Protection and performance go hand-in-hand for Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFWs). Organizations should not have to sacrifice throughput and productivity for security. Outdated firewalls pose a serious security risk to organizations since they fail to inspect data payload of network packets. To address this deficiency, many firewall vendors adopted the malware inspection approach used by traditional desktop anti-virus: buffer downloaded files, then inspect for malware. This method not only introduces significant latency and but also poses significant security risks since temporary memory storage can limit the maximum file size.
