Calyptix Releases AccessEnforcer v3.0 For Easier, More Effective Security

New All-in-One Solution Takes Internet Security to New Level for SMBs

Calyptix Security is proud to announce the release of AccessEnforcer Version 3.0, the latest major version of the AccessEnforcer software. Version 3.0 brings many new and exciting enhancements, expanded features and functionality to AccessEnforcer to deliver enhanced Internet security to small and medium businesses and nonprofit organizations. Many of these improvements have been implemented at the direct request of partners and customers demonstrating the intense focus of Calyptix on serving the SMB market. AccessEnforcer has been considered much more than a firewall since Calyptix launched version 1.0 in 2006.

These enhancements continue to establish AccessEnforcer as the best firewall for Microsoft's Small Business Server (SBS) used by millions of small business, nonprofits and other organizations around the world. Working with a select group of thought leaders across the country, Calyptix Security has added new functionality without compromising effectiveness or ease of use.

With Version 3.0's enhancements, AccessEnforcer reaches a new level of performance and feature excellence. In addition, Calyptix provides AccessEnforcer v3.0 documentation in an online handbook in response to customer preference for using web-based support resources.

Selected highlighted v3.0 features include:

  • Increased throughput (up to 800% faster)
  • Outbound traffic filtering
  • Multi-WAN support with automatic WAN failover
  • WAN prioritization
  • Enhanced reporting and logs
  • Direct access to Sourcefire Vulnerability Research Team (VRT) Rules
  • GUI enhancements
  • New and improved diagnostic tools
  • Inline v2.0 to v3.0 firmware upgrades (v3.0 supported hardware models only)

"We've paid close attention to the critical issues and goals of small and medium business owners around the world," says Benjamin A. Yarbrough, Chief Executive Officer of Calyptix Security. "Our development efforts in v3.0 bring options to SMBs that owners didn't think would be available to them because of their system and budgetary limitations. Because the needs and goals of each business are different, knowledge and understanding of the Internet's potential and risk is required to create security plans for the future."
