Security solution provider Cyberoam has released a firmware update for its security appliances, to enhance performance and add new features.

The update, CyberoamOS 10.6.2, is designed for the company's unified threat management and next generation firewall solutions, and will increase firewall throughput by up to 430%, IPS throughput by 210%, and UTM throughput by 190%.

New features include User Threat Quotient (UTQ), which provides reports on ‘risky' users based on web traffic and patterns of user behavior; and Application Visibility and Control for Micro Apps, which provides deep-scanning for HTTPS based applications, allowing granular control over various micro-apps within the larger app ecosystems such as Facebook, Google and the like.

Other key features include Radius Single-Sign-On (RSSO), IPv6 Traffic Load-balancing support in HA, Secure SMTP and availability of Discover Mode (popularly called TAP mode) that makes PoC evaluation of Cyberoam security appliances simpler, easier and faster.

The new firmware is intended to improve performance of appliances, to prevent security from becoming a bottleneck on the network.

Abhilash Sonwane, SVP - Products & Technology, Cyberoam: "We moved many notches up in offering high-performance security at the time of launching our NG Series security appliances. With CyberoamOS 10.6.2, we have touched even higher scales by further leveraging the fast path technology over Cyberoam's multi-core platform. Our new performance breakthroughs will help Cyberoam customers boost network security performance without changing their existing hardware."
