Key Findings and Conclusion

• Best of the best: earned the "recommended" rating in the latest

NGFW Group test.
• The total cost of ownership (TCO) per Mbps is as low as USD 7
based on the list price or USD 4 based on the street price.
• 99.95% CAWS threat detection rate and 98.1% overall security
Product Analysis effectiveness.
Report (Brief)

SS Labs released a test report on Huawei USG6000 series. The report covers the
product analysis on Huawei USG6650. The test evaluated the firewall from such
February 2016 aspects as security effectiveness, performance, stability and reliability, management
and configuration, and TCO. NSS Labs examined many indicators of the tested equipment and
gave detailed and objective performance evaluations.
Huawei USG6650 belongs to the USG6000 series, which are next-generation firewalls
that Huawei launches for small and medium-sized businesses, branch offices, chain
Product Category stores, and large- and medium-sized enterprises.

Comparative Product Test Report

Firewall Huawei USG6650 passed the stability and reliability, application control, firewall policy
enforcement, identity awareness, malware intrusion detection, "real-world" performance
tests and was awarded the highest evaluation rating "recommended". It also provides the
Tested Vendor great cost performance, with Huawei firewalls having a lower total cost of ownership (TCO)
per Mbps than most of those from other participating vendors.

Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)

NSS Labs calculated the TCO per Mbps based on the results of TCO tests in the past three
years and the results of the throughput and security effectiveness tests to compare the
cost effectiveness of products against the same criteria.
Huawei USG6000 provides competitive performance and cost-effectiveness. The TCO per Mbps
is only USD 7 based on the list price or USD 4 based on the street price. The formula is as follows:
USG6000 series
Security Effectiveness = Firewall (Firewall Policy Enforcement * Application Control * User/Group
ID) * IPS (Exploit Block Rate* Evasions) * Stability and Reliability
TCO per Protected Mbps = TCO/(Security Effectiveness * NSS-Tested Throughput)

Test Methodology
NSS Labs Next Generation Firewall (NGFW), Test Methodology v6.0. The V6.0 version has been added the CAWS test which is a simulation
test of the defense for attacks in the actual network. The test result can reflect the attack defense capability of the device more truly.
