Traditionally, firewalls were devices assigned the task to control the traffic that is allowed to enter or exit a point within the network, either by a stateful or stateless method. Other common features of a traditional firewall include support for Network Address Translation (NAT), Port Address Translation (PAT), and Virtual Private Network (VPN) termination, as well as being able to provide a high level of availability and performance with a combination of a network topology within these firewalls.
There are a lot of changes going on within the enterprise, including paradigm shifts related to how applications are used and transported. Though this change is a huge advantage from the usability perspective, it could be a nightmare for the information security department.
In came the Next Generation Firewall or NGFW as it is popularly known, and changed the game. With added features like Application Awareness, Stateful inspection from layer 2 through layer 7, Identity Awareness (user and group control), Transparent or InLine modes and most popular, Integrated IPS functionality, with more Visibility.
