Managing network security has grown exponentially complex over the last few years. Applications pierce through the old-generation firewalls, BYOD makes it difficult to control what is running on the inside of your network and Cloud usage makes borders fuzzy.
The market is crowded with Unified Threat Management and Next-Generation Firewall appliances but far from all products are as good as their marketing message.

Managing modern Cloud-based networks increases the management complexity exponentially with its unclear network borders. At the same time, Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) removes traditional control mechanisms. To make an already difficult situation worse, applications have evolved and become more pervasive, piercing through the firewall over common Web-ports, such as port 80 and 443, leaving the network and security managers unable to rely on their legacy firewalls to keep them safe.
Unmanaged devices is a challenge for administrators and often leads to uncontrolled application sprawl. BYOD puts additional demand on having efficient and granular network control.
As more and more organizations use Cloud-based services, it becomes increasingly more difficult to define strict policies based on “inside” and “outside” of the network.
Almost all applications today use the Web ports (80 and 443). Applications punche holes in the traditional port-based firewalls, which does not differentiate between regular Web usage and unwanted applications.
Cyber vandals or cyber criminals target vulnerable companies that are using out-dated security products, either for financial gain or out of sheer maliciousness.
There is a wide range of products offered on the market today. What is the difference between each one of the solutions and how do you tell the difference between good marketing and good products? Here is an overview of the three main approaches for network security gateways.
Clavister True Next-Generation Firewall is a unique combination of a rock-solid firewall and state-of-the-art next generation features, such as Deep Application Control that enables control of In-App actions and meta-data extraction.
Mature and Robust Enterprise Firewall
Clavister has more than 18 years of experience and maturity of its technology.
Deep Application Content Control (DACC)
Clavister DACC goes beyond normal application control and offers the ability to see and control individual features and actions inside the actual application. This includes extracting meta-data, such as tags related to a YouTube video or name of a file being transfered using Dropbox.
User Awareness and Control
Clavister has a wide range of features to authenticate or seamlessly identify users. This enables a more powerful control but also event log/reporting capability. Rather than focusing on ports, IP addresses and similar traits, the security policies can be based on who the user is regardless of where in the network the user is currently located.
Flexible Configuration and Scalability
Clavisters products can be fine-tuned using very detailed and object-based configuration format. This ensures that the product can match your needs and adapt to it rather than vice-versa. This is critical for a seamless integration with your network without compromises.
Powerful Reporting and Actionable Intelligence
Sustainable security requires constant improvements. To understand the traffic in your networks and identify risks and improvement areas it is necessary to easily analyze historical and real-time events. For this reason Clavister products comes with a powerful reporting and log analyzis solution integrated with the management interface.
