GB-OS® Overview

Current GB-OS Version

Current Version: 6.1.6

All GTA Firewall UTM Appliances are powered by GB-OS, "the original cost effective Internet firewall system". GB-OS is a totally self-contained solution that integrates an operating system with innovative hybrid UTM firewall technology into a single high performance, compact system. GB-Ware Software Firewall UTM system offers a choice of installation options from Intel based hardware to Virtual Machine (VM) hosts, further expanding the flexible implementation choices for GB-OS based firewall UTM systems.

GB-OS' numerous features and configuration settings are consistent across GTA's entire product line and with automatic updates, GB-OS is assured to always be running the latest version. GTA Firewall UTM Appliances are easily kept up-to-date, protecting networks from the latest Internet-based attacks with up-to-the-minute features and enhancements.

GB-OS prevents unauthorized access from un-trusted networks by completely hiding your internal network and providing transparent network access to end users. The system utilizes stateful packet inspection and advanced routing features with a powerful network address translation system. Unlike some firewall systems, GB-OS provides the user with complete transparent network access to external and private service networks for IP protocols (e.g., TCP, UDP and ICMP) based applications. In addition, GB-OS supports Dynamic Gateway Architecture with WAN failover, along with advanced routing protocols such as OSPF, BGP, and RIP. Remote access is also provided with the Mobile IPSec VPN Client, PPTP, L2TP and the GTA SSL Browser and SSL Client. Easy installation and setup provide users with reliable network access via laptop or mobile device, including iPhones and Android-powered devices.

Powerful unified threat management features include an Intrusion Prevention System(IPS), Mail Proxy with anti-spam and anti-virus options and Content Filtering that can be expanded to filter based on website content with optional Web Filtering. Using GB-OS' robust unified threat management features, administrators can effectively lock down their network while protecting resources from dynamic threats.

GB-OS is managed from an easy-to-use, GUI interface and is supplied on all GTA Firewall UTM Appliances and GB-Ware Software Firewall UTM systems. GTA firewall UTM systems operating GB-OS are the ideal solution for organizations of all sizes. Low cost and wide variety of standard features makes the GTA Firewall UTM Appliance family the price/performance market leader. GB-OS reduces the complexity of maintaining firewall security while continuing to provide a wide array of powerful, customizable configuration options.
