Secure Computing Extends TSP Portfolio To Support Unified Threat Management

By | April 26, 2006

Secure Computing Corporation (NASDAQ: SCUR), the experts in securing connections between people, applications, and networks today announced major additions to the former CyberGuard TSP portfolio to support the company´s Unified Threat Management (UTM) offerings. These products include TSP Release 6.4, which integrates Webwasher(r) secure content management features along with enhancements to the TSP firewall and VPN capabilities.

Two new products were also added to the TSP product portfolio; the TSP 7300 for large enterprises and the new TSP 3450J for the medium-sized enterprise. In addition, the Company announced version 3.2 of the Global Command Center(tm), which provides centralized configuration, management and monitoring of very large secure IP networks. Secure Computing merged with CyberGuard Corporation on January 12, 2006.

The TSP Release 6.4 software brings award-winning Webwasher Web filtering, anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-phishing, content protection, SSL scanning and more to the Common Criteria EAL-4 certified TSP firewall/VPN software. TSP customers can enable individual Webwasher components by activating license keys. TSP Release 6.4 also adds iPv6, link aggregation, active/active high availability and multicast routing support to address the needs of large data center deployments for bandwidth efficiency, the seamless failover of security services and more flexible routing capabilities. Release 6.4 is available as an upgrade to most TSP customers.

“More and more large customers are looking for a way to integrate very high-end security capabilities into their networks,” said Gavin Adams, president of VIYU Network Solutions, a Secure Computing partner. “They like the simplicity of the all-in-one UTM security model, but they don´t want to pay a performance penalty or be overly burdened with administrative headaches. Secure Computing has taken those customer needs into consideration and integrated Webwasher-based UTM capability on the TSP line and the TSP7300 and offered Global Command Center. This shows Secure Computing´s dedication to giving customers the best technologically advanced solution to meet the evolving security landscape.”

Secure Computing also announced new hardware, introducing the TSP 7300 at the high-end of the TSP line. Based on dual-core AMD multiprocessing technology, the TSP 7300 is specially designed to run multiple security applications simultaneously at very high speeds. In addition, the TSP 7300 supports RAID, dual power supplies and redundant fans. At the midrange, the TSP3450J replaces the current 3400J with a RAID-capable platform.

“When Secure Computing and CyberGuard came together earlier this year, we made a commitment to our CyberGuard customers that we would protect their investment in CyberGuard technology,” said John McNulty, president, chairman and CEO of Secure Computing. “Today´s announcement clearly demonstrates that we are mindful of the evolving requirements of our CyberGuard customers and that we honor our commitments.”

Also announced today was Release 3.2 of the Global Command Center (GCC). The Global Command Center allows users to centrally configure, monitor and manage TSP, Classic, Webwasher and SnapGear products, as well as certain third party network elements. Release 3.2 adds a powerful VPN configuration wizard, Security Event Management and configuration domains, making it much easier for network administrators to deploy, monitor and manage large, secure networks.

TSP Release 6.4 is available for immediate shipment. The TSP 7300, the TSP 3450J and Global Command Center 3.2 will be available for shipment in Q2 2006.
