What's the best way to rate the effectiveness of your NGFW? Harsh, thorough testing. NSS Labs does this by using standardized methodology to put every device through its paces--a process that the Forcepoint™ Stonesoft® NGFW passed with flying colors. A battery of security tests gave it strong ratings for firewall policy enforcement, application control and resistance to evasion techniques across many different attack types. Other processes validated packet throughput, stability and reliability over time. To see how well the Stonesoft NGFW will perform for your IT team, the NSS Labs report also goes into detail on its ease of deployment and configuration, timeliness and accuracy of alerts, effectiveness of reporting and low total cost of ownership.
