Here comes the release of NG Firewall 15.0 by Untangle with the creators claiming top-notch security for SMB assets. Let’s thoroughly discuss the latest NG Firewall update.
With that being said, it only makes sense to first introduce this software to the readers who aren’t familiar with it. As the name ‘NG Firewall’ suggests, it is indeed a firewall but a very powerful one. It is a Debian-based and network gateway designed for small to medium-sized enterprises.
If you want to be up-to-date with the latest firewall technology, your best bet would be to opt for this third-generation firewall. Another factor that distinguishes the NG Firewall from other such products in the market is that it combines network device filtering functions and traditional firewall technology.
The Untangle NG Firewall platform and free applications are released under the GNU General Public License (GPL). The complete package is part of the proprietary EULA.
If you need more reasons to be impressed, let’s have a look at what the latest update of this firewall brings to the table.
What’s New in NG Firewall 15.0
Without any doubt, the main highlight of this update is the fact that the firewall can now provide additional security to SMB assets against the evolving threats of this era.
Another selling point of this update has to be that the Web Filter blocked pages have now been customized. After updating to version 15.0, it will be possible to choose your logo and internet access policies to be displayed when someone tries to access a blocked web page.
Speaking of customization, administrators will also be able to tailor their NG Firewall email alerts. Because of this, it would become possible for the alerts to be flagged or filtered into the desired email client application.
If you happen to have any kids in the house and you’d like to have more control over the content they search on the Internet, then you might be needing this update. NG Firewall 15.0 comes with Kidzsearch filtering that makes sure that your kids don’t get any search results that are inappropriate for their age group. This feature works with Google, Bing, and other such popular search engines.
With this update, users will also be getting a new Threat Prevention App, which scans files, apps, web page associations, and web pages. What this app does is look at the Threat Risk level to decide to give something permission or not.
As NG Firewall receives another update, the application becomes more secure than ever with various new features and enhanced protection for SMB assets. However, there’s much more to this update, and you can get to know all about it from our official news source.
