Astaro To Bolster Security Gateway With Customer-Requested Features

Suggestions include real-time bandwidth monitoring, increased IPS performance on multicore installations and captive portal
June 15, 2009 (WILMINGTON, MA) " Astaro Corporation (http://www.astaro.com), a leading network security vendor, today announced that the company has improved its feature request process by creating a web service for suggesting features and improvements. Version 7.5 of the Astaro Security Gateway will include features suggested by partners and customers using this new tool. The inclusion of suggested features in the upcoming release of the Unified Threat Management product demonstrates Astaro's commitment to servicing customers' network security needs.

Astaro created the new feature request site to offer partners, customers and employees an outlet for suggesting features and improvements for future releases of Astaro's security products. Visitors to the new site can also vote on the suggestions of others, contributing weight to the urgency and popularity of a feature request. Astaro uses this feedback to appropriately plan future product releases and updates.

Some of the most requested features confirmed the product roadmap for version 7.5 of the Astaro Security Gateway and are already available in the beta version of the product. Some of these features include; real-time bandwidth monitoring, vastly increased IPS performance on multi-core installations and captive portal as well as many other additions and improvements.

"When evolving our products we listen closely to our market and ensure what we add is what they require," said Angelo Comazzetto, Product Manager, Astaro Corporation. "We believe our partners and end users have the best perspective when it comes to what features they require to solve their problems, and this is how we improve our products. We not only value their input, we welcome any suggestions that would benefit our customers and partners. This is why we set out to create an easy way for everyone to submit, track and gain visibility into the feature request process vs. our competitors. Ultimately, it is the customer who uses our products, so who would be better to ask for how it could be improved?"
