TRITTON Technologies, an Irvine, Calif.-based provider of networking and high-end multimedia products, this week debuted the Tritton Advanced Server Appliance Product (ASAP). The ASAP is a business computing solution that integrates 120 GB of network attached storage (NAS), with a virtual private network (VPN), firewall, router and four-port switch all for less than $400.
The TRITTON ASAP is designed for small- to medium-sized businesses and home offices. The server is compatible with Microsoft, Linux, UNIX and Macintosh operating systems. The ASAP comes pre-configured for a quick installation, enabling users to quickly set up a fully functional server straight out of the box. To ensure product longevity, the firmware is easily upgradeable via the Web for future product enhancements and capabilities.
"Some companies offer plug-and-play storage while others offer network security appliances, but we have found that the majority of small business owners and home users really want is an affordable all-in-one solution that combines security and storage together," said Chris Von Huben, president and founder of TRITTON Technologies.
The ASAP VPN feature is the perfect solution for SMBs and SOHO users that need to provide secure connectivity for branch offices, a distributed sales team or telecommuters. It is pre-configured so that a person with basic Internet skills can create users, activate the firewall, establish shared folders and configure a virtual private network in a matter of minutes. The entire system is managed via a Web-based interface.
"Hackers are working with very sophisticated tools and companies of every size need to be able to protect themselves against network attacks and data theft," Von Huben said. "ASAP provides enterprise-level protection without the need to hire a full-time IT manager."
ASAP also includes four 10/100 Mbps Ethernet ports, dynamic DNS, a virtual server for protected website hosting, and provides protection in the event of a Denial of Service or other known types of network security attacks.
TRITTON Technologies also introduced the latest addition to its new lineup of network attached storage products the T-NAS. Addressing the growing need for additional network storage in small- and medium-sized business, the T-NAS provides 120GB of secure network attached storage for about $349.
The versatile TRITTON T-NAS functions as a back-up device, filer server, and provides secure user and group access to shared files, data, video and multimedia files. This solution also comes pre-configured for quick installation and provides a browser interface for system administration and management.
The T-NAS features HTTP upgradeable firmware and connects to any 10/100 TCP/IP network via CAT 5 cables. It is compatible with Microsoft, Linux, UNIX and Macintosh operation systems.
"Until now, NAS products have hovered around the $1,000+ mark, placing high capacity network attached storage out of reach for most small and medium-sized businesses," Von Huben said. "The T-NAS delivers 120GB of instant network storage at a price that makes it affordable for budget-conscious business and SOHO users."
