Understanding Application Gateway In Network Security

In my previous article, I have talked about some of the network firewall types that we have in network security. Now, I want to talk about some of the facts that you need to know about application gateway in network security. Follow me as we look at that in this article.


An application gateway also known as an application proxy or application-level proxy is an application that runs on firewalls. This type of firewall derives its name from the fact that it works by negotiating with various type of applications to allow their traffic to pass through the firewall. 


In network terminology, negotiation is a term used to refer to the process of authentication and verification. In other words, rather than looking at the protocol and the port the packet is using, an application gateway will examine the packet application and the server-side application to which it is trying to connect.
