From all of us here at NETGEAR - Happy Holidays!
PS: Be on the lookout for Christmas or New Years related spam. Even emails claiming to be from Santa Claus are not to be trusted ;-)

V3 recently published a review of the UTM9S along with a ReadyNAS for integration. They loved the ability of the UTM9S to be customized according to customer needs with the optional VDSL and Wireless N modules. They were also really pleased with the UTM/ReadyNAS integration on how that gave the UTM extensive logging and quarantine capabilities.
To read the entire review, head on down to V3.

We have just released UTM v1.3.14-0
This maintenance release contains bug fixes as well as minor usability tweaks. Release notes can be found here http://forums.prosecure.netgear.com/showthread.php?t=5481.
The offline update package can be found on Support.netgear.com. Simply enter your UTM model and go to the product page.
One thing to keep in mind is to update to version 1.3.7-0 before updating to version 1.3.14-0.

For the past two years, we are NETGEAR ProSecure have been advocating the need to ask "How well does my security system actually work?"
Multiple Reports have been conducted by third parties that show our systems are more effective at stopping threats than the others... And now ICSA Labs' Anti-Virus certification program is testing not only the WildList (a database of real-world viruses considered harmful to PC users) but also the Extended WildList, which consists of additional malware, such as keyloggers and Trojans.
ProSecure has been using the extended wildlist for two years now --- ahead of ICSA Labs.

We're proud to announce the newest member of the UTM family - the UTM9S. The UTM9S is a new breed of all-in-one security in that it has 2 built in slots in which users can customize their UTM9S according to their network needs. Need wireless? Add a Wireless-N module! Need ADSL? Add a ADSL module. Simply insert the module and it will be automatically discovered and usable immediately by the UTM.
It also contains all the robust security found in our award winning UTM line and on top of that, we've added ReadyNAS support. This means users can integrate with the ReadyNAS and leverage it as a storage partition to store logs, reports, quarantined files and emails from the UTM.
All in all, the UTM9S is a great all-in-one security solution for branch/remote office networks as it packs a lot of security/connectivity in one box while maintaining great performance.

Just got back from VMworld 2011 in Las Vegas where the UTM150 was on display along with many more of our business class products such as the ReadyNAS 4200 and our all 10Gig switch the XSM7224S.
While virtual machines are efficient and easy to deploy, we often forget that virtual machines inherit the same risks and dangers as their physical counterparts. Further more, because their so easy to deploy, it's easy to lose track of patches, security software licenses, and security settings making them an even easier target for attackers and malware. A UTM or STM at the gateway will go a long way towards protecting your servers and workstations - virtual or physical.

Great news over the holiday weekend - Our Stream Scanning Technology (our secret sauce) has been awarded U.S. Patent No. 7,971,254. Some background information - This technology was developed back in the early 2000's and enabled large enterprise networks with thousands of users to have low latency, high throughput anti-malware web scanning with modest hardware. We then took this Stream Scanning Technology and used it as the backbone of our UTMs and STMs.
There are many competitor products with "stream scanning" or "streaming", but most are simply marketing slogans. We're the only UTM in our space to pack in this many malware signatures and detection algorithms at this price point. All our customers get the same protection made possible by this patented technology that is typically used in large enterprise networks.
Obviously, we are not stopping here. The roadmap for ProSecure is very exciting and there are new ground breaking models and features just on the horizon. Stay tuned!

The importance of the good old firewall has been radiply declining over the past 10 years. More and more applications and threats are finding its way into networks through firewall policies that allow port 80 traffic (I mean, who doesn't allow port 80 outbound traffic on their network?). The floodgates have been open for years now, and it's up to the other layers of security to pick up the slack. Technologies such as Web filtering, anti-virus, and application control go along way in truly securing your network.
If you're business is still relying on that trusty firewall to secure your network it might be a good idea to look into replacing or supplementing that with more current and sopisticated protection such a UTM.

Microsoft this month released a total of 16 security patches, 9 of which had the highest level of severity. A total of 34 security vulnerabilities involving Windows, Office (Excel and InfoPath), IE,. NET, SQL, Visual Studio, Silverlight and Forefront products were fixed. The number of fixes ranks second only behind the April update for the year.
It is noteworthy that the updates included the first patch for the just released IE9 browser. The MS11-050 patch fixed 11 IE9 vulnerabilities, the most serious of which could use a specially crafted Web page using Internet Explorer to allow remote code execution. When successfully exploited, the attacker could gain the same permissions as the victim local user.
Although the privacy protection in IE9 is very good, if the user inadvertently opens a malicious website, hackers could still exploited a vulnerability to steal a IE9 browser cookie and obtain the victim's account login information, such as email or microblogging account.
To protect your security, we recommend that users immediately download and install the new security patches.
