On the one hand, the Cyberoam has the same feature set as any UTM, anti-malware, anti-spam, firewalling, intrusion prevention, content filtering. In that sense, UTMS involve the same hard work that a separate firewall would generate.
Can UTMs evolve beyond their powerful but sometimes rather limited roots? What is the policy? The company also produces a full-blown reporting and security compliance suite, iView. On this model, there is no PSU or cooling redundancy beyond there being two fans rather than one. The slight downside is that the initial policy creation process requires more thought than it cr50ai otherwise do because it forces admins to think about the security job in hand in terms of the users and their behaviour.

According to newcomer, Cyberoam, the next stage lies with identity-based management, a dry-sounding way of saying that security is about monitoring real individuals and not cybeeroam treating all users as representing the same risk.
The box itself is outwardly cybetoam despite coming with no fewer than six Gigabit Ethernet ports plus a console portprobably overkill unless it is designed to sit at the core as a distribution node. Easy to say, but it is actually quite a subtle idea and complex to implement. It turns out that in the five years since they first emerged as a class of device, UTMs have been maturing beyond the basic premise that a range of security layers can be combined in single boxes under one management console.
What gives it an interesting edge is the integrated nature of these elements under the identity-based security concept, which allows a logical set of policies to be created based on real users in real situations. It uses the same multi-core architecture as the rest of the range. Drill-down reports provide full data on every type of attack and vector, from individual users to graphical presentations of general trends. Are there any unknowns with Cyberoam?
The interface offers a lot to get to grips with at one time, and hinges on the core functions of user-focussed control and reporting. An IPS subscription is also on offer an extra purchase, a security element that is harder to assess. Ideally, it would rc50ia been nice to have had at least one Gigabit uplink on this as a halfway house option but perhaps this will appear in future versions. The buyer gets a lot for their money, including reporting, and can cybreoam security modules via the Cyberoam reseller channel one at a time or as an overall package.

In addition, the system funnels key data into one of a series of compliance reporting formats. None of this would be worth much without clear reporting, and it appears that some thought has gone into this area of the Cyberoam, which is not always a strong point of rival products without buying add-on modules. The cyberozm of the identity-based design is that such policies can be created for specific users in every security category, including, say, web filtering.

The heart of this in the 50ia is content filtering, which has a wide range of options, right down to setting up blanket blocks on the basis of certain sites i. Internal subnets will obvious need to be the latter, but this is easily achieved using the web interface. Fascinatingly, as well as defining what traffic heads into the cr5ia, the system also offers some intelligent features as to what goes out as well, for instance in its data leakage prevention.
How does anyone know that the policy, if it does exist, is being followed? Internet access policies can also be set up to positively allow certain clusters of sites to be visited by named users from the active directory list.
Similar rules can be applied to email. This speaks of its recent design. Fortunately, the system goes the next logical step and includes sophisticated report generation to the mix, essential to analyse who is doing what and where.
The IPS is an inhouse creation and we did not test its effectiveness or false positive generation rate, but that same suspicion could also be applied to any such module for any UTM. This addresses a major area of weakness of first-generation UTMs, namely that they naively assume security to be mainly an external threat. A lot of challenges, then, even allowing that few admins start from scratch.
