New Delhi, India - Astaro, a leading Unified Threat Management vendor, today announced the release of the Astaro Security Gateway Version 8. This major release comes with several new features and general improvements, providing SMB as well as enterprises with comprehensive protection. While Unified Threat Management has been the option of choice for the SMB sector for some time, Astaro's partners have observed an increasing demand from enterprises for integrated security solutions.
The latest version of Astaro's flagship solution comes with a host of new features, including:
The new features of the Astaro Security Gateway V8 appeal to both the enterprise and SMBs. For example companies can now track all network activities from users logged in from remote locations and completely block Internet traffic from selected countries. Additionally, the user interface of the Astaro Security Gateway has been revised in order to further simplify management tasks. These changes include the introduction of a search function which automatically brings up all menu items related to the administrator's query.
"Version 8 is further testimony of Astaro's commitment to innovation. Astaro will continue to invest R & D efforts in developing extremely useful features for our customers worldwide and in India. With features like Country level blocking, IPv6 support, configuration change auditing etc. security administrators get unprecedented ease of use, flexibility and ROI on their investment in Astaro solutions," said, Mr. Sunil Sapra, Country Manager- India/SAARC .
The security challenges for organizations are evolving rapidly. As companies grow and add new offices at remote locations, creating a greater need for multifunction firewalls, both in the SMBs and enterprises. "Like SMBs, enterprises search for a security solution that saves time and money and they like the idea of integrated functionality," said Gert Hansen, Vice President Product Management at Astaro. "But most UTM solutions lack functionality that is essential for the enterprise segment, like in the areas of revision and compliance. The new version 8 of the Astaro Security Gateway addresses these needs."
