Security providers Avast have announced the launch of Avast Business Secure Internet Gateway, which will be delivered through the company’s MSP partners.
The cloud-based solution offers a global network of always-on security gateways designed to eliminate the many gaps in protection caused by legacy systems, on-premise security hardware, and Unified Threat Management (UTM) appliances.
The new services will be delivered as a simple-to-consume subscription service, offering enterprise-class security to SMBs. Now, those same network security services such as in-line inspection of all web and internet traffic, firewall, and sandboxing capabilities with full SSL/TLS inspection can be administered quickly and easily through a simple management platform by SMBs or their supporting managed security service provider (MSSP).
“As small to midsize businesses move to the cloud, legacy on-premise security appliances are increasingly obsolete,” said Chad Strader, Founder and CEO of Kappa Computer Systems. “Avast Business has a cloud-first security offering for MSSPs that delivers enterprise-class protection via a simple-to-manage cloud platform. Avast Business Secure Internet Gateway makes it easy for us to set up remote offices for our customers and ensure their workers can safely connect to company networks and work securely from any location.”
Avast Business SIG delivers full threat protection from malicious web content, advanced threats, phishing, malicious URLs, botnets, and more. It is powered by one of the world’s largest threat intelligence networks.
