Robust system-wide enhancements further ensure business continuity
System availability is improved across the board in the latest release, with support for advanced High Availability (HA) and the graceful restart of Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), further ensuring that business services remain uninterrupted for organizations.
“The transition from the traditional, edge-based security model to the distributed workforce model is a seismic change, triggered primarily by the pandemic-induced work from home mandate, but the impact will evolve gradually, and therefore the solutions we deliver need to address the associated challenges,” states Tim Liu, CTO and co-founder, Hillstone Networks, “The latest iteration of StoneOS continues to address the challenges faced by SecOps teams, and the constant risks faced by enterprises globally. Enhanced AI-driven threat protection, better integration, centralized control and management, and streamlined operations are all critical in delivering a stable and strategic approach to cyber-resilient cybersecurity environments.”
