For many corporations, the enterprise edge is the first line of defense against ongoing threats. As part of Hillstone’s comprehensive portfolio of security products our Edge Protection solutions provide top-of-the-line protection against multi-stage, multi-layer attacks. Our Edge Protection products help mitigate infrastructure breaches that expose sensitive user and corporate data, as well as the threat to operations from ransomware.

Built on a future-ready platform, Hillstone’s NGFW solutions blend blazing high-performance with advanced threat protection and intelligent policy operation. And Hillstone NIPs provides flexible deployment options for both inline and passive deployment modes, leveraging application-awareness for one of the highest detection accuracy rates in the industry without sacrificing performance.

Our edge product suite provides industry-leading protection with a superior TCO. With expansion capabilities that extend both networking connectivity and storage capacity, Hillstone’s edge protection line scales from small branches to large campuses to carrier-class multi-tenant data centers.

Edge security is the security process of providing protection for data that locates or transported out of protective boundaries of the corporate network. With the rapid growth of Internet of Things (IoT) devices, mobile devices, and diverse network points, security concerns have also drastically increased due to the expanded attack surfaces, as well as the massive incoming and outgoing traffic.
Edge security solves these problems by providing a built-in security stack as a network administrator, satisfying multiple needs of security, high performance and low network latency while processing the enormous amount of data being generated and consumed at the edge.

Creating a Comprehensive Edge Security Plan

As edge computing allows for hundreds of entry points for security attacks, an edge security system is essential to protect data that is located in or moves through edge devices.
Our edge product suite provides industry-leading protection with a superior TCO. With expansion capabilities that extend both networking connectivity and storage capacity, Hillstone’s edge protection line scageles from small branches to large campuses to carrier-class multi-tenant data centers.
