The worldwide shift to IPv6 has begun, and the increasing adoption brings with it the challenge of bringing existing networks and services up to date with the emerging technology while reducing the impact of the transition on cost and infrastructure.
InfoWeapons tackles these challenges with SolidGate™, its multi-functional server appliance with network-security, IPv6-tunnel endpoint, proxy and application gateway. SolidGate™ allows for the smooth transition to IPv6 with minimal effects on the existing IPv4 network and the services that run on it.
SolidGate™ carries the IPv6 Ready Phase-2 Gold Logo (Logo ID: 02-C-000685), which certifies that the appliance supports core IPv6 protocols, has passed the tests for functionalities such as mobility and remote administration, and is ready for commercial deployment.
Deploying SolidGate™ affords the following benefits:
IPv6 Connectivity on Existing IPv4 Infrastructure. The 6in4 Tunnel Support and Application Layer Gateway in SolidGate™ allows organizations to shift their services to IPv6 while using the existing IPv4 infrastructure. This lets organizations provide IPv6 connectivity without immediately implementing substantial and costly modifications on the current network setup.
Data Integrity and Protection. The SolidGate™ appliance may be conﬁgured to provide support for a Virtual Private Network (VPN). This provides secure connectivity for networks and nodes exchanging data via this feature, allowing companies and their users to maintain privacy, as well as the conﬁdentiality and integrity of proprietary data.
Network Security. SolidGate™ is built with ﬁrewall capabilities that provide network protection through packet inspection and normalization, OS ﬁngerprinting and other utilities. The SolidGate™ ﬁrewall capability allows for the enforcement of security protocols, providing much needed security to networks of any size.
Easy Network Monitoring, Management and Control. The SolidGate™ management system provides administrators a simpliﬁed and secure avenue for management and control. SolidGate™ may be conﬁgured and administered through a menu-driven management console that provides uncomplicated access to conﬁguration options, status and performance statistics, and software updates via the Internet.
The global shift to IPv6 has started and, with the spreading adoption of The Second Internet, different companies and organizations are faced with the challenge of bringing their networks and services up to date with the emerging technology while limiting the impact of the transition on their business and current infrastructure.
InfoWeapons addresses this challenge through SolidGate™, a multi-functional server appliance with network-security, IPv6-tunnel endpoint, proxy and application gateway that allows for the smooth transition to IPv6 with minimal effects on the existing IPv4 network and the services that run on it. SolidGate™ combines the functions of a dual-stack stateful perimeter and internal firewall, VPN endpoint, IPv6 tunnel, and application layer gateway for IPv4-IPv6 translation.
Its IPv6 Tunnel Support feature and ALG proxy are vital components in easing the shift to IPv6 from IPv4. With this combined firewall and IPv6 transition mechanism, the appliance provides secure IPv6 connectivity to users on existing IPv4 networks.
