Ahmedabad, India 18 November, 2008
Cyberoam, a division of Elitecore Technologies, and a leading provider of Identity-based Unified Threat Management appliances, today announced new appliance features that deliver enhanced identity-based security, meet the requirements of global customers in addition to providing high appliance reliability.
Cyberoam’s new features include User-MAC binding that binds a user to a computer, preventing unauthorized network access by abusing someone else’s network rights; Chinese and Hindi language GUI for improving user experience globally; Threat Free Tunneling (TFT) technology for safe and clean traffic over the VPN; among others.
Elaborating on the importance of User-MAC binding, Abhilash Sonwane, VP – Product Management, Cyberoam, says, “Cyberoam is the only security solution that can bind the computer’s MAC address directly to identity, supporting organizations that need to bind a user to a physical machine. This delivers greater network security and data confidentiality. It particularly enables educational institutions and enterprises with wi-fi networks to prevent users from impersonating others and covering up their footprints by changing their IP addresses.”
Cyberoam has added multi-lingual support with its GUI now available in Chinese and Hindi languages to facilitate its rapid expansion into global markets. This has allowed it to improve user experience in two of the largest and fastest growing markets in the world. This development would also enable Cyberoam to provide support for more such languages in the coming versions.
The need for remote network access or VPN solution is rapidly increasing in enterprises as more employees are doing business on the move. Organizations need a secure, threat-free remote access tunnel as important business information gets exchanged over the VPN.
“Cyberoam’s Threat Free Tunneling (TFT) technology scans all VPN traffic for malware intrusions, spam and content,” says Sonwane. The TFT technology allows enterprises to set identity-based policies for VPN Internet browsing and can restrict VPN access to specific networks, IP address, services and users.
Cyberoam’s Active-Active High Availability solution provides efficient, continuous access to critical applications, information, and services in organizations by minimizing single point of failure. This feature allows organizations to increase their overall network uptime and performance through load balancing and failover in case of hardware failure.
