Netgear Brings Enterprise-Class Security To Small Businesses And Telecommuters For Under $300

ProSecure UTM5 enables small companies to protect themselves using a wide array of defenses

SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ProSecure, the specialized network security brand by NETGEAR, Inc. (Nasdaq: NTGR), a worldwide provider of technologically innovative, branded networking solutions, today unveiled the ProSecure UTM5. The UTM5 is a strongly differentiated gateway security appliance that extends enterprise-class Unified Threat Management (UTM) technology to any small business, home networks for telecommuters, and small branch offices around five users in size. Distributed via NETGEAR's worldwide channel partner program, the ProSecure UTM5 appliances come with simple subscription options without any per-user licensing.

The UTM5 enables small companies to protect themselves using a wide array of defenses including firewall, SSL and IPSec VPN, URL filtering, network antivirus, and antispam, but in a very small, easy-to-use form factor and with a corresponding price point. IT departments can also use the UTM5 to protect the home networks of telecommuters, as these remote employees often share connections with other endpoints that may not be as secure as a corporate laptop.

"Several months ago, we replaced our SonicWALL Internet gateway with the ProSecure UTM appliance," said Phillip Harvey, CTO for Active Ingredients, a digital marketing company in Larkspur, Calif. "The UTM has kept us malware-free and blocked access to unwanted sites that often pop open from otherwise legitimate sites. The SSL VPN has also enabled our team to quickly access resources across various servers from both our Macs and PCs. Even with all its security, the UTM5 has not slowed down our large file transfers and allows us the luxury of focusing on our creative work rather than worrying about Internet threats."

The ProSecure UTM5 is an extension of the award-winning ProSecure UTM10 and UTM25 Unified Threat Management series that has been independently determined to be up to four and a half times more effective at stopping threats than competing security products from SonicWALL, Watchguard and Fortinet. More details on the results and the testing methodology can be found here: http://www.tolly.com/DocDetail.aspx?DocNumber=209131.

The ProSecure UTM5 leverages security technologies from leading security partners Sophos, Mailshell(TM) and Commtouch, as well as NETGEAR's patent-pending Stream Scanning technology to deliver comprehensive, best-of-breed security with high performance and ease-of-use at a price point that maps to small business budgets. Those, combined with proven NETGEAR firewall and VPN functionality, form an effective and ideal security solution for small branch offices and micro-sized businesses.

"The small office and business have traditionally been underserved - gateway security for these situations has typically involved consumer-class gear which can't keep up with sophisticated attacks which threaten businesses of all sizes," said Jason Leung, NETGEAR's senior product line manager for SMB Security. "ProSecure is bringing our award-winning UTM technology - technology that has been proven to stop more threats than the competition -- down to an acceptable price point and easy-to-use format for these entities."

Pricing and Availability

With full 24/7 technical support that connects businesses directly with experienced security experts, the ProSecure UTM Series of Security Appliances is changing the face of business security. The ProSecure UTM5 is available immediately through value-added resellers and partners such as CDW and VirtualGraffiti.com, for an estimated U.S. street price starting at $275, with the option of bundling one-year subscriptions for web security, email security, support and maintenance to bring the total to $399.
