Stonesoft Corporation, provider of integrated network security and business continuity solutions, has added new features to its StoneGate Secure Connectivity Solution. The new features include innovative disaster recovery, advanced usability features and easy VPN setup.
StoneGate Management Center 4.0 stands out through its user-friendly navigation, advanced log filters and search tools. New usability features allow administrators to easily customise the GUI for their needs. With the sophisticated search tools, finding relevant log entries from the huge number of log files and managing the security elements within complicated security rules in large environments is fast and easy.
Stonesoft has introduced a backup management system concept for the Secure Connectivity Solution which secures the information flow and business continuity, even following a major disaster, by providing features such as StoneGate Secure Mobility solution for remote location working.
Situation awareness is the key to keeping large business environments secure, connected and operational around the clock, says Klaus Majewski, Product Marketing Manager at Stonesoft. StoneGate Secure Connectivity Solution provides administrators with real-time information that is easy to understand and fast tools to prevent and block any disruptions from the business environment. This results in considerably lower total cost of ownership even in the most demanding environments.
StoneGate Secure Connectivity Solution offers easy VPN setup to secure connections between offices with several connectivity options. For example, having several different types of Internet connections such as ADSL, cable, MPLS and/or satellite does not require any action or co-operation with the Internet Service Providers (ISP), which results in improved cost-efficiency. StoneGate combines all different connection types to one virtual, resilient connection that works without interruption.
The StoneGate Secure Connectivity Solution comprises a Firewall and an Intrusion Prevention System (IPS). The StoneGate IPS defends the network proactively by detecting malicious packets within regular network traffic and blocking them before any damage occurs. Implementing StoneGate IPS expands the defence further within networks enabling comprehensive, multi-dimensional network security. StoneGate Firewall and IPS work together to provide intelligent defence throughout the enterprise network.
StoneGate SMC 4.0 and IPS 4.0 are currently shipping to customers.
