Arkoon and Netasq Launch New Generation of IT Network Protection Solutions

Arkoon and Netasq, subsidiaries of Airbus Defence and Space and key players in the cybersecurity market, have launched a new generation of network protection solutions. Called Stormshield Network Security, this new line of products complements the Stormshield Endpoint Security (workstation protection, even from unknown 0-day threats) and Stormshield Data Security (data protection) product ranges, thus providing end-to-end security to organizations targeted by cyber threats.

François Lavaste, CEO of Arkoon and Netasq, said: “Our engineers combined their efforts to develop a unique range of even more innovative trusted solutions with even better performance. The technology we have adopted for our multifunctional products enables organisations to optimize their level of protection by blocking cyber-attacks, regardless of their complexity.”

Stormshield Network Security comprises a range of nine appliances that cover the entire spectrum of organizational requirements: from the protection of information systems from internal and external threats to the control of access and use of workstations, while enabling real-time visibility over network activity. Stormshield Network Security also takes into account new cloud computing and mobility needs in its virtual version.

Stormshield Network Security solutions use for the very first time the innovative Multi-layer Collaborative Security technology which facilitates an active collaboration between the security engines on appliances. This holistic approach allows adapting the level of protection on workstations and servers according to vulnerabilities identified or security alarms raised.

The modularity of the products in the Stormshield Network Security range means that they can be integrated into any existing infrastructure and adapt to future changes in the network. Thanks to an intuitive graphical interface, network administrators can implement the solutions with minimal effort and users are guaranteed seamless security. Stormshield Network Security solutions additionally include comprehensive reporting and analysis tools that are embedded directly. These 100% interactive tools make it easier to remedy problems: the security policy or level of protection can be adapted immediately simply by clicking on a security event or an element in a report.

Note to Editors
With up to 58 gigabit Ethernet ports or 28 10 gigabit fibre ports, Stormshield Network Security solutions provide an unparalleled level of scalability and port density in the market for multifunction firewall appliances. Thanks to this modularity, these solutions can be integrated into even the most complex IPv4 or IPv6 architectures.

Supporting firewall speeds of over 80 Gbps, Stormshield Network Security products enable thorough control over access to the information system and external applications based on user identity or profile.

Stormshield Network Security products make it easier to interconnect remote sites via IPSec VPN or set up mobile access to internal IT resources via SSL VPN (through a simple Web browser or a lightweight agent available on Windows, Android or iOS).

Thanks to their unique intrusion prevention technology and proven security engines, these solutions provide unified protection against the most advanced threats, from anti-malware analysis (with a signature database and sandboxing technology) to spam detection, SSL inspection, URL filtering, Web 2.0 code and script inspection, and vulnerability detection.

Stormshield Network Security also introduces a new function: Microsoft Services Firewall. This new function makes it possible to carefully manage the use of Windows services by user or resource (active directory backup and restoration, IIS services, Microsoft Messenger, etc.). It also allows blocking malware and security evasion techniques that exploit vulnerabilities in these services.
