UserGate Virtual Firewall

UserGate can be deployed on the customer's virtual infrastructure. All hypervisors are supported, including VMware, Hyper-V, Xen, KVM, OpensStack, and VirtualBox. The functionality of our virtual solution is completely equivalent to that of the UserGate hardware system.

How to set up a virtual image?

Fast deployment time

Virtual solutions allow you to provide a high mobility and flexibility. A virtual image can be deployed in a very short period of time. This feature can be essential both for initial installation and system recovery after a crash occurs.

Savings on investments in hardware

Virtual solutions work on the customer's existing infrastructure. At the same time, there is no need to purchase and support new expensive network equipment, and the risks that are associated with the sudden failure of any components are significantly reduced.

You can enjoy scalability without needing to replace hardware platforms

Expanding resources that are already in-use or adding new virtual machines allows you to quickly scale up.

Convenient configuration and management of security policies

The use of a sample virtual image allows you to quickly install Internet gateways with certain security settings.
