European cybersecurity vendor Stormshield is ramping up promotions around its latest ranges of firewalls targeting threat management at distributed organisations with multiple sites.
Stormshield’s two new SN-S Series firewall solutions for smaller businesses, branch offices and remote locations with 50-100 users complement the SN-M Series unified threat management (UTM) range for delivery of modularity and scaleability, the vendor said.
Optional power supply redundancy is complemented with a single 1GbE small form-factor pluggable (SFP) fibre port and eight 2.5GbE copper interfaces as standard, with firewall throughput of 4-8Gbps.
“Finally, data confidentiality remains optimal through trusted platform module (TPM) chip secrecy, IPsec VPN, intrusion prevention and an integrated microSD port,” the company said in announcing the SN-S Series 220 and 320 appliances.
The SN-M Series 720 and SN-M Series 920 models are aimed at mid-size companies or large agencies. Housed in similar cases, both have a scaleable software platform. And these fit in a telecommunications rack, instead of the longer server-rack form factor, the company said.
“Companies can thus increase their user base from 300 to 500 simply by upgrading their licence,” according to Stormshield.
“To increase the network capacity and match its growth — network segmentation, multi-WAN and so on — [organisations] can simply change or add network cards. There is no need to change the hardware.”
According to the vendor, the SN-M Series 720 caters for up to 300 users, boasting 18Gbps throughput, dual power supply, two enhanced small form-factor pluggable (SFP+) fibre ports (10GbE) as standard, a network extension module, copper interfaces (eight x 2.5GbE as standard), and VPN performance of 4Gbps.
The SN-M Series 920 targets more complex architectures for up to 500 users, promising firewall performance of 36Gbps and faster VPN, it added.
Simon Dansette, product manager at Stormshield, said: “Because securing corporate infrastructure is an ongoing challenge, companies rely heavily on the ability of solution providers to keep pace.”
