Forcepoint NGFW 6200 Series appliances offer highperformance connectivity and protection as well as the scalability needed for data centers and large campus networks. With up to 17 40-Gigabit Ethernet ports, the 6200 Series can be used in mixed clusters of as many as 16 devices to deliver unrivaled high availability and fast access for VPNs.

Forcepoint NGFW provides multiple layers of security. It has built-in IPS with anti-evasion defenses, accelerated encrypted inspection, file scanning, exploit detection, mission-critical application proxies and more. Forcepoint’s cloud-assisted Advanced Malware Detection (sandboxing) and dynamic URL Filtering can be enabled in moments. Forcepoint’s CASB, Web, Email and DLP Security serve as ideal complements for the ultimate level of protection.

All Forcepoint NGFW systems are administered via the Forcepoint NGFW Security Management Center (SMC). It provides centralized provisioning, rapid configuration and holistic monitoring of up to 2,000 devices in even the most distributed enterprise. SMC’s high-level “Smart Policies” map business processes into security controls faster and more accurately than low-level firewall rules and enable changes to be made throughout the network in minutes. Fully customizable, interactive visualizations give administrators continuous 360° visibility to quickly identify and resolve incidents.
