Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) is one of the cornerstones of an effective cybersecurity strategy. Whereas basic firewalls and gateways use Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) to determine if network traffic packets should be allowed or blocked by simply examining the packet header and footer, more advanced security appliances using DPI also scrutinize the packet’s contents before deciding whether to allow the packet through.
Simply put, it’s the difference between examining only outside of a parcel before deciding it’s safe, and opening the parcel to see what’s inside to be truly certain it has no malicious contents. So how does DPI play a fundamental role to strengthening cybersecurity solutions like next-gen firewalls, threat intelligence platforms, malware protection and data loss prevention (DLP)?
