Sangfor – Firewall is a network security system that monitors and controls incoming and outgoing network traffic based on predetermined security rules. A firewall typically establishes a barrier between a trusted network and an untrusted network, such as the Internet.
The term firewall originally referred to a wall intended to confine a fire within a line of adjacent buildings. Later uses refer to similar structures, such as the metal sheet separating the engine compartment of a vehicle or aircraft from the passenger compartment. The term was applied in the late 1980s to network technology
One way to deal with malware attacks is to activate the anti-malware feature on the firewall. However, on some firewalls, not all malware has been blocked, there are still some malware that managed to escape
One of the causes is the incomplete and out-of-date malware signature database on the firewall. If the malware is not successfully blocked, the malware will be installed on the user’s PC which will result in reduced PC performance and the possibility of theft of personal data.
Good news for you Sangfor users, because Sangfor has released the latest firmware for their NGAF firewall, coded version 8.0.26, bringing advanced malware protection features. In the demo advanced malware protection can block malware by more than 85%, more than other vendors which only reached 65%.
With this figure, it is unlikely that malware will escape, in contrast to other vendors, with a percentage rate that only reaches 65%, it is very likely that a lot of malware is not blocked. The figures achieved by the advanced malware protection are the result of refreshing the malware signature database in version 8.0.26
In conclusion, nowadays types of malware, such as viruses, spyware, and ransomware are growing very fast, with their diverse and complex signatures, firewalls are required to be kept up to date in order to protect IT infrastructure from malware attacks.
