products & innovations Node4 launches next generation fully managed data centre firewall services Node4 has launched N4Protect and N4Protect+, two highly sophisticated firewall services for maximum protection against security threats. The new services offer customers security at a range of capability levels, providing cost effective, scalable and resilient security solutions with some of the industry’s most sophisticated threat reporting. N4Protect and N4Protect+ are built on Fortinet’s FortiGate firewall hardware platform, allowing businesses to reap the benefits of Node4’s investment in an advanced adaptive threat protection system. This actively compares notes with millions of other Fortinetenabled devices in the field to adapt to developing threats as they appear. Both Node4 security services incorporate geographic dual resiliency, with dedicated multi-tenant firewalls in the company’s Data Centres in Leeds and Northampton. Node4’s base level product, N4Protect, provides all the features expected of a standard firewall, while N4Protect+ enhances this protection further with adaptive Unified Threat Management and heuristic analysis. Node4 customers can also add Node4’s Anti-Virus and Intrusion Protection ‘plug in’ services to both products. Both services are fully managed by Node4.

Having previously only been available in a 60Hz version, the new 50Hz generator means the manufacturer is now able to deliver 2,750kVA of power utilising the powerful and more fuel efficient 60-litre engine. Ideal for mission critical applications that require quick, responsive and reliable emergency power – such as data centres, the C2750D5B provides the highest level of reliability as all the parts are designed, tested and supported to work together in this specific configuration. Cummins calls this, The Power of One, where all the major components – engine, alternator, transfer switch and control system – are engineered and manufactured by a single supplier to work seamlessly together for the life of the product. The introduction of the C2750D5B also builds on the success of equivalent models in the 60Hz market and provides high levels of power density due to its smaller footprint. With this high level of power, together with its performance and the reliability, the QSK60 Diesel Series gives peak performance and cost savings over the life of the system.
