Intrusion prevention module secures network access transparently.

Stonesoft Networks : 06 August, 2007  (New Product)
Corporate network defence improved with inclusion of minimal set-up intrusion prevention module in StoneGate firewalls.
Stonesoft extends the StoneGate Secure Connectivity Solution with a new module. The module unifies the StoneGate IPS (Intrusion Prevention System) and Firewall functionalities, providing attack prevention and transparent firewall access control without the need to change existing network configurations.

StoneGate IPS detects and stops network traffic abuse and stops attacks before any damage occurs. IPS transparent access control is an additional module to the StoneGate IPS product providing unconditional security to existing networks. The new module further extends traditional IPS inspection functionality by allowing company networks to be segmented in different security zones providing full access control for all Ethernet traffic. Contrary to traditional firewalls, the segmentation of the network by implementing access control does not require any changes to existing network configurations.

"StoneGate IPS transparent access control provides multi-layered defense to existing networks easily, without any further configuration to network settings or elements. Until now, adding further network security has meant considerable changes to existing network infrastructure, which requires a lot of extra work and costs," says Mark Boltz, Senior Solutions Architect at Stonesoft. "We are proud to offer organizations a solution that allows them to introduce uncompromised security to even the most complicated networks."

The new module is ideally suited in situations where a company needs to split its networks into smaller security domains without changing the routing. It is an optimal way to increase security in cases where access needs to be restricted but companies cannot or do not want to change their network topology, such as access to financial department, R&D or Industrial networks.

StoneGate Secure Connectivity Solutions include Firewall, VPN, Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), and SSL VPN. StoneGate IPS defends the network proactively by detecting malicious packets within regular network traffic and blocking them before any damage occurs. Implementing StoneGate IPS expands the defense further within networks enabling comprehensive, multi-dimensional network security. StoneGate Firewall and IPS work together to provide intelligent defense throughout the enterprise network. StoneGate SSL VPN provides enhanced security for mobile and remote use.

The new module is available now with StoneGate IPS version 4.1.
