Intoto India Creates Integrated UTM for Network Security OEMs

Intoto India R&D teams in Hyderabad and Chennai has jointly developed the next generation Unified Threat Management solution iGateway EX UTM which integrates key technologies critical for networking OEMs building enterprise-class Unified Threat Management solution for Network Security delivering comprehensive, integrated security in single platform. The iGateway EX UTM solution supports new and advanced hardware architectures and products including multicore processors as well as content inspection accelerators. The iGateway UTM platform also includes ICSA Labs certified Firewall and VPN functions.

Intoto’s UTM technologies include IntruPro Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), new network-based anti-virus and anti-spam technology, VPN, Firewall, and the latest Secured Socket Layer (SSL)-VPN application. Intoto’s gateway anti-virus and anti-spam technology is an open and flexible solution, allowing for the support of 3rd party scan engines and signature databases. The platform has pre-integrated support for industry leading antivirus from Kasperky Lab and anti-spam from Commtouch. The UTM solution also incorporates networking technologies such as Load Balancing, Fail-Over, QoS/Traffic Management and Virtualization.

IDC predicts that, by 2009, UTM will become the single largest market segment within network security – growing to $2.4 billion and surpassing even firewall appliances. Intoto provides a significant incentive to OEMs looking to capture a share of this market by delivering a software platform that allows them to rapidly develop and deliver new products with comprehensive, integrated security features. According to leading analysts, internal threats are cause for serious concern. They can lead to loss of confidential information or may consist of harmful activity involving threat transmission.

“With the UTM segment poised for explosive growth, OEMs are racing to deliver products that tap into this exciting opportunity,” noted Doug Makishima, vice president of marketing at Intoto. “Yet by its very nature, the UTM concept raises the challenge of combining a broad range of highly complex security technologies and next-generation Integrated Circuit (IC) solutions into a single, integrated package. Intoto and its research team in India have yet again met this challenge for its OEM customers, further fueling industry growth by delivering a comprehensive UTM software platform that allows OEMs to quickly and cost-effectively drive new appliances to market.”

“Enterprises are facing a rise in the sophistication and frequency of network security threats, driving a need for more comprehensive and complex security solutions,” stated Charles Kolodgy, research director of security products at IDC. “This in turn is driving demand for robust security appliances that integrate a number of threat management and secure content management functions in a unified platform. Intoto’s iGateway UTM platform gives OEMs the ability to quickly develop and deliver feature rich, integrated security solutions that address critical network security needs of today’s enterprises.”
