X marks the spot: deploy your Firewall network protection here!!

New York, 22 October 2004, Trustix, the internet security specialists, today announced the release of the Xsentry series, their range of complete network security and productivity appliances. XsentryT boasts a combination of market-leading firewall and robust VPN connectivity, with a hardened OS on a purpose-built, high performance platform. Each Xsentry device can be upgraded via a license key- avoiding time consuming hardware replacements should a company's performance and capacity requirements grow.

Furthermore, XsentryT is fully extensible with a range of Trustix™ security applications, including powerful AntiSpam, Content Filtering, Intrusion Detection and Antivirus options- securing networks from internal and external threats alike. The customer simply chooses which level of security and performance their company needs - safe in the knowledge that future upgrades can be quickly and painlessly implemented.

Coming after the recent IDC report which predicted hardware appliances will dominate the security market by 2008, TrustixT have been keen to stress the advantages of 'security in a box'

Steve Roylance, TrustixT Vice President Technical Marketing commented:

"Appliances are fast gaining recognition as the simplest and, crucially, most effective way to secure your entire infrastructure. By consolidating multiple security applications onto a single, easy to manage box, we have removed many of the configuration headaches that multiple suite integrators face. Additionally, businesses will enjoy cost savings both in the short and long term lifetime of the solution - avoiding the high initial outlays and human resource costs of deploying and maintaining separate security products."

Trustix feel that although most organizations now protect their networks using a firewall, this is fast becoming an inadequate defense against modern hacking techniques.

"Increased sophistication on the part of hackers means viruses, Trojans and other threats are now concealed in legitimate traffic like downloaded files and emails- creating a real need for a layered security solution. Xsentry enables businesses to deploy a single, integrated defense against these threats without having to manage multiple security policies. Our system of upgrade license keys enables administrators to instantly unlock the additional features in the hardware as and when they are required. "
