3 Ways OPSWAT NetWall is Better Than a Firewall
Discover how OPSWAT’s NetWall is a more reliable and secure network security solution than a traditional firewall in this whitepaper.
OPSWAT NetWall is Resilient to Common Firewall Vulnerabilities
Here are some of the ways OPSWAT NetWall keeps your network more secure than a traditional firewall.
A common firewall vulnerability occurs when users or attackers gain unauthorized access to a system. NetWall enforces proper network segmentation while replicating data in real time from the trusted network to the untrusted network, eliminating the need for direct access to critical systems that perform data analysis.
Misconfiguration is the most common firewall vulnerability. Common mistakes include leaving ports open or misconfiguring rules and exposing the firewall to attacks. NetWall is configurable at installation, and no additional configuration or policy updates are needed.
Outdated firewall software leads to exploitable vulnerabilities. The architecture of NetWall is resistant to software vulnerabilities because attackers cannot establish a connection from the untrusted network back to the trusted network.
