Next Generation Firewall (NGFW)

Netronome Agilio SmartNICs accelerate NGFW designs by offloading a wide range of networking and security processing tasks such as the ability to detect applications and apply application-specific security policies. Additional offloads include user/identity awareness, embedded rule-based Intrusion Detection System (IDS)/ Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), malware monitoring, traditional access control enforcement, and stateful firewall in conjunction with hardware-accelerated VPNs, L2 switching, L3 routing, and network address and port translation (NAPT).
