HORLEY, U.K. -- Asita Technologies, the leading developer of multi-application, accelerated Internet security platforms, announces the launch of its next generation high-speed security platform, the Asita LineSpeed Gx1. Hosting multiple concurrent, best-of-breed security applications - such as firewall, anti-virus and content filtering - from the leading security application vendors, the Gx1 platform provides best-in-class price/performance for network security.Built around Asita's open hosting infrastructure, the LineSpeed Gx1 allows up to four concurrent hosted applications to run at high speed, on dedicated infrastructure, providing the combined protection of multiple leading security applications in a single integrated appliance. Whereas traditional, single-function security devices are often performance bottlenecks in a corporate network, the accelerated architecture and multi-application hosting ability of the LineSpeed Gx1 minimises any impact on network performance. For example, Check Point's FireWall-1 software forwards traffic at 3.4Gbps on the Gx1 platform, twice as fast as other leading security platforms."The threat of computer attacks is both real and increasing," warns Asita CEO, David Allen. "The average cost of a security breach in the UK is £77,000, and 44% of UK businesses have suffered at least one malicious security breach in the past year (according to reports from KPMG, PWC and the DTI). This demonstrates the importance of security to reduce the cost of security breaches to UK companies. Our customers require security solutions that maintain high network performance, using a cost-effective security platform. The LineSpeed Gx1's combination of open hosting, availability, performance and affordability means we can deliver the best security platform possible to our customers, while keeping within their budget constraints."Asita Technologies
