CyberGuard Corporation has unveiled a new all-in-one wireless workgroup security and data access appliance, the CyberGuard SG565, designed specifically to secure the wireless and wired LANS of small and medium-sized enterprises. CyberGuard claims this appliance combats blended threats by combining firewall, intrusion prevention and gateway anti-virus functionality, and then enabling these capabilities over wired fast ethernet and Wi-Fi WLAN networks. This in turn means that small offices can implement secure file and print services by attaching off-the-shelf USB disk drives and printers, without then worrying about possible security breaches. “The CyberGuard SG565 is a cost-effective and comprehensive security appliance that enables any remote office network to safely become part of a trusted central network – in effect, creating a secure instant office network,” explained Bashar Bashaireh, regional manager Middle East and North Africa, CyberGuard. “As small and medium-sized businesses are faced with a challenge to protect the business-critical data they always look for a cost-effective solution that will allow them to achieve their goals within their limited budgets. The appliance has been designed to deliver these strong benefits,” he added. The CyberGuard SG565 includes five fast ethernet ports - which can be configured as separate security zones - as well as a Wi-Fi 802.11g access point for mobile notebook PCs, industry-standard secure VPN access with hardware-accelerated encryption, link load-balancing for ISP fail-over and internet bandwidth acceleration.
