Cyberoam the leading provider of identity-based Unified Threat Management solutions, today announced an extension to its “Accelerator Series” appliances, CR25ia and CR35ia. These high-value, low-priced appliances are ideal for channel partners and meet the price-performance-security requirements of small- and medium-sized businesses and branch offices.
Small organizations are as much at risk from evolving virus, worms, malware and other attacks as large organizations. With organizations moving beyond email to larger Internet business requirements, the Web has begun to play an increasingly critical role in their everyday functions. This is evident from the rise in the number of applications like SaaS, Web 2.0 and many bandwidth-hungry applications that organizations need for their business enhancement and to meet changing user practices. Hence, there is growing demand among organizations for security solutions that can ensure network connectivity and the resultant business continuity.
Yet, many organizations are also sensitive to the huge price tags that are attached to high performance. In case of branch offices, organizations are constrained by the need for high performance security solutions at a price point that keeps their security budget manageable.
Says Abhilash Sonwane, Vice-President, Product Management, Cyberoam, “Cyberoam addresses the three issues of price, performance and security expectations of our customers with the CR25ia and CR35ia, meeting the requirements of both small and medium office as well as branch office segments. We are happy to introduce this enhancement to our line of “Accelerator Series” appliances, offering best-in-class UTM throughputs even when the appliances are fully loaded, that is, when all the security features are running.” He adds, “The inability to meet high throughput requirements when all the security features function, slows down the network and lowers security levels. With this launch, we are delivering on our promise of comprehensive UTM security at the right price-performance value.”
The CR25ia and CR35ia appliances have been designed to withstand the increasingly performance-intensive security requirements at branch offices and small offices at a price point that stays within security budgets. With 2 to 4.5 times greater firewall throughput than that of comparable products, and 1.5 to 2 times the IPS, anti-virus and UTM throughput values, Cyberoam Accelerator Series can handle the entire spectrum of existing and emerging threats, meeting its promise of comprehensive security.
Cyberoam CR25ia and CR35ia deliver comprehensive protection with the full feature list, including Stateful Inspection Firewall, VPN (SSL VPN & IPSec), Gateway Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware, Gateway Anti-Spam, IPS, Content Filtering, Bandwidth Management, and Multiple Link Management. These appliances can be centrally managed through the Cyberoam Central Console. Their unique identity-based security protects organizations from internal threats that lead to data leakage.
Cyberoam is the only identity-based security appliance that enables organizations to see who is doing what in the network. Certified by ICSA, CheckMark and VPNC, Cyberoam has its presence in 55 countries and is the recipient of a 5-star rating from SC Magazine thrice in a row for its award-winning range of Identity-based UTM appliances.
