Celestix updates MSA security appliances

To integrate with Microsoft’s 64-bit TMG software and Windows Server 2008 operating system

By CBR Staff Writer

Celestix Networks has released their MSA series security appliances with Microsoft’s new Forefront Threat Management Gateway 2010 (TMG) and with refreshes of Celestix’ appliance hardware platforms and appliance engine software.

The company said that it has reengineered the MSA series security appliances to integrate with Microsoft’s 64-bit TMG software and Windows Server 2008 operating system. TMG supports deployment scenarios for application-layer firewall, proxy and caching. In addition, the new features of TMG include built-in URL filtering, web anti-virus/anti-malware support, HTTPS inspection capabilities and vulnerability-based intrusion detection/prevention.

According to Celestix, the new MSA appliances also introduce the company’s Comet appliance engine software, which uses 64-bit architecture to provide datacentre-ready features such as a web user interface (for headless operation), integrated save/restore of last good version (for disaster recovery), and a rebuilt software update engine to provide a comprehensive view of patching.

The company claims that it reengineered their new 6th-generation hardware platforms to maximise the performance of Microsoft’s 64-bit Windows 2008 OS and TMG 2010 with added processing power and memory.

Neil Matz, vice president of product management at Celestix, said: “We’ve taken the years of experience and expertise invested in Microsoft security and streamlined each individual component in our new MSA appliances. The new features that Microsoft Forefront Threat Management Gateway 2010 provides (such as URL filtering and anti-malware) gave us the perfect product with which to showcase our new platforms.”
