Now part of the Sophos empire, Cyberoam has been busy shaking up the enterprise security world with a range of high-performance firewalls at a price the big names can't hope to compete with. The CR1000iNG-XP is the latest to join the club and offers growing businesses a high throughput for a modest outlay.

The CR1000iNG-XP ticks all the right security boxes as along with an SPI firewall, it offers IPsec and SSL VPNs, anti-malware, anti-spam, web and application filtering plus IPS. There's more as Cyberoam's identity-based security allows policies to be applied to users and groups as well as systems.

Support levels are determined by the subscription you choose with the Total Value Subscription (TVS) providing 8x5 cover while the Comprehensive Value Subscription (CVS) extends this to 24/7 cover. CVS activates Cyberoam's Web Application Firewall (WAF) which protects web sites and applications from attacks such as SQL injection and cross-site scripting.

Along with a huge raw firewall throughput of 117 Gbps and an equally big 8 Gbps with AV enabled, the CR1000iNG-XP supports four FleXi port expansion modules. The price included an 8-port Gigabit module and Cyberoam offers options with eight copper or fibre Gigabit and 4-ports of 10GbE SFP+.
