Astaro has announced today the release of the Astaro Security Gateway version 7.5.

The company claimed that the new version includes an improved intrusion protection engine, multicast support and a real-time bandwidth monitoring capability. The intrusion protection engine integrates detection capabilities for Microsoft vulnerabilities released under the Microsoft Active Protection Program (MAPP).

Gert Hansen, chief software architect at Astaro, said: “The latest release of the Astaro Security Gateway was designed to improve performance and streamline the daily use of the product.

“In addition to the improvements included in the 7.5 release, what makes this new version so valuable is the validation of our roadmap following the customer and partner feedback we received. With their assistance we were able to quickly evolve the usability of the product by including many small things that make the end-user administrator's job easier.”
