Hillstone Networks, the world-renown provider of cybersecurity solutions, has been named an innovation and growth leader in the 2023 Frost Radar™ Next Generation Firewalls Report.

The report, produced by Frost & Sullivan, offers market analysis that assesses industry players through the lenses of growth strategy, innovation, customer experience, and market share. This report serves as a valuable resource with the objective of aiding businesses in informed decision-making for their next-generation firewalls (NGFW) solution needs.

Why was Hillstone Networks recognized by the report?

According to Frost & Sullivan, the security perimeter concept has completely morphed due to cloud computing, remote work, edge devices, and other digital transformation initiatives.

NGFWs today lack the visibility, scalability, and ability to set consistent policies across these hybrid work environments. This means that NGFWs are morphing in their capabilities. Frost states there is consolidation and expansion into adjacent security solutions like “software defined-wide area network (SD-WAN), cloud access security broker (CASB), secure web gateway (SWG), zero trust network access (ZTNA), and NGFW into a SASE bundle.”

Hillstone Networks’ NGFW products delivers a future-ready security architecture to adapt to infrastructure expansion and drive business growth. It provides the foundation for a zero-trust architecture to support new tech and defend against advanced cyber-attacks.

“With the help of a sophisticated AI engine, Hillstone empowers firms to analyze and detect encrypted traffic without decryption, improving the overall efficiency and accuracy of threat detection,” said Martin Naydenov, Senior Industry Analyst – Cybersecurity at Frost & Sullivan.

“Hillstone displays a strong vision and expansion strategy, embracing global Mega Trends such as cloud computing. As a result, it continues to release new solutions, such as Cloud Workload Protection, partnering with major cloud providers Amazon Web Services and Azure to improve security across hybrid IT environments,” Martin Naydenov further commented.

What does the recognition mean for Hillstone Networks?

“We are in great company with our inclusion as a leader in the Frost Radar™ 2023 Report. As the broader tech landscape evolves, so do the challenges in securing our digital infrastructure. Being acknowledged in the NGFW Frost Radar report reaffirms our dedication to engineering advanced solutions,” commented Tim Liu, CTO and Co-founder at Hillstone Networks.

“We’re proud to stand at the forefront of next-gen firewall development, where our technical prowess intersects with our commitment to fortifying cyber defenses. This only deepens our resolve to push boundaries, innovate, and elevate the standards of network security.”
