Stonesoft Partners With Internet Service Provider

Stonesoft Networks : 03 November, 2011  (Company News)
Partnership to provide additional protection to ISP customers from the increasing threat of Advanced Evasion Techniques
Stonesoft Partners With Internet Service Provider
Internet Service Provider, Internet Central, has signed a reseller partnership with network security vendor Stonesoft to provide comprehensive protection for its customers against web-based threats and Advanced Evasion Techniques (AETs).

Internet Central, one of the UK’s first ISPs, helps connect companies to the internet each day and managing director, Maitland Hyslop, recently identified a requirement to also provide them with a security solution to help protect against the advanced threats targeting companies via the Internet.

After an extensive selection process Internet Central selected Stonesoft’s StoneGate Firewall appliance because of its plug-and-play features, easy-to-use centralised management console and antievasion capabilities.

Internet Central required a product which could be deployed across their company network, but be centrally controlled from their offices, could guarantee comprehensive protection against today’s new and evolving threats, specifically Advanced Evasion Techniques, and the StoneGate product came out way ahead of all its competitors.

“We felt AETs were something we needed to make our customers aware of and apart from Stonesoft no other vendor seemed to be addressing the problem. Stonesoft has taken a technical and commercial march ahead of its competitors and for that we believe their solution is the best on the market. I fully agree that AETs pose a serious risk to network security and the fact that Stonesoft’s products have antievasion capabilities makes them stand out from the crowd. We believe antievasion solutions are very important at helping conquer the threats faced by us and our clients today,” said Maitland Hyslop, managing director, Internet Central.

The StoneGate Firewall solution combines reliable data security with high availability features that guarantee continuous information flow. Built-in firewall clustering, server load balancing and the possibility to utilise reserve capacity on overloaded Internet connections ensure continuous network connectivity for today’s complex, critical networks.

Ash Patel, country manager for UK & Ireland at Stonesoft, said: “This is an exciting partnership for Stonesoft and we are particularly happy that Internet Central understands the severity of the threat posed by AETs. We are currently building anti-evasion capabilities into all of our products as we believe that it is imperative in ensuring comprehensive protection for our customers.”
