iPolicy Expands High-End Integrated Security Product Line with Intrusion Prevention Firewall

Enhanced solution enables unprecedented levels of scalability for integrated security management

Washington, D.C., June 5, 2006 – iPolicy Networks today announced the iPolicy 6410 Intrusion Prevention Firewall (IPF) security appliance. With the addition of the new iPolicy 6410 model, the iPolicy 6400 IPF series offers carriers, enterprises, data centers, universities, and other large organizations a broader choice of integrated security solutions that further extends iPolicy’s leadership in scalability, performance, and management.

iPolicy’s security appliances combine firewall, intrusion detection and prevention, and content filtering functionality -- all within a single appliance -- providing a single point of control for swift response to security threats. iPolicy’s unique Single Pass Architecture performs a layer two-to-seven deep inspection of each packet only once, enabling organizations to enforce a wide variety of real-time security processes without impacting performance. This streamlined, in-depth inspection process makes the iPolicy 6410 well-suited to small packet, high-performance traffic such as VoIP, wireless, and video applications.

The latest product release leverages iPolicy’s experience at securing networks for the world’s largest carriers, delivering consistent security enforcement from a single management console across global networks while allowing departments or remote offices the flexibility to adapt to the specific needs of their environments.

“As the task of securing networks becomes increasingly complex, the technology to manage and adapt security for preventing the latest threats must become easier to deploy and manage,” said Arun Chandra, president, and CEO of iPolicy Networks. “Through highly scalable and flexible appliances like iPolicy Networks’ IPF 6410, we are delivering easy-to-manage, adaptive integrated security solutions that provide the highest level of network security without sacrificing performance.”

With iPolicy’s Intrusion Prevention Firewall 6410, network security managers can maintain the performance of their high-speed networks up to 1.2 gigabits per second and 1 million sessions, while mitigating DoS/DDoS attacks, blocking worms and Trojans, stopping blended threats and preventing undesirable content from entering the network – attacks that readily penetrate conventional firewalls. With this newest addition, the IPF 6400 product series now spans models with throughput of 1.2, 2.4 or 4 gigabits per second.

The iPolicy Intrusion Prevention Firewall 6410 is part of the iPolicy 6400 IPF series. Major highlights and benefits of the iPolicy 6410 include:

  • High performance to support high-speed VoIP, wireless, and video applications as well as high-volume data throughput. The expanded iPolicy 6400 series now supports 50,000 to 100,000 new sessions per second, 1 million concurrent sessions and 1.2 Gbps to 4 Gbps throughput

  • Highly scalable virtualization support for large enterprises, data centers, campus networks, and service providers. The iPolicy 6410 supports up to 100 Security Domains in a single system while the iPolicy 6420 / 6425 models can scale to 250 Security Domains. Each Security Domain provides virtualization for all the security functions (i.e., firewall, intrusion detection, intrusion prevention, and URL filtering)

  • Seamless field upgrade for enhanced performance and security. Customers can upgrade their iPolicy 6400 security appliance from 1.2 Gbps to 2.4 Gbps or 4 Gbps performance with a simple software-based license key. Similarly, customers can add firewall, intrusion prevention and detection, or URL filtering without requiring any hardware change

  • Scalable management for large networks across more than 500 geographically dispersed appliances, and advanced multi-security virtualization with over 100 simultaneous security administrators
