2010 Product Innovations - Network Products Guide


What makes it Innovative? Remote and branch office network performance issues remain a daunting task for many organizations, especially in industries such as legal, financial services and other fast-paced verticals in which employees must have instant access to the files and applications they need to do their jobs, regardless of their location. Many IT managers are unsure of how to effectively manage performance, troubleshoot problems and optimize remote, branch andsmall office network environments. This challenge often includes how to safeguard against external and internal threats, as well as manage end-user activity. To combat these challenges Cymtec translates their unique insight on how to better manage the remote, branch and small office environments into invaluable tools for IT managers. Unlike competitive network performance and management solutions Cymtec Sentry is the only product in the market that is specifically designed, architected and priced for the remote, branch and small office environment. Both affordable and scalable, Cymtec Sentry is further differentiated by its ability to cover the smallest offices consisting of just a handful of users up to worldwide organizations with hundreds of sites. Combining functionality that brings together traffic visibility, web and application enforcement, bandwidth shaping and containment of network threats, Cymtec Sentry delivers on one platform all of the tools necessary to better manage, remotely troubleshoot and optimize the branch office network. The simple and intuitive central management dashboard provides a consolidated view of network performance, user activities and network threats for all remote locations in one place, allowing IT team members to view activity in real-time while making policy changes and isolating threats. Also of note, Cymtec Sentry’s completely transparent deployment, fail-open capability and incredibly low on-going operational costs dramatically increase productivity for IT and security administrators. The product’s simple design allows it to deploy in minutes into almost any network, regardless of design, hardware or connectivity,resulting in rapid growth in markets that have been burdened by overly complex and expensive network security and bandwidth.
