AlgoSec unveiled the AlgoSec Appliance 1000 Series creating an on-site hardware appliance for hosting the AlgoSec Firewall Analyzer and AlgoSec FireFlow products.
While traditional software has been widely adopted and SaaS and virtualization models have generated a great deal of attention during the last 12-24 months, the appliance form factor remains an essential provisioning model. For a large number of organizations, solution deployment via hardware is often the most convenient due to various factors such as network architecture, personnel and resource requirements, internal purchasing procedures and protocols.
The AlgoSec Appliance 1000 Series is ideal for those organizations that find it more efficient to provision hardware solutions through one department as opposed to other AlgoSec customer networks architected for the coordinated interdepartmental efforts that may be needed for SaaS, software or virtualized solution deployments. In addition, it streamlines operations by automating a number of security processes for customers utilizing their own servers.
The AlgoSec Appliance 1000 Series provides benefits that include:
- Perfectly matched platform for AlgoSec’s Firewall Analyzer and FireFlow
- Hardware platform simplifies installation and usage with a low Total Cost of Ownership
- and optimized operating system
- components ensuring maximum uptime
- On-demand addition of new capabilities to protect initial investment
The AlgoSec Appliance 1000 series is available in two models: the 1020 for networks employing up to 150 firewalls, and the 1080 which provides complete redundancy and failover for large enterprise security environments of up to 1000 different firewalls. Pricing starts at $4,900.
