Untangle®, Inc., a leader in comprehensive network security for small-to-medium business (SMB), today announced strategic distribution partnerships with Prologic, a provider of IT solutions and services in Israel, and Prodata, a provider of hardware and software solutions in South Africa serving sub-Saharan Africa, Indian Ocean islands and Europe, to bring Untangle’s products and services to market via their thousands of channel partners serving EMEA, effectively meeting rising demand for next-generation, SMB-focused security solutions—a market Untangle uniquely serves.
“Untangle NG Firewall is redefining unified threat management with its next-generation security specifically designed for the below-enterprise segment,” said Scott Devens, chief executive officer at Untangle. “Trusted by thousands of customers worldwide for its effectiveness and ease-of-use, NG Firewall is the solution of choice for organizations facing not only the challenges of network security, but also limited budgets, resources and in-house IT expertise. By selecting Untangle as their network security offering, Prodata and Prologic can provide the most cost-effective and simply powerful solution to their resellers and end customers.”
NG Firewall delivers a comprehensive solution for content filtering, malware and threat protection, secure Wi-Fi, application control, bandwidth optimization, virtual private networks and more.

NG Firewall’s fully customizable, industry-leading reports provide administrators an unprecedented level of insight into what’s happening on their networks across all applications by user, group, time of day and more.
“Our mission is to offer a range of IT solutions and services to SMB and enterprise customers throughout Israel,” said Lior Levi, chief executive officer at Prologic. “Our customers have grown increasingly concerned about the threats to their businesses posed by cyberattacks. We chose Untangle NG Firewall for its reputation as a trusted, software-based solution that is flexible enough to be deployed in a number of different scenarios, from hardware to virtual machines to the cloud, easily and quickly—without a steep learning curve or costly client-side maintenance.”
Recent threats like the WannaCry ransomware outbreak grabbed headlines worldwide, putting IT professionalas on high alert. Such attacks have highlighted the need for organizations to put sufficient perimeter security in place to safeguard networks from the ever-evolving threat landscape. These strategic distribution partnerships will enable greater reach for the Untangle NG Firewall solution, enabling organizations throughout EMEA to protect their networks, devices and bottom lines from the impact of new and emerging threats.
“We selected Untangle NG Firewall as the uncontested best choice for our customers based on its reputation in the IT community at large,” said Jay Bradley, managing director at Prodata. “As a battle-tested, open source product, Untangle was the clear winner when it came to feature completeness, ease of use, and speed of deployment. We are excited to bring Untangle NG Firewall to market to meet the huge, unmet demand for cost-effective, flexible network security in sub-Saharan Africa.”
