August 23, 2018 — Allied Telesis, a leading provider of hardware and software products that allow customers to build secure, feature rich and highly-scalable data exchange solutions, today announced that its AR4050S firewall has successfully passed certification testing by ICSA Labs. ICSA Labs is the foremost independent testing agency for network security devices, and certification proves the device meets the highest level of industry-recognized security requirements.

“Cyber threats are continually evolving and targeted attacks are increasingly defeating defenses,” said Graham Walker, product marketing director. “Attacks are no longer limited to businesses - an increasing number of embedded applications, such as those used for building management, surveillance and control, are being connected to the Internet. So it’s imperative that organizations use independently tested and certified products so they know they have the best possible protection.”

The AR4050S is a high-performance security platform with integrated application control, intrusion prevention, and actionable reporting. Increased protection is available by subscribing to leading security services that provide Web filtering, anti-malware, and protection against advanced persistent threats.

ICSA Labs certification means that customer can rest assured that their security device meets the most stringent security standards. For over 25 years, ICSA Labs has provided credible, independent, third-party assurance on behalf of enterprises for hundreds of security products.

Allied Telesis is no stranger to information security. The company has been developing security appliances for more than 20 years and was one of the first manufacturers to deploy VPN functionality within its devices. Features such as high-throughput threat prevention, easy-to-use management, integration with leading edge IP reputation, and anti-malware services make the Allied Telesis UTM Firewalls a fiercely competitive solution.
