The greatest security risk facing modern IT networks relates to the fact that increasingly complex security functions are required in order to effectively block attacks. This inevitably leads to systems that are extremely complex to operate, which, in turn, means the risk of user errors increases exponentially. As a result of this, operation and configuration errors in IT systems are the cause of around 98% of all security vulnerabilities in companies nowadays. This risk, together with the constantly increasing amount of work that is required to manage IT security systems, means a whole new approach to the operation of professional security solutions is required.

Future-proof with high security
Most modern firewall systems support proxy-based user authentication. This means that only those services which work with proxies such as HTTP or FTP can be issued to specific users.The gateprotect firewall has rule-based Extended User Authentication which allows any number of services to be assigned to one user or a group of users. These services can be provided with all the known additional options such as proxies or web filters.If a user logs on to the firewall from a computer, all the assigned services for the computer in question are enabled.
