Huawei earns ‘Recommended’ rating from NSS Labs


Huawei announced Wednesday that it has earned NSS Labs’ “recommended” rating in the latest Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) Group Test.

A “recommended” rating from NSS is awarded based on outstanding performance that confirms Huawei firewalls now rank among the industry’s leaders.

NSS Labs is recognised worldwide for its independence and advanced testing methods.

In this NGFW group test, which included 13 products from industry-leading vendors, NSS Labs used its state-of-the-art test methodology V6.0 and introduced the Cyber Advanced Warning System (CAWS) test on live networks to evaluate the capability of products to defend against the latest threats.

Huawei USG6650 NGFW passed 100% of the tests in “Firewall Policy Enforcement”, “Application Control”, “Resistance to Evasion”, and “Stability and Reliability”. In “Security Effectiveness”, Huawei NGFW demonstrated a 99.95% CAWS threat detection rate and 98.1% overall security effectiveness.

Huawei’s firewall also provides great cost performance, having a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) per Mbps than most of those from other participating vendors.

“The performance of Huawei’s next-generation firewall is impressive,” said Vikram Phatak, CEO of NSS Labs in a statement. “The security, performance, and stability of the product have reached industry-leading levels. The product has excellent security value and is recommended by NSS.”

USG series NGFWs are Huawei’s flagship security products that provide comprehensive, efficient, and integrated security featuring ease of use and management, refined control, and service acceleration.

Mr. Liu Lizhu, Vice President of Huawei Switch and Enterprise Communications product line, said, “Earning the ‘recommended’ rating from NSS Labs proves that Huawei’s NGFW is one of the best products in the industry. Strictly evaluated by the independent third party, Huawei NGFW products instill confidence. This is the result of more than ten years of unremitting effort by Huawei in the security field. We will continue our efforts to bring better products and greater value to our customers.”
