Power, performance and flexibility for high-end data centers
The Stonesoft 5206 appliance is a versatile and modular Security Engine (NGN)-powered solution designed to meet the performance and scalability requirements of high-end data centers and large network central sites. It can be used in a Firewall/VPN role (Layer 3) for secure routing, NAT, and IPsec VPN gateway purposes. It can be used in an IPS role (Layer 2) in an IDS deployment or an Inline IPS deployment, or in a Layer 2 Firewall role. All of these roles are available with a single unified software image and adapt just by changing the configuration.
In the Firewall/VPN role, the Stonesoft 5206 appliance provides high performance with unique clustering capabilities for up to 16 nodes. This provides very high IPsec VPN speeds, as well as high-performance content and application inspection where needed.
In the IPS and Layer 2 Firewall roles, the Security Engine becomes transparent to surrounding network devices. The inline IPS and Layer 2 Firewall combine flexible deployment, AET-ready network security, and application control into one dedicated appliance.
The rock solid, future-proof platform
The Stonesoft 5206 is built on the platform of the Stonesoft Security Engine (NGN). It can transform its role as your organization grows and your needs change. A unified design, and the ability to make deployment changes remotely and automatically via license, helps to cut operating costs and eliminate unnecessary future capital investment rounds.
Configuring and administering the 5206 with the Stonesoft Management Center (SMC) provides additional resource and OPEX benefits. SMC gives you the ability to automate workflows, easily define policies across your entire infrastructure, swiftly define and deliver advanced visualizations, and have a continuously excellent level of situational awareness. This helps security administrators efficiently minimize the risk from cyber threats while empowering productivity.
