LinuxPR: Progressive Systems Integrates Its Phoenix Adaptive Firewall Onto Cobalt Network’s RaQ3i…

“Progressive Systems, Inc., a leading provider of network
security solutions, today announced it has implemented its Phoenix
Adaptive Firewall onto Cobalt Network’s (NASDAQ:
COBT) RaQ3i platform. Designed for the many small and medium sized
businesses (SMBs) that are implementing full-time Internet access
but have growing security concerns, the new firewall appliance can
be quickly installed and configured to provide very effective
protection that is transparent to the network. This new
implementation joins Progressive’s existing firewall appliance
based on the Cobalt Qube and Cobalt
RaQ server appliances.”

“Based on the highly successful Cobalt server appliance
platform, this new version of the Phoenix Adaptive Firewall system
features increased processor power, making it better suited for
implementing Virtual Private Networks (VPNs).
The unit comes
standard with a DMZ port for a secured public subnet and features
greater expandability than is normally found in the firewall
appliance market. The fully featured product will sell for $4495
for unlimited users and will be on display at TheLinuxStore.com
booth during Comdex Spring in Chicago, April 17 – 20, 2000. It will
be available shortly after the show directly from Progressive
Systems or from any of its distribution and reseller partners.”

“With Progressive Systems’ adaptive state analysis firewall
engine and built-in, anti-attack features, the Phoenix appliances
provide an extremely stable, secure firewall and VPN solution.
Since the software payload of the Phoenix is fully integrated
within the appliance hardware, it is one of the easiest and fastest
security solutions to install into virtually any network
environment, even for someone with little or no previous firewall
experience. Because of its attractive price point, the Phoenix
offers businesses of all sizes a cost-effective security solution –
from the headquarters, branch offices and intranets/subnets of
large corporations to the networks and web servers of small and
medium-sized companies.”
