Adds Network-wide Security Services to any Windows Desktop
SAN MATEO, Calif. – September 16, 2008 – Untangle today announced its Re-Router™ Technology – the first solution that enables Windows desktops to also perform network gateway services like blocking spam, spyware, viruses, adware and inappropriate websites for the whole network.
Much like their larger counterparts, small companies are doing more business online and over the network. Unfortunately, the same network that delivers Internet services also creates security threats like viruses, spyware, and spam. With minimal budgets and in-house IT expertise, expensive security appliances just aren’t realistic.
Re-Router™ Technology, the latest free innovation from Untangle, finally enables small businesses to achieve network protection without network hardware. Running transparently in the background of any Windows XP desktop, Untangle’s Re-Router™ Technology protects the entire network from online threats without sacrificing any desktop functionality like word processing or web browsing.
Not to be confused with traditional desktop security software (Norton, McAfee, etc.), Untangle’s Re-Router™ Technology protects all of the PCs on the network… not just the host computer.
“For small businesses running Windows, our new Re-Router™ Technology offers a free and totally painless way to leverage all the best networking apps,” said Dirk Morris, CTO of Untangle. “There isn’t any network reconfiguration or re-cabling, just download the software and you’re off and running.”
