Symantec expands firewall products


CUPERTINO, Calif.-Symantec Corp. announced it is expanding its family of secure firewall applications with the Symantec Gateway Security 300 Series, including the 320, 360 and 360R.

The 300 series of solutions, which were designed for small businesses, provides firewall, intrusion prevention, intrusion detection, anti-virus policy enforcement, content filtering and virtual private networking functionality. The solution can also function as a secure wireless LAN access point.

“Small businesses need secure, reliable Internet access and often do not have the on-site technical resources to manage a complex system,” said Greg Gotta, vice president of gateway and network security at Symantec. “With its all-in-one functionality, Symantec Gateway Security 300 Series can be easily installed to create a high-speed local area network that enables secure access and interaction via the Internet with remote locations, business partners and corporate networks far better than a firewall only device.”

The Symantec Gateway Security 300 Series is scheduled to be available this month.
