Intoto is the leading provider of network security platforms for Unified Threat Management (UTM) security appliances and secure converged Business Gateways. Intoto's turn-key software products deliver a suite of integrated security, gateway convergence functionality, enabling OEM and ODM partners to rapidly and cost-effectively address strategic growth markets.
By maintaining the broadest and most mature set of security software for a wide range of networking functionalities (e.g. Firewall, VPN, IPS, Anti-Virus, Anti-Spam, VoIP, WLAN, etc), Intoto's turn-key secure gateway platforms enables threat management, secure access, productivity assurance, convergence, and management in a variety of high-growth market segments.
UTM/IPS/Security Appliance: The IDC definition of the UTM appliance includes firewall/VPN, ID&P (intrusion detection and prevention), and gateway anti-virus functions. Other UTM capabilities often include content filtering, anti-spam, and anti spyware. Going forward, more applications are being added to UTM appliances such as VoIP security and SSL-VPN. Today, UTM and IPS/ID&P account for nearly a third of the total threat management security appliances market, and by 2009 the UTM space will be the largest single market and the ID&P market will be nearly on par with the firewall/VPN market. IDC predicts that the number of companies offering UTMs will increase substantially in the future. They will all need to procure the key security functionality to build their new UTMs. Intoto delivers the leading network security software platforms required to compete in this high-growth market.
Business Gateways: In 2004 In-Stat defined the multi-service Business Gateway [Sept 2005, In-Stat IN0501821LN] as an "Office-in-a box" that serves the entire data, security, and voice communications needs of a small business or branch office. Business Gateways have a simple aim: to combine the functions of many different types of common network equipment into a single device, resulting in cost savings, reduced management complexity, and increased reliability. These products are modular, standards-based devices, offering high-availability, a wide variety of service modules, and integrated system management. As they become more capable, single-function devices, such as stand-alone routers and switches, will become more marginalized. OEM's seeking to challenge the incumbent's dominance in this space, will need a complete feature set and a market differentiator, such as system architecture, price or TTM. Business Gateway OEMs will look to acquire or partner with "best-in-class" technology developers in: Security, data networking, wireless, and voice communication. Intoto offers best-of-bread converged business gateway functionality in a turn-key platform.
Broadband CPE: The market for broadband CPE is undergoing a transition, moving from one that is primarily modem based to one that is gateway centric [In-Stat, 2005]. This transition will enable service providers to provide a back-end managed SOHO network and add opportunities for additional revenue. A major increase in worldwide broadband subscribers this year, in addition to the hot popularity of wireless- and VoIP-enabled CPE is resulting in a high growth rate. OEMs and service providers require new technology to enable new rich functionality, key security features and remote management capabilities in next generation CPE gateways. Intoto provides all the required functionality in a turn-key platforms so OEMs can get to market quickly with competitive products.
