ControlScan’s Unified Threat Management (UTM) Firewall service is ideal for any organization that seeks to provide a layered security approach against network attacks.
The UTM Firewall solution has a comprehensive suite of network services, eliminating the need for multiple appliances. Services include a next-generation firewall, content filtering, web search filtering, SNORT® based intrusion prevention, web caching, WAN optimization, multiple WAN uplinks and 4G failover. This technical data sheet provides an overview of the UTM Firewall capabilities, services and product specs.
The hardware platform is purpose-built for Layer 7 deep packet inspection with advanced security features while providing the throughput and capacity for modern, bandwidth-intensive networks. Layer 7 fingerprinting technology lets administrators identify unwanted content and applications and prevent recreational apps like BitTorrent from wasting precious bandwidth. It also uses the Webroot® BrightCloud URL categorization database for CIPA / IWF compliant content-filtering. Best of all, these industry-leading Layer 7 security engines and signatures are always kept up-to-date via the cloud, simplifying network security management and providing peace-of-mind to IT administrators.
Multiple WAN ports with balancing and failover enable the use of redundant commodity Internet connections, providing additional bandwidth and higher reliability. For remote sites where multiple wireline providers are difficult to secure, the UTM appliance can fail over to 3G/4G wireless Internet connections.
Web caching temporarily stores video, media, and web documents, lowering bandwidth usage and accelerating the download speed of Internet content. WAN optimization dramatically improves application performance and reduces bandwidth requirements at remote sites. WAN optimization includes link compression and protocol optimization. Link compression reduces TCP traffic by 20% - 30%, and protocol optimization accelerates Windows File Sharing (CIFS), FTP, and HTTP transfers.
ControlScan’s appliances include a limited lifetime hardware warranty that provides next-day advance hardware replacement. Software upgrades, centralized systems management, and phone support are also included.
