FrontGate ESS has been three years in development and is the culmination of combining advanced security technology with a turn-key, managed service implementation. Working directly with FrontGateâs current financial services clients, ESS was designed based on their desire to have a single solution address all network communications services used by financial services firms including Market Data links, trading services, SFTI connections, ECN and exchange connectivity, and traditional Internet/Extranet connections.
"We are very excited about the release of FrontGate ESS", states Ron Holland, Managing Director of Sales and Marketing for the New York-based firm. "More and more firms are turning to outsourced security solutions due to the increasing costs and risks associated with implementing and supporting in-house solutions. Furthermore, companies have realized that generic "Internet"-style solutions typically used in the past are complex to maintain, vulnerable to security breaches due to their broad accessibility, and do not adequately address the unique and demanding characteristics of financial data traffic."
FrontGate ESS solutions are currently in production at a number of locations and are now available for immediate delivery to those companies in the financial services market. This limited distribution serves to ensure a higher level of security for FrontGate clients by keeping the FrontGate ESS technology within a defined market of professional firms that are mandated to provide for a secure environment.
