With the recent exhaustion of the IPv4 address space, many organizations are interested in learning more about the migration to IPv6. This document examines the major benefits of IPv6 and the rate of adoption of IPv6 around the world. It also provides an overview of some of the major challenges organizations face with IPv6, and how Fortinet supports IPv6 today.
As many network administrators initiate their IPv6 migration projects, other IT professionals do not know where to begin. This white paper first describes the importance of securing the network against IPv6 threats well before the introduction of any IPv6 traffic. It then outlines the steps involved to begin securing a transitional IPv4/IPv6 network.
The SRX Series features a carrier-grade next-generation firewall with layered security services such as application security, unified threat management (UTM), integrated IPS, and advanced integrated threat intelligence to guard against cyber threats and malware.
Tighter security requirements and ever-faster networks are placing extraordinary demands on UTM platforms. In order to accelerate network traffic while blocking new threats, enterprises must deploy specialized hardware/software security devices.

The Cisco ASAs and point solutions were not cutting it. The 3-person IT team needed a solid multi-layered solution that was easy to manage and could consolidate many processes within one device. Learn how WatchGuard provided an easy to manage answer.
The problem with the vast majority of network and endpoint security solutions is that they operate on the premise of static whitelists and blacklists. These lists do not account for the changing nature of URLs, IPs, files and applications, nor for the volume of unknown threats permeating the web, meaning they cannot be used to provide adequate protection.
Compounding this problem is that commercial network security technology, such as NGFWs and unified threat management systems, can easily flood the organizationís network security teams with too many alerts and false positives, making it impossible to understand and respond to new threats. As a result, not only do these threats evade the security technology and
land with the victimís infrastructure, but they also have plenty of time to steal sensitive data and inflict damage to the victimís business. The final characteristic of the latest attacks is how quickly they compromise and exfiltrate data from the organization, compared to the

The need for threat-focused next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) that can effectively mitigate risks that traditional unified threat management (UTM) and point solutions cannot is highlighted by numerous studies, including one from Cisco that reported that every organization should assume it has been hacked. Cisco threat researchers found malicious traffic was visible on 100 percent of the corporate networks that they observed, with evidence that adversaries had often penetrated those networks and were frequently operating undetected over a long period.
