Untangle Releases zSeries Appliances and NG Firewall V. 14.2

Untangle has released its zSeries appliances, expanding its network security framework while offering better performance and functionality at a lower price point.

The zSeries includes five new appliances, ranging from small desktop models to 1U rackmount servers, plus a wireless option. Untangle appliances are preloaded with NG Firewall, Untangle’s award-winning network security software product, making deployment easy and seamless. With zero touch provisioning via Command Center, MSPs and customers with remote locations can easily configure the zSeries without the need for physical access to the appliance.

NG Firewall 14.2 includes significant enhancements to web security and content filtering, the ability to synchronize users with Azure Active Directory, and enhancements to intrusion detection and prevention.

Web security and content filtering enhancements include flagging, blocking and alerting based on search terms for Google, YouTube, Yahoo, Bing, and Ask; safe search for YouTube; and enhanced malware detection. These capabilities enable network administrators in content-sensitive environments such as schools, libraries or social services to meet compliance requirements while safeguarding users.
