ClearCenter Releases ClearBOX 100 Hybrid Gateway Appliance Line
The ClearBOX 100 is a secure and powerful "IT in a box" solution that replaces an entire rack of separate server, network & gateway equipment saving money and simplifying IT management. It addresses multiple IT needs including content filtration, intrusion detection, antivirus, anti-spam, firewall, and VPN services. It can also act as a file, email, web, print and database server.
The ClearBOX 100 is the first server, network & gateway appliance product line to seamlessly integrate on-premise and cloud-based services. This Hybrid IT solution leverages the best elements of cloud applications and services as well as on-premise security and efficiency to offer the most productive open source IT platform available. For example, an organization's Google Apps account can be fully managed from within the ClearBOX's ClearOS console and integrated with user settings system wide.
It allows for one or more units can be configured in multiple mission-critical failover modes to ensure internet connectivity and network protection at all times.
"ClearCenter has given organizations a way to reduce costs associated with capital purchases of needed IT hardware because the ClearBOX 100 consolidates most every needed business service on a single hardware device," said ClearCenter CEO Michael Proper. "Our customers are seeing additional cost savings through ClearOS's implementation of a smart web-management interface that makes previously difficult tasks such as server configuration easy and manageable."
The ClearBOX 100 comes in three models starting at $899 with upgrade options available for additional charges including support for up to 100 users and a built-in Wi-Fi router.
