EdgeWave introduces firewall with human intelligence

EdgeWave, Inc. said it has launchd a next generation firewall with human intelligence.

By integrating EdgeWave´s award-winning EPIC iGuardTM web content security service with the EdgeWave EPIC Next Generation FirewallTM, organizations of all sizes can now benefit from cyber defense that combines expert human analysis with machine intelligence to stay ahead of constantly evolving web-based attacks.

Mike Walls, managing director, security operations & analysis at EdgeWave, said, “The trend is definitely shifting to the point where we are seeing that the majority of cyber attacks are precisely targeted, extremely advanced, and constantly evolving. The operational experience and critical deductive reasoning of expert cyber security analysts is absolutely essential to identify and stop these changing threats and protect businesses from data breaches. Quite simply, it takes a human to stop a human.”
