Clavister's Latest Network Security Operating System Enables Secure Virtualization
30 September 2008 - IP-based security and unified threat management (UTM) specialist, Clavister has today launched the latest version of its award-winning network security operating system. Clavister CorePlus 9.10 delivers support for virtualization and improved traffic optimization to its UTM security portfolio.
At a time when companies are looking to save money and streamline operations with server consolidation, virtualization is increasingly being adopted. Up until now, security solutions for virtualization have been limited. Companies now have the option to buy Clavister Security Gateways supporting virtualization using VMware ESXi 3 as a virtual appliance or as conventional hardware or software appliances to suit their networks requirements.
The continued growth of enterprise applications such as VoIP, and the addition of them to the network, means that companies are experiencing increased levels of traffic on the network. This introduces new security challenges and can lead to uncontrolled bandwidth consumption. Clavister's new operating system brings with it a number of features for traffic optimization including gigabit traffic shaping, IDP traffic shaping, route load balancing and SLB server monitoring.
Kurt Glazemakers, VP Engineering of the European Business Unit for Terremark Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ: TMRK), a leading global provider of IT infrastructure services, said: "This new release allows us to add state-of-the-art virtual security appliance offerings to our product portfolio, making use of our fully redundant and scalable InfinistructureTM platform."
Andreas ...sander, VP Product Management, Clavister added: "In addition to the green and economic benefits that result from security virtualization, this operating system allows for the management of additional features without increasing workload."
In addition to traffic management and optimization and support for virtualization CorePlus 9.10 also features:
VoIP/SIP enhancements - A number of new features gives much more flexibility in terms of network setups, such as SIP proxy placement, SIP extensions and security enhancements.
SSL/TLS termination - Supports TLS/SSL termination and the transformation of HTTPS traffic to HTTP traffic, providing the possibility to perform deep content inspection of the traffic. It also offers a single source for managing all certificates for all servers.
LDAP authentication - Provides support for direct connectivity between Clavister Security Gateways and LDAP directory services such as Microsoft Active Directory.
CorePlus 9.10 is available through the Clavister Partner Network and via www.clavister.com. Existing customers with an active Clavister Software Maintenance Agreement will be able to upgrade for free.
CorePlus 9.10 is an important upgrade to the core operating system that lies at the heart of Clavister's product portfolio that can be configured and fine tuned to produce exactly the right level of protection.
Its core offering is the ability to monitor network traffic, protect critical business assets and block undesirable surfing. It also protects against intrusion, viruses, worms, Trojans and denial-of-service attacks; is easily managed and seamlessly scalable and adapts to the needs of any customer from small organisations to large Internet Service Providers, Managed Security Service Providers or multimedia-ready telecom operators.
