Allied Telesis is increasing its presence in Malaysia to meet a growing demand for integrated intelligent networking solutions from customers, said the global networking security systems provider.
During a recent announcement in Kuala Lumpur of new Next Generation firewalls, Allied Telesis APAC regional marketing manager Scott Penno said targetted and tailored attacks are increasingly breaking through traditional defences.
Solutions with "greater intelligence and insight" are now required with integrated application control, intrusion prevention and actionable reporting, said Penno. "Increased protection is available by subscribing to leading security services that provide Web filtering, anti-malware and protection against advanced persistent threats."
He said Allied Telesis was no stranger to information security and has been developing security appliances for over 20 years and was one of the first vendors to deploy VPN functionality within their devices.
"The new Next Generation firewalls are a revolution for the organisation and raise internal and external threat protection to a whole new level," said Penno. "We are seeing considerable demand from customers looking for an integrated solution across their network from the edge to the core."
"Our Next Generation firewalls deliver greater visibility and control over the enterprise network and provide a simpler infrastructure to administer and manage," he said, adding that these solutions feature support for Allied Telesis Management Framework [or AMF] with particular benefit to education, healthcare, and enterprise customers.
"These customers are under pressure to do more with less, and are increasingly looking for alternatives to their current networking vendor. AMF enables organisations to deploy networks in a fraction of the time, reduce operational expenditure, and enables their staff to focus on improving service delivery within their organisation," said Penno
Allied Telesis Malaysia's country sales manager, Paul Choy, said, "As for enterprises, a Next Generation Firewall can ensure staff are visiting sites that don't affect their productivity and providing details to reliable external parties ensuring that the organisations information remains safe."
"Packed with an extensive array of features and functionality including high throughput threat prevention, single pane of glass management and integration with leading edge IP reputation and anti-malware services, the Allied Telesis Next Generation Firewalls deliver a solution unequalled in the market," said Choy.
