SnapGear has released a Central Management System console for its Linux-based firewall and VPN appliances, providing a sorely needed component for its devices: central management.
IT managers looking for network protection for branch offices can put SnapGear on their prospect list because CMS makes it possible to develop and deploy policies for large numbers of SnapGear appliances. Previously, this task had to be performed one device at a time.
The time is right for CMS: Security equipment provider CyberGuard is acquiring SnapGear, and CMS will likely be integrated with CyberGuards management system for its core network firewalls.
CMS costs $749 for 25 nodes and $2,500 to manage an unlimited number of SnapGear devices. Go to www.cyberguard.com com for more information.
