Older generation firewalls slow down with increased bandwidth. However as new and increasingly sophisticated cyber risks are revealed virtually daily, dynamic networks need protection from attacks, especially as the number of devices and apps on them keeps growing. An Untangle NG Firewall Complete software subscription attacks all these problems by providing a single modular platform that fits the evolving needs of small a business's network rather than bogging it down with multiple point solutions.
