Avaya is looking to increase security on converged communications networks with the introduction of five new gateways. The vendor also claims the Security Gateways will be easy to deploy and will optimise IP protection across a range of environments, including branch offices, contact centres, telecommuters and other remote sites.

Each of the gateways incorporates virtual private network (VPN) functionality, firewall coverage and IP telephony support. Furthermore, the gateways offer users a centralised platform from which to manage the communications security infrastructure.

“Avaya’s new security gateways address a core enterprise networking issue — helping enterprises secure their internal and external online transactions and communications,” says Serjios El-Hage, director, government solutions, Middle East, North Africa and South East Europe, Avaya.

“The power of IP-enabled systems and applications cannot be fully realised without assuring that workplace communications are consistently secure and the risk of compromise is low,” he adds.

The range has also been designed to cater to the requirements of particular enterprises, as such, the SG203 and SG208 models are targeted towards medium-to-large sized businesses, which support multiple locations. The SG5 and SGX5 gateways are designed for telecommuters, mobile workers and small remote offices or home offices and, finally, the SG200 is primed for small-to-medium sized enterprises or branch offices.
