The NGFWs offer simple management via a quick-start web-based GUI, and feature support for Allied Telesis Management Framework (AMF). “Packed with power from advanced multi-core CPUs, the new NGFWs offer blazing performance levels for sustained high traffic throughput.””With the increased use of mobility, BYO technology, cloud-based services and the Internet of Things, the Allied Telesis NGFWs enable organisations to easily make the move to user-based authentication and application-based control. Features such as high-throughput threat prevention, easy-to-use management, integration with leading edge IP reputation, and anti-malware services make the Allied Telesis Next-Generation Firewalls a fiercely competitive solution”.
