Trustworthy Network Infrastructure & IT Security “Made in Germany”

E-mail, social media, cloud services, P2P portals – these days, data is being sent and received across multiple channels. This is where it enters corporate networks thus increasing the threat facing businesses on an ever-increasing scale. In addition, it is impossible for non-EU providers of security technologies to simultaneously comply with European and their own national legislation, so there is a risk of external access and data leakage.

Network. Data. Secured
In order to meet the individual security requirements of small and medium-sized companies, easy-to-use solutions are required. For this reason, LANCOM Systems – Europe’s biggest network vendor – and parent company Rohde & Schwarz – a globally active corporation and an established player in the cybersecurity market – have consolidated their competencies since 2018 to create a unique combination of trusted network infrastructure and IT security “Made in Germany”.

Secure networks and secure data from a single source
The new next-generation LANCOM R&S®Unified Firewalls supplement the secure and guaranteed backdoor-free connectivity from LANCOM with state-of-the-art security technologies: beyond basic firewall functionalities these include unified threat management such as sandboxing, machine learning, anti-virus and malware protection, as well as PACE 2 Deep Packet Inspection to name but a few.

Network security by design
According to Gartner, the world’s leading research and advisory company, 99% of all firewall breaches in 2020 will be caused mainly by misconfiguration. One highlight of the LANCOM unified security portfolio therefore is the innovative management graphical user interface that offers a browser-based and centralized command center for your security management. Not only does it enable granular fine-tuning but at the same time provides a concise overview of all secured devices and connections in the network. Formerly complex and time-consuming configurations are thereby greatly simplified since security policies can be systematically designed and enforced.

Stand-alone or cloud-managed
The LANCOM R&S®Unified Firewalls can be implemented as a complete stand-alone solution in conventionally manually managed networks, administered directly via an innovative user interface. Alternatively, they are integrated into the LANCOM Management Cloud (LMC) as software-defined security solution. In our network management system they can be operated as stand-alone devices or with the entire LANCOM network architecture consisting of WAN, LAN, WLAN and Security.

Licensing that suits your needs

In conjunction with the firewall portfolio, LANCOM offers two different types of licensing for all UTM firewalls from the UF-100 upwards. With the basic licenses, users activate device access and elementary firewall functions – suitable for customers with no need for UTM functionalities. The full licenses supplement this simple setup and offer the full range of UTM functions that are available for the LANCOM R&S®Unified Firewalls as already mentioned. Both license types are available for 1, 3 or 5 years.

Integrated solutions for higher security

So the bottom line is clear: Today’s complex scenarios require protection from “outside” attacks as well as from “internal” security risks due to incorrect user behavior or faulty configurations. The cooperation between Rohde & Schwarz and LANCOM offers the perfect synergies to focus on integrated network solutions, bringing together what belongs together.
