Gateprotect Firewall Gets Hardware Boost

GPO series has been equipped with the latest processors and more RAM

Hamburg, 28. August 2013 – The German IT security specialist gateprotect has once again invested into the equipment of its next generation firewalls and is as of now offering all models with a new, more powerful hardware. The GPO series for comprehensive protection of small offices and home offices, the GPA series for the protection of medium-sized companies and the GPX series for larger networks have been equipped with the latest processors and more RAM. The new hardware architecture enables a significantly higher performance and more stability in all models and will protect company networks and data even more effectively at the same price.

"The requirements concerning IT security are continuing to increase. Since company networks are becoming more complex and more and more applications are being moved to the cloud, firewalls have to perform better and better. To be able to face these challenges even better and provide companies of all sizes and from all industries with reliable, easy-to-use security solutions "made in Germany" also in the future, we at gateprotect have once more significantly improved the performance of our hardware", explains gateprotect's CTO Stephan Ziegler. "Premium quality is important to us: Before delivery, each device goes through extensive performance tests at the manufacturer's premises. During these tests, all relevant components are checked. For example, a 24-hour "burn-in test" is conducted in a climate chamber."

Customers of small and medium-sized companies benefit most from the significantly increased performance of gateprotect firewalls: They receive the user-friendly, full UTM protection for their networks and data with the latest security features for blocking malware, safe surfing and with Application Control at the same price, but with a much better performance. The next generation firewalls of the GPZ series for enterprise solutions have already been available with new hardware since the end of last year.
