4/26/2005 - Intoto, a leading provider of network-centric secure gateway software for networking and communications Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), has announced the availability of multi-service security software platforms for Small to- Medium Enterprise (SME) gateway applications. The new iGateway software integrates Secure Socket Layer-VPN, anti-virus (AV) and anti-spam (AS) functionality, to enhance its existing firewall, intrusion prevention and Web filtering solutions for improved secure access, threat management and productivity assurance.
Intoto’s new multi-service security software platforms allow OEMs to deliver integrated security appliances and converged business gateways, two of the most rapidly growing networking product segments. Integrated security appliances offer an assortment of security capabilities in a single box including firewall/VPN, intrusion detection and prevention, and anti-virus. Some products may also include content filtering, anti-spam, and anti-spyware.
The iGateway software meets the security requirements for applications such as unified threat management appliances, security appliances, security routers, secure WLAN AP and switches, and VoIP IADs. iGateway SSL-VPN allows users to securely access key corporate resources at remote locations through any standard Web browser. Additionally, integrated antivirus and anti-spam features in the iGateway family provide a high level of data protection from malicious attacks and inappropriate or unwanted content.
“OEMs are looking for more integrated security functionality in their next-generation designs,” said Doug Makishima, vice president of marketing at Intoto. “Intoto continues to bring value to equipment manufacturers by expanding our product depth with features that ease user manageability and promotes user productivity. Our partnerships with leading software vendors allow us to integrate top-notch technologies into our current solutions, thus enabling OEMs to quickly implement vital security functionality into a single system.”
“Small-to-medium enterprises often do not have the onsite expertise and support necessary to manage a series of separate point solutions,” stated Keith Nissen, senior networking analyst at In-Stat. “As a result; users are looking for converged solutions that provide many security functions from a single platform. As this need continues to grow, OEMs will look to integrate software platforms that can address the requirements of convergence and produce all-in-one security solutions.”
According to In-Stat, the integrated security appliance market is poised for explosive growth, reaching $3.3 billion by 2009, while the business gateway, a new integrated networking product type that serves the entire data, security, and voice communications needs of small businesses and branch offices, may capture a significant portion of the total SME equipment market forecasted to grow to $16B in 2008.
Optimal Security Functionality for SMEs
iGateway SSL-VPN complements Intoto’s current VPN solutions by enabling access to applications to remote users such as telecommuters, mobile employees, customers, and partners. Depending on data sensitivity, the levels of security vary per application that is accessed by mobile or remote users. Because SSL is already widely deployed on PCs and Web browsers, minimal or no client software installation is needed. Its simple management and easy connection makes it ideal for network administrators.
Both iGateway AV and iGateway AS augment Intoto’s firewall, intrusion prevention and Webfiltering to improve productivity by eliminating workplace nuisances such as spam, viruses, worms, Trojan-horses and phishing schemes.
