Most traffic passing through a Firewall is not threat-based, but is instead applications and data.
Traditional firewalls focus on blocking simple threats and intrusions.
Business grade Firewalls have added Unified Threat Management (UTM) services such as anti-virus, anti-spyware, intrusion prevention, content filtering and even some anti-spam services to enhance to threat protection.
This gave rise to the Application Firewall which can manage and control data and applications that pass through the Firewall.
Threats (compromised, wasteful data) are blocked while Good (protected, productive data) passes through the Firewall.
An Application Firewall provides bandwidth management and control, application level access controls, data leakage control functionality, restrictions on the transfer of specific files and documents, and much more.
An Application Firewall allows custom access controls based upon user, application, schedule or IP subnet level. This allows an administrator the ability to create polices that address the full range of applications that are available for access and for the first time truly manage them.
