The CyberGuard Firewall for Windows NT with SecureGuard now includes Internet SmartProxies which adds additional intranet and extranet security features. In addition, CyberGuard has also included its MillenniumGuard software to the Windows NT package, which provides protection from noncompliant Year 2000 sites, the company said. How does a firewall protect you from Year2000 bugs? The Smart Proxies expand Internet capabilities that enable users to selectively configure the firewall according to their Internet, intranet, and extranet requirements while paying just for those functions they require. Just like all firewalls... As reported earlier, the MilleniumGuard feature uses rule-based filtering to provide continuous protection from non-Year 2000 compliant applications. Year 2000 compliance means a company's computer system interprets the Year 2000 as that year rather than 1900 or a meaningless 00. If your systems behind the firewall are year 2000 compliant, then there is no worry. If they aren't, you have bigger problems than what traffic is passed to your site from others. The new product also offers CyberGuard's operating system security based on its firewall for UnixWare. Available now, pricing for the CyberGuard Firewall for Windows NT, including the new Internet SmartProxies and MillenniumGuard feature, ranges from $1,495 to $15,545, depending on the number of hosts, utilized services, and application proxy models.
