LAN-GUARD is the culmination of Addlogix's commitment to simplified network security
Irvine, CA (PRWEB) September 29, 2009
Addlogix today announced that its comprehensive, all-in-one, UTM (Unified Threat Management) protection device called LAN-GUARD is shipping immediately from major distributors and online retailers. With LAN-GUARD, users no longer have to pay individual license fees for each computer's anti-virus protection and other security software! LAN-GUARD installs between the network's modem and router, inspecting every data packet passing through it, and eliminating identified threats for ALL devices on the network.
LAN-GUARD performs packet-level inspection for any identified threats, and eliminates threats on the fly. Four separate protection engines currently run within LAN-GUARD: Anti-Virus, Intrusion Protection, Application Guard, and Web-Guard. The Anti-Virus module identifies viruses and eliminates them, even when contained within a compressed ZIP file. The Intrusion Protection module prevents hackers from disrupting or gaining access to vulnerable areas of your network. Application Guard can be configured to limit the internet access of various P2P, social networking, and similar applications from within the network. Lastly, Web Guard protects users from Phishing sites and malicious website redirections. Signatures of threats are updated by LAN-GUARD through a centralized server, which is maintained regularly by web security professionals.
"LAN-GUARD is the culmination of Addlogix's commitment to simplified network security" said Sharon Charna, president of Addlogix. "As you know, Addlogix manufactures many network-based products, and adding a security product which protects not only computers but also other networked devices made sense"
Though zero-cost "free" anti-virus software is available from many websites, the intentionally weak protection gives users a false sense of security, dangerously exposing their computers to increased and cleverer security threats, coercing users to pay for "full-featured software" for each and every computer, yet still leaving other networked devices vulnerable to threats.
But because LAN-GUARD protects all networked computers and devices, non-computers such as IP cameras, NAS hard drives, routers, wireless smart phones, DVRs, and game consoles are equally protected from web-based threats - a feat no antivirus software can provide.
LAN-GUARD carries an MSRP of $149, and for a limited time, it includes 3 years of signature updates. With security software fees costing anywhere from $30 to $60 for each individual computer, one LAN-GUARD device and license can protect several computers in a home network, small business, or even subnet in a larger enterprise, saving hundreds of dollars annually.
LAN-GUARD'S part number is LG-2000, and it is available now at Buy.com. For more information about the product, visit http://www.LAN-GUARD.com.
