18 pagesDate: January 4, 2024


Cybersecurity is a critical concern in the digital age, demanding innovative approaches to safeguard sensitive
information and systems. This paper conducts a thorough examination of next-generation firewalls that
integrate artificial intelligence technologies, presenting a comparative analysis of their efficacy. As
traditional firewalls fall short in addressing modern cyber threats, the incorporation of AI provides a promising
avenue for enhanced threat detection and mitigation. The literature review explores existing research on AI-based
firewalls, delving into methodologies and technologies proposed by leading experts in the field. A compilation of
20-25 references from reputable sources, including, forms the basis for this comparative study.
The selected references provide insights into various AI-based firewall architectures, algorithms, and performance
metrics, laying the groundwork for a comprehensive analysis. The methodology section outlines the systematic
approach employed to compare different AI-based firewall methods. Leveraging machine learning and deep
learning approaches, the study assesses key performance metrics such as detection accuracy, false positive rates,
and computational efficiency. The goal is to provide a nuanced understanding of the strengths and weaknesses
inherent in each approach, facilitating an informed evaluation. The comparative analysis section employs
graphical representations to elucidate the findings, offering a visual overview of the performance disparities
among selected AI-based firewall methods. Pros and cons are meticulously examined, providing stakeholders
with valuable insights for decision-making in cybersecurity strategy. This research aims to contribute to the
ongoing discourse on AI-based firewalls, addressing current limitations and paving the way for advancements that
fortify the cybersecurity landscape.
