Value Bundles of WAN Load Balancer and Subscription-Free Business UTM Appliance Meet SMB Market Needs

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 23, 2007 -- SOHOware, Inc., a Wireless LAN pioneer and a key vendor of Business Wireless Networking recognized by prestigious WLAN market research firms such as, In-stat and Infotech announced a bundle comprising integrated unified threat management (UTM) appliance and WAN Load Balancers. Targeting the small medium businesses (SMB), the bundle offers a multi-port WAN Load Balancer and a stateful inspection Spam Virus firewall with IPSec VPN, content filtering, and Intrusion Prevention capabilities, all with no recurring update costs.

SOHOware's BroadScan™ SCN200 UTM appliance is now complemented with an external BroadLink™ BLM110, a 4-port WAN Load Balancer. It enables SMB with distributed offices to use multiple Internet gateways increasing the VPN connection uptime should one of the Internet connections fail. Benefits: real-time updates, Web site protection, high availability, automated failover, SSL VPN to secure remote access, chart network performance -- features that cost extra in competitive solutions. To help create a VoIP friendly network environment, BroadScan™ even supports QoS with SIP/H.323 ALGs.

SOHOware strongly disagrees. Our bundles offer a high level of security with better value. That is why security providers, WISPs and network integrators for Hotels, Multiple Dwelling Units, Hospitals and warehouses are turning to SOHOware's more nimble offerings."
