Securing the information flow of distributed organisations

Reading, UK, 14 May, 2007 – Stonesoft Corporation, an innovative provider of integrated network security and business continuity solutions, introduces a secure connectivity solution for the demands of distributed organisations with remote offices. The solution comprises of the StoneGate™ FW-300 firewall and IPS-400 intrusion prevention system, providing uncompromised security with ultimate ease of management and use.

“The network security of enterprises is only as strong as their weakest link. Remote offices usually do not have their own recourses for on-site maintenance or complicated administration, yet they cannot afford service downtime or security threats any more than the headquarters can. There is a clear demand for an all-in-one solution that is easy to use, yet still provides full-scale network security”, says Klaus Majewski, product marketing manager at Stonesoft.

The StoneGate secure connectivity solution for remote offices meets the needs of distributed organisations, providing service continuity and enterprise class security at a competitive cost-performance and cost-functionality ratio.

The StoneGate FW-300 protects data security at the perimeter or at the network segments and the IPS-400 defends the network proactively by detecting malicious packets within regular network traffic and blocking them before any damage occurs. Implementing the IPS (intrusion prevention system) expands the defence further within networks, enabling comprehensive, multi-dimensional network security.

The Firewall and IPS work together to provide intelligent defence throughout the enterprise network. Appliance clustering and robust connection of the solution guarantee continuous protection and eliminate the need for maintenance downtime.

Key benefits of StoneGate secure connectivity solution for remote offices:
• Reliable and cost-efficient connections between offices using VPN over multiple ISPs (internet service providers) simultaneously. The patented Multi-Link™ technology provides the fastest connection available and offers on-demand reserve capacity to overloaded Internet connections.
• Centralised management of appliances and remote offices with StoneGate Management Center (SMC). The administrator has constant visibility and knowledge about the state of the whole network, which significantly raises the level of network security. Remote upgrades and updates ensure easy maintenance with low cost of operation.
• Guaranteed business continuity and protected investment with flexibility and scalability. The StoneGate secure connectivity solution for remote offices allows for easy deployment of remote office security and is easily integrated with existing security engines.

The new StoneGateTM FW-300 and StoneGateTM IPS-400 appliances are available for shipping in May 2007.
