Internet Security Solution BroadScan™ Enhanced with Intrusion Prevention System

Share Article

BroadScanÂ? Spam-Virus Firewall Appliances have been enhanced to provide small to medium businesses with the most efficient Internet security options. BroadScanÂ? now features intrusion detection and prevention (IDS/IPS) capabilities.

SOHOware has announced a new feature upgrade to its BroadScan™ Spam-Virus Firewall Appliances that adds intrusion detection and prevention (IDS/IPS) capabilities. The additional intrusion scanning and alerting functions further solidify BroadScan™ as an unprecedented value for Value-Added Resellers targeting small and medium business Internet security opportunities.

Dr. C.T. Wu, CEO of SOHOware, explains, “The IDS/IPS system layers a scanning intrusion signature database with nearly 3000 attack signatures over the existing heuristics behavior analysis to optimize threat control and management.” Dr. Wu went on to state that the system's response to attacks on Internet security range from logging the attack to blocking the attacker. Administrative management has the option to define Internet security alerting levels as necessary for efficiency, isolate traffic from higher risk sources, such as new users, for more intensive scrutiny, and individually assess each type of threat for its risk factor.

As an added convenience to their customers, SOHOware remains committed to supporting free Internet security signature updates to viruses, Spam, Spyware and now IDS/IPS. Ashok Kumar, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for SOHOware, said, “Free IDS/IPS updates considerably enhance the value proposition for VARs by remaining true to our 'no subscription fees' business model. Many VARs are telling us their frustrations with other Internet security appliance vendors who require separate subscriptions for virus, Spyware, intrusion protection and more. BroadScan™ has none of that.”

BroadScan™ is the most efficient and value-conscious Internet security system for small to medium businesses on the market today. Benefits of using the BroadScan™ Internet security system include:

  • Combined protection with complete Spam, Virus, and Spyware filtering with SPI Firewall, IPSec VPN, AAA RADIUS, QoS, and WAN load balancing in three models designed for small and mid-size businesses (A fourth model targeting the mid-Enterprise is to be released this month)
  • The industry's first subscription- and license-free business model that assures the best ROI for a UTM appliance
  • The intrusion signature database is constantly expanded to reflect new Internet security threat patterns and is available for update on demand or by pre-defined schedule
  • Free virus, Spam and Spyware updates for five years

The BroadScan™ Internet security appliances include four models:

  • The SCN200: a desktop 25 user gateway listing
  • The SCN1000: a rack mount 200-user appliance listing
  • The SCL2000: a 500-user appliance model that includes dual WAN load balancing
