CyberGuard Unveils New Multi-Gigabit Security Appliance Powerhouse
SL3200 – Newest in Line of High Performance Firewall/VPN Appliances – To Deliver Major Price/Performance Boost
Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. (July 9, 2003) – CyberGuard Corporation (NASDAQ: CGFW), the technology leader in network security, announced today that it has begun shipping a powerful new model in its line of firewall/VPN appliances to customers around the world. The SL3200 incorporates CyberGuard’s recently acquired NetOctaveÃ¢â€ž? technology to deliver a 60-percent performance increase over the SL2000, CyberGuard’s previous price/performance leader.
Pat Clawson, president of CyberGuard Corporation stated, “Our government and enterprise customers are trying to balance securing their networks with accommodating the explosive increase in bandwidth required to connect users and data-rich applications across the enterprise. The SL3200 enables organizations to meet both of these requirements.”
Clawson added that CyberGuard is beginning to see the benefits of its NetOctave acquisition earlier in the year, as the company takes advantage of some of the best and brightest hardware acceleration experts to deliver faster and faster performance at a compelling price.
Mike Wittig, chief technology officer for CyberGuard, says the acquisition gives CyberGuard a competitive advantage. “CyberGuard is a leader in providing the highest levels of security. Our NetOctave division is an industry leader in manufacturing high-quality, high-performance security processors and accelerator boards for the SSL and IPsec markets. Our customers get the benefit of our combined R&D expertise,” explains Wittig. “This translates into shorter development times, more flexibility, and access to the latest technologies. We will continue to deliver faster performance at the same time we are focusing our efforts on software innovation and enhancing product functionality.”
In addition to the SL3200, which is designed for the most demanding high-bandwidth environments, CyberGuard offers:
Ã‚Â· Two models of its FS appliance – the FS250 and FS500 – designed for low to moderate bandwidth environments.
Ã‚Â· Two models of its popular KS appliance – KS1000 and KS1500 – for large enterprises.
Ã‚Â· A desktop appliance – the LX – designed for branch offices and satellite locations.
