Cyberoam is into network security.

With organizations experiencing new trends like high internet speed, Virtualization, application Explosion, Increase use of web applications and BYOD* they ought to prepare for emerging security risk in their networks along with increasing concerns on inside threats. Cyberoam’s Layer 8 Technology treats User Identity as the 8thlayer or the “human layer” in the network protocol stack. This allows organizations to uniquely identify users, Control useractivities in the networkand enable policysetting andreporting by username, even in dynamic IPEnvironments like DHCP* and Wi-Fi*.Cyberoam is used in various corporate firms, educational institutes where dynamic IP is used to restrict access to certain applications and websites internally. But one may ask why a firewall is required in an educational institute? As an educational institution is committed to nurturing an environment of academic freedom in which cutting-edge research and learning is promoted. However, the college has a requirement to protect students and staff while accessing online materials. —————————————————————————————————————————— The college is interested in allowing online access to information, while simultaneously protecting itself from increasingly complicated cyber threats and this poses a major challenge for the college. One may say it is unfair to block full access to internet in educational institutes but I would say “For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction”. Similarly if Cyberoam is blocking something there should be a way to unblock it.Nothing is impossible in the world of programming. There are certain port/ports which can be used to redirect the flow of internet connection through a process called “Tunneling” and Cyberoam has certain port/ports which can be used for tunneling. If one can recognize that port/ports in his BYOD* and gain access though that port he can bypass the so called “CYBEROAM”.But remember as Cyberoam provides user monitoring facility in the 8th layer I would recommend not to use it in a negative way or be under the impression that no one is watching you. Coming to its Awards and Certifications.Cyber won many awards in IT field. Cyberoam was chosen as “IT Leader of the Year” under ZDNet Asia’s “Most Promising Techno visionaries” award.
