SOHOWARE Standardizes GigE Interfaces on All Its Open Source UTM Appliances

Open Source Security Appliance Offers Greater Value to SMB and Smaller ISPs Globally

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - September 19, 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 that it is standardizing GigE Interfaces on all of its BroadScan™ Open Source unified threat management (UTM) appliances.

"Our customers ask for BroadScan because it offers unprecedented performance and value without the burdensome yearly subscription charges. Now with GigE interfaces without any significant price increase, it is even a greater value," says Tal Rudnitsky, CTO of IPGrade, a long time SOHOWARE Channel Partner. He adds, "Cost effective and sensible enhancements like these help us increase our revenue as well as attract new business."

An early champion of the Open Source networking, SOHOWARE introduced BroadScan all-in-one network security appliance 2 years ago based on the leading Open Source software engines ClamAV, SpamAssassin and SNORT. The email scanning is optimized for accuracy with Heuristic analysis and Bayesian self-training functions for inbound and outbound traffic. An intuitive wizard enables graphic charting of network performance and event statistics by time, history and event types.

"We continue to improve customer value through cost effective performance enhancements in all our network solutions as dictated by our Six Sigma Business Model Innovation process," says Ashok Kumar, SOHOWARE's Chief Marketing Officer and Vice President of Business Development.
