Nokia has unveiled the latest version of its IPSO server operating system, claiming that version 3.8 of the security-hardened platform will deliver significant performance improvements across its entire IP security portfolio.
The company said that IPSO 3.8, which is now available for existing customers to download, will increase firewall and Virtual Private Network (VPN) performance on all new and existing Nokia IP security platforms.
The latest OS provides a two-fold to six-fold increase in firewall connections-per-second performance, as well as enabling up to three times' improved VPN performance, Nokia said.
IPSO 3.8 features security hardening, advanced routing, high availability and core clustering capabilities. The platform incorporates Check Point's SecureXL 2.1 API.
It comes with administrator tools to manage Nokia IP security platforms through either the web-based Nokia Network Voyager interface or command line interface.
John Robinson, senior vice president and general manager of Nokia's Enterprise Mobility Systems unit, said in a statement: "The new IPSO 3.8 operating system supports our belief that security is the foundation of mobility.
"Our goal is to provide unrivalled IT mobility expertise as we continuously innovate and evolve our technology, developing new capabilities to fulfil the needs of our customer base."
