Cyberoam, the leading global provider of network security appliances, on Tuesday unveiled Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFW) in its NG Series appliances.
The product comes with Layer 8 Identity-based technology for actionable intelligence and controls that offer complete security controls over L2-L8 for future-ready security in enterprises, Mr. Abhilash Sonwane, Senior Vice President, Cyberoam.
Jitendra Bulani, manager, Marketing Communications, Cyberoam Technologies Pvt Ltd, in a statement hinted that Cyberoam’s Next-Generation Firewall protection is EAL4+ certified and offers Layer 8 Identity-based security, application visibility & controls, Intrusion Prevention System, website filtering, HTTPS inspection, VPN (IPSec and SSL) and granular bandwidth controls.
He said there are additional security features like Web Application Firewall, Gateway Anti-Virus, Gateway Anti-Spam, and more, are also available.
“The mobilization of workforce has led to demand for anytime-anywhere access to network resources. This, along with increasing number of users like customers and partners connecting to an enterprise network from outside is leading to de-perimeterization of enterprise networks. Besides, trends like rise in number of network users and devices, application explosion, virtualization, and more are leading to loss of security controls for enterprises over their networks.
“Cyberoam’s Human Layer 8 acts like a standard abstract layer that binds with real Layers 2-7, enabling enterprises to regain lost security controls. By binding User Identity across Layers 2-7, enterprises can put security checks where they want to from L2-L8, along with complete visibility into user and network activities. Such actionable intelligence and security controls offer enterprises to strengthen their defenses, simplify security management, besides allowing them to scale effectively for their growing performance needs,” Sonwane added.
He also said that, “Customers looking to buy Next Generation Firewalls are often constrained by the lack of performance values shared by vendors. To address this, Cyberoam has introduced a new Next Generation security subscription bundle and provides throughput values with the NGFW security features turned on.”
Cyberoam said it was motivated to venture into the project as currently enterprises seek solutions that ensure best of both the worlds – next-generation network security and faster network performance with flexible connectivity.
“As they invest in capabilities such as NGFWs, they wish to harvest maximum business benefits and long term relevance to their IT and network ecosystem. Cyberoam NGFWs adequately address this need by providing high performance throughputs and flexible I/O slots allowing additional Copper/Fiber 1G/10G ports (XP) on its FleXi Port (XP) security appliances,” Sonwane said.
Moreover, Cyberoam’s Extensible Security Architecture helps enterprises tackle unknown threats of the future by offering the agility to prolong the life and performance of its NGFW appliances to support newer enterprise security features and enhancements.
Besides the Extensible Security Architecture that supports future security needs with the same appliance, enterprises can also add another appliance in cluster/HA to support more number of users in their networks.
Cyberoam Technologies Private Limited is a global Network Security appliances company, offering security solutions for the networks of the future, with its innovative technologies.
Cyberoam’s hardware and virtual network security appliances integrate multiple security features like stateful inspection firewall, VPN, Intrusion Prevention System, Gateway Anti-Virus/Anti-Spyware, Gateway Anti-Spam, Web Filtering, Application Visibility & Control, Web Application Firewall, Bandwidth Management and Multiple Link Management over a single platform.
The virtual and hardware Cyberoam Central Console appliances offer Centralized Security Management options to organizations, while Cyberoam iView allows intelligent logging and reporting with one-of-their-kind, in-depth reports. Cyberoam is accredited with prestigious global standards and certifications like CheckMark UTM Level 5 Certification, ICSA Labs, IPv6 Gold logo, and is a member of the Virtual Private Network Consortium.
FG to Boost Artificial Intelligence
Federal government on Tuesday announced that it has developed initiatives for the adoption of Artificial Intelligence technology in Nigeria.
The establishment of a Centre for Artificial Intelligence and Robotics in Nigeria (CFAIR) is also expected soon.
The National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) said that AI applications enable innovative solutions, improve risk assessment, better planning, and faster knowledge-sharing.
Abdullahi Usman Gambo, director of IT Infrastructure Solution, NITDA, spoke at a workshop in commemoration of International Day for Universal Access to Information (IDUAI) organised by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO).
He noted that AI would open up opportunities for access to information and also help to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the United Nations (UN) in the 2030 Agenda.
Gambo said: “Artificial Intelligence is poised to revolutionize the way we go about our daily lives – from governance to business, legislation to medicine to defence, etc. We can all agree that AI is humanity’s new frontier.
“We have developed initiatives for adoption of emerging technologies such as AI, strengthen cybersecurity, digital skills for digitally excluded citizens while enhancing the regulatory and market environment to increase access to ICTs, and promote seamless access to information.
“We believe AI and associated emerging technologies will completely enhance the speed, efficiency and effectiveness of information gathering during the exchange of data or the ways of communication,” he said.
Delivering his paper, Yushau Shuaib, publisher of PRNigeria, described access to information as the right of the citizens to accurate, transparent, and timely facts and figures.
The former National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) spokesman stated that governments at all levels have obligations to communicate with people, while the public has the right to know and criticize authorities through constructive engagement.
The media executive, however, appealed to Nigerians not to use social media platforms for fake news dissemination.
“The merits of new media on affordability, accessibility and instant delivery are occasionally marred by the fact that social media is sometimes used to spread fake news”, he said.
Shuaib called for collaboration of stakeholders in ensuring appropriate legislation through public awareness campaigns in order to improve access to universal information.

CWG Plc Empowers Small Businesses in Nigeria with SME Solution
Pan-African Information and Communications Technology Company, CWG Plc has said the essence of its Enterprise Resource Planning Solution (SMERP) that runs on the cloud is to empower small and medium enterprises in Nigeria and offer them the required tools to manage their entire business.
Mr. Dolapo Orogbemi, Product Manager for SMERP, who disclosed this recently to the media, noted that with SMEs contributing massively to Nigeria’s economy and creating both direct and indirect jobs, SMERP was designed intentionally to help SMEs thrive.
“Since inception, it has been the number one goal for us here at CWG because we have always identified the potential for SMEs once they are provided with the right support.
Thus, SMERP was designed to make available enabling tools for all SMEs across Africa at a relatively affordable price and to also make their business operations lean where they can save more resources to increase profitability,” he said.
Dolapo explained that in support of SMEs, SMERP has provided an effective ERP tailored to the SME market, providing services such as Inventory Management, E-commerce platform, Accounting, Point of Sale and Customer Relationship Management tool.
He argued that one of the major reasons SMEs don’t survive beyond the early stage of their business is due to inadequate funding to scale the business and this has become a default gap in the SME sector.
But with the CWG’s SMERP solution, SMEs can take proper records of their day-to-day business transactions to present to financial institutions as proof of profitability and project business growth for them.
According to him, SMERP’s competitive edge is based on value to the SMEs where they can have access to a complete ERP solution at an affordable price, stressing that the solution enables each SME with special requirements to execute their business needs.
