Symantec announces VelociRaptor 1.5
VelociRaptor 1.5 is a popular firewall and VPN appliance. The new version now provides support for Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) and new proxy functions to best secure video conferencing. In addition, VelociRaptor offers the ability to extend the appliance’s scalability and eliminate network downtime by integrating high availability/load balancing.
Symantec VelociRaptor offers enterprise-class security by incorporating the hybrid security architecture of Symantec Enterprise Firewall. Unlike other firewalls that require users to open holes into their networks to support video conferencing, VelociRaptor extends its industry-leading security with new full application inspection proxy functions for video conferencing and application sharing (H.323, RTSP). VelociRaptor’s integrated full-inspection scanning technique prevents unauthorized access to private networks and confidential information by ensuring data is validated at all seven levels of the protocol stack. Symantec VelociRaptor offers advanced full-inspection engines and automated system hardening to provide more comprehensive protection against complex Internet threats, such as Code Red and Nimda, than traditional stateful inspection firewalls.
VelociRaptor also integrates Symantec’s proxy secured VPN technology that now includes the latest AES to provide high-level VPN security at speeds three-times faster than conventional 3DES technology. With its included standards-based gateway-to-gateway VPN, VelociRaptor extends enterprise networks and delivers secure site-to-site remote access to corporate LANs. The full VPN option provides secure remote-to-site tunnels for telecommuters and other remote users equipped with the Symantec Enterprise VPN client with integrated personal firewall.
The Symantec VelociRaptor appliance will be offered in three different models to accommodate varying license and performance needs. VelociRaptor 1100 is available at a suggested retail price of $4,495 and provides a 100-node license.
