In data transmission, bandwidths in the Gigabit range call for new IT security solutions. This applies in particular to traditional unified threat management (UTM) firewalls, which have limited performance. At this year’s CeBIT, the IT security company Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity will present an innovative solution that for the first time meets the challenges posed by higher bandwidths: the UTM+ firewall series with an integrated next-generation engine. The integrated software also comes with high-end features.
Munich, March 8, 2016 — The UTM+ firewall series was designed especially for the needs of medium sized businesses. It is just as powerful as a next-generation firewall (NGFW) due to the integrated single-pass technology. While the efficiency of a traditional UTM appliances ends in the megabit range, UTM+ appliances provide performance in the Gigabit range. And they offer even more: the UTM+ models are easy-to-use, all-in-one solutions and are significantly less expensive than next-generation firewalls.
In addition to single-pass technology, further high-performance next-generation firewall features were integrated into the new UTM+ solution. These include, for example, security mechanisms such as port-independent SSL decryption for automatic analysis of encrypted data traffic. The permanent layer 7 scanner ensures complete and continuous analysis of data packets – even after successful validation. The application control feature allows a fine-grained analysis of network traffic. The firewall operating system is additionally protected with a highly secure firewall container system. Like all new Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity products to be showcased at CeBIT, the UTM+ firewalls follow the innovative approach “security by design”, which prevents attacks proactively rather than reactively.
Security certificate: made in Germany
At CeBIT 2016, the Rohde & Schwarz security companies gateprotect, Sirrix, Rohde & Schwarz SIT and ipoque will, for the first time, bundle their broad ranges of technologically leading IT and network security solutions under the umbrella of the new Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity GmbH. The first product of this new big player is the UTM+ V16.
The UTM+ V16 is the improved successor model to the successful GP series with V15 software from gateprotect. The V16 software is not only more powerful, but can be optically recognized as a Rohde & Schwarz product. Instead of the familiar red, it now comes in the blue and gray Rohde & Schwarz corporate colors.
Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity, a 100 % subsidiary of the Rohde & Schwarz electronics group, develops and manufactures its products exclusively in Germany. Customers can therefore rely on the stringent German quality and data protection standards as well as maximum performance for all Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity products.
