NGFW 2019 Comparative Report: Security Value Map (SVM)

This Comparative Report provides an aggregated view of the detailed findings from this NSS Labs group test. Enterprise security decision makers can use the report to determine the relative value of security investments.

NGFW 2019 Comparative Report: Performance

This Comparative Report provides key metrics on multiple factors affecting the overall performance of the device, including UDP throughput and latency, concurrency, transactions per second, HTTP capacity, single application flows, and SSL/TLS performance.

NGFW 2019 Comparative Report: Security

This Comparative Report provides detailed results on security effectiveness, ranging from exploit block rate, anti-evasion capabilities, stability and reliability, and script-based obfuscation. By testing multiple security capabilities, NSS Labs is able to accurately represent the overall protection products provide.

NGFW 2019 Comparative Report: Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)

This Comparative Report provides the enterprise with Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and TCO per Protected Mbps metrics. While TCO is important, the TCO per Protected Mbps metric goes even further by factoring NSS-Tested Throughput and Security Effectiveness into TCO. This more accurately represents the true cost of owning a security network product.

Test Reports (subscription required)

Each of our reports is based on thousands of repeatable test cases. Test Reports enable enterprise security teams to understand the impact of features and limitations across different products. These reports are used to shortlist products for further evaluation and proof-of concept testing.
