So after waiting for more information I decided I would go over to https://korugan.com
and dig up what I could on my own and redistribute it here with a good majority of the marketing mobo jumbo removed. This information could be outdated at any time as this product may be in active development but here we go.
Korugan UTM is a physical security appliance that comes in two form factors with a desktop (think Cisco ASA 5505) unit and rack mountable 1U unit. The number of ports, quality and speed are dependent on which of the six units purchased. As far as I can discern there are no software module offering differences in any Korugan category which is very nice to see; regardless of which Korugan unit you have your options remain the same. All software is under a single license that includes all firmware and signature updates that can be purchased in 1, 2 and 3 year periods. Summarized Korugan Features
- Gateway Comodo AV
- Web Filtering (powered by CYREN, HTTP & HTTPS filtering)
- Firewall (SIP, Policies, AD and LDAP Integration)
- Intrusion Detection/Prevention System (SNORT based)
- Traffic Shaping (QoS)
- Networking (Vlans, Zones, DHCP, ACLs)
- VPN (SSL VPN, L2PT and IPSec)
- Internal and External Logging
- Anti-Spam (SpamAssassin, Greylisting, File ACL)
- Hot Spot (Captivate Portal)
Overall these features are nice to have in one device/GUI to manage. Because this is a new product and I haven't physically played with a unit my opinions cannot be fully formed. My first impression comes as this devices looks to be an embedded Linux distribution integrating many standard open source products into a single functional unit with some Comodo functionality added. From the Admin Manual I find that this product reminds me closely of other all in one/dedicated linux distributions such as Untangled
. As the UTM security market is already saturated with competition Korugan is going to be hard pressed to find a niche it can carve out and I believe will be fully dependent on their support, pricing and user experience.
Personally I find myself initially being underwhelmed. I'd have hoped rather than taking to a FOSS/added features approach to the UTM device Korugan would have come out swinging as a fully feature product incorporating a higher degree of Comodo's technologies. This isn't to imply that Korugan doesn't fulfill a need in the market overall but it would be nice to finally have one box to rule them all. There are still tons of questions that need to be answered and hopefully time will let us know how this plays out.
