New Intelligent Next-Generation Firewall Technology Finds and Stops Threats in Minutes, Not Months
RSA Conference USA 2015
SUNNYVALE, Calif. & AMELIA ISLAND, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Hillstone Networks, a leading provider of enterprise network firewall solutions, is showcasing its new Intelligent Next-Generation Firewalls (i+NGFW) at RSA Conference 2015. The company’s innovative security platform combines the company’s unique Behavioral Intelligence technology with high-performance networking, enabling businesses to find and stop threats in minutes, not months. Hillstone Networks, which is positioned in Gartner’s Enterprise Network Firewalls Magic Quadrant*, now has more than 10,000 customers around the world. It recently established its North American headquarters in Silicon Valley to bring a new level of intelligence, performance and affordability to network security for mid-market businesses. The company is demonstrating its new security platform in Booth S1027 at RSA Conference 2015 in San Francisco, April 20-24, 2015.
“Traditional Next-Generation Firewalls are no match for today’s sophisticated Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs), Zero-Day Attacks, BYOD-transmitted malware, and insider leakage. It’s not uncommon for resulting breaches to go undetected for weeks or even months. As a result, many businesses are now demanding faster ways to detect threats and enforce new security policies to stop attacks,” said Tim Liu, CTO and Co-Founder, Hillstone Networks. “Hillstone’s new Intelligent Next-Generation Firewalls add a critical layer of Behavioral Intelligence that makes it possible to find and stop threats within minutes of an attack.”
Hillstone’s Behavioral Intelligence brings together four technologies:
- Continuous Monitoring of traffic to track network risk in real time.
- Behavioral Analysis of users and applications to find anomalies.
- Statistical Clustering to identify unknown variants of malware.
- Interactive Forensics to speed up root cause analysis after attacks.
These capabilities enable organizations to more rapidly detect, visualize, and protect against modern and emerging threats. Hillstone’s security appliances can be deployed standalone or as complements to existing network defenses.
Hillstone is one of a new breed of network security vendors emerging from the Asia-Pacific market. The advanced technology and attractive price-performance delivered across the company’s product line have enabled Hillstone to amass more than 10,000 customers around the world. Now, the company is expanding into North America to make networking intelligent, fast and affordable, particularly for mid-market businesses.
“Hillstone is known around the globe as a pioneer in Intelligent Next-Generation Firewalls for the enterprise and data center,” said Lingling Zhang, Vice President of Marketing & Business Development, Hillstone Networks. “We’re excited to have people see the benefits of our approach for themselves and to introduce ourselves as ‘the biggest network security company you haven’t heard of yet’.”
Hillstone is presenting the following products in Booth S1027 at RSA Conference 2015: the Hillstone T-Series of Intelligent Next Generation Firewalls designed for mid-to-large enterprises; the Hillstone X-Series of high-performance Data Center Firewalls; and the Hillstone Virtual Elastic Security Appliance (vESA), massively scalable software that efficiently protects east-west traffic in highly virtualized environments.
