Introducing StoneOS 5.5R7: Address the Latest Challenges in Cyber Security

Today, we’re excited to announce StoneOS 5.5R7, the latest version of the software that powers our next-generation firewalls. Stone0S 5.5R7 delivers more than 100 critical features that power our Enterprise Security and Risk Management solutions to provide visibility, intelligence and protection across the network, from edge to cloud, including connected IoT devices. Hillstone security solutions are a future looking platform that allows organizations to comprehensively see, thoroughly understand and rapidly act against cyber-threats.

Below are few highlights from Stone0S 5.5R7.

Ensuring the IoT Security Posture

As IoT strengthens in adoption across businesses and industrial sectors, securing the ingest of data from these devices will be indispensable in ensuring the overall security of critical network assets. One particular IoT deployment scenario is the IP camera and NVR (Network Video Recorder) system; and the latest StoneOS delivers protection for these interconnected IP cameras and NVRs.

Streamlining Policy Operations

Policy operations and maintenance can be a burdensome overhead with respect to manual tasks and difficult decision making. With the new updates in StoneOS, network security admins can easily deploy detailed policies, disable invalid polices, understand policy hit trends and make adjustments on the fly – efficiently.

Robust Reports Tailored for Different Audiences

A tailored-to-needs report is essential to enterprise security management for many reasons. In the latest update to StoneOS, you can take advantage of flexible report templates based on business needs and audience type. It is also freshly redesigned with a new presentation layout with multiple exporting formats to fit multiple viewing requirements. More powerful data analysis delivers further forensics to support business decisions.


Security is a constant vigilance, and our solutions continue to evolve to stay ahead of the curve. Along with the IoT security and features highlighted above, and in keeping with a future oriented platform, StoneOS delivers a broad range of other features with the objective of delivering an optimal user experience, while improving the overall security posture of businesses. Some of the more salient features are highlighted below:

  • Endpoint Integration: An open architecture easily integrates with other third-party Endpoint Security solutions, monitoring endpoint status and traffic in order to control access and network usage.
  • Application Monitoring and Analysis: Detailed application statistics and comprehensive analysis with graphic presentation and exporting capability, across all firewall products, that allows easy understand and troubleshooting of threats.
  • SSL Proxy Optimization: Optimized SSL Proxy performance; SSL Proxy filter rule configuration and more detailed SSL Proxy information improves proxy management efficiency.
