Full internet gateway protection for small businesses.

ESoft : 30 July, 2007  (New Product)
InstaGate security gateway offers full firewall and unified threat management functionality at a cost aimed at smaller businesses.
eSoft has launched the InstaGate 404e Internet Security Gateway, a sub-$1,000 Firewall/UTM appliance designed to protect small organisations and networks from modern application-based threats.

Designed for networks of up to 25 users, the InstaGate 404e offers an organisation full protection from Internet malware, in addition to providing anti-spam, email filtering, web site filtering, IM and peer-to-peer (P2P) application control and secure IPSec VPN connectivity to remote sites and mobile workers. Unlike most Firewall/UTM appliances on the market, the InstaGate 404e is designed to protect organisations from the latest threats brought on by Web 2.0, AJAX and other advanced application-layer technologies. This is enabled through eSoft's proprietary Bi-modal scanning technology, which features both proxy and packet-based scanning, allowing features and capabilities that traditional UTM appliances do not have.

According to Scott Lukes, eSoft's Vice President of Marketing and Product Management, "Traditional Firewall/UTM devices tend to be packet-based, which means they do not have the capability to incorporate mail transfer agents, or MTAs, into their devices, nor can they fully proxy for mail protocols like SMTP/POP3 or web protocols such as HTTP/HTTPS. As a result, these devices are not able to offer full services such as anti-spam or web content filtering. Instead, they tend to 'front-end' for external cloud-based services, which can add latency and open up additional security holes in the network."

"eSoft has devised a very unique solution to a very serious problem," said Jeff Wilson, Principal Analyst, Network Security with Infonetics Research. "Modern Internet threats are so sophisticated that there is no one technology or architecture approach that can possibly address them all. Bi-modal scanning should prove well to eSoft customers as it gives them the best of both worlds, packet and proxy-based scanning in a single solution."
