WatchGuard Technologies announced version 12.3 of its Fireware® operating system for its Firebox Unified Security Platform™ appliances. Key to this update are added dynamic path selection capabilities that allow organizations to optimize WAN resources across complex, distributed networks while securing branch locations with a UTM platform focused on defense in depth. Businesses and Managed Service Providers (MSPs) can utilize this new SD-WAN functionality to seamlessly upgrade site-based security.
Mushroom Networks, innovators in Broadband-Bonding™ and Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) platforms, has launched ThirdEye 4000i, a hardened, Internet bonding device that can combine up to 4 cellular data connections into a single Internet connection so that video surveillance systems, such as Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) surveillance cameras, can be deployed without requiring wired Internet connections and still support high fidelity, high resolution and low latency over bonded cellular modems. With four embedded modems that support all carriers worldwide, a wide temperature range, greater vibration tolerance, and perhaps most importantly, Mushroom Networks’ proprietary Broadband Bonding technology, the ThirdEye 4000i is an ideal solution for remote surveillance applications without access to wired Internet that require mission-critical reliability.
