Sangfor NGAF specializes in ransomware detection and helps to protect our network from ransomware threats and malware. This is the primary reason we purchased this solution, and we are currently negotiating to upgrade our appliances to volume M5200 Series. Additionally, Sangfor NGAF provides a web application for financial software.

Sangfor is an on-prem firewall I use for my local infrastructure. It is used as an aggregated interface. Behind Sangfor, I have built a data center that is deployed on high availability using a model that is 5100 CV with 10 gig ports.

Sangfor NGAF is our gateway to the ISP. We also use it to filter the website that our employees deploy to the firewall and for access to our systems through the web.

The firewall is connected to the directory. It offers domain authentication if you want to connect to the internet. It helps our users' website connect to our internet service.

We mainly use this solution as a firewall. A few years ago we had some data loss due to a virus, so this solution protects us from viruses, controls the track rate and detects these kinds of malware. We are very satisfied with the solution.

Hi community,  Is it required in your company to conduct a security review before purchasing a firewall? Also, do you need to perform reviews after (how often)? What are the common materials you use in the review? Do you have any tips or advice?  Any pitfalls to watch out for?

Yes, I recommend doing a security review regularly. Not necessarily before a firewall purchase unless you have not done one lately. Having the results of the review will help you understand what capabilities you need in a firewall. As an example, if you get a ton of login attempts from outside your country of origin but have no customers or partners outside the country you will want to have "country blocking" capabilities. There are a number of tools that can be used for evaluations. We currently use RMM and Security tools from SolarWinds. We have other tools as well. To perform a security review you have to have tools do the work. It simply is not possible for an individual to perform a thorough check without significant automation. We offer this as a service as well. Pro's: SolarWinds has a free version of some of the useful tools such as SIEM Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) Tool. You can rent some tools by going though a partner (such as us Con's: Tools to purchase are a bit expensive. Performance checks that RMM uses is not accurate on large busy machines. Support leaves much to be desired.

The only question for a review would be based on your requirements. For example, does the firewall meet Common Criteria standards or other security controls. Generally, we suggest pursuing a NGFW and our initial recommendation is Fortinet. Good news is the NSS results put Fortinet as the #1.
