High-performance and optimal scalability: gateprotect presents new hardware from the GPZ series

Hamburg, 30 November 2012 - German IT security specialist gateprotect, http://www.gateprotect.com, now presents the IT security solutions from its GPZ model series with new hardware: The third generation of the next-generation firewalls GPZ 1000, GPZ 2500 and GPZ 5000 offer top performance and redundancy. A RAID system provides optimal data availability, even when individual hard drives fail. This ensures a high level of stability and reliability at all times, even with large data throughputs.

For the first time the new hardware of the GPZ series also offers a flexible designed front end. Replaceable network cards have been integrated, which can be freely configured according to customer wishes. All models have VLAN (Virtual Local Area Network) and Application Control to control and stop dangerous, unwanted applications from Web 2.0 in a targeted manner. The new next-generation firewalls from the GPZ series have been specially developed for the requirements of large company networks and particularly high-performance network environments with large user numbers. The clear, easy-to-operate network communication makes the firewall significantly easier to configure and manage, and ensures maximum protection with user-friendly application.

The new GPZ series is gateprotect's response to the ever increasing volume of network data traffic and the resulting growth in security requirements of large companies. "Company networks and data are today being threatened both internally and externally in a variety of different forms and via different channels. To guarantee problem-free business processes, a network must offer high availability at all times and be designed to offer the highest possible reliability", says Dr. Peter Smeets, CEO gateprotect AG Germany. "With the current GPZ series, we are offering a highly secure, user-friendly solution with redundant components for maximum security."

Strong performance and high reliability: overview of the GPZ series

GPZ 1000
The gateprotect GPZ 1000 appliance is designed for large networks with up to 1,000 users. The next-generation firewall includes all the latest features, such as VLAN, Single Sign On, Bridging, VPN SSL via x.509 certificates and VPN IPSec, IDS/ IPS, Traffic Shaping, Antivirus, Zero Hour Mail Protection, Web Filtering, Application Control, as well as the patented, easy-to-operate user interface with eGUI® technology. Based on hot-swap enabled hardware RAID with 24/7 server hard drive, redundant power supply and the high-performance HA mode, the appliance offers high reliability. The GPZ 1000 also features 4 SFP ports, for even faster fibre optic connections, for example.

GPZ 2500
For large networks with up to 10,000 users, the GPZ 2500 with 4 SFP ports and a firewall throughput of 10 gigabytes per second (Gbps) is the perfect solution. The easy-to-operate graphic user interface with eGUI® technology guarantees highly efficient management, which is supported extremely effectively by the monitoring and analysis functions of the gateprotect Command Center. Exceptionally high reliability is guaranteed at all times with Hardware RAID (hot-swap enabled) with 24/7 server hard drives, a redundant power supply and a powerful HA mode.

GPZ 5000
For complex company networks with the highest demands on throughput, flexibility and reliability, the GPZ 5000 is a reliable, easy-to-operate choice. The GPZ 5000 next-generation firewall feature 4 SFP ports and 2x 10 G SFP+. The 10 G ports provide an option for connecting the firewall directly to the backbone.

Feature highlights of the GPZ series
Version 9.2 with Application Control
While URL and content filters merely prevent or restrict access to unacceptable pages and content, Application Control enables a more fine-tuned approach and allows only specific parts of a service or website to be blocked. The system records the data traffic, evaluates it and analyses the data packages. An IT administrator can use this as a basis for creating a set of rules for the concrete network environment, which complies with the company policy and offers maximum protection from potential attacks. Recording all areas relevant to safety is only possible by combining URL and content filters with Application Control.
