The Hardware

Convenient form factors with models to meet the most demanding requirements.

Multi-Dimensional Granular Control

Hillstone’s E-Pro Series provides admins with rich security features and flexible controls. The E-Pro Series provides precise identification and application-aware control through deep application inspection to intelligently and accurately identify thousands of applications and help admins identify security risks across multiple dimensions. It supports a rich set of user authentication methods, including local, TACACS+, RADIUS, LDAP, and authentication based on password, SMS, certificates, token or email. It allows fine-grained user control such as access control, application limits, and bandwidth guarantees. The E-Pro Series NGFW can accurately identify the geographic location of the source/destination IP of an attack, which enables access control to block attacks. The E-Pro Series provides granular control of data in transit, protecting organizations from the leakage of critical, sensitive, or confidential data and files.

Comprehensive Threat Detection and Prevention

Hillstone’s E-Pro Series NGFW provides intrusion prevention based on analysis of attacks and deep inspection of applications and protocols, which secures Layers 2-7 of the network by effectively filtering security threats such as viruses, Trojan horses, worms, spyware, vulnerability attacks, and evasion attacks. The E-Pro Series uses an optimized attack identification algorithm to mitigate DoS/DDoS , which ensures the security of the network and the availability of business applications. Hillstone’s NGFW offers advanced web attack protection, which not only prevents web attacks such as SQL injection and cross-site scripting, but also defends against web page tampering and similar exploits. The stream scanning based virus detection engine enables low-latency and high-performance filtering in HTTP/HTTPS, FTP, SMB, various mail transfer protocols and compressed files. URL filtering can help network administrators easily control browsing of malicious URLs. A variety of management and controls can prevent malicious activities concealed in SSL-encrypted traffic including email. Cloud Sandbox, an advanced threat detection engine, can emulate the execution environment and analyze all activities related to malicious files, identify advanced threats and provide comprehensive threat reports as well as rapid remediation.

 Full-concurrence and High-performance Architecture

Hillstone’s E-Pro Series NGFW delivers high performance with a unique approach, allowing organizations to take advantage of its high throughput, low latency, and high concurrency. Full-concurrence packet processing technology performs all security checks and analysis in a single pass, which reduces processing overhead for complex security features, while delivering consistently high performance. The best-of-breed architecture and proprietary algorithms of Hillstone’s StoneOS optimize the session load across all CPU cores to take full advantage of multiple cores.

Advanced Networking Capabilities

Hillstone’s E-Pro Series NGFW integrates advanced network adaptability with consistent security enforcement across diverse network environments. Dynamic detection and inbound SmartDNS functions intelligently load balance traffic across multiple links. It significantly improves link utilization and delivers an improved user experience without compromising security. The routing table can be dynamically adjusted according to the network conditions with support of protocols such as RIP, OSPF and BGP. The E-Pro Series also enables high VPN performance through the built-in hardware acceleration capability for large-scale IPsec/SSL VPN deployments.

Unified and Centralized Management

Hillstone’s E-Pro Series NGFW supports centralized management via the Hillstone Security Management Platform (HSM). Unified policy management, device configuration management, and real-time security monitoring simplifies deployment, reduces response time for security incidents, improves operational efficiency and reduces TCO. Hillstone’s E-Pro Series NGFW also supports the cloud-based Hillstone CloudView security management and analytics platform, which provides real-time monitoring, analysis and alarming of hardware, traffic trends, ranking of apps and users, as well as threat information via a unified web portal or mobile app.
