Due to the growing complexity and increasing number of tasks there is a growing demand for integrating the many tools into single products Vendors had first started with integrating firewall and VPN gateway functions into a single product Since 2003 UTM (Unified Threat Management) appliances evolved, which additionaly incorporated Intrusion Detection/prevention plus Antivirus functions as part of a single centralized gateway. Since then UTM vendors added more and more functions to their products and created new marketing buzzwords like UTM+ Currently the successor of UTM is evalving, called XTM (eXtensible Threat Management) XTM-Platforms are more advanced then UTM in terms of: flexible extensibility with new features and additional performance Simple centralized management Comprehensive enterprise-class functionality (e.g. clustering etc…) Astaro’s solutions are always ahead of the competition in terms of completeness and depth of integrated features (see also features listed on top of grey shaded areas)
However Integrating many tools into a single paltform only provides limited benefit if not all tools are integrated into a unified management system at the same time. However this is not the case with many of today‘s „integrated“ solutions where the aggregated tools have no knowledge of each other and administrators often have to use many different manegement tools and GUIs in order to manage the compelte product
Explain deployment options 3 deployment options, same great product. Astaro Security Gateway is available as a software appliance, hardware appliance, and virtual appliance in order to meet any deployment scenario. Software appliance Since the operating system and all featured applications are bundled within a single ISO image, Astaro Security Gateway software appliances are much easier and faster to install than software applications that require a separate, pre-installed operating system. By supporting a broad range of Intel-compatible server systems, software appliances allow for maximum deployment flexibility on your hardware of choice. The Astaro Security Gateway software appliance is available on CD with a printed manual or can be downloaded directly from Astaro servers and independently burned onto a CD. There is no need for client based software installation. Specific licensing packages are available, varying by the number of users/IP addresses. Hardware appliance Astaro Security Gateway hardware appliances are based on high quality Intel-compatible server systems with each model offering an identical feature set. Small businesses do not have to surrender important security features due to scaled-down hardware performance. All models offer an integrated hard disk drive in order to locally store quarantined emails and log data, avoiding the need for additional servers. Astaro Security Gateway hardware appliances can be easily deployed at the perimeter of your network to protect all email, web and network user traffic. Since all hardware appliances feature a pre-installed operating system and software, the initial setup will be fast and without complication. There is no further need for client based software installation. With a complete range of models available, ASG hardware appliances effectively protect networks from 10 to more than 2000 users. Virtual appliance Astaro Security Gateway virtual appliances allow for easy deployment in large and complex environments. Optimized hardware allocation and reduced hardware expenditure is available since physical computers are able to run multiple instances of the software in parallel by using the underlying VMware virtualization infrastructure. As a result, it is ideally suited for managed security services and those responsible for the consolidation of several departmental networks. The Astaro Security Gateway virtual appliance can be downloaded from Astaro servers and burned independently onto a CD. It can then be installed on any system running either a VMware player, VMware workstation, VMware server or VMware ESX server. Specific licensing packages are available, varying by the number of users/IP addresses. Astaro is one of the few security vendors offering a virtual appliance and we have been partners with VMware for over 5 years.
Only Astaro appliances are available in three different types: as hardware, a software, and a virtual appliance.Integration into existing infrastructures has never been easier. Nobody's faster: With Astaro’s “10-Minute Setup” each installation is completed easily. Nobody's more flexible: Astaro “One-Click Clustering” technology enables scalable performance and system stability with up to ten cluster nodes. Over 47,000 customers are already protecting their internet communications with an Astaro appliance.
Introduce the audience to the Astaro Security Gateway Interface So, this is the main management console you use in the Astaro Security Gateway. When you first login to the unit you are greeted with a dashboard view displaying the status of your Astaro Security Gateway and network. As you can see the Astaro Security Gateway is a comprehensive perimeter security solution that offers the latest in: Network Security - Firewall, VPN and Intrusion Prevention Web Security - URL Filtering, Malware Detection, Bandwidth Management and Application Control Mail Security - Antispam, Antivirus, Antiphishing and Email Encryption The interface has been designed to ensure that the administrator has the best possible user experience. Astaro has incorporated AJAX technology into its interface allowing for drag and drop features and what we feel is the industries most user friendly management console.
Antispam - Unmatched recognition rate through reputation-based filtering With the patented reputation-based filtering techniques, we now detect and reject up to 90% of all spam emails prior even receiving the body of the email. This reduces the load on the box, the network traffic transferred and also the amount of emails in the quarantine you need to manage. This concept works also for Image, PDF, MP3, Flash or foreign language spam, as we do not rely on understanding the content of the email. In order to detect the last appr. 10% of the spam messages, we complement this approach with an patented reputation- and fingerprint based filtering technology, an &quot;Advanced Greylisting Filter&quot;, which is now needed as most spam senders are now able to bypass standard greylisting filters. With this, Astaro has the one of the highest spam detection rates and a feature richness to surpass nearly every dedicated mail filtering solution out there, even in the enterprise as all these settings can also be configured within profiles on a per domain basis, and the integrated clustering technology, scales nearly linear over multiple appliances which act as one single solution. Antivirus - Dual virus scanners block harmfull malware in SMTP and POP3 With two indipendent virus scanners that receive indipendent pattern and engine updated, Astaro offers a maximum protection against malware distributed via email messages. This is not only true for SMTP but also covers POP3 emails sent through the Mail Gateway. Email Encryption - Transparently secure and sign email communication - clientless The only secure way to sent email across the internet is to encrypt them. With S/MIME and OpenPGP support, AMG offers a standardized way to communicate securely. Unlike other solutions however, Astaro doesn’t require complex enrollments of PKIs or even involving the end-user into the process of managing certificates, encrypting, decrypting and signing messages. All of this is done automatically at the gateway without any need for client software or interaction. Remote Exchange Access - Let mobile users easily access their exchange mailbox with their customary Outlook client via a secure SSL-VPN connection Beside the secure transfer of email messages the save access to the corporate mailbox on internal servers is especially for SMEs a challenge. Astaro Mail Gateway offers easy to configure SSL-VPN access not only to MS Exchange but also to Lotus Notes and Novell Groupwise.
The WebAdmin allows easy configuration and monitoring of all email related security tasks out of one powerfull browser-based graphical user interface. Astaro WebAdmin shares common administration concepts throughout the whole Astaro product family, efficiently limiting the training efforts between Astaro products to a minimum.
Localized in 15 languages, Astaro UserPortal presents many options for end-users to track and monitor messages which have been processed by the Astaro Mail Gateway. It not only offers the possibility to easily manage quarantined emails but also allows users to gain a quick overview on their complete email traffic. Also, the UserPortal offers features to manage personal email whitelists and administer POP3 accounts. The Picture shows the common share in e-mail traffic on an Astaro appliance: Most spam is rejected, some are qurarntined and only a few delivered.
personalized email log: Each user can see the status of all sent and received emails, weather they have been delivered, rejected by the spam quarantine or contained a virus.
