(www.TeamF1.com), the leader in embedded networking and security software solutions for wired and wireless applications, today announced availability of several new threat management features in its SecureF1rst platform in its highly-regarded Security Gateway Solution (SGS) for SMB security routers.

TeamF1′s InstanTunnel VPN security suite which includes IPsec, clientless SSL and PPTP VPN options, now offers an additional OmniSSL feature which offers site-to-site SSL VPN tunnels, interoperability with widely available OpenVPN™ servers and clients, as well as a unique mechanism to enable secure access to the LAN behind the router via a “cloud-gateway,” from a user account on OpenVPN’s commercial Access Server.
On the WLAN security side, new wireless intrusion prevention (WIPS) features in the SecureF1rst platform offer the ability to monitor Wi-Fi® traffic for guarding against threats from rogue access points, and protecting businesses by thwarting several common attacks such as “evil twin” and “man-in-the-middle” attacks.
