UserGate is a complex solution for sharing Internet access among employees in your company, making traffic calculations, and protecting your local network against malicious activity and software, such as hacker attacks, viruses and Trojans. UserGate is a flexible yet very powerful program that can be used in small- and mid-sized companies instead of relying on large and expensive hardware or software alternatives.
UserGate incorporates NAT and application-layer proxy capabilities and works as a point of entry to the Internet for a local network. You can share Internet access among employees in your company, use multiple ISPs, and manage bandwidth to avoid traffic congestion and make effective use of an existing Internet connection.
There are two antivirus engines integrated in UserGate that make sure all incoming traffic, such as e-mail, HTTP and FTP, is checked for malware. You can choose to include one or even both of them into your UserGate installation. Apart from protection against viruses and other malware, UserGate also incorporates a firewall, which effectively guards your network against intrusions.
With UserGate, you can enforce as strict an Internet access policy as you want, to ensure that the Internet is used appropriately in your company. The integrated BrightCloud Service allows you to apply web filters, and helps boost employee productivity by giving you total control over what sites your employees can access.
UserGate also includes an application filtering module that lets you allow or deny Internet access to network applications installed on client machines. User statistics are available in comprehensive reports directly accessible from within the program, or remotely via a web browser.
With DHCP server support, you can make UserGate dynamically assign IP-addresses in your local network. The resource publishing feature enables you to provide external access to corporate Internet resources, such as Web-, FTP- or mail-server.
