Our flagship product is the Opendium UTM. This product contains all the features of our Web Gateway together with our sector-leading firewall system. The UTM firewall is not only able to protect your organisation from external threats, but is also able to apply firewall rules to networks, subnets, single IP addresses and individual users and groups. Utilising deep packet inspection technology coupled with our own dynamic identification technologies the Opendium UTM is the ultimate solution for protecting your school and its users
Opendium's UTM provides all of the features offered by our Web Gateway product, and many more to protect and manage your network.
The internet is a hostile place, but you can't cut yourself off from its benefits. You can manage risk by choosing which services to expose and which to block with a few clicks. We supply a continually updated library of Rule Bundles to control traffic without needing an intimate knowledge of the protocols being used.
Using our unique library of Rule Bundles, you can achieve fine grained control of traffic between your networks. Whether you are segregating your wired network from your Bring Your Own Device wifi, or isolating your servers on a DMZ, Opendium's UTM allows you to control access between your VLANs through the same hierarchical group tree used to configure web filtering. You can control access for your whole network, or refine the policies based on location, user group, time period or even down to the individual user.
Users, networks and individual devices are organised into a hierarchical tree. You can set global web filtering policies for the whole school and then refine them for more specific groups of users, devices or locations. Policies can be set right down to the individual user or device level if required. The unique Time Periods system allows filtering policies to be easily tuned based on the time of day and day of the week.
Controlling applications through a traditional firewall often involves having technical knowledge of the protocols being utilised by those applications. We collect that knowledge together into a library of Rule Bundles so you don't need to know the technical details. Just select an application's Rule Bundle and decide whether to allow or block it.
While most firewalls only allow you to control traffic from devices based on their IP address, our UTM system also lets you set up firewalling policies to control applications by user group, IP address, location or time period. The unique Virtual Groups system allows almost infinite flexibility to set policies based on a combination of attributes, such as user group and location.
