Cyberoam expands its Accelerator Series appliances, part of the company's unified threat management solutions portfolio.
Cyberoam, a provider of identity-based unified threat management solutions, Dec.
14 announced an extension to its Accelerator Series appliances, the CR25ia and
CR35ia, aimed at small to medium-size businesses.
The CR25ia and CR35ia offer features including stateful inspection firewall,
VPN (SSL VPN and IPSec), gateway antivirus
and anti-spyware, gateway anti-spam, IPS,
content filtering, bandwidth management and multiple link management.
These appliances can be centrally managed through the Cyberoam Central
Console. The company said the CR25ia and CR35ia appliances have been designed
to withstand the increasingly performance-intensive security requirements at
branch offices and small offices at a price point that stays within security
budgets. With a claimed 2 to 4.5 times greater firewall throughput than that of
comparable products, and 1.5 to 2 times the IPS,
anti-virus and UTM throughput values, Cyberoam argues its Accelerator Series
can handle the entire spectrum of existing and emerging threats.
"Cyberoam addresses the three issues of price, performance and security
expectations of our customers with the CR25ia and CR35ia, meeting the
requirements of both small and medium offices as well as branch office
segments," said the company's vice president of product management, Abhilash
Sonwane. "We are happy to introduce this enhancement to our line of Accelerator
Series appliances, offering best-in-class UTM throughputs even when the
appliances are fully loaded; that is, when all the security features are

a single platform. The Cyberoam solution portfolio includes Cyberoam iView, an
open-source logging and reporting solution, and the Cyberoam Endpoint Data

"The inability to meet high throughput requirements when all the security
features function slows down the network and lowers security levels," Sonwane
said. "With this launch, we are delivering on our promise of comprehensive UTM
security at the right price-performance value."
In November, the company announced an Endpoint Data Protection suite to
secure corporate data and manage IT assets. The suite consists of four modules:
Data Protection and Encryption, Device Management, Application Control, and
Asset Management. With its policy-driven data protection and asset management,
the suite delivers Identity and group-based policy control as well as activity
logging to provide comprehensive control and visibility of data transfer over
removable devices; applications; chat applications such as Skype, MSN
and more; network sharing; and printers.
