The Disadvantages of Legacy Firewalls

As organizations use dynamic cloud and hybrid environments, reliance on legacy firewall appliances for security limits their agility, speed to policy creation and enforcement, and the ability to scale their operations. The need for streamlined and more effective segmentation alternatives to legacy firewalls is urgent.

Firewalls: The Old Way

Slow & Complex

Rules based on IP address and ports are too coarse and complex

Expanding Attack Surface

More use of cloud and new deployment models like containers

Escalating Costs

Scaling up high-throughput firewall appliances is expensive
