Hillstone NGFWs Recognized for 8th Straight Year in Gartner® Magic Quadrant™, Named as a “Visionary”


We are delighted to announce that Hillstone’s next-gen firewalls have been recognized for the eighth straight year in the 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Network Firewalls*. For the first time, Hillstone is positioned  highest for the ability to execute in the Visionaries quadrant.

Since releasing the industry’s first artificial intelligence (AI)-based firewall in 2013, we’ve been listed in the Niche Players quadrant in the Gartner Magic Quadrant every subsequent year. In that time, we’ve continuously improved the AI and machine learning (ML) technologies used in our firewalls as well as in other products such as the server Breach Detection System (sBDS). In addition, we’ve heavily invested in cloud security – CloudHive was one of the first micro-segmentation solutions for the private cloud, and CloudEdge one of the first virtual NGFW solutions to support major public clouds and NFV infrastructure.

Earlier this year, we released a new generation of firewalls, the A-Series Next Generation Firewall, which supports a security data lake for threat hunting, forensics and other uses, as well as cloud-based threat intelligence and even more powerful and useful AI and ML capabilities. And, our new iSource extended detection and response (XDR) solution expands cybersecurity from the network edge to encompass the entire enterprise network and infrastructure.

In short, at Hillstone, innovation never stops.

We believe that our recognition this year is a significant acknowledgement of the vision of our leadership and product development teams. For our customers, we’d like to think it’s a further confirmation of our commitment to bringing you the flexible, robust and comprehensive cybersecurity solutions you need to defend your network and assets, from edge to cloud and everything in between.

We’re honored by this recognition and committed to continuing to develop innovative security solutions. Download the Gartner report to learn more.
