locations, worksites, or customers—ideally suited to the distributed enterprise and managed service providers.

  • Moves the network security processing and traffic analysis normally done by an on-premise next-generation firewall or unified threat management system to the cloud, changing budgeting requirements from CapEx to OpEx.

  • Offers rapidly scalable performance not limited by on-premise hardware, enabling flexible capacity for changing environments. Ensures security measures take precedence over hardware concerns.

  • Enables SD-WAN scenarios, so many organizations consider FWaaS in the context of other secure networking demands.

It’s easy to blend FWaaS with on-premise deployments. Untangle enables you to choose either solution for a given site or network, yet manage both on-premise and cloud deployments from a single dashboard with Command Center.
