Remote VPN access enabled with FW-100 appliance.

Stonesoft Networks : 16 April, 2008  (New Product)
VPN firewall enables secure remote office location connection to central system with centralised administration.
Stonesoft will extend its offerings 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 appliance provides the tools for enabling secure access to network resources and applications regardless of geographic location. The appliance provides site-to-site VPN connectivity over ADSL, cable modem or other connectivity media, 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.

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

With the centralised 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. The appliance offers ultimate ease of administration and enhanced usability without compromising security.

"Until now, increasing flexibility has often required organizations 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," said Mark Boltz, senior solutions architect of Stonesoft.

StoneGate FW-100 further demonstrates Stonesoft's approach to layered security. The product allows segmenting the corporate network into dedicated security zones for corporate access. With StoneGate FW-100, organizations 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 the US in April 2008.
