Hillstone Networks protects the networks of small to large enterprises with layered security

SUNNYVALE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Hillstone Networks, a leading provider of network firewall solutions, today announced it has been named to Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls* as well as the Magic Quadrant for Unified Threat Management (SMB Multifunction Firewalls) for the fourth consecutive year.

Networks and critical assets need to be protected from multiple postures: server front, at the perimeter and in the cloud, for a layered security defense – this is what Hillstone delivers. Hillstone has broadened its approach from a network-centric security provider to one of layered protection offering solutions that protect and monitor at the perimeter, in the cloud down to the virtual machine, as well as the server front.

Specifically for the cloud and virtual use cases, Hillstone CloudHive leverages micro-segmentation for VMware networks along with CloudEdge, a virtual firewall appliance for networks that are virtualized or access via a cloud. In addition, the Hillstone portfolio of firewall solutions are now available for hybrid networks such as deployments with a mix of on-premises, cloud and virtualized environments.

Hillstone’s innovative security platform combines Behavioral Intelligence with high-performance networking, stopping threats within minutes, and protecting the network.

“The threat landscape is a dynamic and most sophisticated one, and it takes more than a point product to ensure the safety of businesses and critical assets,” said Tim Liu, CTO and Co-Founder, Hillstone Networks. “Hillstone’s vision has always been to be one step ahead of hackers and malignant threats by delivering technology that understands the characteristics and behavior of ever-morphing threats. With our behavioral analysis tools, our solutions quickly learn the behavior of new threats and adapt in order to protect.”

The 2017 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls as well as the June 2017 Magic Quadrant for Unified Threat Management (SMB Multifunction Firewalls) reports are available to Gartner clients at www.gartner.com.
