Re: Meaning of Next Gen
Agreed, we can't rely on "generational" technology.  New threats occur on almost a daily basis and we need defenses that are agile and dynamic enough to meet those threats.  Sadly, even these "next-gen" firewalls are already outdated.

Re: Meaning of Next Gen
It's all in the name! I really do wish vendors would stop calling them firewalls, but I get that enterprises and their execs are familiar with the term, so it's good for the sales side. =) 

It is really interesting just how far the firewall/segmentation gateway has come, though.

Meaning of Next Gen
Changes are occurring so quickly in technology in general and security in particlarthat the the term "next gen" is so overused that is practically meaningless! In terms of descriptive accuracy, I like Forrester's John Kindervag's term --"segmentation gateways" but it's not nearly as intriguing as the term "next gen."
