Trustix Enterprise Firewall delivers free security for enterprise networks

JERSEY CITY, N.J. -- Comodo, a leading security company, announced today the release of Trustix™ Enterprise Firewall version 4.8, (TEF) a free enterprise class LINUX-based firewall solution. Trustix™ Enterprise Firewall delivers a high performance firewall to monitor network traffic and protect the network against unauthenticated traffic or login attempts that may inject Trojans, worms, or infected files into the network. TEF, widely acclaimed for its innovative WYSIWYG interface in combination with its sophisticated security features, remains free for use without requiring any licensing, subscription, or renewal fees.

Firewalls are designed to allow or block network traffic based on a number of criteria, usually related to where the traffic is coming from and what ports or services are being used. Comodo's offering provides core firewall functionality but also contains several additional security and usability features to safeguard a company's network including:

  • Monitoring traffic volume and the type of traffic
  • Advising administrator about malicious activity and how many attempts there were to break into the network
  • A fully-featured packet-filtering router with advanced capabilities
  • A unique, intuitive GUI enabling administrators to visualize and edit firewall policy plus manage traffic for all security zones (up to 24) as well as port forwarding, Network Address Translation (NAT) and Virtual Private Network (VPN) configurations
  • Packet-filtering enabling TEF to act as a router to accelerate data transmission
  • Command-line scanner
  • Fast, multi-threaded daemon with support for on-access scanning
  • Milter interface for sendmail
  • Virus database auto updater, virus scanner C library and on-access scanning
  • Built-in support for various archive formats such as - Zip, RAR, Tar, Gzip, Bzip2, OLE2, Cabinet, CHM, BinHex, SIS and others, almost all mail file formats, ELF executables and popular document formats including MS Office and MacOffice files, HTML, RTF and PD
