<p>The <a href="http://www.billion.uk.com/product/biguard/biguards20.htm">Billion Electric BiGuard S20</a> is a VPN appliance aimed at small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), allowing remote access to applications on an office network, while also working as the firewall and internet gateway for the same network. It's a very capable unit, with many features you wouldn't necessarily expect to find on a lower-end unit, but it's let down by a difficult administrative interface and the use of ActiveX to provide some features. </p>
<p>The <a href="http://uk.trendmicro-europe.com/enterprise/products/products.php?cat=&prodgroup=1&family=53&id=226&rightnav=0,0">InterScan Gateway Security Appliance</a> (IGSA) is Trend Micro's flagship secure content management appliance. Pitched at mid-sized organisations of between 100 and 1000 employees, this bright-red rack-mount appliance is straightforward to install and virtually manages itself. There are also no hidden post-deployment costs, such as expensive client software or updates. You cannot, however, avoid the £496 yearly subscription charge. </p>
<p>A well-established vendor of software-based security tools, <a href="http://www.smoothwall.net/">SmoothWall</a> has taken the next logical step by developing a hardware based UTM (Unified Threat Management) appliance for small to medium sized businesses However, instead of simply porting its software to a low-cost platform (a common approach in this market), the company has gone for an ambitious dual-core-powered device, making it of interest to wide range of companies, large and small. </p>
ZyXEL's ZyWALL SSL 10 is an SSL VPN appliance aimed at small and medium-sized businesses, allowing secure remote access to files and applications on a company's network without manual installation of extra software. It can be used in place of or alongside an existing router or gateway, and offers an economical way to provide remote access to an office network. However, the hardware is somewhat limited, the licensing somewhat dubious and the management and user interfaces fixed and not necessarily easy to use.
Fortinet has taken their proven UTM firmware and hardware experience and combined those with a 24-port network switch. While perhaps not suited to larger enterprises, the FortiGate-224B certainly represents an excellent proposition for SMB or branch office deployment and worthy of further research.
Symantec Backup Exec 11d performs well, installation is a breeze and considering the ability to backup and restore individual database records and substantially reduce downtime, it isn't difficult to justify the price.
By doing away with the need for additional client software, SSL VPN gateways have revolutionised the remote LAN access market of late, making life simpler for end users and network managers alike. However, they’re mostly implemented as standalone appliances, which means yet another box to setup and manage. But not if you opt for the new <a href="http://www.billion.uk.com/product/biguard/biguards10.htm">BiGuard S10</a> from Billion Electric, which comes with an integrated router and firewall as well as an SSL VPN gateway.
The newest member of the Google search appliance family, the Google Mini, is aimed at small to medium-sized businesses looking to index and search information held on internal or public Web sites. No special knowledge is required and no additional software -- you just plug the Mini into your network and start indexing. At least that’s what Google would have you believe. In reality there’s a little more to it -- although not a great deal: the Google Mini took just over an hour to get up and running on our test network.
Sony's ultra thin and ultra stylish T series Cyber-shot is back with the 6-megapixel DSCT9.
On the face of it, a managed security service seems like a good idea -- simply pay someone else to protect your network rather than do it all yourself. However, such services can be expensive and, because you can’t see what’s going on, it’s hard to know whether you’re actually getting what you’ve paid for. This is not the case with <a href="http://www.network-box.co.uk">Network Box</a>, which delivers its security services via a locally configured appliance that can be monitored independently to see exactly what you’re getting for your money.
The market is awash with email security products, and choosing something to suit your particular needs can be an arduous task. However, if it’s the easy life you crave you could do a lot worse than MailFrontier’s Gateway Appliance, which really is one of the easiest security solutions we’ve come across.
Network security can almost be a full-time job these days, especially if you have lots of users to look after. To start with there’s the firewall to manage and, increasingly, one or more VPN servers for secure remote access. Not to mention all those antivirus, anti-spam, anti-spyware and content management tools, now considered essential in the fight against Internet intruders. However, there are products that can help reduce the workload, such as the ZyWALL UTM range from ZyXEL, which provides most of what you need in a single, easy to manage, box.
Norton AntiVirus 2006 improves its detection and removal of spyware and adware but lags behind the more proactive McAfee VirusScan 2006.
At first glance there appears to be nothing special about <a href="http://www.checkpoint.com/">Check Point’s</a> Connectra Web security gateway. Like other SSL-based VPN (Virtual Private Network) solutions, it’s designed to connect remote and mobile users to a corporate network, and do so without the need for special client software -- just an SSL-enabled browser. However, Connectra has a couple of extra tricks up its sleeve -- most notably, integrated application and endpoint security to protect the network against trojans, spyware and other nasties that could, otherwise, be spread by infected remote endpoints.
