Next Generation UTM Appliance, Protector, goes Light

Technology Uncategorized

Leading IT security firm SecPoint’s Protector is taking Unified Threat Management appliances to the next level by offering a new ‘Light’ version at an affordable price for SMEs.

The sister unit to the larger-scale parent Protector UTM Firewall provides the same award-winning features like Firewall, Intrusion Detection & Prevention, Application Control, Web Filtering, Anti Spam, Anti Virus, Anti Phishing and Content Filter to small and medium-sized businesses.

The entry-level system, for 1-4 users, is based on a SFF Small Form Factor device that allows IT managers to secure their entire network with a built-in Application Control, Web Filter, Content Filter and Web Proxy giving the administrator the ability to control all the content on their network.

Protector Light can be placed in front of a network and will ensure protection against all external attacks from the Internet. It can also be placed locally, in front of the switch on an internal network, to block and record local attackers. It provides complete logs to show who was trying to access the network.

Network users can also be prevented from visiting auction sites, logging into their private emails, browsing through social media such as Facebook or accessing video sites such as YouTube during business hours. P2P traffic can also be blocked, so users can’t download illegal software.

Additional features include Data Leak Prevention and a Full Mail Archive (Incoming & Outgoing Mail Backup) for companies and organisations with five to 2,000 mailboxes, on a 250GB hard drive, and Fast Live Chat Support.

Key features include:

  • Award-winning Firewall to block unauthorised incoming and outgoing connections;
  • Intrusion Prevention via SecPoint’s own extensive database of signatures – the largest in the world – to stop hackers who may have succeeded in getting through the firewall;
  • Application Control prevent users opening Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Skype, etc. on their computers;
  • An Anti-Spyware module, which can also detect, identify and block outgoing infections;
  • Blocking outgoing attacks that may have originated via viruses from a DVD or an infected local laptop;
  • Automatic Software and Firmware updates.

Eliminating Complexity

Ensuring IT security for any organisation is a complex task and IT security firms often make this more complex by hiding the actual prices of various modules from customers to make more by from them by insisting they purchase additional features modules, firmware updates and support packages, etc. On many occasions, clients find themselves stuck in a situation where they can’t say ‘No’ because they are tied in to their initial investment in their IT security hardware.

Removing Complexity

With SecPoint’s ‘No Hidden Cost Policy’ customers get the convenience of obtaining the solution they need at no extra cost, whatsoever. Products come with many features but clients don’t need to pay separately for them. The concept is simple. Other companies always hide prices.
