Nokia has launched two new network security appliances to address the scalable application needs of businesses.
The Nokia IP690 is the first Nokia IP security appliance with a multi-core and multi-threading processor architecture to improve performance and scalability.
The new hardware design offers investment protection by extending product life from two years to an average of five years, said Nokia. The Nokia IP690 is expandable through various interface cards and accelerated data path (ADP card) technologies.
This expandable approach allows customers to retain their initial investment for longer periods of time by offering the flexibility to expand performance at their own pace, said the firm.
The Nokia IP690 Firewall/VPN delivers up to 7 Gbps (Gigabit per second) of throughput performance, and supports up to 16 Gigabit Ethernet ports to run the Check Point VPN-1, Check Point Power and VPN-1 UTM suite of applications.
The new Nokia IP290 is designed for smaller branch offices and extended enterprise sites. It is expandable using a bundled empty PMC slot, and comes with the Nokia IPSO 4.2 operating system to address unified threat management (UTM) needs.
The Nokia IP290 and Nokia IP690 start at £2,100 and £15,800 respectively.
