Contextually Aware Transformable Security Engine

Stonesoft Networks : 29 February, 2012  (New Product)
Stonesoft releases its security engine for enterprise IT security protection with adaptability and scalability
Contextually Aware Transformable Security Engine
Stonesoft has introduced the industry’s first future-proof transformable security engine. The Stonesoft Security Engine is capable of delivering seven enterprise-class product configuration modes to provide contextually-aware, next generation security capabilities. This challenges today’s cumbersome and silo-ed network security product approach by setting new standards for adaptability, scalability, agility and return on investment (ROI).

The Stonesoft Security Engine is a first-of-its-kind security solution that, depending on the user’s preference, can be configured to act as a traditional and/or next generation firewall (NGFW), traditional and/or next generation intrusion prevention systems (IPS/NGIPS), layer-2 firewall, VPN or UTM product. The solution, which can act as one or several of these products simultaneously, is delivered through one highly integrated technology platform and managed through a single management centre.

In any configuration mode, the Stonesoft Security Engine delivers full-blown security capabilities, including best of breed data inspection, anti-evasion capabilities, and full situational and contextual awareness, to protect against even the most advanced threats. It is available as a physical appliance, software or virtual solution and can be changed without the need for buying another product.

The Stonesoft Security Engine revolutionises the delivery of network security by allowing customers to choose the platform and capacity required, and then self-configure the product mode and security capabilities based on their current needs. Most importantly, it allows users to reconfigure and reuse the product as network and business demands evolve. For example, a user can change the product role from NGFW to NGIPS or upgrade the security grade at a moment’s notice, for free. This enables organisations to adapt to changes with an unprecedented level of speed and agility.

The Stonesoft Security Engine also eliminates the need to physically upgrade technologies and security products over time. It automatically receives new security features and performance improvements as they evolve to ultimately provide future-proof, next generation security with a single contract and investment. As a result, customers are no longer held hostage to the buy-upgrade-replace cycle and can drastically increase ROI.

“We did not want to develop another Swiss-Army-Knife type of product. Most of the industry’s recent attempts to provide loosely integrated multi-functional security have resulted in compromised security capabilities. In contrast, the Stonesoft Security Engine delivers any desired grade of security from mass to military grade and everything in between. This allows organisations to quickly adapt to changing threats and business demands. It’s a level of agility and security that has never been seen before,” said Ash Patel, country manager for UK and Ireland at Stonesoft

The introduction of the Stonesoft Security Engine marks the end of disposable, finite security products and replaces them with a sustainable model. Where silo-ed or loosely integrated multi-functional security devices typically sacrifice performance for security or vice versa, the Stonesoft Security Engine features intelligent and simultaneous security processes built upon a high level of technological integration. This innovative technology makes the Stonesoft Security Engine’s performance comparable to the highest-performing devices in the industry.

“This has been Stonesoft’s long term vision – to stop viewing security as a fixed product or definition. Instead, we need solutions that have the adaptability and scalability of a service. We have achieved this goal by creating something that can evolve, adapt, scale up and transform in time. These requirements mirror the feedback we have received from customers for the last decade,” said Ilkka Hiidenheimo, CEO and founder of Stonesoft.
