UserGate Proxy & Firewall 6.0 has been launched by Entensys, a leading Russian provider of information and online security software.

UserGate Proxy & Firewall is a UTM (Unified Threat Management) solution that simplifies the setup and control of mutual access to local and Internet services, as well as the filtering of FTP and HTTP traffic and corporate network administration. A built-in firewall and anti-virus modules help to keep information secure. UserGate Proxy & Firewall keeps track of users’ web behaviors in great detail.

The latest version provides a full-featured VPN server that can build “server-to-server” tunnels and route traffic between subnetworks. Client-server links are provided by UserGate Proxy & Firewall.

As an automated database, the app makes use of the highly powerful Firebird DBMS. A MySQL server can also be accessed by users. As a result, the program’s output would be unchanged by the increase of the database’s data volume.

new version of the built-in firewall component has been released. It also has an Intrusion Detection and Prevention System (IDPS), which guards against scanning and flooding. The software now logs and sends attack alerts to the email address specified in the program settings.

In addition, the billing system has been greatly changed. Subscriptions, prepaid traffic, tariff-based speed limits, extra paying utilities, and other features that users demanded have all been introduced. The “Billing operator” function will now be assigned to an account that will monitor users’ accounts and access statistics from the administration console in the new release.

Entensys URL Filtering 2.0 content filtering technology is included in the product, which now has new web categorization guidelines. Pages pertaining to information management and parental control, as well as the most common non-work-related sites accessed by workers, have been divided into distinct categories. The new technology also allows for faster filtering.

The output of the NAT driver was given special attention by the developers. The solution correctly handles split packets, VLAN, and QoS prioritization, which improves the efficiency of Internet telephony (SIP, Skype, and so on) and reduces the chance of signal loss during a call.

The HTTP proxy component has been rewritten from the ground up. It now supports a number of ports and multiple providers for content publishing, as well as improved pace, NTLM permission, and keep-alive connectivity.

In the modified online analytics scheme, users’ web browsing statistics are open. The module produces personalized reports and graphs focused on previously collected web browsing results. The requisite data can be viewed in the most suitable format by the administrator.
