Astaro Security Linux
Astaro Security Linux is a comprehensive, integrated security application that includes sophisticated, but easy to use firewall functionality. The software is installed on any standard PC hardware, and is managed through a user-friendly point-and-click interface.
- Standard firewall capability (called stateful packet inspection), as well as advanced protection (proxies) which checks against certain hidden attacks disguised as normal traffic.
- Built-in support for secure, encrypted communication with remote employees or suppliers over the Internet through Virtual Private Networking (VPN).
- Detection of hacker probing of firewall protection (port scans).
- Protection against traffic designed to block your use of a certain capability, such as Internet access (denial of service attacks). Additionally, Astaro Security Linux includes a broad range of features designed to improve the performance of your Internet communication, including:
- Built-in support for filtering out productivity sapping unsolicited e-mail (spam), which has been measured to make up to 50% of e-mail volume.
- Web caching, which stores frequently accessed web pages locally, to reduce traffic volume and improve response times.
- Traffic prioritization, giving high-priority traffic preference, increasing response time.
Virus and Surf Protection:
Additional lines of defense firewalls are a vital element of security, but do not protect against all the threats presented by the internet. With the
introduction of firewalls into most organizations, hackers have become more sophisticated, hiding malicious code in legitimate traffic allowed by firewalls, such as e-mail. Additionally, firewalls do not protect against internal threats, such as the use of the internet to download harmful material. Astaro Security Linux is unique in offering options that protect against these additional threats, without having to purchase and administer separate products. By offering a single integrated product with a comprehensive range of security features, performance management functionality and a simple user interface, Astaro provides the ability for organizations to implement excellent security, while minimizing both up-front and operational costs.
