Abstract [en]

As there is more and more threats on the internet the need for security is more crucial than ever for the companies to look into their solutions to protect their information. To be able to see how an attack works, we discus and show how an attack is progressing in this thesis we compare the difference between traditional and Next Generation firewalls. We also compare three different vendors to compare different functions and security performance.

By using Systemair AB as testing ground and having their network as a template we will compare the models in a real environment and finally make the changes to get a more effective network at their site with a new Next Generation firewall at their center.

It will also contain a description about Cisco’s Next generation firewall ASA with FirePOWER, and some of the installation process to get it to work. This is Cisco’s new firewall that they have created with the help of Sourcefire.
