July 14, 2014 (Mon): Allied Telesis, a global provider of secure IP/Ethernet switching solutions and an industry leader in the deployment of IP Triple Play networks, provided a glimpse of the future to customers across Malaysia with the announcement of their new Next Generation Firewalls at an event in the Sime Darby Convention Centre last Thursday.
Cyber threats are continually evolving and are becoming more sophisticated than ever. Targeted and tailored attacks are increasingly defeating traditional defenses and require a solution with greater intelligence and insight. The Allied Telesis Next Generation Firewall products 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. In addition, with the increase use of mobility, BYO technology and cloud-based services throughout organizations, the strong authentication within the Next Generation Firewall will enable organizations to simply make the move from device-based to user-based authentication.
Allied Telesis is no stranger to information security and has been developing security appliances for over 20 years and was one of the first vendors to deploy VPN functionality within their devices. The new Next Generation Firewalls are a revolution for the organization and raise internal and external threat protection to a whole new level.
“We are seeing considerable demand from customers looking for an integrated solution across their network from the edge to the core. Our Next Generation Firewalls deliver greater visibility and control over the enterprise network and provide a simpler infrastructure to administer and manage,” commented, Scott Penno, Allied Telesis APAC Regional Marketing Manager.
The Next Generation Firewalls feature support for Allied Telesis Management Framework or AMF that is of particular benefit to education, healthcare, and enterprise customers. These customers are under pressure to do more with less, and are increasingly looking for alternatives to their current networking vendor. AMF enables organizations to deploy networks in a fraction of the time, reduce operational expenditure, and enables their staff to focus on improving service delivery within their organization.
As for enterprises, a Next Generation Firewall can ensure staff are visiting sites that don’t affect their productivity and providing details to reliable external parties ensuring that the organisations information remains safe,” said Mr. Paul Choy, Country Sales Manager, Allied Telesis Malaysia Sdn Bhd.
Packed with an extensive array of features and functionality including high throughput threat prevention, single pane of glass management and integration with leading edge IP reputation and anti-malware services, the Allied Telesis Next Generation Firewalls deliver a solution unequalled in the market.
