al 1° Gennaio la C&C Software non distribuisce più il ConSeal firewall.
In alternativa propone Advanced Firewall,che presenta le seguenti caratteristiche:

* Stateful Packet Inspection
Advanced Firewall falls into a class of firewalls called Stateful Inspection Firewalls. Stateful inspection firewalls overcome the limitations of packet filter firewalls and application-proxy servers. They examine more than just the "to" and "from" addresses, and do not require a proxy for every application being accessed. Stateful inspection firewalls determine whether packets can get through the firewall based on the protocol, port, and source and destination addresses. For every request that is allowed by the strategy, stateful inspection firewalls open up a limited time window to allow response packets, but ONLY from the same host. Also, by maintaining information about previous packets, stateful inspection firewalls can quickly verify that packets meet the criteria for authorized traffic. This makes stateful inspection firewalls inherently fast.

* Fine-Grained Access Control
Advanced Firewall gives the administrator unparalleled control over the traffic passing through the firewall. All traffic is blocked by the firewall, unless you have specifically configured a rule to allow it. Rules are configured per-device, and you have full control over specifying the local and remote IP address(es), local and remote port(s), protocol, and direction of the traffic that you will allow through the firewall.

* Comprehensive Logging
Advanced Firewall has full logging capabilities. You have complete control over what to log, how large the log file can become, where to store the logs, and how often to roll-over the log file.

* Automatic Emailing of Log File
Keeping an eye on your own or a customer's firewall is made easier with Advanced Firewall's ability to schedule automatic emailing of the log file to any email address that you specify.

* Remote Notification of Rule Hits
Rules can be configured to trigger an email to be sent to any address that you specify if the rule is 'hit'. For example, if you want to be notified immediately if a hacker is scanning your firewall for the Back Orifice trojan, simply configure a rule to specifically block this type of traffic and send an email to you if the rule is hit.

* Time-Sensitive Rules
Rules can be configured to only be active on certain days, or at certain times of the day. For example, your customer may want to allow web browsing by their employees only on weekdays between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm, or allow for remote access to their server only on Sunday evenings for maintenance............this is easily accomplished using time-sensitive rules.

* Password Security
Advanced Firewall can require that an administrator log into the firewall before having access to any of the firewall administration or logging screens. Using the password security prevents an unauthorized user from tampering with, or shutting down, the firewall.

* Control of non-IP and other IP
Unlike many other firewalls that ignore non-IP such as NETBEUI and IPX, Advanced Firewall can be configured to block this type of traffic. Other IP, such as GRE which is required for VPN traffic, can also be controlled by Advanced Firewall.

* Activity Viewer
The Activity Viewer is a real-time display showing all active connections going through the firewall. For example, with Advanced Firewall installed on a web server, a quick glance at the Activity Viewer would show the administrator how many visitors are currently at their web site.

* Remote Administration
Available soon as a plug-in module, the Advanced Firewall Remote Administration Utility will allow for remote monitoring and configuration any Advanced Firewall workstation or server.

* Log analyzer / intrusion detection
Available soon as a plug-in module, the log analyzer / intrusion detection component will provide real-time intrusion detection, as well as the ability to view comprehensive reports created from the firewall log files.

La versione definitiva verrà commercializzata dal prossimo 15 gennaio.
Nel frattempo è possibile testare la versione beta scaricandola da qui.
