 Preventing security breaches from inside your private network

Preventing security breaches from inside your private network

Too often, network security relies on placing firewalls in front of public network access points and calling it a day. The assumptions are 1) being on a private network is synonymous with being on campus 2) campus users are implicitly trustworthy and 3) external threats are mitigated by the perimeter firewall.

Review: Multi Network Firewall 2

Review: Multi Network Firewall 2

Mandriva's Multi Network Firewall 2 uses the open source OpenVPN and takes some of the difficulty out of using this approach. We found that the web interface helps make simple steps of creating users and user certificates, which streamlines the process immensely. We liked the organized web interface and found it easy to use.

Review: Nortel VPN Gateway 3050

Setting up this product is not a simple task. Most of the setup is done via the command line, but the documentation does not help guide through this process very well. We found ourselves looking through different guides trying to locate configuration information. The absence of a quickstart card or a getting started guide makes this task even more difficult.

Review: SonicWall SSL VPN 2000

Once the interfaces are configured for the network in a quick and easy setup process, the SonicWall appliance is administrated via the web interface. This interface starts with the system dashboard, which shows all system information in a user-friendly layout. The web interface organises all tasks on the left side of the screen in several tabs.

Review: webNetwork

Although this product is easy to use, it requires a lot of configuration. The main program is set up on a server via a simple-to-use wizard. Once installed, its interface is organized with a clumsy tree menu to the left and a configuration menu on the right. The menus can be confusing and awkward to work with.

Review: AEP Netilla Security Platform

We found this product to be simple to set up and use. The initial configuration is done via a serial connection, using the command line. This includes choosing the device's network and name settings. Once the device has an internet provider, it can then be administrated via the web interface. The web GUI is simple and stripped down, consisting of a main tree menu on the left and a display window on the right. The menu is easy to navigate and quite intuitive.

Review: Caymas 318

Designed for use on the Java platform, Caymas Systems' offering in this category has a web interface called the Launchpad. This is intuitive, easy to navigate and well organised. We had no trouble at all setting up users and creating user access policies. Generally, this appliance boasts the types of features that administrators like. It is easy to set up and maintain and requires little ongoing maintenance once it is in operation.

Review: Aventail ST2

Setup for the Aventail ST2 is simple. You just have to configure the interface through a console connection and you can access the web-based setup wizard. This is easy to follow and guides you through the creation of the administrator account.
