Modular Network Security Appliance Components

Stonesoft Networks : 01 September, 2010  (New Product)
Stonesoft has taken a modular approach to network protection with the StoneGate range of network security appliances being offered as modular hardware to meet requirements for ease of scalability as company networks expand
Modular Network Security Appliance Components
Stonesoft announced a selection of new modular appliances to the StoneGate product suite that enable clients to add or modify network interfaces to meet network connectivity needs. Rather than replace security appliances as network traffic grows, organisations can simply add connectivity through the new modular hardware components for StoneGate Firewall/VPN 5.2 and StoneGate IPS 5.2.

This is the latest development in Stonesoft's mission to increase the agility of today's networks. Many of today's corporate and public sector organisations are struggling to meet the increased network security demands of today's fast-changing, post-recession climate. As a result, there is an acute need for flexible, cost-effective network technologies that support the changing pace of business.

Stonesoft's new modular appliances include the StoneGate FW-1301, FW-3201 and FW-3205 firewall/VPN appliances and the IPS-3201, IPS-3205, SSL-3201 intrusion prevention system appliances. These devices allow organisations to easily add or modify network interfaces that connect the firewall or IPS to surrounding network infrastructure. Within minutes, a mid-sized enterprise can protect and inspect more network segments by simply adding network interface modules to their device(s).

In addition to flexibility, StoneGate 5.2 will deliver substantial cost savings to customers by extending the appliance life cycle. Instead of buying a new device and/or management centre as network traffic and security demands increase, organisations can simply add the appropriate hardware components. Additionally, they can reuse certain modules in other StoneGate appliances, thus further extending the return on investment and flexibility of the StoneGate network security solution.

"Today's businesses must be more agile than ever before. Our new modular appliances ensure that organisations have access to network security that grows and contracts with their network demands", said Antti Kuvaja, director of product management at Stonesoft Corporation.
