All-in-One Network Security - Redefined
ProSecure Unified Threat Management (UTM) firewalls combine performance with comprehensive security coverage. Patented Stream Scanning technology enables the ProSecure UTM to utilize virus and malware threat databases from ProSecure and Sophos that are over one million signatures in size - up to 400x more comprehensive than legacy all-in-one platforms at a speed that is up to 5x faster than conventional methods. This architecture, combined with best-of-breed hybrid in-the-cloud web filter and anti-spam technologies along with proven firewall, IPS, and VPN functionality, form the ideal growing business gateway security solution.
Revolutionary Stream Scanning Platform
Given the high performance requirements of scanning latency sensitive web traffic, incorporating enterprise-grade security software technologies onto traditional all-in-one platforms has been a very difficult task. Traditional batch-based scanning methods introduce large amounts of latency into network traffic and can slow web browsing to a crawl. All-in-one solutions in the past have tried to overcome this by minimizing the malware signature set, scanning only a select few file types, or by avoiding web scanning altogether. This exposes an entire vector of the network to malware-based attacks. The ProSecure UTM features patented Stream Scanning technology which analyses data streams as they enter the network. This significantly reduces latency and allows the use of an extensive malware signature library for scanning - thus offering an unprecedented combination of speed and coverage in an all-in-one solution.
Simple Setup, Ease of Management
The ProSecure UTM will easily replace any existing firewall or router. A simple 10-step setup wizard guides you through installation and the UTM will be up and running in minutes.
Administration is performed through an intuitive web-based interface. Set granular policies and alerts, check summary statistics and graphical reports, drill down to IP address-level data, and integrate log data with standard network management tools using SNMP. Malware and IPS signature, software, and firmware updates are all handled by the UTM - online and automatically.
For many administrators and IT personnel one of their biggest nightmares is the management of individual licenses or "seats." Buying additional licenses when computers and personnel are added to the network is time-consuming and costly. The ProSecure UTM offers web and Email protection subscriptions with no "per-user" licensing.
The ProSecure UTM has two modular slots that allow for optional interface cards to be added tailoring the appliance for specific installation requirements. A VDSL/ADSL2+ Modem Module, available in both Annex A and Annex B versions, furnishes direct, always-on Internet connectivity. VDSL capability provides Internet connection speeds up to three times faster than traditional ADSL2+ DSL networks while providing backwards compatibility with ADSL2+. In conjunction with two onboard RJ45 WAN ports for redundancy and failover, the VDSL/ADSL 2+ Modem Module, if installed, can be employed either as the primary WAN connection or as a third WAN port in a redundant/load balancing scenario. A Wireless-N Module provides access point capability to connect Wireless-N clients at both 2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz frequencies at up to 15x the speed and 10x the coverage of legacy 802.11g networks. Backwards compatibility with 802.11a, 802.11g, and 802.11b network devices allows for flexible deployment scenarios.
