Hillstone Networks Certifies Next-Generation Firewall With Trend Micro Deep Discovery

Adaptive protection based on content analysis provides real-time targeted threat defense

November 21, 2014 SUNNYVALE, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Hillstone Networks, a leading provider of enterprise network firewall solutions, and recently positioned in the Enterprise Network Firewalls Magic Quadrant released by Gartner, Inc.*, today announced a new technology certification with Trend Micro, a global leader in security software.

The certification verifies the compatibility between Hillstone and Trend Micro Deep Discovery, resulting in interoperability with Hillstone’s intelligent next-generation firewall (iNGFW) for adaptive protection of systems and applications with Trend Micro Deep Discovery Inspector, which was recently awarded the top score in Breach Detection by NSS Labs. Hillstone Networks is the first tested and certified partner to leverage the Deep Discovery Inspector.

The certification addresses the following gaps in existing point products:
—Share intelligence across detection devices and firewall services for the most holistic and comprehensive protection
—Detecting threats and blocking malware from infecting systems, applications and endpoint devices
—Prioritizing threat insights to determine action based risk level

“We are very pleased to be able to demonstrate that our market-leading platform for detecting targeted attacks interoperates with Hillstone’s intelligent next-generation firewall,” said Kevin Simzer, senior vice president of marketing and business development, Trend Micro. “As threats become increasingly advanced, automating threat discovery with a responsive firewall to protect against attacks in real-time will help keep customers as safe as possible.”

Hillstone’s firewall solution provides granular visibility and control of the network traffic, based on real-time behavioral anomaly detection and advanced data analytics. Its patented behavior reputation index (BRI) and network health index (NHI) technology provide real-time traffic analysis to identify threats and abnormal behavior in the network. Trend Micro Deep Discovery Inspector capabilities include detection of targeted attacks and advanced threats including zero day exploits, advanced malware, command and control, attacker behavior and more. Trend Micro Deep Discovery shares its detection intelligence with Hillstone iNGFW, which provides real-time threat mitigation. Together, this provides an adaptive security platform that not only detects, but blocks advanced threats.

“Customers want a holistic approach to meet their increasingly sophisticated security challenges,” said Lingling Zhang, vice president of marketing at Hillstone Networks. “This interoperability addresses the challenges that most enterprise customers face today. Working with strategic partners such as Trend Micro, extends our adaptive technology to the content, beyond the firewall.”
