Internet Security Systems Inc has rolled out another of its all-in-one security gateway appliances in the shape of the Proventia-branded M50 intrusion-detection and prevention system.
The box is to be targeted at small to medium-sized companies that do not have the financial or human resources to deploy separately configured servers for intrusion-detection, firewall, virtual private networking tasks. ISS is pushing its new range of Proventia appliances as a way for companies to reduce their up-front security costs by variously combining firewall/VPN, IDS, intrusion prevention, spam and virus blocking, and content filtering in a single box.
Proventia M50 ties firewall, VPN, anti-virus and intrusion-detection and prevention into a single protection engine that examines network traffic once for all threats. The company also said all these activities can all be managed from under one management system.
Last month, the Atlanta, Georgia-based vendor launched its 200Mbps G200 appliance.
