Cyberoam Press Releases


CR1000ia and CR1500ia appliances can organically grow to deal with newly-evolving, future threats while providing high throughput performances for the most demanding enterprise networks

Ahmedabad, India. 1 February 2011

Cyberoam, a division of Elitecore Technologies, has announced new UTM offerings for the large enterprise segment with the launch of CR1000ia and CR1500ia “extensible security” appliances. Without compromising on bandwidth, the future-ready appliances deliver much higher levels of security from known and unknown threat agents including applications, users, content and more.

Says Mr. Abhilash Sonwane, VP-Product Management, Cyberoam, “Despite being feature-packed, most enterprise-class UTMs face performance limitations because the hard-coded architecture of the legacy appliance cannot cope with evolving security requirements which leads to hardware upgrade costs. In contrast, Cyberoam’s multicore-aware software architecture is not enmeshed with the appliance hardware, making it easily reprogrammable to deliver new patches and policies online to address fresh attacks. Also, Cyberoam’s extensible firmware can update with future security needs of an enterprise.”

Apart from the extensible security advantage, CR1000ia and CR1500ia have increased the UTM and VPN throughput values by nearly 50% over that of CR1000i and CR1500i, doubled storage memory to 160 Gb and reached firewall throughput up to 10 Gbps. The number of users supported vary between 1500 for CR1000ia to 2500 for CR1500ia.

These improvements in speed and throughput values meet large enterprise performance requirements for technology trends like cloud computing, Web 2.0, mobility etc. Basically, such high performance levels are sustained by Cyberoam through its enhanced multi-core aware architecture that ensures parallel execution of multiple network sessions. This enables the appliance to maintain a predictable degree of performance while dealing with unknown future threats, thereby providing higher levels of security.

Cyberoam’s UTM solutions offer a complete package of Security, Connectivity and Productivity (S-C-P) for enterprises which yields best-of-the-breed solutions over a single interface, resulting in a complete dependable shield. On top of it, the unique Layer 8 technology treats the user as the 8th layer in the network stack, featuring across all Cyberoam security modules to ensure complete visibility and control over user activity in the network. It also adds speed to the enterprise security set-up.
