Encrypted web traffic inspection on StoneGate firewall

Stonesoft Networks : 26 May, 2009  (New Product)
Next generation StoneGate FW-1030 firewall from Stonesoft available for IT perimeter protection of smaller businesses and remote offices
Stonesoft introduces the new StoneGate FW-1030 appliance with next generation firewall capabilities.

The StoneGate FW-1030 FW/VPN appliance is a next generation firewall solution designed for the needs of small enterprises and remote offices with tens to hundreds of users.

FW-1030 can be used for perimeter protection and to segment internal networks - for example to prevent computer worms from spreading and contaminating the internal network. The solution provides not only reliable data security but also high-availability features, which guarantee continuous information flow.

"We are proud to introduce the new FW-1030, which has been especially designed to meet the needs of small enterprises and remote offices. Remote locations often suffer from being in-between the different demands of small and large offices. In practice, this means that appliances and services designed for small offices are not sufficient for their demands, but on the other hand they do not want to pay for full-scale solutions designed for large offices. Our new StoneGate FW-1030 fills this gap, offering a complete solution with a set of new generation features, solid-state disk technology and low power consumption", said Kim Fagernäs, vice president of sales at Stonesoft.

FW-1030 introduces a new generation of previously unseen features such as efficient traffic inspection and SSL decryption. These features allow remote offices to use Internet services directly and safely without rerouting the traffic through corporate security centres.

Many Internet services and web sites use encryption to protect their customer data. However, encryption prevents legacy firewalls from seeing into the traffic and preventing embedded attacks. It is very difficult for a regular user to see whether a website is hacked and might contain attacks. StoneGate network security solutions can eliminate the problem. StoneGate FW-1030 safely opens the web traffic encryption and automatically stops hidden attacks. After the traffic has been cleaned, it is encrypted again and sent to the user.

FW-1030 guarantees continuous network connectivity through built-in firewall clustering, server load balancing and the possibility to utilise reserve ISP capacity on overloaded Internet connections. The new solid-state disk technology replaces hard disks, which provides a more reliable and durable storage system with low power usage.

StoneGate FW-1030 includes the standard UTM features deep inspection and IPS fingerprinting for HTTP, IMAP4, POP3, SIP and SMTP. Anti-virus engine for web and email traffic is available as an option with an additional license.

Combined with any StoneGate Intrusion Prevention System, FW-1030 forms a multidimensional defence system, where several security layers communicate seamlessly together. This field-proven technology expands comprehensive protection to the whole network and raises network protection to a previously unseen level.

StoneGate FW-1030 and all other StoneGate appliances offer comprehensive network security with easy configuration and unified management. This ensures increased security and performance as well as significantly lower administration costs for any geographically dispersed enterprise deployment.

The new third-party event management feature provides log visibility throughout the organisation's security environment.
