Security device for telecommuters and remote offices

ASIC-based Internet security systems and appliances developer NetScreen Technology has introduced its next-generation security platform combining firewall, virtual private network (VPN) and traffic management features for enterprise telecommuters and remote offices.

NetScreen-5XP offers wire-speed performance at 10Mbits per second.

The solution can be deployed to establish VPN connections to an enterprise's central site whilst also preventing so-called remote access 'U-turn attacks', where a hacker takes control of a remote PC and then uses the existing VPN connection to gain access to data stored at the enterprise's central site.

A NetScreen official said that, besides providing the highest level of ICSA-certified stateful inspection firewall and IPsec 3DES VPN encryption, the solution - which is available now - features traffic management that allows mission-critical data to be prioritised at remote sites to ensure applications get the bandwidth they need.
