Control Network Traffic

The primary purpose of your Firebox is to control how network traffic flows in and of your network. To enable your Firebox to control this traffic, you configure settings to:

  • Create security policies on your Firebox that identify and authenticate users
  • Specify rules that allow or deny traffic through the Firebox, based on the traffic source or destination, and type of traffic
  • Use threat protection to protect your networks and users from attacks and harmful data
