Lan 1 takes on German firewall vendor

This collaboration exapnds GeNUA's reach of its Common Criteria (CC) certification which is used by numerous government agencies and companies in Germany to protect networks.

Bernhard Schneck, CEO GeNUA said Australia is a brand new market for the company.

"We needed a strong local partner with deep knowledge and extensive experience in sales as well as technical suppor," he said.

"Lan 1 possesses exactly these strengths in major areas of this region."

The GeNUGate is a two-tier firewall certified to CC level EAL 4+ and the only firewall that meets AVA_VLA.4 certification.

GeNUGate combines two different firewall systems - an application level gateway and a packet filter.

The application level gateway is the more complex of the two and analyses the data content at the interface so that undesirable content and viruses can be filtered out.

The packet filter then runs checks on formal information such as the sender address and accessed port number.

"GeNUA bring best of breed, German engineering in unique security solutions that protect critical data and networks, whether in a Government Data Centre, or in the field, securing laptop communications into secure networks," said Christo Simeonoff, manager, IP Security Business Lan 1.

In addition, the GeNUCard is a mobile security solution. A firewall, a VPN gateway, and a HSM token function all installed in one security package.

As soon as the GeNUCard is inserted into the laptop, it takes over the monitoring of all data communications with the receiving station in the company or agency network.
