Nokia has expanded its range of high-end network security products with the addition of two appliances designed for the high-volume traffic demands of large enterprises, service providers and data centres.
Powered by Nokia's IPSO 3.8 secure operating system, the IP2250 and IP1220 hardware appliances incorporate firewall and virtual private network functionality. Both products use Check Point Software's SecureXL 2.1 API.
The devices can be managed with either the web-based Nokia Network Voyager or CLI interface, which manages single devices, or Nokia Horizon Manager for multi-device management.
In addition, Nokia IPSO offers support for protocols such as Radius client server, TACACS+ Client and others.
"Nokia's newest generation of high-end IP security platforms are designed to meet the ever changing business critical enterprise needs our customers seek," said John Robinson, senior vice president and general manager for Nokia's Enterprise Mobility Systems unit, in a statement.
The IP2250 and IP1220 will be available through Nokia's global channel from 1 June.
