  • 21 March, 2007 17:21

<p>New features to propel appliance to top of UTM class</p>
<p>Digital Data Comms Australia, today releases a Unified Threat Management (UTM) appliance, DrayTek VigorPro 5500, which is a Dual-WAN Security Router bundled with Kaspersky® SafeStream Anti-Virus software to provide advanced anti-virus capabilities for small and medium businesses (SMBs) and corporate.</p>
<p>For SMBs that do not have dedicated IT staff, VigorPro 5500 provides an effective security package. This appliance stops viruses at the router before they reach individual PC/NB ends, and provides protection from malware, web filtering, and so on both from inside and outside networks.</p>
<p>Vitaly Bezrodnykh, Business Development Director at Kaspersky Lab, says: "We are confident that our long-term partnership with DrayTek will be a mutually beneficial one. From an SMB's perspective, it will benefit greatly from the DrayTek VigorPro 5500 UTM appliance as it will address all their security needs - and they have the added peace of mind that the Kaspersky SafeStream anti-virus component is second to none."</p>
<p>Comments Donald Lin, Vice President of DrayTek Corp (Taiwan Stock Ex.: 6216) : "VigorPro 5500 UTM integrates gateway anti-virus and anti-intrusion technology with versatile 'anti-X' security functions, providing great system performance. The integration of Kaspersky SafeStream assures users that they are being protected by anti-virus technology that features world-leading response times to the most active malicious threats."</p>
<p>DrayTek VigorPro 5500 performs Layer 7 packet inspection, meaning it checks all incoming data packets against patterns or protocols that are stored in its signature-based Intrusion Detection and Prevention (IDP) program. This is how the appliance blocks viruses, worms, VoIP threats, Trojans, or any other malware hidden inside multiple packets.</p>
<p>In order to provide the inline inspection without reducing system performance, VigorPro 5500 implements unique Multi-Stack Stateful Inspection (MSSI) scanning technology together with hardware-accelerated scan engine.</p>
<p>The Dual-WAN capability means that the users can have 2 separate Internet accesses and can stack the capacity up (Load Balancing) or use one as a backup if the other access fails (Failover).</p>
<p>Equipped with a powerful Intel CPU, DrayTek VigorPro 5500 provides network protection and handles traffic for complex corporate network infrastructures with multi-sites through up to 200 Virtual Private Network (VPN) tunnels.</p>
