What is one benefit of using a next-generation firewall rather than a stateful firewall?

  • reactive protection against Internet threats
  • support of TCP-based packet filtering
  • support of logging
  • integrated use of an intrusion prevention system (IPS)

Explanation: Stateful firewalls and next-generation firewalls provide better log information than a packet filtering firewall, both defend against spoofing, and both filter unwanted traffic. Next-generation firewalls provide the following benefits over stateful firewalls:

  • Granularity control within application​s
  • Website and application traffic filtering based on site reputation
  • Proactive rather than reactive protection from Internet threats
  • Enforcement of security policies based on multiple criteria including user, device, role, application, and threat profile
  • Improved performance with NAT, VPN, and stateful inspections
  • Integrated IPS
