A New Class of Firewall - Internal Segmentation Firewall (ISFW)

Because traditional Firewalls have been architected to slower speeds of the Internet Edge, it's hard to deploy these security devices internally. The solution is a new model of Firewall - Internal Segmentation Firewall (ISFW) that sits at strategic points of the internal network.

It provides Network Segmentation inside the perimeter – it may sit in front of specific servers that contain valuable intellectual property or a set of user devices or web applications sitting in the cloud.
