LANCOM expands its SME firewall portfolio with the new UF-360 rackmount model
Next generation UTM cybersecurity
Press Release 2021-655
Aachen, July 26, 2021—The German network infrastructure supplier LANCOM is expanding its range of rackmount firewalls for small and medium-sized companies. The new LANCOM R&S®Unified Firewall UF-360 is a high-performance all-round solution for effective cybersecurity that combines state-of-the-art technologies such as Unified Threat Management (UTM) with sandboxing and machine learning. The UF-360 is available now from LANCOM specialist resellers.
With the introduction of the UF-360, LANCOM continues to drive the generational change in their UTM firewalls. Thanks to a completely new hardware design and extended software features, the all-in-one box delivers a massive leap in performance compared to its predecessor, the UF-300: Twice the performance and storage capacity, a new module expansion slot, and two 10 Gbps SFP+ interfaces. It is suitable for medium to large office and school environments, depending on the respective data volumes.
SSL, deep packet inspection, and machine learning
The UF-360 uses powerful SSL inspection to address the growth in encrypted data traffic, while the R&S®PACE2 deep packet inspection engine protects against highly complex Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) cyber attacks. This engine precisely classifies network traffic, protocols and applications, as well as protecting against data leaks and data loss (data loss prevention, DLP)—even on layer 7. To protect against malware and viruses, even including zero-day exploits, suspicious files are analyzed using machine learning in a shielded sandbox. The cloud service used for this is hosted in Germany.
Graphical user interface & cloud management
An intuitive graphical user interface offers transparency across all secured areas in the company and simplifies the implementation of company-wide security and compliance requirements. Highest availability is achieved by a HA cluster featuring redundant hardware. Further, the UF-360 uses a simple pairing process to connect to the LANCOM Management Cloud (LMC). This enables transparent monitoring including alarms about the device status, and remote configuration from the cloud.
The LANCOM R&S®Unified UF-360 is available now at a price of EUR 1,999 excluding VAT. A Basic License is required as a minimum to operate the firewall and receive software updates. The Full License enables the complete range of UTM functions. Licenses are available with terms of one, three or five years.
The UF-360 has a three-year warranty, with an optional extension to five years. Support is provided by the LANCOM Support Center. A detailed overview of the model range and further information on the LANCOM R&S®Unified Firewall family are available here:
