Secure-IT Gauntlet is a hardware and software-based firewall system designed to provide secure access and internetwork communications between private, trusted networks and public, untrusted networks, such as the Internet, or between subnets within a private network.

Secure-IT Gauntlet also allows the creation of Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) between authorised peer networks. Traffic travelling on the Internet between protected peer networks can be hidden through IP-level encryption using the Data Encryption Standard (DES).

The Secure-IT Gauntlet Firewall is an application-level proxy based firewall with the following features:

  • Firewall-to-firewall encryption using DES
  • Support for strong user authentication
  • system integrity with cryptographic checksums 
  • built-in real-time notification of unauthorised activities
  • extensible set of application gateways (proxies)

Secure-IT Gauntlet includes proxies for the following services; Terminal Services (TELNET, RLOGIN); Electronic Mail (SMTP); World Wide Web (HTTP, FTP, SSL and SHTTP); Gopher. The HTTP proxy supports JavaGuard, which can block Java applets.
