This high accolade underscores Sangfor’s consistent ability to deliver cutting-edge firewall products that effectively tackle real-world cybersecurity challenges.

A Glimpse into Sangfor’s Performance

 

TLS/SSL Functionality

 

TLS/SSL encryption is crucial for securing web traffic, with over 80% of traffic now encrypted. However, this encryption can hide malicious payloads, making threat detection harder, and expose the network to protocol vulnerabilities. Firewalls must provide visibility into encrypted traffic and address these weaknesses.

 

Sangfor Network Secure demonstrates strong performance in this area, supporting decryption to detect threats, all top 10 ciphers, and preventing weak ciphers. It also allows for decryption bypass exceptions to maintain regulatory privacy, ensuring it effectively detects threats while managing encrypted traffic securely.

 

Threat Prevention

 

Threat prevention in the Enterprise Firewalls test covers false positives, exploit protection, and resistance to evasions. Each factor is vital for overall security effectiveness.

 

False Positives

 

False positives occur when benign events are wrongly flagged as threats, causing unnecessary disruptions. Sangfor Network Secure shows impressive accuracy, correctly identifying 1609 out of 1610 files and all 966 sites. These near-perfect results highlight its ability to accurately differentiate between legitimate and malicious activities, significantly reducing false alerts and ensuring smooth operations.

 

Exploit Protection

 

An exploit is an attack that targets software vulnerabilities to breach and control systems. Firewalls must be able to block these attacks to protect critical business systems. Sangfor Network Secure demonstrates strong performance, blocking463 out of 482 client-initiated attacks and 1008 out of 1027 server-initiated attacks, achieving an overall 97.48% success rate. This high detection rate highlights its effectiveness in safeguarding both client and server systems from various threats.

 

Resistance to Evasions

 

Threat actors use evasion techniques to disguise and modify attacks, making them difficult for security products to detect. A firewall’s ability to resist these techniques is crucial for maintaining robust security. According to a test report, handling evasions is challenging, and the 2024 test was the most comprehensive to date. Sangfor Network Secure blocked all 760 client-initiated and 809 server-initiated evasions, achieving a perfect score of 100%. This demonstrates its effectiveness against sophisticated, modified attacks, ensuring robust network protection.

 

Cost of Tested Configuration

 

Cost-effectiveness is a key consideration for organizations aiming to maximize security within budget constraints. Sangfor offers a highly cost-effective solution, with a Price per Protected Mbps of $1.57 over three years, the lowest among competitors. This indicates Sangfor delivers excellent value, making it an attractive option for enterprises seeking to maximize their cybersecurity investment without compromising protection.
