Today the enterprise gateway is more than a firewall. It is a security device presented with an ever-increasing number of sophisticated threats. As an enterprise security gateway it must use multiple technologies to control network access, detect sophisticated attacks and provide additional security capabilities like data loss prevention and protection from web-based threats. The proliferation of mobile devices like smartphones and Tablets and new streaming, social networking and P2P applications requires a higher connection capacity and new application control technologies. Finally, the shift towards enterprise private and public cloud services, in all its variations, changes the company borders and requires enhanced capacity and additional security solutions.
