Internet Security & Optimization for SME
Give your Small or Medium Enterprise the same level of network Security & Optimization that large businesses can afford without breaking the bank. If you were a large business with a significant IT budget, you would probably opt to stack multiple technologies to meet your exceptions. Below you can see what a large business network infrastructure looks like:
Used Technologies by Large Businesses
Large businesses usually purchase one solution per requirement and then make considerable efforts to implement and integrate them. A typical large business network infrastructure may include the following technologies: a QoS (Quality of Service) and WAN Optimization manager such as Riverbed® or Ipanema®, a Firewall & VPN server such as Palo Alto® or Cisco ASA®, an ADC (Application Delivery Controller) such as F5 BIG-IP® or Cisco Secure ADC®, a Web Gateway such as McAfee Web Gateway® or Blue Coat Web Gateway® and a WAF (Web Application Firewall) such as Fortinet FortiWeb® or F5 Advanced WAF®.
The Cost of Network Security & Optimization Solutions
The fact is that most of the time only about 20% of features offered by those solutions are actually used and large businesses still purchase them in the hope to use the remaining 80% features one day. But that day will never come! In addition solutions referred to above are expensive because by purchasing them:
- You pay intermediaries and resellers while you can directly purchase from developers.
- You pay their buildings and offices around the world while most of their developers work from home.
- You pay their outsourced low quality first level support while most of the time you can find their answers on technical forums.
- You pay ASIC that they may develop while the latest high-end Intel® CPU will be more powerful at a lower cost.
- You pay their hardware while you can purchase the same at a lower cost or opt for a virtual appliance.
- You pay programs that they integrate in their solution while 99% of them are open source and free.
- You pay the huge amount of money they expend for their marketing and advertisement.
