Untangle provides a new breed of multi-function firewall and Internet management applications optimized for the unique needs of smaller organizations. The company’s proven network software and appliance deployment solutions are installed in over 30,000 organizations.
Untangle’s appliance deployment solutions ensure protection against all forms of viruses, spam, hackers and malware, alongside robust content filtering and application control – all in a unified threat management (UTM) device.
In addition, the company powers high performance enhancement capabilities with its Web Cache, bandwidth control, WAN Balancer and WAN Failover applications. It also includes remote connection capabilities with its IPsec VPN and Captive Portal applications.
Recently, Untangle released the Untangle 9.2 featuring an Application Control feature, the latest addition to its multi-function firewall software, offering more granular control of any unwanted or untrusted applications that could hinder productivity, reduce security, or present compliance violations.
Application Control analyzes the traffic running across the network, accurately identifying hundreds of today’s common applications such as social networking, peer-to-peer, instant messaging, video streaming, file sharing, enterprise applications, Web 2.0 and much more.
