Fortinet's firewall solution has given ServePath the ability to scale our managed firewall needs on a just-in-time basis without requiring additional resources from our staff.
San Francisco, CA (Vocus) October 1, 2008
With hacker and network attacks commonplace within the computer industry, ServePath, the leading San Francisco collocation, hosted and managed server, virtual server and hosted streaming media provider, has taken further measures to combat security threats through an on-going partnership with Fortinet. Offering a variety of managed security products and services, ServePath continues its desire to provide its customers the most robust threat management packages available in the managed hosting industry.
Built using features within Fortinet's FortiGate appliance, ServePath now offers its customers a Unified Threat Management suite though Fortinet's virtual chassis-based firewall. ServePath today launched an updated, more feature-rich yet less expensive combined threat prevention package with the following services:
ServePath Internet Security Package (using Fortinet technology) includes:
o Fortinet ASIC accelerated firewall
o Unlimited IP addresses in a trusted interface
o 100 Mpbs Internet traffic throughput
o 100,000 concurrent sessions
o Intrusion Prevention Services (ISP)
o AntiVirus/AntiSpyware/AntiMalware Protection
Originally priced at $449.99 per month with a $299.99 setup charge, the ServePath Internet Security Package has been reduced in price to $99.99 per month with a $99.99 setup charge. This drastic reduction in price reflects ServePath's desire and commitment to ensuring its users have the latest and most advanced threat prevention package available.
"Fortinet's firewall solution has given ServePath the ability to scale our managed firewall needs on a just-in-time basis without requiring additional resources from our staff." said Telemachus Luu, Director of Product Engineering at ServePath. Luu went on to say: "In addition, with Fortinet's approach to a unified threat management system, ServePath is now able to offer additional security features such as AV, IPS, and VPN from a single appliance."
The Fortinet platform allows ServePath to provide a centralized managed firewall service for its dedicated server customers. 500 Virtual Domains (VDOMs) can be managed through a single device, giving ServePath the ability to deploy virtualized security domains that are completely separate from other VDOMs.
Customers have the ability to deploy basic firewall services such as packet filtering, as well as provision additional services such as AntiVirus, Intrusion Prevention Systems and Virtual Private Networks (AV, IPS, and VPN). Each Fortinet appliance is multi-tenant, which allows ServePath to give its customers the ability to modify the configuration of their virtual domain without compromising administrative access to other virtual domains.
