Infotech Lead India: Netgear has priced ProSecure UTM25S Unified Threat Management Firewall at Rs 68,000 for SMBs.
The ProSecure UTM25S provides two modular slots that fit optional interface cards, enabling IT administrators to customize the firewall to their specific connectivity requirements.
The UTM25S integrates with Netgear ReadyNAS network-attached storage systems, giving businesses almost unlimited activity log and quarantine capacity for forensic, regulatory and legal requirements.
Moreover, the UTM25S offers Internet security as well as high-speed Internet access through a choice of WAN connections- built-in Ethernet ports, an optional VDSL modem module, or a qualified 3G USB dongle.
It also offers a wireless-N access point module. Targeted at small and medium businesses and remote/branch offices looking to make the move from a standard firewall to a UTM application firewall solution, the ProSecure UTM25S significantly extends the security of a network without the normally associated vendor complexity or costs.
“Because of the always increasing amount of latency-sensitive Web traffic, combining enterprise-grade security into a traditional all-in-one firewall platform has proven a daunting challenge,” said Peter Newton, senior director of product management for the Commercial Business Unit of NETGEAR.
“We developed the UTM25S as a direct result of customer feedback. It fills a strategic gap for customers that require all of the features of our UTM9S appliance, but have a higher volume of Internet traffic to manage,” Newton added.
Key features of the UTM25S include an application control/application firewall, anti-malware from email, anti-malware from web browsing, and spam and content filtering. It offers an SPI firewall and VPN tunnels using either IPSec or SSL.
The UTM25S also features multi-WAN capability for load balancing and failover connectivity, with options including Ethernet, DSL, or 3G — even 4G/LTE when paired with a Netgear Mobile Broadband Router (MBR1515 or MBR1517).
