The E-Series Provides Granular Application Control with Comprehensive Threat Detection and Prevention.

Enterprise-Grade Firewalls

Hillstone E-Series next generation firewalls provide visibility and control of web applications regardless of port, protocol, or evasive action. It can identify and prevent potential threats associated with high-risk applications while providing policy-based control over applications, users, and user-groups. Policies can be defined that guarantee bandwidth to mission-critical applications while restricting or blocking inappropriate or malicious applications. Hillstone E-Series firewalls incorporate comprehensive network security and advanced firewall features. They provide superior price performance, excellent energy efficiency, and a smaller size when compared to competing products.

Key Product Benefits of Hillstone E-Series — Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFW)

Granular Application Control

Hillstone E-Series firewalls provide fine-grained control of web applications regardless of port, protocol, or evasive action. It can identify and prevent potential threats associated with high-risk applications while providing policy-based control over applications, users, and user-groups. Security Policies can be defined that guarantee bandwidth to mission-critical applications while restricting or blocking unauthorized or malicious applications.

Comprehensive Threat Detection and Prevention

Hillstone E-Series firewalls provide real-time protection for application and network attacks including viruses, spyware, worms, botnets, ARP spoofing, DoS/DDoS, Trojans, buffer overflows, and SQL injections. It incorporates a unified malware detection engine that shares packet details with multiple security defenses (IPS, URL filtering, and Anti-Virus), which significantly reduces latency.
