As technology progresses, the difference between routers and switches has grown blurred. Essentially, routers are Layer 3 (L3) products designed to connect networks with one another. A typical example is connecting an office network to the Internet. Switches are instead Layer 2 (L2) devices that interconnect various devices within a network. Generally, routers depend on CPUs to move data based on complex software, offering flexibility at the cost of throughput. Switches, on the other hand, rely on largely predefined hardware configurations to send traffic at the highest feasible speed. The current generation of routers usually come with L2 switches, and many of today’s switches include some Layer 3 routing capability. Routers offered by Cisco, the supplier of the vast majority of the world's routers, have advanced dramatically in capability and performance and Cisco now makes an extensive portfolio that features routers designed to handle the requirements of customers ranging from households to nationwide ISPs.

    Progent's ProSight Email Guard solution uses the technology of top information security companies to deliver centralized management and comprehensive security for all your inbound and outbound email. The powerful structure of Progent's Email Guard integrates a Cloud Protection Layer with an on-premises gateway device to offer complete defense against spam, viruses, Denial of Service Attacks, Directory Harvest Attacks, and other email-borne malware. The cloud filter acts as a preliminary barricade and blocks most unwanted email from making it to your security perimeter. This reduces your exposure to external attacks and conserves system bandwidth and storage. ProSight Email Guard's on-premises security gateway device provides a deeper level of analysis for inbound email. For outbound email, the local gateway provides anti-virus and anti-spam protection, policy-based Data Loss Prevention, and email encryption. The on-premises security gateway can also help Exchange Server to track and protect internal email traffic that originates and ends within your security perimeter.
