ADTRAN has launched NG Firewall Powered by Untangle, the latest addition to its ProCloud Subscription Services Suite.
NG Firewall delivers content filtering, ransomware, malware and threat protection, application based shaping for bandwidth optimization, virtual private networks (VPN) and more. NG Firewall’s cloud-based architecture allows for a customizable alerting structure as well.
NG Firewall complements the suite’s existing ProCloud Security solutions, which also work together with ProCloud Unified Communications and Network Management solutions. All are designed for deliverability through managed service providers (MSPs).
“Enabling MSPs to streamline new services, without impacting small and medium businesses’ (SMBs) already limited IT resources, is a key advantage of the MSP service model and is a significant driver of this segment’s growth,” said Nolan Greene, senior research analyst for network infrastructure at IDC. “By providing the means for their clients to easily add unified threat management (UTM) and next generation firewall services, ADTRAN enables its MSP customers to easily address the key security concerns facing companies in today’s globally connected marketplace.”
“Through our collaboration with Untangle, we now have a powerful, flexible, industry-leading network security solution built on an unparalleled reputation,” said Meggin Sawyer, vice president of business solutions and cloud services at ADTRAN. “Our continued focus on next-generation cloud applications seamlessly ties into ADTRAN’s leadership in expanding broadband connectivity, creating more opportunity for businesses of all sizes to fully capitalize on their network potential while striving for exponential growth.”
