Cyberoam brings enterprise network security to Kiwi SMEs

04 Jun 15

Cyberoam, the network security appliance provider, has launched CR10wiNG in the New Zealand market.

CR10wiNG is a unified threat management (UTM) appliance with built-in Wi-Fi capabilities for the SOHO/ROBO markets.

The wireless appliance supports 802.11 n/b/g standards and up to eight virtual access points.

It delivers UTM security features over WLAN to offer enterprise-level security and meet the requirement of mobility in this segment.

Cyberoam CR10wiNG offers high performance with firewall throughput of 400Mbps and UTM throughput of 60Mbps.

The appliance will be available in New Zealand through SnapperNet, Cyberoam’s distributor in this region.

Richard Paul, SnapperNet managing director, says the product is perfect for small businesses, home offices and remote/branch offices.

“Cyberoam’s CR10wiNG is at a price point now that people looking for more secure offerings for their small offices will be able to afford,” he says.

Andrew McHenry, Cyberoam channel manager New Zealand and Australia, says, “CR10wiNG offers secure Wi-Fi at par with wired security. It enables a leaner Wi-Fi security infrastructure to organisations by replacing both Wi-Fi router and firewall with a single appliance.

“For remote offices with limited connectivity options, CR10wiNG also offers 3G/4G USB support."

Cyberoam says the wireless networks in organisations face huge risk of information theft due to their inability to trace users, especially guest users, within the network.

Additionally, lack of IT security staff and budgetary constraints make it difficult for the SOHO/ROBO segment to find security solutions that are adequate, cost-effective and easy to manage, says Cyberoam.

Furthermore, these organisations often demand mobility within the network and need network security, secure remote access, or secure Wi-Fi for walk-in customers.

CR10wiNG is based on Cyberoam’s patented Layer 8 technology and allows administrators to apply user identity-based security policies to gain visibility over user activity and also manage guest internet access in the network.

The appliance supports multiple virtual access points that create independent, segregated networks in the same physical area for separate teams like sales, marketing, guest users, and more.

This offers secure authentication and prevents rogue clients from connecting to networks where they don’t belong, says Cyberoam.

CR10wiNG is built on the same CyberoamOS that powers other high-end NG series UTM appliances.

It is centrally manageable via Cyberoam Central Console (CCC) and Cyberoam’s on-Cloud Management Service and is compatible with iView - Cyberoam’s Open Source logging and reporting solution.
