GTE Internetworking Service Offers Advanced Network Security

GTE Internetworking introduced this week an expanded version of its Site Patrol Internet security product that is compatible with any ISP network.

Site Patrol 4 enables companies to acquire advanced network security in addition to that offered by their Internet Service Provider. The service monitors a customer's network, providing alerts of potential problems and diagnostics for resolving the problem once detected, whether the company is served by GTE or a non-GTE ISP.

The expanded service supports multiple firewalls, including Trusted Information Systems' (TIS) Gauntlet and CheckPoint's Firewall-1; provides 24-hour network monitoring; and runs on the Sun Ultra platform.

In addition, the company announced support for V-ONE's SmartGate product, a Virtual Private Network (VPN) solution that provides secure access for remote users using encryption technologies.

Site Patrol 4 service is available immediately for $2750 per month, including a one-time installation fee of $5000. Site Patrol International is $3750 per month, with a one-time installation fee of $7500.
