Untangle Gateway Platform 8.0

Untangle Gateway Platform 8.0

ntangle Gateway Platform is a Linux-based network gateway with pluggable modules for network applications like spam blocking, Web filtering, anti-virus, anti-spyware, intrusion prevention, VPN, SSL VPN, firewall, and more.

Untangle leverages more than 30 of the best open source projects (e.g., SpamAssassin, Snort, ClamAV, OpenVPN) to safeguard the network with applications like spam blocker, spyware blocker, and virus blocker, web filtering, Firewall, IPS, VPN & more. To achieve industry-leading performance, Untangle's "virtual pipelining" technology enables each application to access network traffic in one singular process and therefore avoids the CPU context switches and buffer copies that would occur if each project was chained together through proxies. Untangle runs on VMWare or on dedicated standard Intel/AMD hardware. Untangle is free and open source under the GPLv2.

Some key Features:
