    Fire door protects against Net raiders
    
    A communications device allowmg protected internet access has been
    released by Netway 2000. 
    
    Known as Firegate, businesses using this device will be protected by a
    security shield known as 'cloaked technology', say the manufacturers. This
    ensures that connected workstations are invisible to potential raiders;
    working on the principle, what cannot be seen cannot be attacked. 
    
    The device is said to be able to check each incoming data packet,
    including source and destination, to verify sender authenticity.Inbound
    screening is reinforced by an one-way filter, allowing outbound internet
    gateway traffic to flow freely. 
    
    Furthermore, Firegate slots seamlessly into existing systems and has a
    single dial-up connection, enabling Network Managers to elitninate the
    added risks incurred with multiple access points.
    
    Allowing multiple users to simultaneously browse the inter-net and
    exchange internal and external mail, Firegate also lets users switch
    between sending and receiving email and internet access. As an email
    server, this device permits large user groups to be connected in a
    flexible environment, giving users the freedom of an electronic post room. 
    
    At the same time, the network manager remains in control of internet
    connections since permission for Web access is required before connection
    is possible.  Firegate is installed using Windows NT or 95 based software,
    and sells at 1995.
