Wick Hill now shipping new WebTrends Firewall Appliance Analyzer, a low-cost firewall reporting solution for the SOHO market

Guildford, Surrey: July 20th, 2001 - Wick Hill, a specialist in ebusiness infrastructure, is now shipping the WebTrends Firewall Appliance Analyzer, the new low cost firewall reporting solution from WebTrends. Aimed at the SOHO market, the Firewall Appliance Analyzer supports firewall appliances such as SonicWALL, NetScreen, 3Com and WatchGuard.*

The product, which is based on WebTrends already successful Firewall Suite for the high end market, offers facilities for SMEs which are normally reserved for solutions used on large enterprise firewalls.

WebTrends Firewall Appliance Analyzer extracts information from the firewall appliance log, which records all data about firewall traffic and security-related events, presenting it in easy-to-understand reports and graphs.

This information provides valuable technical and management insight into firewall activity, including any critical security events. It allows SMEs to understand what is happening on their firewall and to proactively manage it.

Other benefits include the ability to cut costs and distribute bandwidth more efficiently with the help of reports detailing bandwidth usage. Productivity losses can also be reduced through reports detailing what internal users are doing on the Internet.

Over 90 reports are available, with automated scheduling. A streamlined FastTrends( database allows for rapid subsequent analysis, and a built-in Syslog server means the firewall server data can be imported directly to the WebTrends Firewall Appliance Analyzer. As the product is based on WebTrends' Firewall Suite, it is easily upgradeable to cater for a more powerful firewall if a business grows.

Price and Availability

WebTrends Firewall Appliance Analyzer is available now from Wick Hill accredited resellers priced at GBP420.
