Collax Security Gateway integrates all the enterprise level security tools in a solutions that is at the same time powerful but also easy to use.

The general definition of UTM (Unified Threat Management) appliance, used by many manufacturers, could probably be quite restrictive if applied to the Collax Security Gateway as it doesn't simply guarantees high levels of security but it provides integration features that go well beyond your expectations.

Security through simplification

Numerous studies made on businesses network security demonstrates that the vast majority of vulnerabilities found are due to 2 main issues:

  • some firewalls allow, by default, all the traffic from the internal network to go without checks to the Internet so viruses and trojans can operate freely
  • most UTMs are so complex to manage that it's never clear what type of traffic is allowed on the various connections so network operators sooner or later will get some configuration seriously wrong

With Collax Security Gateway you have a clear view of all the network rules applied to your firewall and the traffic that is being routed through your networks so you won't risk to lose control of your security policies.

Collax's family of products

Collax, your IT infrastructureCollax FlexibleIT_Logo

Collax has been making system administrators' life a lot easier for many years by standardising and simplifying the management of Linux servers. There is no need to edit complex configuration files or manage many servers with different Linux distributions and versions.

As Collax produces a family of products, covering most of the requirements SMEs may have, the interfaces and the methodologies used are very similar so once you learned how to use one product all the others are a lot easier to learn than having to deal with different manufacturers with different web interfaces.

Not just a Linux server management console

Collax Configuration Report

While most users will just notice a professionally designed web interface there is a lot more to it. To guarantee maximum uptime for your infrastructure Collax runs its own software repository where all the packages of its Debian based distribution are tested for bugs and compatibility with other add-on software that you may have installed on your Collax server.

A team of engineers is constantly busy developing new features and improving existing ones so that you can enjoy the robustness, efficiency and cost savings a Linux platform can deliver without the management complexity.

With Collax products you have also the peace of mind that all configurations are well documented as it creates for you a report containing every single service running on the infrastructure.
