Bengaluru, India, October 15, 2014: Allied Telesis, a global provider of secure IP/Ethernet solutions and an industry leader in the deployment of IP Triple Play networks, today announced that it has selected the Network Application Visibility Library (NAVL) from Procera Networks for its new series of Next-Generation Firewalls. Packed with the latest threat protection functionality, and featuring Procera’s NAVL engine to provide granular traffic visibility, intelligence and control, the Allied Telesis Next-Generation Firewalls deliver a powerful, flexible, and highly configurable security solution.
As cyber threats continue to evolve and become more sophisticated, targeted and tailored attacks increasingly defeat traditional defenses. The problem now requires a solution with greater intelligence, control and insight. Allied Telesis has partnered its own specialized hardware with Procera’s NAVL software engine to create a high performance security platform with integrated application control, intrusion prevention, policy management and actionable reporting.
Allied Telesis is no stranger to information security. The company has developed security appliances for more than 20 years, and was one of the first vendors to deploy Virtual Private Network (VPN) functionality within its devices. The new firewalls are a revolution for the organization, and raise internal and external threat protection and network resource optimization to a whole new level to cope with the demands of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and the “Internet of Things.”
“Using Procera’s NAVL engine was an easy decision to make when we saw the power and flexibility it brought to our solution.” said Graham Walker, Senior Product Manager at Allied Telesis. “Application, content and user control are essential features of our Next-Generation Firewalls, but so are performance and manageability. Procera’s NAVL engine has allowed us to build Next-Generation Firewalls with the confidence that we have industry-leading technology that delivers up-to-the minute protection, superior visibility and comprehensive policy management.”
NAVL’s industry-leading traffic signature database is updated on a continual basis, allowing solution providers to keep their products current with today’s evolving network landscape – including malicious sites, security threats and potential sources of Internet abuse. NAVL is a next-generation Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) software engine that provides real-time, Layer-7 classification of network traffic.
According to Mr Seiichiro Sato, Director of Global Product Marketing, Allied Telesis, “We are seeing considerable demand from customers looking for an integrated solution across their networks from the edge to the core. Our Next-Generation Firewalls deliver greater visibility and control over the enterprise network and provide a simpler infrastructure to administer and manage.”
With an extensive array of features and functionality – including application-aware, high-throughput threat prevention, single pane of glass management, and integration with leading edge IP reputation and anti-malware services – the Allied Telesis Next-Generation Firewalls deliver a fiercely competitive solution to the market.
