According to network security solutions firm Cyberoam, its new NG series is the 'fastest UTM appliance' for small office/home office and small and medium businesses in Malaysia.
The new UTM (unified threat management) solutions offer up to five times the throughput of the industry average for SOHO/SMBs, said Cyberoam Malaysia country manager, Amar Mehta.
"The SOHO/SMB networks in the Malaysian market are moving towards gigabit network infrastructure and high Internet speeds," said Mehta. "However, today, network security in the Malaysian market is not ready for these trends as no security vendor in Malaysia offers them security throughputs or gigabit ports required for such networks. This is resulting in security becoming a bottleneck for the SOHO/SMB networks in this region."
"Cyberoam NG Series will enable these SOHO/SMB networks in Malaysia to become future-ready by offering them network security that has evolved with the futuristic IT trends," he said.
Cyberoam senior vice president, product management, Abhilash Sonwane, said: "Today, SOHO/SMBs are unable to fully migrate to gigabit-ready network infrastructure because of lack of security solutions with gigabit performance in this segment. To cope, they either have to compromise on security or expand their security budgets to buy enterprise-level security. Cyberoam NG series for SOHO /SMB meets these needs by offering the best-in-class firewall and UTM throughputs along with Gigabit ports. In fact, the entry-level appliance in the NG series comes with Gigabit firewall throughput."
"The NG Series appliances come pre-loaded with CyberoamOS - the most intelligent and powerful Cyberoam firmware till date," said Sonwane. "The new firmware tightly integrates with the hardware for network and crypto acceleration to deliver high performance. The CyberoamOS also extracts full performance from a multi-core platform, along with offering minimum latency and improved processing speed with use of optimised Interrupt rates and FastPath technology."
"The NG series appliances come with a powerful hardware consisting of Gigahertz processors for nano second security processing along with Gigabit Ethernet ports and high port density. The unique design and robust components used in the NG series support high speed I/O [input/output] throughputs for better performance as well as protect against tough environment conditions, including power surge and fluctuations," he said.
