"Our customers who have begun using Cymtec's solutions have already expressed great satisfaction with the in-depth insight they receive into network activity and use, including potential threats."

It is the only product in the market that is specifically designed, architected and priced for the remote, branch, and small office environment. Cymtec Sentry appliances in every location, customers are able to optimize existing network investments by reducing downtime, troubleshooting more efficiently and ensuring the correct use of network assets.

Rubin, chief executive officer, Cymtec Systems.
