High-Performance Unified Threat Management

Ambitious UK 'Start-Up' Answers Small Business Demand  

NetPilot's UTM Range Boasts Industry's First On-Board 3rd Generation SSL VPN

Bristol-based NetPilot Internet Security (NIS) has today unveiled its advanced range of Unified Threat Management solutions which benefit organisations from 25 to 500 users with the highest possible level of end-to-end security, compliance and access controls whilst not compromising performance. The NetPilot Guardsman, Vanguard and Globemaster appliances incorporating SSL VPN Plus™ provide outstanding throughput that exceeds IPSec and can even exceed wire speed performance. NetPilot's are the only UTM appliances available with SSL VPN Plus™, powered by Neoaccel.

"Small and mid-sized businesses depend upon fast IP links, but many security manufacturers struggle to meet these demands with solutions that take too much time to process traffic," commented Jamie Pushman, Director of Sales and co-founder at NIS. "The trend toward greater cloud computing is pushing computing resources even further away from users, increasing the need for strong encryption and policy enforcement from endpoint to endpoint, and increasing the strain upon performance and uptime. However, our unique OEM agreement with international industry leaders Neoaccel puts our UK customers at a distinct advantage. The NetPilot platforms' comprehensive UTM capabilities inspect traffic for all major threats, while SSL VPN Plus™ optimises the connection."

The NetPilot range scales from the 25-user Guardsman S2025 right up to the 500-user Globemaster R2500. All come fully loaded with a range of advanced features including minimum 40GB solid-state storage (up to 160GB for the R2500), on-board SSL VPN Plus™, and a full range of UTM components including email anti-virus (Clam or Sophos depending on bundle purchased), email policy filtering, advanced firewall, anti-spam and URL filtering. All but the smallest appliances also feature anti-spyware, browsing anti-virus and IDS.

SSL VPN Plus™ supports RSA, Citrix, reverse proxy, RADIUS and AD, and comes with comprehensive user-based access controls, data leakage prevention, and full log/audit reporting as standard. Its self-installing Java agent also eliminates costly remote client management issues.

Prices (including UTM Standard bundle) start at £895 plus VAT. The NetPilot appliances are also available at base units providing firewall and VPN functionality only.
