Network security appliance specialist Cyberoam, a Sophos company, has added three new next-generation firewall appliances to its next generation firewall (NGFW) portfolio, which offer compromise-free performance to medium-large organisations in Malaysia, it said.

Cyberoam Malaysia channel manager Pauline Jacintha said the new NGFWs - CR1000iNG-XP, CR1500iNG-XP and CR2500iNG-XP - offer the best mix of performance, security, flexibility and price to this segment.

"Malaysian medium-large enterprises (1000-6000 users) are often forced to compromise on performance, security, flexibility or price," said Jacintha.

"The new Cyberoam Next-Generation Firewalls address this gap by offering the best fit on all these parameters," she said. "The CR1000iNG-XP, CR1500iNG-XP and CR2500iNG-XP appliances come with FleXi Ports that offer I/O slots for additional Copper 1G, Fiber 1G/10G ports on the same appliance, along with high performance and next-generation security features to medium-large enterprises."

"FleXi Ports lower initial costs by offering the flexibility to add desired network interface modules as and when required, at the same time protecting investment in the future," said Jacintha.

She said the Cyberoam NGFWs come with Layer 8 Identity-based technology for actionable intelligence and controls that offer complete security controls over L2-L8 [layers] for future-ready security in enterprises.

"Cyberoam's Next-Generation Firewall protection is EAL4+ certified and offers Layer 8 Identity-based security, application visibility and controls, Intrusion Prevention System, website filtering, HTTPS inspection, VPN (IPSec and SSL) and granular bandwidth controls," said Jacintha.

"There are additional security features such as Web Application Firewall, Gateway Anti-Virus, Gateway Anti-Spam, and more, are also available," she said.

"The Extensible Security Architecture helps enterprises tackle unknown threats of the future by offering the agility to prolong the life and performance of its NGFW appliances to support newer enterprise security features and enhancements," said Jacintha.
