"More and more of our customers are moving to virtualized environments and are asking for the same high-level of protection that InstaGate and ThreatWall provide in a traditional environment but in their new virtualized environments," said Mike Donnell, CEO of eSoft. "This solution not only satisfies that requirement, but also complements their virtualization strategy in reducing costs."

The virtual InstaGate products feature a full stateful firewall with deep packet inspection out of the box and can be customized with additional network, email and web security services including gateway anti-virus, Web content filtering, intrusion prevention, bot detection, and IM and P2P application blocking. The virtual ThreatWall is intended for customers who already have a firewall but need access to these same important eSoft security services.

In a recent SC Magazine review, eSoft's InstaGate product scored 5 out of 5 stars for its Features, Ease of Use, Performance, Documentation and Support with the following references:

o Ease of use: "This tool is about as close to plug-and-play as it gets. The initial deployment is guided by a web-based setup wizard and takes just a few minutes to actually run through."

o Simplified GUI: "with a very organized layout, it is still quite easy and intuitive to navigate. While the appliance is pretty much ready to go after the setup wizard, tweaking and customizing policies and rules is easy to do within the interface."

o Powerful tool, ThreatMonitor: "This provides near real-time statistics that are easy to read and provide a solid bird's-eye view of the latest threats and policy violations."
