Internet Access Management (IAM) solution, Sangfor IAM v3.4 launched by Sangfor Technologies Co. Ltd includes features such as user authentication, web filtering, application control, bandwidth management, caching, Internet traffic reporting and logging.

The IAM solution offers real-time network management with enhanced monitoring, control and optimisation as well as full network visibility for enhanced risk management, according to the company.

The system identifies, categorises and logs the Internet users' access activities, bandwidth consumption and other related contents to enhance visibility. Based on analyses of reports on behavioural patterns of users and traffic, IAM can control and manage network traffic and optimise bandwidth utilisation appropriately.

The IAM suite of solutions is said to provide comprehensive controls over applications such as social websites, forums, IM, Email, online video, P2P and file transfer. Using its identification capabilities and full network traffic visibility, network administrators can manage and control Internet access more effectively, improve work efficiency, reduce risks of data loss, prevent copyright infringement and mitigate other risks caused by unauthorised Internet access. Its web filtering and application control can help prevent accesses to inappropriate content. IAM identifies and categorises millions of websites and applications, and provides flexible control policies to block targeted websites and applications.

Sangfor IAM enables network administrators to control up to 96 kinds of IM tools including encrypted or unencrypted IM software such as MSN, Skype, Gtalk, MSNShell, Yahoo!, QQ, etc. Network administrators can block IM tools or allow IM chatting while blocking file sharing via IM. Sangfor's IM logging features enable IT to audit all IM chatting content to ensure full visualisation of the network.

Sangfor IAM's Intelligent P2P Identification Technology can identify more than 30 P2P application protocols including BitTorrent, eMule, Thunder, etc. with deep packet inspection (DPI) capability, according to the company. Real-time logging is touted as among the highlights of the v3.4. It allows IT managers and administrators to generate a more accurate and precise networking map to better aid in data traffic and Internet security analysis.

In addition, an upgraded web-based interface has been designed for IAM v3.4. "Previously, it would take our new engineers about 30 minutes to configure an IAM installation. Now they can reduce configuration time by as much as 30 per cent," said Frank Yang, regional manager, international division of Sangfor.
