Effective cloud security demands solutions, controls, and countermeasures that are created for the cloud. After all, the cloud exposes digital assets to different kinds of risk from those hosted on traditional on-premises infrastructure. The Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) is particularly relevant in defending cloud-based data and applications. An NGFW virtual appliance adds threat intelligence, application awareness, and advanced threat protection, among other features, to cloud security capabilities.
This report explores the selection factors that prospective NGFW virtual appliance buyers should consider when choosing a solution for cloud environments. As PeerSpot sees things, the top six selection criteria include factors like integration, visibility, automation, flexibility and more. The right NGFW virtual appliance for cloud environments will also be scalable, offering strong performance, ease of use and an attractive return on investment (ROI).
