CHANNEL PARTNERS — Star2Star Communications (Booth 6011 and an Elite Sponsor) is adding managed security products to its lineup.
The Star2Star Security Suite includes managed firewall, gateway antivirus, VPN and firewall scanning, all of which work with Star2Star’s next-generation StarBox IP communications appliance, due out later this year.
Star2Star said Security Suite's features are as follows:
- Managed Firewall: Provides remotely managed firewall protection;
- Network Gateway Antivirus: Scans incoming data for malware, regardless of source and destination;
- VPN: Provides both office-to-office and office-to-remote client modes; and
- Firewall Scanning: Continual monitoring for unusual or suspicious data traffic.
“We built our Constellation Network to provide world-class, nonstop voice service for our customers," said Norman Worthington, CEO of Star2Star. “That same infrastructure lends itself to many other types of applications, and security is a natural fit for our customer base."
The Security Suite will be available on a subscription basis to all Star2Star customers.
