Firewall and IPS for high capacity environments

Stonesoft Networks : 03 July, 2009  (New Product)
The StoneGate FW-5105 and IPS-6105 provide firewall protection and intrusion prevention for high capacity VPNs
Stonesoft, an innovative provider of integrated network security and business continuity solutions, introduces the new StoneGate FW-5105 firewall/VPN and StoneGate IPS-6105 intrusion prevention system appliances for most demanding high capacity environments. The new firewall offers up to 25 Gbps and the IPS appliance up to 10 Gbps performance.

"I am proud to introduce our new flagship appliances. The StoneGate FW-5105 and IPS-6105 have been designed to meet the demands of large organisations and MSSPs with unrivalled flexibility and cost-efficiency. For example, segmenting internal networks can now be separated into various trust zones. This is useful when trying to achieve compliance with Payment Card Industry security standard (PCI DSS) or any other security standard that requires good network security and proper auditing. The IPS appliance can now be placed anywhere on the internal network to prevent misuse and to provide virtual patching for critical business systems that for some reason cannot be updated to latest patch levels. I believe that these new products further improve our competitive advantage in this demanding area of network security", said Klaus Majewski, Vice President of Marketing at Stonesoft.

The new StoneGate FW-5105 provides an ideal solution for the increasingly expanding capacity needs of large enterprise networks and MSSPs (Managed Security Service Providers).

With four 10 Gbps interfaces, 18 gigabit interfaces and the capacity of over 25 Gbps, StoneGate FW-5105 is designed to meet the performance, redundancy and scalability requirements of large central sites, large VPN networks and data centres with thousands of users.

The appliance also serves well in demanding MSSP environments that require high performance with flexible customer management features.

The new StoneGate IPS-6105 intrusion prevention system offers excellent visibility and enterprise level inspection for demanding network environments. It has been designed to meet the needs of large organisations and MSSPs (Managed Security Service Providers).

IPS-6105 has four 10 Gbps bypass interfaces and eight gigabit bypass interfaces, so it allows the inspection of several network segments simultaneously.

The new serial clustering technology allows organisations to add new appliances and capacity to the security cluster. Extending investment lifetime and reuse of existing appliances bring significant cost savings and improved sustainability.

The new StoneGate IPS-6105 is also capable of inspecting encrypted Web traffic, thus eliminating the traditional blind spot in network protection. The new appliance protects both corporate network users and public Web services against attacks hidden inside the encrypted Web connection.

Both appliances can be managed with StoneGate Management Centre, providing enhanced ease of use and a comprehensive view over network security.
