Network segment protection with StoneGate appliances

Stonesoft Networks : 24 June, 2009  (New Product)
Intrusion prevention and firewall appliances from Stonesoft offer configurable network protection including client-based attacks
Stonesoft introduces the new StoneGate FW-1060 and IPS-1060 for efficient proactive defence. Client-based attacks target employee browsers inside the network, trying to use them as stepping stones to attack the organisation's internal servers and information. The new StoneGate appliances help to prevent this and to separate workstations and servers in different network segments cost-efficiently.

There are two ways to create network segments and to protect them: either by separating them at the network level or at the data link level. The first approach requires changes in IP-addressing and routing, whereas the second one is more transparent to users. StoneGate Firewall FW-1060 separates networks at the network level and StoneGate Intrusion Prevention System IPS-1060 provides transparent protection that does not require any changes to the existing network topology.

The StoneGate FW-1060 FW/VPN appliance is a firewall solution designed for environments ranging from a few hundred to a few thousand users. With the capacity of up to 2 Gbit/s StoneGate FW/VPN appliance meets the security needs of medium traffic main sites or branch offices. With eight interfaces StoneGate FW-1060 offers also the possibility for efficient network segmentation.

StoneGate FW-1060 provides reliable data security as well as high availability features, which guarantee continuous information flow. Built-in firewall clustering, server load balancing and the possibility to utilise reserve ISP capacity on overloaded Internet connections guarantee continuous network connectivity.

StoneGate IPS-1060 Intrusion Prevention System is a proactive defence system designed to detect malicious packets within regular network traffic and to prevent intrusions. The solution detects and blocks offending traffic automatically before any damage occurs.

With the capacity of up to 600 Mbit/s StoneGate IPS-1060 is designed for branch offices, DMZ's, extranet or internal network segments. The appliance features both sensor and analyser functionalities, offering flexible protection for environments requiring ultimate ease of use.

The new StoneGate FW-1060 and IPS-1060 are also capable of inspecting encrypted web traffic (SSL inspection). This eliminates the traditional blind spot in network protection. The new appliance provides protection against attacks hidden inside the encrypted web connection for both corporate network users and public web services.

StoneGate FW/VPN and IPS appliances form a multi-dimensional 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 appliances offer comprehensive network security with easy deployment and unified management. This also guarantees an optimised solution for any geographically dispersed enterprise deployment.
