Bangkok--8 Jul--Mind PR

Allied Telesis, a universally recognized innovator of smart technologies for an information-driven world, today announced the launch of its Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFWs), a new range of sophisticated security appliances for protecting enterprise and government organizations, remote offices, and embedded applications.

Cyber threats are continually evolving and becoming more sophisticated. Targeted and tailored attacks are increasingly defeating traditional defenses, and so require a solution with greater intelligence and insight. And it's not just businesses that are at risk — an increasing number of embedded applications, such as those used for building management, surveillance and control, are being connected to the Internet. With the rise of the 'Internet of Things', the consequences of inadequate security are significant.

The new Allied Telesis NGFWs deliver a high-performance security platform with integrated application control, intrusion prevention, and actionable reporting. Increased protection is available by subscribing to leading security services that provide web filtering, anti-malware, and protection against advanced persistent threats.

These new products offer advanced security features in a manageable package that provides great value for money. Market feedback shows that three things are important to NGFW users: security, manageability, and performance. Utilizing best-of-breed security packages from industry-leading vendors means the new NGFWs can offer the best protection available. And with auto-updates, security never expires. Features such as application control allow security to be defined in terms of business rules rather than networking protocols, so policy enforcement is easier, and fewer mistakes are made.

The NGFWs offer simple management via a quick-start web-based GUI, and feature support for Allied Telesis Management Framework™ (AMF). AMF is a powerful technology that enables organizations to deploy networks in a fraction of the time, reduce operational expenditure, and enable their staff to focus on improving service delivery within their organizations.

Packed with power from advanced multi-core CPUs, the new NGFWs offer blazing performance levels for sustained high traffic throughput.

Allied Telesis is no stranger to information security. The company has been developing security appliances for more than 20 years and was one of the first manufacturers to deploy VPN functionality within its devices. NGFWs are a revolution for the organization, and raise internal and external threat protection to a whole new level.

"The new range of firewalls allows an enterprise to deploy next-generation security measures at the branch office, rather than relying on the firewall at the headquarters to protect everyone," commented Graham Walker, Product Manager at Allied Telesis. "These new products allow up-to-the-minute protection company-wide, and at a fraction of the cost of traditional firewall solutions."

With the increased use of mobility, BYO technology, cloud-based services and the Internet of Things, the Allied Telesis NGFWs enable organizations to easily make the move to user-based authentication and application-based control. Features such as high-throughput threat prevention, easy-to-use management, integration with leading edge IP reputation, and anti-malware services make the Allied Telesis Next-Generation Firewalls a fiercely competitive solution.
