The TSP 7100 Appliance will be available during the second quarter through CyberGuard’s global network of resellers.
“Large enterprises around the world have come to rely on CyberGuard’s security appliances to address the most demanding IT security threats,” said Pat Clawson, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, CyberGuard. “To that end, we have been hearing from our customers that the processing required to deliver optimum application-layer protection has created too much of a hit on network performance, therefore protection often is sacrificed for throughput. The new TSP 7100 Appliance directly addresses this concern, providing blended protection against network threats at gigabit speeds. We are excited to demonstrate this solution to our customers.”
CyberGuard’s TSP network security appliances blend multiple technologies that collectively create a unique protection solution to detect and defeat known and zero-day threats.
