Firewall is the network security system which controls the network traffic incoming and outgoing according to the set of defined rules. Firewall acts as a middle layer between trusted and untrusted networks and filters the network traffic based on the predefined firewall policy. Enterprise firewalls are used for a group of devices within an enterprise. All the devices in this group would only have access to specific networks according to the organizational policies.
New policies adopted by enterprises such as bring your own device (BYOD), cloud computing are exposing the networks of an enterprise to the outside world. This has resulted in increased threats to enterprise security. Employees working on the field must carry devices with them and connect to outside networks, further increasing the security threats. Organizations are evaluating their network security in order to improve their network security structure. Enterprise firewall is the choice of many companies to overcome the security concerns driving the enterprise firewall market globally.
Government regulations and compliance requirements forced the enterprises to opt for enterprise firewalls. This is a key driving factor for enterprise firewall market growth.

NGFW is best suitable for large enterprises with complex networking infrastructure. However, lack of awareness about the network security could pose a challenge for the growth of enterprise firewall market.
