Göteborg, Sweden, 2004-10-01
Newly formed Genesi Scandinavia presented the CrabFire firewall at Smart Networks Developer Forum (SNDF) in Frankfurt, Germany. The CrabFire is not only a firewall, but also a spam and virusfilter.
The firewall can be configured to filter spam and e-mail virus heading for your corporate mailserver. If your company has several office-locations one CrabFire can be placed in each office and a secure, encrypted tunnel can be opened between them. Your employers will be able to access all computers just as if they were on the same local network. One other thing you can use your CrabFire for is Packet filtering. With this feature you can stop network users from using any Internet applications you do not want to be used -- such as peer-to-peer file sharing and instant messaging programs. Changing the service ports in these applications will not work - the CrabFire scans within the packets for signatures from these programs and will stop or log them, depening on your configuration.
The CrabFire runs on a 1GHz 7447 PowerPC processor and has 1 Gigabit Ethernet port (LAN) and 1 10/100 Mbit port (WAN). A dual-Gigabit version will be available shortly. The specifications are subject to small changes towards the final release.
Genesi Scandinavia recieved very positive feedback from both attendees and presenters at SNDF and we are confident that this product will be of great interest to companies all over the world. The CrabFire will be price-competitive towards competative alternatives. We estimate this firewall will be finalized in three months.
