CyberGuard Announces New All-in-One Security Appliance to Protect Wired and Wireless Networks of Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises
Bracknell, UK, May 3, 2005 – CyberGuard Corporation (Nasdaq: CGFW), a global provider of security solutions that protect the critical assets of the largest and most complex information networks for Global 2000 enterprises and government organizations, today announced a new all-in-one wireless workgroup security and data access appliance, the CyberGuard SG565, designed to secure the wireless and wired local area networks of small and medium-sized enterprises.
“Small and medium-sized businesses under tight budgets face a unique challenge to protect the business-critical data accessed by a geographically-dispersed employee base often spread across multiple branch offices or retail locations, such as gas stations, stores or medical clinics,” said Pat Clawson, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, CyberGuard Corporation. “With CyberGuard’s new SG565, these businesses have a cost-effective and comprehensive security appliance that enables any remote office network to safely become part of a trusted central network – in effect, creating a secure instant office network.”
Unifying defences to combat blended threats via a single device combining firewall, intrusion prevention and gateway anti-virus is quickly becoming a requirement for small and medium-sized businesses. CyberGuard’s SG565 not only enables these capabilities over wired fast Ethernet and Wi-Fi WLAN networks, but also allows small offices to implement secure file and print services by attaching off-the-shelf USB disk drives and printers. The result is that small and medium-sized businesses, as well as larger enterprises with regional, branch and satellite offices, can quickly deploy remote or temporary office networks using a business-class desktop appliance costing £505 that delivers comprehensive network security functionality.
The CyberGuard SG565 also delivers these additional key features to small and medium-sized businesses:
* Five fast Ethernet ports which can be configured as separate security zones as well as a Wi-Fi 802.11g access point for mobile notebook PCs
* Industry-standard secure VPN access with hardware-accelerated encryption
* Link load-balancing for ISP fail-over and Internet bandwidth acceleration
* High availability through dual box peering
* Network attached storage (NAS) via USB drives and networking printing via USB printers
Pricing and Availability CyberGuard’s SG565 appliance will begin shipping in June and is priced at £505 MSRP with all features included by default and no arbitrary limits on users or connections. For more information or to contact a distributor in your area, please visit www.cyberguard.com.
