Re: Firewall help

See in simple definations:

Application firewall : Looks like a proxy. You can stop th attack smaller no of amount.

Ex: Linux proxy or older days Checkpoint.

Deep Inspection Firewall: It detects/protects signature based attack, worms etc. Ex: IDS and IPS. It supports large amount of attacks at a time.

Re: Firewall help

Thanks purohit,

so basically what you are saying is that app firewalls are designed for smaller attacks whereas deep inspection firewalls are designed for more advanced attacks?

Both the firewalls do need separate engines for each application layer protocol they support right?

Thanks,

Re: Firewall help

Hi,

If you have IDS Sendor, it detects the attack and IPS pushes the policy based on signature blocked.

Thanks,
