[Shenzhen, China, January 12, 2023] Recently, Gartner, a global IT research and consulting firm, released the 2022 Magic Quadrant for Network Firewalls report1. Huawei has been listed for ten consecutive years in this report and named as a Challenger for six consecutive years.

Huawei Named Again as a Challenger in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Network Firewalls

Intelligent technology and 96%+ advanced threat detection rate for building solid security boundaries: Provides comprehensive threat detection capabilities, such as intrusion prevention, antivirus, anti-DDoS, and URL filtering; leverages the patented intelligent threat detection algorithm and interworks with the cloud database containing billions of threat samples, enabling automatic generation and update of millions of signatures every day; offers 96%+ detection rate of advanced threats, such as ransomware, 100-layer hybrid compression, and multi-layer hidden viruses, as well as 85%+ default blocking rate.

Integrating zero trust, SD-WAN, and SRv6 capabilities: Provides SD-WAN capabilities, including intelligent uplink selection, load balancing, and multi-type VPN capabilities; allows IPv4/IPv6 dual-stack defense and SRv6 capabilities; functions as a core component of security solutions such as zero trust and Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) to continuously build core competitiveness of various solutions.

Cloud-edge collaboration, on-demand loading of security capabilities, and Adaptive Security Engine (ASE) for elastic resource orchestration: Supports on-demand loading of multiple capabilities, such as collaboration with Huawei Qiankun Security CloudService, cloud log audit service, vulnerability scan service, and expert O&M, to reduce the number of hardware security products deployed, save customer investment, and minimize O&M difficulties. The built-in ASE dynamically allocates service resources based on security service conditions on the live network, preventing the firewall from being overloaded when multiple security services are deployed. This maximizes resource utilization while ensuring the optimal protection effect.
