Yoggie prevents security threats from entering a laptop or PC

The Yoggie Pico is available in two formats: The Yoggie Pico Personal for the consumer market and the Yoggie Pico Pro for the enterprise market.   Both units hold a 520 MHz CPU and a 128MB memory. 

The Yoggie Pico Personal offers 13 layers of security applications while the Yoggie Pico Pro is part of a two component enterprise solution that offers an additional layer in terms of a VPN Client and also an interface to the Yoggie Management Server (YMS).

Ingate introduces midrange firewalls and SIParators
Ingate Systems unveiled six SIP-enabling firewall products for midsized businesses: the Ingate Firewall 1500, the Ingate Firewall 1550 and the Ingate Firewall 1650; and the Ingate SIParator 50, the Ingate SIParator 55 and the Ingate SIParator 65.  Ingate Firewalls provide full enterprise security for all SIP and data traffic, while enabling SIP communication.  Ingate SIParators work with an existing firewall to allow the traversal of SIP traffic through the enterprise edge, securing SIP media while leaving the firewalling of data traffic to the existing security device.
All three firewall models and all three SIParator models are based on the same hardware platform.  The 1500/50 and 1550/55 can be upgraded to a higher version with a simple software download.  
The Ingate Firewalls 1500/1550/1650 and Ingate SIParators 50/55/65 have four gigaports each.  Their throughput and concurrent RTP sessions (calls that can be handled simultaneously) are as follows: 

  • Ingate Firewall 1500 (throughput 350 Mbit/s, 150 concurrent RTP sessions)
  • Ingate Firewall 1550 (throughput 380 Mbit/s, 300 concurrent RTP sessions)
  • Ingate Firewall 1650 (throughput 385 Mbit/s, 650 concurrent RTP sessions)
  • Ingate SIParator 50 (throughput 350 Mbit/s, 150 concurrent RTP sessions)
  • Ingate SIParator 55 (throughput 380 Mbit/s, 300 concurrent RTP sessions)
  • Ingate SIParator 65 (throughput 385 Mbit/s, 650 concurrent RTP sessions)

Ingate products support encrypted RTP (Realtime Transport Protocol), which provides security for live data with advanced encryption, confidentiality, message authentication and replay protection.  They also support Transport Layer Security (TLS) for secure SIP signaling.  

The Ingate Firewalls 1500/1550/1650 and SIParators 50/55/65 are available now.
