Firewalls & Gateways

Robust protective armor for sensitive data

The basis of IT security is a defense that provides maximum protection against external attacks. The right firewall performs the function of strong protective armor – both for network security as well as for safeguarding sensitive data.

When designing IT security architectures, a strong firewall at the boundaries of an organization as well as gateways with the highest possible security level are at the top of the agenda. Companies and public authorities that operate with business critical information require sustainable protection of data and applications. The solutions from genua provide proof of security through certificates and approvals from the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI).

Firewall & VPN-Appliance genuscreen

The exchange of data between multiple locations via the Internet is both convenient and economical – but must be reliably protected from many prying eyes. Your network as well must be safeguarded against the dangers from the Internet. Yet another common requirement is the creation of protective zones for especially sensitive systems within large networks. We developed the genuscreen Firewall & VPN Appliance for these tasks in particular.

High Resistance Firewall genugate

Your level of IT security is determined largely at the interface between the Internet and the local network.  This is where attacks from the outside and data sent from the inside pass through. The more carefully data traffic is monitored at this point, the greater the protection you achieve for your entire network.  IT security at this critical junctioH should therefore be given top priority.

The High Resistance Firewall genugate satisfies the highest requirements: two different firewall systems – an application level gateway and a packet filter, each on separate hardware – are combined to form a compact solution.
