Winning the UTM category supports our commitment to excellence in serving the SMB market with great solutions for enhanced cybersecurity.

eSoft announced it has received a top-industry designation, winning SC Magazine’s “Best Buy” for the second year in a row.

eSoft won the prestigious publication’s Unified Threat Management (UTM) group test (SC Magazine, March 2013). eSoft’s InstaGate 604 network security product received the highest possible score with an overall five out of five star rating in each of the six categories, including Features, Ease of Use, Performance, Documentation, Support, and Value for the Money.

“eSoft is proud to receive this sought-after accolade by SC Magazine,” said Bud Michael, eSoft’s CEO. “Winning the UTM category supports our commitment to excellence in serving the SMB market with great solutions for enhanced cybersecurity. Cybercrimes against small businesses are growing yearly and eSoft works diligently to provide the best network security available, with the most flexible and easy to manage products. Being named “Best Buy” is further confirmation that we are delivering value to our customers.”

In announcing the new rating, Peter Stephenson, SC Magazine’s technical editor stated, “The eSoft’s InstaGate 604 is a security appliance with an array of great features and functionality at a reasonable cost. This product offers a stateful firewall with deep packet inspection capabilities, proxy-based scanning, real-time threat monitoring, scanning of both web and email for worms and viruses, and protection from bots and other network attacks.”

Stephenson added, “We found this product to be about as plug and play as a network security appliance can get. The initial setup process takes just a few minutes and the appliance is pretty much up and protecting the network with just a few clicks of the mouse. We find this product to an excellent value for the money.
