10 Things Your Next Firewall Must Do are

The next-generation firewall is well defined by Gartner as something new and enterprise-focused. It is “incorporating full-stack inspection to support intrusion prevention, application-level inspection and granular policy control.”
Most network security vendors are now offering application visibility and control. They do it by either adding application signatures to their IPS engine, or offering you an add-on license for an application control module. In either case, these options are additive to a port-based firewall. They do little to help you focus on the fundamental tasks your firewall is designed to execute.
