Nokia enhances security portfolio with Unified Threat Management (UTM)


New Nokia IP390 Firewall/VPN offers superior midrange price/performance; first appliance to run UTM

May 09, 2006, Mountain View, CA, USA/Espoo, Finland - Nokia, the world leader in mobile communications, today announces plans to offer Unified Threat Management (UTM) solutions in its portfolio of high-performance IP Security Platforms. In line with its legacy for offering best-of-breed security solutions, Nokia is introducing the Nokia IP390 Firewall/VPN appliance, a new mid-range price/performance leader. The Nokia IP390 will be the first platform to support the new Check Point® VPN-1 UTM package and VPN-1 Power solution to help customers add more real-time threat mitigation to their security investments.

“UTM is emerging as one of the most important aspects of a secure mobile enterprise, as CIOs perform a delicate balancing act between providing access to mobile workers and securing the corporate network,” said Tom Furlong, vice president, Security and Mobile Connectivity, Nokia Enterprise Solutions. “With our comprehensive enterprise strategy and expanding portfolio of high-performance security solutions and products such as the Nokia IP390, Nokia is removing the ’either, or’ dilemma for CIOs in companies of all sizes.”

Running on Nokia IP Security Appliances, the Check Point VPN-1 UTM and VPN-1 Power solutions add security functionality to address new applications such as AV (anti-virus), SmartDefense, Web, application firewall and SSL VPN, and also add another layer to enterprise detection and real-time mitigation. Combined with Nokia Horizon Manager and Appliance Manager, these solutions allow IT managers to easily migrate firewall policies, as well as set up, monitor and maintain security appliances.

“There are many UTM solutions to choose from but the core elements of functionality, security, performance and manageability cannot be compromised,” said Ken Fitzpatrick, chief marketing officer for Check Point Software Technologies. “Now customers of all sizes can choose Check Point on Nokia and benefit from two market leaders who are proven in securing information as part of enterprise-class deployments.”

The new platform features the hardened Nokia IPSO(TM) secure operating system and is backed by Nokia’s world-class First Call - Final Resolution global support and services.

“Nokia brings a unique heritage in security and mobile communications that is required to protect the applications that are being extended to more and more mobile devices,” said Scott Crane, principal consultant of ThinkSecure, an IT consulting firm in Sydney, Australia. “The performance of Nokia IP390 has the capacity to handle high traffic loads now and to grow as more sophisticated applications and access points are added.”
