IronPort expands web security hardware portfolio

Introduces new S160 platform for SMB market and hardware upgrades for existing models

IronPort has expanded its S-Series of web security applicances that offer protection against malware.

With its most advanced model capable of supporting up to 30,000 end-users, all the hardware platforms feature multiple processors with IronPort AsyncOS that include web filters and multiple anti-malware scanning engines.

“According to a recent industry report, less than 30 percent of enterprise networks employ dedicated secure Web gateways. As a result, we believe there will be a tremendous demand for Web security appliances as Internet traffic grows and malware threats increase,” said Tom Gillis, vice president of marketing at Cisco.

As part of the expansion, the company has introduced hardware upgrades for the IronPort S660, designed for large enterprise data centers that can support up to 30,000 users from a single box, and the IronPort S360 for medium-sized companies that have up to 10,000 end users.

Additionally, the IronPort S160 has also been launched for the SMB market to address growing demand for web security solutions. The appliance is small in size (it takes up a single rack unit) but offers the same level of security and performance.

“With the ability to serve more end-users with a single device, these products also help enterprises reduce power and space requirements,” Gillis added.
