Why CacheGuard?

At CacheGuard Technologies we understand that SME (Small and Medium Enterprises) can’t afford to invest millions for their network Security and traffic Optimization but they still deserve to remain safe and need to offer high quality network traffic to their collaborators and clients. That’s why we designed CacheGuard Gateway, an enterprise grade and fair price solution especially designed to address SME requirements.

Used Technologies by Large Businesses

Large businesses with a significant IT budget opt to stack multiple appliances to meet their requirements. In such an architecture, each requirement is addressed by a distinct appliance and considerable efforts are made to make them work together. Below you can see what a large business network infrastructure looks like:

CacheGuard Alternative

A typical large business network infrastructure includes 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®. We let you to guess the required budget to purchase, implement such solutions.

The real Cost of Network Appliances

Appliances destined to the large business market are unreasonable expensive because:

  • You pay for software while 99% of them are open source and free. Integrating open source software shouldn’t be so expensive!
  • You pay hardware made in China ten times more expensive than their real values!
  • You pay useless ASIC developments while the latest CPU in the market would be more powerful at a lower cost.
  • You (indirectly) pay the huge marketing investment made by companies that sell them.
