Today, we are going to review one of Cyberoam's smallest UTM device, the Cyberoam CR25ia. This metal-looking appliance is a 100% UTM-enabled device, capable of url/content filtering, antivirus / applications inspection and IDS/IPS analysis. You can read the full Cyberoam CR25ia product specifications here, while you can download an even more detailed PDF here.
Current bare hardware list price is 563€ (+ 86€ for yearly 8x5 maintenance & support), while for a complete UTM solution you need the UTM license which costs another 216€, bringing total cost to 779€. While these are not dirty-cheap prices, they are considerably lower then similar UTM devices from other vendors, sometime by a great margin. Analyzing CR25ia, keep in mind its price advantage.
List price are obviously subject to change; however, you can not expect prices to excessively fall down: we are dealing with a very capable device that boasts 4 Gigabit Ethernet ports and interesting UTM throughput, as Cyberoam certifies a ~50 Mbit/s full UTM (antivirus + IDS/IPS) performance. Firewall and VPN specifications are quite high, being rated at 450/225 Mbit/s (for UDP and TCP traffic respectively) and 75 Mbit/s for AES-encrypted traffic. On the other hand, 3DES performance is rated at only 30 Mb/sec.
