Hamburg, 03. March 2015 – gateprotect GmbH, the German IT security specialist and member of the Rohde & Schwarz Group, will present its Unified Threat Management solutions and high-performing Next Generation Enterprise Firewalls, which are developed and tested in Germany, at the CeBIT 2015 at the Hannover Fair, hall 6, booth B16, 16 – 20 March. The gateprotect Next Generation Firewalls offer stable protection for company networks and reduce the risk of human errors. To make IT systems and digital infrastructure in Germany the safest worldwide, the German Federal government has expedited a draft bill on the enhancement of security of IT systems (IT Security Act). According to this draft bill, operators of critical infrastructure such as energy generation equipment will be obliged to maintain a minimum standard of IT security, and report severe IT security incidents to the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) in the future.gateprotect’s Network Protector firewalls – made in Germany – already comply with the requirements of the Federal government today. gateprotect’s security solutions are easy to use, comprise fully application-based positive validation of all network traffic and offer maximum network security for critical infrastructure. Positive validation actively and reliably prevents the intrusion of unknown malware and helps protect networks very effectively against attacks. Critical Infrastructure networks are not only protected against attacks from the outside, but also from leaks of information to the outside world, which results in highly effective protection against the loss of data.gateprotect Next Generation Firewalls also support the recommendation of the German Federal Office for Information Security that companies should use a multi-layer firewall concept based on the ‘Packet Filter – Application Level Gateway – Packet Filter’ (PAP) model, to provide for improved information security. In this model, the Application Level Gateway works as a virus scanner and inspects protocols that work on the application layer.gateprotect firewalls are some of the most energy efficient and reliable products available today, combining low power consumption with and higher throughput performance than comparable products and the use of the highest quality hardware and software components. gateprotect assures the correctness of published specifications by measurements with professional test equipment, rather than rely on subjective test assessments.”In the digital age, IT security is playing a more and more crucial role for smooth business operations. With our IT security solutions that are developed exclusively in Germany, we offer stable protection of networks so that companies may protect their data – including their critical information – reliably”, says John May, CEO of gateprotect GmbH. “As a recent customer survey shows, our customers want future-proof products in order to explore new markets.”Download this press release under: www.gateprotect.com About gateprotectgateprotect GmbH has been a leading, globally acting manufacturer of IT security solutions in the area of network security for over ten years.
