Novell unveils security appliance

Novell this week is expected to launch a software-based security appliance for small and midsized businesses that will protect them from threats such as hackers, viruses, worms, spam and intrusions.

The Novell Security Manager, which will be unveiled at the RSA Conference this week in San Francisco, consists of software installed on an industry-standard server. Novell Security Manager, which is based on Linux, has a Web-based management interface and a reporting tool. Novell OEMs the software from Astaro, which sells security gateway appliances

Novell Security Manager includes six security applications -- firewall, VPN gateway, intrusion protection, virus protection, spam protection blocks and content filtering.

These capabilities allow an IT administrator to control the flow of traffic into an organization and block attacks on the network. The VPN capability provides secure network access to remote users. With spam protection blocks, the IT administrator can select rules, patterns and thresholds to quarantine or report suspected spam.

The Novell Security Manager sits at the edge of the network and can protect Windows, NetWare, Linux and Unix networks. Novell and Astaro are working on future releases of the Novell Security manager to include Novell's BorderManager functionality.

The Novell Security Manager is available now starting at US$315 for a single server and ten-device license.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
