SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- NETGEAR ® (NASDAQGM: NTGR) ( www.netgear.com), a global networking company that delivers innovative products to consumers, businesses and service providers, today introduced the NETGEAR ProSecure® UTM25S Unified Threat Management Firewall. As the newest addition to the NETGEAR UTM S series of firewalls, the ProSecure UTM25S provides two modular slots that fit optional interface cards, enabling IT administrators to custom-tailor the firewall to their specific connectivity requirements. In addition, like other members of the ProSecure UTM family of security appliances, the UTM25S integrates with NETGEAR ReadyNAS® network-attached storage systems, giving businesses almost unlimited activity log and quarantine capacity for forensic, regulatory and legal requirements. As the second entry in the NETGEAR ProSecure UTM S product line, the UTM25S — like its predecessor, the UTM9S, the best-selling appliance in the ProSecure line — delivers comprehensive Internet security as well as high-speed Internet access through a choice of WAN connections-built-in Ethernet ports, an optional VDSL modem module, or a qualified 3G USB dongle. It also offers a wireless-N access point module and is a best-in-class UTM firewall gateway recommended to support up to 25 users. Targeted at small and medium businesses and remote/branch offices looking to make the move from a standard firewall to a UTM application firewall solution, the ProSecure UTM25S significantly extends the security of a network without the normally associated vendor complexity or costs. "The ProSecure UTM25S is a huge asset to our clients in terms of deployment, maintenance and securing their interests from the wide range of malware scams inundating the Web today," said Eric Gorman, owner of Integrated Enterprise Solutions, Inc. an Information Technology services company based in New York. "We are extremely pleased at the protection it gives our clients against these advanced attacks, while offering extensive management capabilities and an affordable price point that fits within our clients' budget." In general, traditional all-in-one solutions claiming to provide enterprise-grade security protection have incorporated batch-based methods to scan incoming high-latency data, which can slow Web browsing to a crawl. To address this, many of these solutions attempted to overcome this challenge by scanning only a select few malware file types, or by avoiding Web scanning altogether, which opened up networks to malware-based attacks. NETGEAR ProSecure UTM S solutions address this issue with the patented Stream Scanning platform, which analyzes data streams as they enter the network.
