Astaro releases installation and security products at LinuxWorld

Suzanne Wheeler Suzanne Wheeler Profile: Suzanne Wheeler

Astaro Internet Security makes three releases this week at the LinuxWorld Conference & Expo: one installation product and new versions of a security and a monitoring product.

Astaro Smart Installer is a blank thumb drive onto which administrators can download system images for individual Astaro products. A server will then recognize the drive as a CD with system images to integrate into a graphical user interface. The system saves time and money otherwise used ordering or creating CDs to upgrade new or broken applications.

Like version 1.3, Astaro Command Center version 1.4 details the health of each system device, enabling administrators to see which gateways require immediate attention or action (by threat level, license, or CPU/memory/disk usage).

Astaro 1.4 differs in that it divides security administration access into two levels: that for managers and that for unit managers. Managers can oversee system security from a centralized point and also grant or restrict each unit from access to data outside itself.

Changes to Astaro Security Gateway include improved email security and a switch in database management from MySQL to PostgreSQL.
