Hillstone Networks is recognised for its Intelligent Next Generation Firewalls and for its incredible performance on the NSS Labs Next Generation Firewall report. They achieved a NSS Labs recommended status with the best value per protected Mbps of all the tested Next Generation Firewalls.

"This value is what our customers are looking for in the market today" says Jeroen Dubbelman MD of Bitrate. "South Africa is experiencing very tough conditions economically and enterprises are constantly searching for a combination of quality and cost effectiveness."

Hillstone Networks's performance speaks for itself. The product line covers multiple facets of information security including next generation firewalls, intrusion prevention systems, server breach detection, virtual firewalls for the edge and micro-segmentation. Hillstone Networks also covers both private and public cloud environments.

The solution set is mature with carrier grade quality and functionality. Hillstone Networks caters for the small to medium sized organisations, as well as large enterprises and service providers/carriers with a comprehensive range of solutions.

"Hillstone Networks is awesome to see in action as it includes Abnormal Behaviour Detection in its T-Series range that helps graphically map and understand the Kill Chain" says Dubbelman. "There is additional functionality like Link Load Balancing and Server Load Balancing which further increases the value of the solution".

Today, enterprise network security professionals understand the importance of having comprehensive layered defences. From direct monetary threats like ransomware where the lifeblood of the enterprise, its data and applications are being held hostage, to socially engineered threats including phishing, pretexting, tailgating, baiting and Quid Pro Quo, the goal of the attacker is essentially the same: to extract something of value from the network.

As threats and networks have become increasing more complex, defending against the expanded attack surface makes defence geometrically more complex. Hillstone's Layered Threat Protection is a portfolio of products that will help you keep your business more secure. Today, more than 14 000 enterprise networks worldwide rely on Hillstone solutions making it safer choice for your business.
