Astaro Sec Gateway - Sophos UTM

 • 2012-07-17: Distribution Release: Sophos UTM 9
 • 2012-01-11: Distribution Release: Astaro Security Gateway 8.3
Astaro Security Gateway (formerly Astaro Security Linux) is an all-in-one network security gateway that includes a firewall, intrusion protection, antivirus, spam protection, URL filtering, and a VPN gateway. Features include a modern packet filter, intrusion detection and prevention, portscan detection, application control, content filtering, virus detection for email and Web traffic, profile handling, L2TP, IPSec, SSL, and PPTP VPN tunneling, spam blocking, proxies for HTTPS, HTTP, FTP, POP3, SMTP, DNS, VoIP, SOCKS, and Ident, logging, and reporting. It supports Ethernet, VLAN, PPP, PPPoE, PPPoA, Cable Modem, IPv6, QoS, Link Aggregation, and WAN-Uplink-Load balancing in routing, and bridge mode. The WebAdmin GUI, Install Wizard, Change Tracking, Printable Configuration, and Up2Date service make it easy to install, manage, and maintain.
Astaro RED – April 2: The Remote Ethernet Device (RED ) is looking to change how VPNs and remote connections are made. The quick and dirty explanation: A box with two Ethernet ports and a specific serial number is used to connect small-branch offices or even a single user with the entire ‘mothership’ data center, wherever it may be.
Astaro’s RED box  talks to a special central UTM gateway that is hosted in the cloud and managed by the partner or MSP. All the MSP has to do is alert the UTM to accept a new RED device and input the specific RED serial number. In theory, that’s super quick, clean, and transparent to the customer. Now, anything (device, server, appliance) and anyone connected to RED at the branch office (or home) can just jack in and act like they were on the main network. This potentially eliminates the problems of VPN tunning and IP address assigning. Price tag for the new gizmo? Just $295.
Email Archiving – May: This one’s simple. Flip a switch and all mail is archived to Amazon cloud. It allows also, for a hybrid solution on premise, too. And don’t worry, all backed-up data is encrypted and compressed as it goes away to Amazon’s cloud. But there’s more: using Astaro’s webclient or outlook plugin, you can browse the backed-up PST in real time.
New Wireless Security Solution – June 1: Astaro is looking to break out of the traditional use of consumer-grade devices for small WiFi solutions in the business marketplace.
Basically, Astaro’s software uses  their UTM gateways as wireless controllers. They offer an 802.11n smoke-detector sized access point. They show up the in the GUI of the gateway, so the administrator can configure the access points and how they function. You can also use them as repeaters or have multiple SSIDs to control traffic or tweak it to act seamlessly for easy roaming about the office.
All three of these products are still in beta, with Astaro partners already using and testing the software.
