NEW DELHI: Allied Telesis, a global provider of secure IP/Ethernet switching solutions and dealing in deployment of IP Triple Play networks, has selected Kaspersky Lab to provide anti-malware and anti-virus engines for its new series of Next-Generation Firewalls.
Featuring Kaspersky Anti-Virus and Kaspersky SafeStream II to provide comprehensive protection from a wide range of malware, the Allied Telesis Next-Generation Firewalls deliver a highly-configurable security solution, a statement said.
Allied Telesis has partnered with its own specialized hardware with two Kaspersky Lab products to deliver comprehensive protection against a wide range of cyber threats. Kaspersky Lab’s anti-virus engine provides protection from viruses, Trojans, worms, rootkits, spyware, and adware. Kaspersky SafeStream II provides wire-speed protection from zero-day malware, server-side malware, web-borne malware, drive-by downloads and more.
On being associated with Allied Telesis, Andrew Dai, Director for Business Development in APAC countries, Kaspersky Lab, said “We take pride in this opportunity to initiate business relations with Allied Telesis. We believe the mutually beneficial cooperation will enable the two companies to address specific market needs as well.”
Allied Telesis has been developing security appliances for over 20 years, and was one of the first vendors to deploy Virtual Private Network (VPN) functionality within its devices. The new firewalls raise internal and external threat protection and network resource optimization to cope with the demands of Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) and the ‘Internet of Things’.
According to Seiichiro Sato, Director of Global Product Marketing at Allied Telesis, “We are seeing considerable demand from customers looking for a manageable security solution for their enterprise networks. By partnering with Kaspersky Lab, our Next-Generation Firewalls can offer excellent performance and protection in an easy-to-use package,” he added.
