London, UK â April 5th, 2006: In todayâs digitalised world there are many new kinds of risks related to the security and availability of information. The convergence of data, voice, and video traffic to single networks has led to an increase in the amount of traffic on those IP networks, the criticality of that traffic, and the complexity of the networks themselves.
Stonesoftâs new StoneGate Security Platform enables distributed enterprises, multi-site businesses, and other organisations to dramatically lower the risks and costs of doing business in a digitalised world.
"Converged services like Voice over IP require a new approach for business-critical connectivity. This means that we need to provide confidentiality, ensure availability, and optimise resources," said Ilkka Hiidenheimo, CEO and founder of Stonesoft Corp.
The new StoneGate Security Platform secures confidentiality of converged services and ensures the highest level of resilience for the communication. This is achieved through combining Quality of Service (QoS), bandwidth management, and Multi-Link Technology and clustering. As a result, traffic labeling and prioritisation, reservation of bandwidth, and utilisation of the best performing links, and resilient infrastructure together ensure continuous availability of business critical services.
