Firewalls White Papers

A Firewall is a piece of hardware and/or software which functions in a networked environment to prevent some communications forbidden by the security policy, analogous to the function of firewalls in building construction. A firewall is also called a Border Protection Device (BPD), or packet filter in BSD contexts. A firewall has the basic task of controlling traffic between different zones of trust.

DDoS attacks are the primary threat to the availability of your network. In 2014, the number of DDoS attacks continues its trend upward in both size and complexity. Today, attacks topping 100Gbps have become common. So have complex threats such as application-layer attacks against DNS and encrypted Web services. Taxing security teams even more is the rise in multi vector attacks which target applications, existing stateful infrastructure like Firewalls and IPS devices and upstream connectivity, all in a single sustained attack.

In this whitepaper, noted industry analyst Richard Stiennon examines the emerging requirement in the ongoing arms race with threat actors. Despite years of investment in multiple layers of security defenses, every organization is still wide open to targeted attacks. It is practically impossible to stop all possible attacks. Even next-generation firewalls, complete alerting and logging collected in a SIEM, and universal patch management and vulnerability discovery has proven to be ineffective against threat actors who are motivated, skilled and determined. This paper answers the critical questions about security analytics and explains why it is one of the fastest growing product categories in security.

À medida que a tecnologia de firewall de próxima geração (NGFW, next-generation firewall) se populariza, é necessário analisar as funções e os recursos avançados que separam os “líderes” dos “atrasados”. Nos termos mais básicos, o consenso sobre a definição do NGFW incluiria as seguintes capacidades: recursos de firewall padrão como conversão de endereços de rede e inspeção com monitoramento de estado, prevenção de intrusões integrada, reconhecimento de aplicativos e algum nível de inteligência e integração com bancos de dados de vulnerabilidades e reputações.

Este livro apresenta uma visão geral da segurança de rede e explica como os criminosos virtuais podem usar métodos ocultos e atualmente indetectáveis para invadir sistemas de rede protegidos. As técnicas de evasão avançadas (AETs, Advanced Evasion Techniques) conseguem passar pelas soluções de segurança de rede comuns atuais. Elas podem transportar ataques ou explorações, passando pelos dispositivos de segurança de rede e firewalls, firewalls de próxima geração, sistemas de detecção e prevenção de intrusões e até mesmo roteadores que executam inspeção aprofundada de pacotes. Neste livro, você aprenderá tudo sobre as AETs, além de obter informações e dicas para ajudar a proteger sua empresa. Se você trabalha no governo, na área militar, no setor financeiro, industrial, comércio eletrônico ou outros setores com infraestrutura crítica, leia este livro para conhecer o inimigo e saber como se proteger melhor contra as evasões avançadas.
