Firewall and UTM (Unified Threat Management)

You should protect your Internet connection with a firewall and UTM.

This effectively creates a ‘buffer zone’ between your IT network (the LAN side) and other, external networks (the WAN side).  In the simplest case, this means between your computer (or computers) and ‘the Internet’.  Within this buffer zone, incoming traffic can be analysed to find out whether or not it should be allowed onto your network.

A firewall and UTM is a smart, active firewall – it listens to traffic coming onto your network (WAN) and analysis if traffic should be to pass to your network (LAN).  As it inspects traffic, and Viruses or Malware are removed at source before they get to your network.  Any Spam destined to your Inbox gets stopped in its tracks and any IPS anomaly gets dropped. (Intrusion Prevention System  is a network security technology that examines network traffic flows to detect and prevent vulnerability exploits.)

Small and medium businesses are as much at risk from the targeted attacks of today as large enterprises.  Your business needs to protect it’s network effectively from external and internal threats, but that doesn’t mean you need a large security budget.

Enterprises face heavy financial damage due to entry of viruses, malware, worms, Trojans, spyware, and more through malicious websites.  Phishing, pharming and spyware may lead to theft of passwords, identity theft and loss of other confidential information.  Indiscriminate Internet surfing by internal users leaves enterprises vulnerable to legal liabilities, besides loss of productivity.  Unrestricted use of file-sharing applications like IM and P2P and multimedia downloads cause risk of data loss or leakage as well as bandwidth choking, draining the enterprise resources

IPS supports multiple protocols — HTTP, FTP, SMTP, POP3, IMAP, P2P and IM – and automatically detects, blocks or drops suspicious traffic.  The Intrusion Prevention system delivers application and network-layer protection with more than 3000+ inbuilt signatures which are automatically updated.

Gateway AntiSpam scans inbound and outbound mails over SMTP, POP3 and IMAP protocols and automatically detects, tags, quarantines and blocks spam.  The AntiSpam solution offers a spam quarantine repository, safeguarding against loss of business-critical messages.  Spam filtering supports white lists and black lists to control virus, Trojans, spyware, phishing and adware attempts.   This protects enterprises from image and attachment spam.   In the process, the AntiSpam solution enhances enterprise productivity and lowers storage and bandwidth costs.

The AntiVirus solution scans email and web traffic at the gateway to block malicious threats from entering the network.   It offers real-time protection against all spyware/malware, including viruses, worms, spyware, backdoors, Trojans, keyloggers and more.  Firewall VPN appliance scans incoming and outgoing HTTP, FTP, SMTP, SMTPS, POP3 & IMAP traffic, offering a highly dependable security solution.

SSL VPN is an application gateway that provides secure access to the applications using standard-based SSL encryption.  SSL VPN enables access only to specified applications rather than bridging the end-user’s machine with the corporate network while maintaining full application compatibility.  We discourage PPTP VPN connections, as the are not secure.
