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.
