Funkwerk Launches New UTM Range

Funkwerk has announced a new range of UTM (Unified Threat Management) security appliances aimed at SMEs that provide all-round network security and are easy to configure and manage.

The UTMs bring together a wide range of security technologies in a single box, providing full protection against viruses, worms, Trojans, spam, DoS attacks, backdoors and many other forms of attack. Funkwerk also provides a firewall, intrusion protection, appliance level gateway and VPN (Virtual Private Network) along with various authentication mechanisms and a digital certificate server.

This combination of individual security functions in a single system means the Funkwerk UTMs protect companies more efficiently against network-based attacks. All data is checked in real time and dangerous, undesirable data packets stopped before they can exploit weak points in the network. And new threats are quickly averted using the integrated update mechanism.

“The new Funkwerk UTMs offer maximum protection at minimum cost and administrator workload because all of the security components are optimised to work together,” says Richard Welland, Area Sales Manager at Funkwerk Enterprise Communications. “Configuration is easy using the Express Setup Wizard and the web-based interface means the systems are ready for use in just a few short steps.”
