firewalls in Hyderabadfirewalls sales in Hyderabadfirewall sales in HyderabadContact:TECHSMART IT SOLUTIONS - (99491 97311)www.techsmartitsolutions.commohammad@techsmartitsolutions.comWe TECHSMART IT SOLUTIONS deals with various brands of Firewall like CYBEROAM FIREWALL, SONICWALL FIREWALL, FORTINET OR FORTIGATE FIREWALL, CISCO FIREWALL, WATCHGUARD, ZYWALL.Firewalls are computer security systems that protect your office/home PCs or your network from intruders, hackers & malicious code. Firewalls protect you from offensive software that may come to reside on your systems or from prying hackers. In a day and age when online security concerns are the top priority of the computer users, Firewalls provide you with the necessary safety and protection.Firewalls are software programs or hardware devices that filter the traffic that flows into you PC or your network through a internet connection. They sift through the data flow & block that which they deem (based on how & for what you have tuned the firewall) harmful to your network or computer system.When connected to the internet, even a standalone PC or a network of interconnected computers make easy targets for malicious software & unscrupulous hackers. A firewall can offer the security that makes you less vulnerable and also protect your data from being compromised or your computers being taken hostage.Firewalls are setup at every connection to the Internet, therefore subjecting all data flow to careful monitoring. Firewalls can also be tuned to follow "rules". These Rules are simply security rules that can be set up by yourself or by the network administrators to allow traffic to their web servers, FTP servers, Telnet servers, thereby giving the computer owners/administrators immense control over the traffic that flows in & out of their systems or networks.Rules will decide who can connect to the internet, what kind of connections can be made, which or what kind of files can be transmitted in out. Basically all traffic in & out can be watched and controlled thus giving the firewall installer a high level of security & protection.A firewall is a network security system, either hardware- or software-based, that uses rules to control incoming and outgoing network traffic.A firewall acts as a barrier between a trusted network and and an untrusted network. A firewall controls access to the resources of a network through a positive control model. This means that the only traffic allowed onto the network is defined in the firewall policy; all other traffic is denied.A firewall is a network security system designed to prevent unauthorized access to or from a private network. Firewalls can be implemented in both hardware and software, or a combination of both. Network firewalls are frequently used to prevent unauthorized Internet users from accessing private networks connected to the Internet, especially intranets. All messages entering or leaving the intranet pass through the firewall, which examines each message and blocks those that do not meet the specified security criteria.Packet firewallsThe earliest firewalls functioned as packet filters, inspecting the packets that are transferred between computers on the Internet. When a packet passes through a packet-filter firewall, its source and destination address, protocol, and destination port number are checked against the firewall's rule set. Any packets that aren't specifically allowed onto the network are dropped (i.e., not forwarded to their destination). For example, if a firewall is configured with a rule to block Telnet access, then the firewall will drop packets destined for TCP port number 23, the port where a Telnet server application would be listening.Packet-filter firewalls work mainly on the first three layers of the OSI reference model (physical, data-link and network), although the transport layer is used to obtain the source and destination port numbers. While generally fast and efficient, they have no ability to tell whether a packet is part of an existing stream of traffic. Because they treat each packet in isolation, this makes them vulnerable to spoofing attacks and also limits their ability to make more complex decisions based on what stage communications between hosts are at.Stateful firewallsIn order to recognize a packet's connection state, a firewall needs to record all connections passing through it to ensure it has enough information to assess whether a packet is the start of a new connection, a part of an existing connection, or not part of any connection. This is what's called "stateful packet inspection." Stateful inspection was first introduced in 1994 by Check Point Software in its FireWall-1 software firewall, and by the late 1990s, it was a common firewall product feature.This additional information can be used to grant or reject access based on the packet's history in the state table, and to speed up packet processing; that way, packets that are part of an existing connection based on the firewall's state table can be allowed through without further analysis. If a packet does not match an existing connection, it's evaluated according to the rule set for new connections.Application-layer firewallsAs attacks against Web servers became more common, so too did the need for a firewall that could protect servers and the applications running on them, not merely the network resources behind them. Application-layer firewall technology first emerged in 1999, enabling firewalls to inspect and filter packets on any OSI layer up to the application layer.The key benefit of application-layer filtering is the ability to block specific content, such as known malware or certain websites, and recognize when certain applications and protocols -- such as HTTP, FTP and DNS -- are being misused.Firewall technology is now incorporated into a variety of devices; many routers that pass data between networks contain firewall components and most home computer operating systems include software-based firewalls. Many hardware-based firewalls also provide additional functionality like basic routing to the internal network they protect.Firewalls in the perimeterless ageThe role of a firewall is to prevent malicious traffic reaching the resources that it is protecting. Some security experts feel this is an outdated approach to keeping information and the resources it resides on safe. They argue that while firewalls still have a role to play, modern networks have so many entry points and different types of users that stronger access control and security at the host is a better technological approach to network security.Virtualization strategies such as virtual desktop infrastructure can dynamically respond to different scenarios by offering tailored access control to applications, files, Web content and email attachments based on the user's role, location, device and connection. This approach to security does provide additional protection that a firewall can't, but information security requires defense-in-depth, and firewalls still offer essential low-level protection as well as important logging and auditing functions.Firewalls use 3 types of filtering mechanisms:• Packet filtering or packet purity Data flow consists of packets of information and firewalls analyze these packets to sniff out offensive or unwanted packets depending on what you have defined as unwanted packets. • Proxy Firewalls in this case assume the role of a recipient & in turn sends it to the node that has requested the information & vice versa. • Inspection In this case Firewalls instead of sifting through all of the information in the packets, mark key features in all outgoing requests & check for the same matching characteristics in the inflow to decide if it relevant information that is coming through.Firewall RulesFirewalls rules can be customized as per your needs, requirements & security threat levels. You can create or disable firewall filter rules based on such conditions as:• IP Addresses Blocking off a certain IP address or a range of IP addresses, which you think are predatory. What is my IP address? Where is an IP address located? • Domain names You can only allow certain specific domain names to access your systems/servers or allow access to only some specified types of domain names or domain name extension like .edu or .mil. • Protocols A firewall can decide which of the systems can allow or have access to common protocols like IP, SMTP, FTP, UDP, ICMP, Telnet or SNMP. • Ports Blocking or disabling ports of servers that are connected to the internet will help maintain the kind of data flow you want to see it used for & also close down possible entry points for hackers or malignant software. • Keywords Firewalls also can sift through the data flow for a match of the keywords or phrases to block out offensive or unwanted data from flowing in. Types of Firewall• Software firewalls New generation Operating systems come with built in firewalls or you can buy a firewall software for the computer that accesses the internet or acts as the gateway to your home network. • Hardware firewalls Hardware firewalls are usually routers with a built in Ethernet card and hub. Your computer or computers on your network connect to this router & access the web. SummaryFirewalls are a must have for any kind of computer usage that go online. They protect you from all kinds of abuse & unauthorised access like trojans that allow taking control of your computers by remote logins or backdoors, virus or use your resources to launch DOS attacks.Firewalls are worth installing. Be it a basic standalone system, a home network or a office network, all face varying levels of risks & Firewalls do a good job in mitigating these risks. Tune the firewall for your requirements & security levels and you have one reason less to worry.Hardware and Software FirewallsFirewalls can be either hardware or software but the ideal configuration will consist of both. In addition to limiting access to your computer and network, a firewall is also useful for allowing remote access to a private network through secure authentication certificates and logins.Hardware firewalls can be purchased as a stand-alone product but are also typically found in broadband routers, and should be considered an important part of your system and network set-up. Most hardware firewalls will have a minimum of four network ports to connect other computers, but for larger networks, business networking firewall solutions are available.Software firewalls are installed on your computer (like any software) and you can customize it; allowing you some control over its function and protection features. A software firewall will protect your computer from outside attempts to control or gain access your computer.Common Firewall Filtering TechniquesFirewalls are used to protect both home and corporate networks. A typical firewall program or hardware device filters all information coming through the Internet to your network or computer system. There are several types of firewall techniques that will prevent potentially harmful information from getting through:• Packet Filter: Looks at each packet entering or leaving the network and accepts or rejects it based on user-defined rules. Packet filtering is fairly effective and transparent to users, but it is difficult to configure. In addition, it is susceptible to IP spoofing.• Application Gateway: Applies security mechanisms to specific applications, such as FTP and Telnet servers. This is very effective, but can impose a performance degradation.• Circuit-level Gateway: Applies security mechanisms when a TCP or UDP connection is established. Once the connection has been made, packets can flow between the hosts without further checking.• Proxy Server: Intercepts all messages entering and leaving the network. The proxy server effectively hides the true network addresses.In practice, many firewalls use two or more of these techniques in concert. A firewall is considered a first line of defense in protecting private information. For greater security, data can be encrypted.Next Generation Firewall (NGFW)A newer class of firewalls, next generation firewall - NGFW, filters network and Internet traffic based upon the applications or traffic types using specific ports. Next Generation Firewalls (NGFWs) blend the features of a standard firewall with quality of service (QoS) functionalities in order to provide smarter and deeper inspection. A class of firewalls designed to filter network and Internet traffic based upon the applications or traffic types using specific ports. The application-specific granular security policies provided by Next Generation Firewalls help them detect application-specific attacks, giving them the potential to catch more malicious activity than more traditional firewalls.Next Generation Firewalls (NGFWs) blend the features of a standard firewall with quality of service (QoS) functionalities in order to provide smarter and deeper inspection. In many ways a Next Generation Firewall combines the capabilities of first-generation network firewalls and network intrusion prevention systems (IPS), while also offering additional features such as SSL and SSH inspection, reputation-based malware filtering and Active Directory integration support.The traditional stateful firewall filters traffic based upon ports and protocols. For example, blocking or allowing the entire port 80 for HTTP traffic or port 443 for HTTPS traffic. It’s an "all-or-nothing" approach.Newer firewall technology can also filter traffic based upon the applications or traffic types traversing these ports. For example, you could open port 80 for only select HTTP traffic, for those specific applications, sites, or services you allow. Think of it as blending the firewall and quality of service (QoS) functionalities into one solution.These application-aware firewalls are commonly cited as a next-generation firewall (NGFW) but they are, basically, a form of a unified threat management (UTM) solution. However, the term UTM is usually applied to products that lack the true application-awareness and are targeted towards the SMB market. UTM products usually offer additional functions over traditional firewalls, such as antivirus, antispam, or even intrusion prevention systems (IPS).The fine-tuning of traffic provided by NGFWs can help in both security and bandwidth control aspects. Since they’re smarter and provide deeper inspection, they have the potential to catch more malicious activity. They can also serve as content filters and provide QoS functions, so higher priority applications receive higher priority bandwidth. Along with the general need for better overall security, NGFWs are in demand due to the increase of cloud services and outsourced software as a service (SaaS) providers.Common characteristicsHere are the common features of most NGFWs:Standard firewall features: They include the traditional (first-generation) firewall functionalities such as stateful port/protocol inspection, network address translation (NAT), and VPN.Application identification and filtering: This is the chief characteristic of NGFWs. They can identify and filter traffic based upon the specific applications, rather than just opening ports for any and all traffic. This prevents malicious applications and activity from using non-standard ports to evade the firewall.SSL and SSH inspection: NGFWs can even inspect SSL and SSH encrypted traffic. They can decrypt traffic, make sure it’s an allowed application and check other policies, and then re-encrypt it. This provides additional protection from malicious applications and activity that try to hide using encryption to avoid the firewall.Intrusion prevention: Being more intelligent and with deeper traffic inspection, they may also be able to perform intrusion detection and prevention. Some next-gen firewalls might include enough IPS functionality that a stand-alone IPS might not be needed.Directory integration: Most NGFWs include directory support (i.e., Active Directory). For instance, to manage authorized applications based upon users and user groups.Malware filtering: NGFWs can also provide reputation-based filtering to block applications that have a bad reputation. This can possibly check phishing, virus, and other malware sites and applicationsPalo Alto Networks: This is one of the first vendors to release an application-aware firewall. Their proprietary technologies include App-ID, User-ID, and Content-ID: App-ID classifies known and unknown applications traversing any port and protocol via clear-text or encrypted SSL or SSH connections; User-ID adds support of user and group policies via most all enterprise directories on the market in conjunction with the network-based User-ID agent; and Content-ID provides the real-time content inspection and filtering, URL filtering, and IPS functionality.Barracuda Networks: Their Barracuda NG Firewall series combines NGFW and VPN technologies. It features application controls, intrusion prevention, Web filtering, antivirus, antispam, and network access control.Juniper Networks: Their AppSecure software suite adds NGFW capabilities to their SRX Services Gateway. The application-awareness is provided by the AppTrack component. The AppFirewall and AppQoS components provide the traffic control and policy enforcement. Then the AppDoS and IPS components provide protection against attacks and malicious activity.WatchGuard: They offer solutions for both the enterprise and medium-sized business environments. In addition to application control and IPS, they feature VPN, URL filtering, antispam, and antivirus functionality.NGFWs provide a thorough job of inspecting and filtering network traffic. They let you fine-tune exactly what type of content you want to allow or block, apply per-user policies regarding content, and provide intrusion prevention and reputation-based functions to stop attacks and malicious activity.Though the technologies and products are still young, enterprises and businesses should begin the process of migrating to NGFWs.Introduction to next-generation firewalls in the enterpriseRecent security breaches to some of the largest and seemingly most secure network environments beg the question: Are existing protection mechanisms sufficient enough to deter unauthorized access to critical assets?While some feel that traditional firewalls, antivirus software and intrusion prevention systems (IPS) have lost their usefulness, these security technologies are, in reality, still very much in use -- and needed. However, more robust, effective and, especially, integrated products are often required to keep up with those that threaten today's network infrastructures.Enter next-generation firewalls (NGFWs).NGFWs are integrated network security platforms that consist of in-line deep packet inspection (DPI) firewalls, IPS, application inspection and control, SSL/SSH inspection, website filtering and quality of service (QoS)/bandwidth management to protect networks against the latest in sophisticated network attacks and intrusion.NGFWs are not traditional firewallsUnlike NGFWs, traditional packet-filtering firewalls only provide protection at Layer 3 (network) and Layer 4 (transport) of the OSI model. They include metrics to allow and deny packets by discriminating the source IP address of incoming packets, destination IP addresses, the type of Internet protocols the packet may contain -- e.g., normal data carrying IP packets, ICMP (Internet Control Message Protocol), ARP (Address Resolution Protocol), RARP (Reverse Address Resolution Protocol), BOOTP (Bootstrap Protocol) and DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) -- and routing features.Although firewalls are placed between the Internet and an internal network inside the DMZ, attackers have found ways to circumvent these controls and cause considerable damage before detection. Meanwhile, traditional firewalls often necessitate having to install separate IPS, Web application firewalls (WAFs), secure coding standards based on the Open Web Application Security Project's (OWASP) Top 10 vulnerabilities, strong encryption at the Web layer (SSL/TLS), and antivirus and malware prevention.Having to deploy, manage and monitor this unwieldy number of network security products to mitigate multiple heterogeneous attack vectors is challenging, to say the least. In addition, this diverse array of security products can compromise each other's functionality at the expense of broadband resource usage, response times, monitoring and maintenance requirements.NGFWs address these issues by providing a single-vendor product with a common management process that includes multiple security services. It is, for the most part, a more cost-effective and pragmatic approach to network security.Optimal NGFW products must have three characteristics: be comprehensive, flexible and easy to use. Yes, this sounds oxymoronic, but achieving this trifecta is very doable for NGFW vendors.First, NGFWs must be comprehensive, so that they include IPS, antivirus/malware prevention, application control, deep packet inspection and stateful firewalls (the former inspects incoming packets, the latter, outgoing), encryption, compression, QoS, and other capabilities. One drawback NGFWs need to overcome is the reluctance many enterprises have of relying on a single point of failure for network security.Second, NFGWs must be flexible, which also means scalable, so that features can be modularized and activated based on need.Andthird, NFGWs must be easy to use, with a fairly intuitive management interface that provides a clean and easy-to-read dashboard, feature activations, rule set definitions, configuration analysis, vulnerability assessments, activity reports and alerts.Today's NGFWs make up a cadre of network security products that purport to offer these three characteristics. Although NGFW services are listed with commonly named features (e.g., DLP, application control and threat intelligence), a close look shows some variation between NGFW vendor products. For example, those NGFWs that offer mobile device security will admit this is not a mobile device management (MDM) product. They can identify mobile devices and operating systems, provide policy enforcement based on apps, users and content, and even extend a VPN tunnel to prevent malware, but they do not provide total device management as offered by MDM products.Meanwhile, some NGFW features are more robust and advanced than others. So it is incumbent upon customers to carefully vet the features of individual NGFW products to determine the best fit for them. For example, not all NGFWs provide two-factor authentication or mobile device security, but then, not every customer needs those features. And while there are those NGFWs that say they support such features, some might require additional modules or products to make them work.Unified Threat Management (UTM)We TECHSMART IT SOLUTIONS Provide UTM Security Solutions with various brands like SONICWALL, SOPHOS, CYBEROAM, CISCO, FORTIGATE, WATCHGUARD, JUNIPERUnified threat management (UTM) is an approach to security management that allows an administrator to monitor and manage a wide variety of security-related applications and infrastructure components through a single management console.Unified threat management (UTM) technology delivers comprehensive protection and simplifies security management, all without slowing your network.
