These new offerings will provide organizations with even more options for securing their networks and accessing information.
Wilmington, MA (Vocus) March 4, 2010
Astaro Corporation, a leading Unified Threat Management provider, today announced that Astaro is currently developing three new products which will allow organizations to connect their network while remaining confident in its security and ensuring access to information. Also in development is version 8 of the Astaro Security Gateway. This next generation security platform will include a new user interface and support for IPv6.
Astaro recently announced the availability of the Astaro Security Gateway Essential Firewall Edition and the deployment of a new licensing model that opened new ways to deploy Unified Threat Management solutions by allowing customers to select the exact applications (e.g. Network, Mail or Web Security) that will solve their specific security challenges. The release of the three new products in 2010, Astaro RED (Remote Ethernet Device), Astaro Mail Archiving and Astaro Wireless Security, is the next phase in Astaro’s application strategy.
Customers will be able to add Astaro RED and Astaro Wireless Security to their current security deployment and integrate the Astaro Mail Archiving service with their mail client to automatically archive emails in the cloud and provide the ability to effortlessly search for archived mail.
“For ten years Astaro has offered Unified Threat Management products that today protect over 100,000 networks worldwide. Our new licensing model makes it possible for organizations of all sizes to tailor their security to fit the organization’s exact needs while securing their networks using enterprise-class technology,” said Jan Hichert, CEO, Astaro Corporation. “These new offerings will provide organizations with even more options for securing their networks and accessing information.”
Astaro RED is the first security solution to offer complete and centrally managed Unified Threat Management for branch offices. It empowers organizations to connect their remote locations to a central location (headquarters) within minutes and without onsite technical expertise.
