CyberGuard Breaks New Ground with Introduction of SG560 Security/WAN Appliance
SG560 Provides Small/Medium Businesses and Branch Offices of Larger Organizations with Enterprise-Class Firewall/VPN and WAN Solution BOCA RATON, Fla., Aug. 3 -- CyberGuard Corporation (NASDAQ:CGFW), a global provider of security solutions that protect the critical assets of the largest and most complex information networks for Global 2000 enterprises and government organizations, today announced the release of a feature-rich, compact, network security and Wide Area Network (WAN) connectivity device designed to secure small and medium businesses and the small branch offices of larger companies with mixed environments of LAN, mobile and guest users. The SG560 provides 120Mbps of firewall throughput, and up to 100 IPSec tunnels, encrypted throughput of 35Mbps (AES) and comes standard with two WAN ports, fail-over capability and traffic shaping (QoS). With a powerful stateful-inspection firewall, three pre-configured security zones on separate LAN segments, service-based intrusion detection blocking, and advanced Internet connection sharing to protect the branch office network from the Internet, the SG560 delivers the blended protection organizations are demanding to thwart increasingly complex internal and external threats. The SG560 offers unlimited user licensing and is fully compatible with other CyberGuard security appliances and other standards-based platforms. "The SG560 provides WAN connectivity and security features normally found only in enterprise-class solutions," said Pat Clawson, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, CyberGuard Corporation. "This furthers our vision to provide high-performance, centrally managed security solutions that scale from corporate headquarters down to branch offices and satellite locations." The SG560 is a cost-effective VPN endpoint device that can safely connect a remote office to a central office network using secure, industry standard VPN access methods (IPSec, PPTP, L2TP) with hardware-accelerated encryption. The SG560 can also serve as the head-end device for smaller networks. With the inclusion of five Fast Ethernet ports, link fail-over and Internet session load balancing as well as multiple security zones, the SG560 can be deployed in a myriad of environments. If the primary broadband connection fails, the SG560 can automatically fail over to a second Internet connection or balance traffic between them, helping businesses realize the full benefits of their network bandwidth. In case of a complete broadband failure, the SG560 can restore connectivity quickly and automatically via a dial-up connection. The SG560 provides: - Three separate security zones (DMZ, Guest and LAN) - High Firewall and VPN throughput - Dual WAN fail-over and load balancing - Unlimited users and VPN tunnels - Lower total cost of ownership Pricing and Availability CyberGuard's SG560 appliance is available immediately and priced at US $399 MSRP.
