Posted by at 10:32 pm on August 30, 2010

Netgear has announced the introduction of the Netgear ProSecure U 50 Unified Threat Management Appliance (U 50). The U 50 is the latest addition to Netgear’s award winning ProSecure U line, which is designed to protect businesses from the exponentially growing number of virus and malware threats, dangerous websites, spam emails, and hackers that threaten business environments today. Optimized for larger businesses and built with scalability in mind, the U 50 enables businesses to protect themselves through a wide array of tools including firewall, SSL and IPSec VPN, URL filtering, network antivirus, and antispam. Widely lauded and recognized worldwide in 2010 by leading security publications as a producer of industry-leading U s, Netgear continues to outpace the competition and challenge the existing order of small and mid-market business security solutions.

The ProSecure U 50 is an extension of the award-winning ProSecure U 10 and U 25 Unified Threat Management series. In addition to the benefits of these appliances, the ProSecure U 50 integrates with Microsoft Active Directory enabled environments for single-sign-on security policies -“ an almost universal requirement for larger businesses around the world.

In recent testing during August 2010, The Tolly Group in partnership with AVTest GmBH evaluated the ability of the U 50 to stop malware threats entering over web traffic via the HTTP protocol. The test found Netgear ProSecure to be particularly effective at stopping zoo malware, threats that appliance manufacturers often choose not to concentrate on for reasons of cost and complexity. Netgear ProSecure U 50 dominated the test at 92.29 percent efficacy, followed by SonicWall with 50.19 percent and Fortinet with 39.43 percent. Other test case scenarios are ongoing and a complete report on the findings will be available in September 2010.

“Our test results determined that Netgear’s ProSecure U 50 surpassed the other U models in this test in stopping threats. Because the malware universe is huge, most appliance vendors concentrate on a limited subset of threats. U vendors typically do very well against such wildlist threats -“ Netgear included,” said Kevin Tolly, founder of the Tolly Group. “However, zoo malware, which often mutates into new forms that threaten networks worldwide, is a clear and present danger, a danger that vendors often ignore at their customers’ peril. Netgear shows exceptional strength at stopping both wildlist and zoo malware threats.”

The Netgear ProSecure U 50 is available now in the US for $899.00 MSRP and includes one year of web and email subscription services, 24/7 technical support and an advanced exchange warranty. It is available from leading value-added resellers, direct marketers and e-commerce sites with a novel risk-free 30-Day trial program that allows customers to try the appliance in their specific environment first before purchase.
