Network Platforms, a network infrastructure management solutions and services company, has announced that it had secured the sub-distribution rights for Cyberoam’s unified threat management (UTM) product.
“We have been searching some time for a UTM product that has all the functionality, pricing and stability that Cyberoam’s products have to offer and when we benchmarked it against several of its competitors, it won hands down as a result of the functionality it offered, its pricing and the user-friendly interface it offers,” says Bradley Love, MD of Network Platforms.
“One of the other capabilities that stood out for us was the reporting on the appliance, which can either integrate with or run independently of Active Directory,” he continues. “User levels can be created so clients can be supplied with a user name and password to access the reporting and can view what Web sites users are visiting.
“Other features of significance include the flexibility of the pricing model, the capability to have multiple WAN connections and the ability to configure to alternative or backup connections should the primary connection fail. The provision, implementation and support of Cyberoam is just another of the many services that are in the portfolio that we offer to our clients.”
Cyberoam UTM delivers enterprise-class network security with stateful inspection firewall, VPN and IPS, offering the Human Layer 8 identity-based controls and Layer 7 application controls. It ensures high levels of network security, network connectivity, continuous availability and secure remote access with controlled network access to road warriors, telecommuters, partners and customers alike.
With granular controls and advanced networking features, Cyberoam UTM appliances offer enterprise-class security and high flexibility with protection against blended threats, malware, Trojans, DoS, DDoS, IP spoofing attacks, spam, intrusions and data leakage.
Cyberoam is a division of Elitecore Technologies, a company whose major investor is The Carlyle Group, one of the world’s top private equity companies.
