In a recent study ("Measuring the Value of Integrated Perimeter Security"), The Tolly Group (the authoritative, unbiased source for IT certification, research and testing) compared Astaro's all-in-one solution to several multi-provider solutions. The study simulated the network environment, as well as the demands, of a medium-sized business. Within this simulation, it compared deployment and management times of an integrated security solution (Astaro), with two "best-of-breed" alternatives based on products from CheckPoint and Juniper Networks/NetScreen.

The results of the study: Astaro's integrated solution took 2.9x to 4x less time to configure and deploy than the "best-of-breed" combinations. It also took 1.8x to 2.4x less time to manage on an ongoing basis. Multiple solutions also require more IT resources and have a high probability of human error.

The Security Manager solution includes nine critical network security applications in one pre-integrated package. Astaro's firewall provides the base for its network security solution and provides essential security via VPN Gateway, Virus Protection for Web, Virus Protection for Email, Intrusion Protection, Spam Protection, Phishing Protection, Spyware Protection and Content Filtering.
