A Visionary! Sangfor now recognized as a

After 7 consecutive years in the prestigious “Gartner Magic Quadrant for Network Firewalls” Sangfor Technologies is proud to announce that they have been named as a “Visionary” Vendor in the “2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Network Firewalls” for the first time in their long career with Gartner Inc. Sangfor NGAF’s innovative and powerful functionality continues to protect dynamic workplace environments and provide enhanced security for enterprises across the globe.

As per Gartner, “Visionaries show strong vision and market-leading innovation in relation to, among other things, securing work-from-home users, ensuring the security of workloads, enabling east-west segmentation in public cloud and software-defined networking environments, and automating threat detection.

Sangfor NGAF Enhanced Architecture & Features

Sangfor NGAF is both the world's first AI-enabled Next-Generation Firewall and the first to include a fully integrated Web Application Firewall (WAF). NGAF provides all-around protection from new and unknown threats and powered by innovations like Neural-X and Engine Zero. 10 years after Sangfor’s recognition in the Gartner Magic Quadrant, and 7 years after its recognition in the Enterprise & Network Firewalls Magic Quadrant, NGAF is still moving forward with new innovations and product capabilities, evolving to meet the needs of an ever-changing security threat landscape. Sangfor’s newest NGAF includes completely redesigned AI technology, improved performance and stability, and of course, superior network and application security protections.

Sangfor NGAF has always been innovative, with new features like complete endpoint and application traffic visibility, enhanced XDDR coordinated defence with other Sangfor products like Cyber Command, and an updated user interface (UI) to improve ease of use. It actively seeks out and identifies threats using ground-breaking integrated cloud-based deception, human-machine identification, on-demand vulnerability detection and many other new technologies.

Security & Cloud Make Sangfor the NGAF Market Leader

Digital transformation and cloudification continues to sweep the enterprise world, and with it a sharp increase in critical bandwidth utilization, while network boundaries become increasingly blurred. Data centres are answering the call using NGAF for increased availability, while meeting greater needs for increased stability and security.

As the cyber threat landscape continues to darken, NGAF is ready for combat and annihilation of security threats. NGAF provides multiple lines of network & application defence, more offensive security functions, and third-party integration, all in an easy to manage solution designed to actively identify threats and neutralize them.

Next-Generation Cloudification with FWaaS

Sangfor NGAF’s innovative threat detection technology, recognized as “Most Secure NGFW (AAA)” by CyberRatings, uses AI detection, semantic detection, in-depth analysis of traffic entering the network, and AI-based rapid identification for blocking of both known and unknown threats. With industry-leading application containment & proxy avoidance protection and “one-click” handling of security events, NGAF administrators have immediate relevant remediation recommendations for any potential security event.

Sangfor NGAF has embraced the cloud by evolving into Firewall-as-a-Service (FWaaS), providing a virtual defence solution with all the same functionality as on-premise while supporting a wide variety of cloud platforms. And, both NGAF and FWaaS have hybrid integration providing extensive cloud security features including NDR, SD-WAN, endpoint security and advanced threat detection.
