Untangle Announces WAN Balancer and WAN Failover
New offerings are part of Untangle 6.2, now available for download.
San Mateo, Calif.-based Untangle, Inc., which provides network security and control solutions for SMBs, has announced that Untangle 6.2 is now available for download. Highlights of this latest release are Untangle’s new multiWAN services: WAN Balancer and WAN Failover. Also included in this release is Ad Blocker, for filtering out banner advertisements.
WAN Balancer allows companies to split traffic across up to six separate Internet connections. The traffic is spread based on user-specified weightings, for less contention and higher performance. WAN Balancer also enables companies to eliminate a T1 connection in favor of multiple and redundant cable and DSL links.
WAN Failover allows companies to prevent network downtime caused by their Internet Service Provider (ISP). The application detects if a company’s primary Internet link goes down and switches traffic to a backup connection automatically. When used with WAN Balancer, WAN Failover detects downtime and reroutes traffic to the remaining Internet links.
Ad Blocker enables administrators to block Web ads at the gateway by transparently removing them from Web pages, improving page download times and reducing network traffic.
