McAfee Next Generation Firewall protects enterprise networks with high-performance intelligence-aware security supported by real-time updates from the McAfee Security Connected ecosystem. This enables McAfee to deliver the industry’s best defense against advanced evasions, along with complete next generation firewall protections when and where customers need it — remote sites, branch offices, data centers, and the network edge.


McAfee Next Generation Firewall starts with a solid foundation of protections including granular application control, intrusion prevention system (IPS), built in virtual private network (VPN) and deep packet inspection—all in an efficient, extensible and highly scalable unified design. Then Intel Security adds powerful, anti-evasion technologies that decode and normalize network traffic—before inspection and across all protocol layers—in order to expose and block the most advanced attack methods.
