New StoneGate Firewall Appliance Aimed At Small Businesses, Branch Offices

New StoneGate FW-315 firewall appliance meets the security needs of small networks and branch offices
London UK – 30 August, 2011 – Stonesoft today introduces the StoneGate FW-315 firewall/VPN appliance with UTM functionality, which has been designed for small networks and branch offices. StoneGate FW-315 provides reliable data security combined with high availability features, which guarantee network continuity at all times.

“There is no reason why remote offices should suffer from poor security, or why organisations should take any risks of security breaches or malware spreading to their network from a remote location. Remote offices require direct Internet connections and comprehensive protection against inbound and outbound attacks. Often computers at remote locations are at a higher risk of getting infected or compromised than at the headquarters, where there is less competence or people don’t pay as much attention to security issues. The new FW-315 has been designed to meet these needs, offering remote offices high level security and reliable network connections”, said Antti Kuvaja, director of product management at Stonesoft.

StoneGate FW-315 provides comprehensive protection with Unified Threat Management (UTM) features such as web filtering, intrusion prevention for e-mail, HTTP, and VoIP, anti-spam for SMTP e-mail and anti-virus scanning for e-mail and HTTP protocols.

Built-in firewall clustering, server load balancing and the possibility to utilise reserve ISP capacity on overloaded Internet connections, ensures continuous network services.

With four interfaces StoneGate FW-315 offers also the possibility for small-scale network segmentation. The appliance is also available with an ADSL+2 interface.

Availability

The StoneGate FW-315 is currently available for shipping.
