Collax Security Gateway
Professional security for your network
Professional security for your network
The Collax Security Gateway is a Unified Threat Management (UTM) solution. It combines all security functions in one product. It protects users, the network and your servers from threats from the Internet. It also establishes secure connections to branch offices and mobile users.
Intelligent firewall and filter technology
In addition to a modern stateful inspection firewall, the Collax Security Gateway provides sophisticated filtering techniques for web and e-mail traffic. Malicious or unwanted data - whether viruses, spam, phishing attacks or malware - are reliably blocked or sorted out. Targeted attacks are reliably fended off.
Remote access and branch networking
VPN (Virtual Private Networking) can be used as a communication channel to securely connect branches and mobile employees to the company’s own network. In addition to the VPN according to the IPsec standard for network connection, the Collax Security Gateway also provides SSL-VPN. SSL-VPN is particularly suitable for the remote access of mobile devices.
Secure e-mail communication
All e-mails are freed from common threats before they are forwarded to the mail server. The mail server is significantly relieved by the defense against viruses and the very high detection rate of spam mails directly at the gateway.
Controlled use of websites
Efficient filters protect against viruses and other malware while surfing. Access to unwanted or illegal content such as extremism, pornography or violence is reliably prevented. Time-controlled usage control for services such as Facebook, YouTube or eBay can regulate which websites employees can access and when.
Network performance and connection reliability
Thanks to the new Collax network link daemon, the software not only reacts faster to changes in network connections, but also evaluates qualitative information - alternative routes or interface connections are established much faster than before and the reliability of existing network connections increases.
The intrusion detection and prevention system
Intrusion detection and prevention (IDS: Intrusion Detection System / IPS: Intrusion Prevention System) provides additional security. The system detects malicious attempts to gain unauthorized access. Attackers can be automatically blocked by the firewall even before they can cause any damage.
Hardened Operating System - Efficient Management
Hardened operating system files of the Collax Security Gateway increase stability and reduce the attack surface for your company. At the same time, the authenticity of the Collax Security Gateway software can be 100% verified (deterministic). All settings can be made easily via a browser-based user interface.
Evaluation and statistics up to the automatically generated configuration report help with the administration of the server. An integration of the server into a network monitoring is possible.
Collax Security Gateway as Appliance
The Collax Security Gateway is also available as an appliance (hardware with pre-installed software). You can find suitable hardware in our distributors.

Today, some information from the company network must also be accessible to external employees at all times. SSL-VPN is the best choice if access is to be quick and easy and security plays an important role. Collax SSL VPN provides functions to connect employees to the company network without installing access software. Only a standard browser is required for access. Thus laptops, tablet PCs or smartphones can be used.
Via a browser applet it is possible to remote control a shared computer. The workstation from the company becomes mobile - it can be operated effortlessly from on the way or from the home office. You can work with mouse and keyboard as usual. Alternatively, it is possible to use the “Remote Desktop Connection” program available under Windows.
If access to a specific application on an internal server is necessary or desired, Collax SSL-VPN can establish the required network connection. In order to establish the connection, the user only has to log on via browser. The connection between the application and the server is established in the background. The user can now work as in the office without noticing any difference.
Web applications are often used in the internal network that only have a low level of security or can be accessed without user logon. Direct access from the Internet is therefore not possible. Collax SSL-VPN enables secure external access to these applications. After authentication, authorized users can use the application in the usual way.
Each tunnel is protected from access by third parties with modern encryption technology. In addition, the administrator can specify exactly which data is released for which employee and via which type of access.
- Secure access to closed networks
- No installation of clients necessary
- Remote access via any browser
- Assignment of user rights per user
