"Now, more than ever, an effective firewall solution is one of the most pertinent security tools an organization can implement. It allows IT managers the peace-of-mind of a protected network so they can concentrate on proactive, day-to-day matters," said Shawn Eldridge, vice president, marketing and products, BorderWare Technologies. "The BorderWare SteelGate firewall solution is our flagship firewall product. More than 30 percent of customers have been using the product for nine years or longer, which is a true testament to the dependability of the solution."
BorderWare SteelGate version 8.0 includes the best-of-bread attributes seen in past versions and complements those with new features, including:
In addition, the new version will continue to provide anti-malware, anti-virus, and anti-spyware protection, and integrates with the BorderWare ReputationAuthority, an effective reputation system that blocks and monitors email and Web traffic at the perimeter. The solution's unique architecture and ability to track multiple threat types in real-time, allows it to make a more informed and accurate decision about network traffic and provides security, flexibility, and high performance in a single solution.
"The most popular security technology continues to be the gateway firewall VPN. It is the mainstay tool for protecting data and securing networks," said Charles Kolodgy, research director at IDC. "Firewall VPNs have remained critical because they have continued to evolve with threats. Advanced features such as Borderware's ReputationAuthority, have been incorporated into the modern firewall VPN, allowing the products to handle complex threats and provide improved performance."
