ITShield Inc. ( released ITShield Firewall V1.2,
which introduces some new features:
1. ITShield Firewall can work in Pseudo-Bridge mode. Therefore, it is much
easier to be deployed if you have many public IP addresses and want the
firewall to protect your machines with these IP addresses.
2. ITShield Firewall provides a free license(session number=15) for SOHO.
You can choose DHCP or PPPOE during installing the firewall.
3. proxy_http and proxy_ssl have built-in URL checker. If the blocked URL is
GIF, TIFF, JPG, PNG, and SWF related media, they feed back a 1x1 blank
4. proxy_http and proxy_ssl can remove popup window code and floating ADs
code more intelligently. To use these feature, go to their Options windows,
and select [Enable Popup Killer].
5. Most of proxy_icmp and proxy_udp log messages can be turn off.
6. The way of rolling log files is changed. Instead of cping messages to
messages.1, the firewall renames messages to messages.1 when the messages
file grows to about 150M. Although it makes "tail -f /var/log/message"
unhappy, it makes the firewall stable on the old hardware

ITShield Firewall, a transparent firewall, contains the advantages of all
three critical firewall architectures - packet-filtering, Stateful
Inspection, and application gateway firewall. Because application proxy
provides the highest level of security and flexibility, ITShield Firewall
handles all the sessions in application-level by default. ITShield Firewall
can handle more than 5000 TCP sessions, unlimited UDP sessions, and
unlimited IP sessions at application-level in parallel. Furthermore,
ITShield Firewall can drop the unwanted requests at packet level. If the
high-speed network traffic keeps the firewall very busy, the administrator
can enable Stateful Inspection.
> ITShield Firewall supports PPTP VPN and IPSEC VPN. It is very easy for you
> to configure them.
