Easy management of distributed network security

Stonesoft Networks : 21 April, 2009  (New Product)
StoneGate Firewall and Management Centre version 5.0 provides distributed network security management with improved visibility of security status
Stonesoft introduces the new StoneGate Management Centre 5.0 and StoneGate Firewall 5.0, offering new features and enhancements that make the administration of distributed organisations easier and more efficient than ever before.

StoneGate 5.0 is the first to offer SSL inspection for client- and server-side. This increases the organisation's end-to-end network security capabilities by protecting workstations, internal networks, hosts and servers against attacks hidden inside the SSL tunnel. This capability also further ensures regulatory compliance and data loss prevention.

With the advanced reporting and auditing tools, IT management can provide a clear overview of the organisation's security status and effectiveness of security investments to the top management. They also reduce the time required for regulatory compliance audits, providing excellent material for internal and external auditors.

The new third-party monitoring feature of StoneGate Management Centre 5.0 collects all security-related information for easy access and reporting. This extends the lifetime of existing network infrastructure and gives the administrator a comprehensive overview of the security status. This helps to prevent production downtime through proactive detection of security incidents before they escalate.

StoneGate Management Centre 5.0 offers unequalled tools for managing large distributed environments with minimum effort. Several automated tasks and efficient use of templates and reusable objects make the administration processes more efficient and bring significant cost savings.

The new Web Portal provides administrators a read only access to policies, logs and reports, offering a light-weight GUI access even with a mobile device, without the need to install any additional client software. This allows the administrator to monitor the security systems efficiently at any time and from any location.

'IT professionals participating in Nemertes research increasingly stress the importance of a quick time-to-value for any new security or management tool,' said John Burke, principal research analyst with Nemertes Research. 'They want things that begin working in hours or days instead of weeks or months. They also bemoan the continuing management tool sprawl that forces them to look in twelve places to manage eleven things. Short on staff and short on time, they need tools that will let them look less and see more, simplify as well as empower.'

Klaus Majewski, vice president of marketing at Stonesoft concludes, "We at Stonesoft take great pride in working closely together with our customers and listening to their feedback. The most recent features and enhancements in StoneGate 5.0 are designed to make the lives of our customers easier and help them to successfully deal with the current economical challenges. The new StoneGate 5.0 features are most remarkable in the history of our offering, serving our target market perfectly and bringing out the key strengths of our products: cost efficiency, flexibility and unparalleled usability."
