Combined firewall and VPN appliance for mobile workers.

Stonesoft Networks : 30 October, 2007  (New Product)
Remote security management enabled with mobile firewall and VPN router to allow safe mobile operation at any distance.
Stonesoft extends its product offering in secure mobility with the new, centrally managed StoneGate FW-100 appliance. The appliance allows smooth access to business critical information even from the smallest and most remote offices.

StoneGate FW-100 Firewall/VPN dissolves physical distance and overcomes organisational boundaries, allowing unlimited access to corporate data with uncompromised security. Offices and units of geographically and administratively dispersed organisations benefit from increased possibilities and freedom to share information without security risks.

StoneGate FW-100 Firewall/VPN appliance provides the tools for enabling secure access to network resources and applications. Providing site-to-site VPN connectivity over ADSL, cable modem or other connectivity media, the appliance allows connecting several small remote sites with central network resources flexibly and securely. With the WLAN connectivity, employees benefit from true mobility. Business-critical information can be easily accessed even from the most remote sales office, with no security risks.

Centrally managed, the appliance offers ultimate ease of administration and enhanced usability without compromising security. With the unified management system, StoneGate FW-100 allows a holistic view and control on the security status of remote sites. Administrators can manage hundreds of appliances and stop network abuse remotely, if needed.

"Until now, increasing flexibility has often required organisations to compromise security, and vice versa: improving security has resulted in slowness or incapability to adapt to changes in business environment. StoneGate FW-100 offers businesses true mobility, dissolving the physical distance between remote sites and the headquarters. Everybody profits - the business users, the administrators, and the business", illustrates Katriina Maanoja, Product Marketing Manager of Stonesoft.

StoneGate FW-100 further exploits the Stonesoft concept of layered security. The product allows segmenting the corporate network into dedicated security zones for corporate access.

With StoneGate FW-100, organisations can divide the networks of their remote offices into two zones: a guest network and a corporate network. Thus, users can have direct access to the Internet simultaneously with corporate access - without compromising corporate security.

StoneGate FW-100 will be available for shipping in December 2007.
