Foundry Intros SecureIron

Foundry Networks announced the new SecureIron Perimeter Traffic Manager devices to augment perimeter security

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Foundry Networks(R), Inc. (NASDAQ:FDRY) , a performance and total solutions leader for end-to-end switching and routing, today announced the new SecureIron(TM) Perimeter Traffic Manager (PTM) devices to augment perimeter security and optimize application performance across multiple Wide Area Network (WAN) links. The SecureIron PTM augments and offloads traditional firewall security at the perimeter to protect the investment and extend the life of the firewalls. With ISP link aggregation and highly intelligent bandwidth management, the SecureIron PTM maximizes utilization of Internet capacity and provides Quality-of-Service (QoS) and prioritization to critical enterprise application traffic. Foundry Networks' modular hardware-based architecture ensures that the solution scales to meet the growing perimeter traffic demands of the customer as more critical services are remotely managed and used.

The SecureIron PTM is designed to be deployed as a front-end to existing traditional firewalls at the network perimeter for unmatched hardware-based protection against Denial-of-Service (DoS) attacks and application level threats. The devices can offload overburdened firewalls from key security features like Access Control Lists (ACL), DoS/DDoS, stateful Network Address Translation (NAT) and application rate controls to maximize the firewall performance for stateful inspection. The SecureIron solution enhances perimeter security by offloading and augmenting traditional firewalls for a fraction of the cost of PC-based security appliances or costly firewall upgrades, while scaling up to multiple Gigabits per second (Gbps) traffic management and security throughput. Additionally, the SecureIron PTM provides SPAM mitigation and Web filtering to enhance protection at the perimeter, which optimizes internal resource usage for legitimate traffic.

"Internal attacks and abuses are an enormous concern of all educational institutions like ours," said Robert Bowen, information technology manager for the Baldwin School District in New York. "We were intent on finding a traffic management device for security augmentation and usage control as the integral building block for our network infrastructure. SecureIron Perimeter Traffic Manager complements our existing Foundry LAN infrastructure by providing security augmentation for our network and individual users."
