Untangle, a provider of cybersecurity solutions designed specifically for the below-enterprise market, for small-to-medium businesses (SMBs), has made available Pay-As-You-Go (PAYG) options in Amazon Web Services (AWS Cloud) for its NG Firewall software. NG Firewall in AWS would help organizations maintain a consistent security posture across dispersed locations while able to easily scale without being limited by hardware.
Untangle’s Firewall as a Service provides customers with integration to a cloud ecosystem that provides value-added services like centralized management, proactive alerting and threat intelligence.
Untangle’s NG Firewall inspects traffic bi-directionally, providing “advanced” malware detection powered by ScoutIQ threat intelligence, including intrusion prevention, web and application filtering. Comprehensive VPN options would work seamlessly with complete bandwidth shaping and optimization, and WAN balancing and failover for network redundancy “to ensure reliability and business continuity.”
Untangle NG Firewall is available via BYOL and PAYG on AWS.
“Untangle continues to provide innovative solutions to complex security challenges that can be deployed by customers and partners without the need for deep cybersecurity expertise, enabling them to take advantage of macro trends in the industry like cloud computing,” said Scott Devens, chief executive officer (CEO) of Untangle. “We are extending our commitment to our customers and partners to provide cutting-edge solutions that are easy to deploy and manage by introducing this new offering for AWS.”
NG Firewall offers single pane visibility for policy management, visualizing dispersed networks, templates, alerts, reporting, auditing, and threat intelligence. Untangle NG Firewall in public clouds offers granular visibility into and control over all network traffic within VPC and between remote locations with custom-configurable, onboard reporting and widgetized, 360-degree dashboards.
Untangle’s network security solutions are used by over 40,000 customers around the world. The company is headquartered in San Jose, California.
