Gateway security provider Secure Computing has upgraded its firewall offering Sidewinder in the region.

The updated version of the firewall is integrated with technology from TrustedSource, which provides reputation scores for internet protocols (IPs), domains and URLs. This allows organisations to drop connections from malicious sources in order to prevent security threats such as spam and phishing, reclaim bandwidth and reduce downstream server processing.

Other enhancements to Sidewinder 7.0 include fast application layer security performance, next generation hardware platforms, best-in-class unified policy management and advancements in voice over IP (VoIP) security.

The Sidewinder 7.0 will be available in the Middle East from March.

Enterprises use Sidewinder to manage access to their networks and protect internet-facing applications, as well as to monitor and manage employee use of the internet, identify hidden attacks in packet streams and block viruses in file transfers.
