>> In this module, we're going to discuss
00:05
the new features of the Gaia embedded operating system.
00:05
All the SMB gateways are now already code aligned.
00:05
It supports unified policies,
00:05
updateable objects, domain objects, and more.
00:05
We also support Server Name Indications or SNI,
00:05
which allows the server
00:05
>> to safely host multiple TLS certificates
00:05
>> for multiple sites all under a single IP address.
00:05
>> The threat prevention policy unifies the IPS,
00:05
antivirus, anti-bot, and threat emulation.
00:05
There is a related sk for additional reference.
00:05
From the networking perspective,
00:05
we support 100 VLANs,
00:05
alias IPs, so we can associate more than one IP address
00:05
>> to the same network interface.
00:05
>> Link aggregation is supported for aggregating
00:05
or bonding of multiple network connections,
00:05
enabling you to join two or more interfaces together
00:05
>> to improve performance and redundancy,
00:05
>> thus increasing the network throughput and bandwidth,
00:05
and the DHCP whitelist,
00:05
allowing you to configure your network
00:05
>> so IP addresses are assigned by the internal network
00:05
>> DHCP server only for known hosts.
00:05
DHCP requests from other hosts are ignored.
00:05
We have improvements in the inspection performance.
00:05
Acceleration will remain active
00:05
>> during a policy installation
00:05
>> and will not impact on the gateway's performance,
00:05
>> and additional cipher support.
00:05
More information can be found on sk104562.
00:05
From advanced threat prevention standpoint,
00:05
there are multiple profiles for each security gateway
00:05
>> to enforce a granular threat prevention.
00:05
>> Threat prevention policy installation is faster.
00:05
IPS is now integrated into
00:05
the threat prevention policy rule base
00:05
and policy installation.
00:05
Threat prevention policy supports
00:05
IPS protections based on property tags
00:05
>> and also, you can label automatic download
00:05
>> of IPS updates for the security gateways.
00:05
>> The application control and threat
00:05
prevention blades use security packages
00:05
aligned to the enterprise grade appliances
00:05
to enable comprehensive security.
00:05
SecureXL improvements for multicore VPN
00:05
and VPN hardware enabled acceleration.
00:05
In previous versions, VPN was handled
00:05
>> only with one core handling the traffic.
00:05
>> With this release, multiple cores
00:05
can be utilized for the VPN traffic.
00:05
We also include the WatchTower mobile application
00:05
with many additional tools for monitoring the gateway.
00:05
Automatic device recognition and discovery using Fing.
00:05
We also support third-party engines to centrally
00:05
manage the Gaia embedded operating system.
00:05
This concludes this module.
