Nokia has launched two network security appliances to filter malware traffic before it hits internal systems.

The new line consists of the high-end IP690 and low-end IP290. Security software applications have been added to the solutions via third-party OEM partnerships with specialists such as Sourcefire and Check Point.

The IP690 is a single rack appliance that comes in different flavours and offers firewall, virtual private network (VPN) capabilities, with Check Point providing the VPN and unified threat management (UTM). The IP290 is a multipurpose, half-sized rack-sized appliance offering Check Point's VPN technology and Sourcefire's intrusion prevention system (IPS) tools.

"These products are also able to protect remote office operations, which facilitates the central IT department to know that the connection for the remote branch is being protected and managed centrally," claimed David Dorosin, director for security and mobile connectivity at Nokia.
