<strong>Burlington, Mass. &mdash; Jan. 18</strong><br />Astaro Corporation, a leader in delivering unified threat management (UTM) security appliances, announced it has opened a new Research & Development center in Bydgoszcz, Poland. The new R&D center is designed to escalate Astaro&rsquo;s technology into new frontiers of network security approaches and modes of delivery, including next-generation malware detection and blocking, e-mail discovery and messaging, security management and other anti-threat applications. Astaro is also preparing for the release of a new product line in 2008.<br /><br />The main objective for the R&D center is to drive the development of Astaro&rsquo;s centralized management product, Astaro Command Center (ACC). Currently staffed by five engineers, plans are already under way to hire additional developers during the next few months to grow the team.<br /><br />Operations will be managed by Pavel Vassilovski, a former computer scientist with 12 years of experience working for Alcatel-Lucent, where he focused on projects that centered on telecommunications domains such as switching, messaging and network management. While at Alcatel-Lucent, Vassilovski was responsible for the development and deployment of real-time traffic management systems and OSS/BSS services to large telco providers including Vodafone and Verizon.<br /><br />&ldquo;We are pleased to be opening a large R&D center in the heart of Poland, where a lot of undiscovered and willing IT talent resides,&rdquo; said Jan Hichert, Astaro co-founder and CEO. &ldquo;The new development center will give Astaro the ability to take our product plans from conception to the market place with increased speed and a higher level of quality. We are anxiously awaiting the latest release of ACC, which will increase the functionality and visibility of centralized management and network protection.&rdquo;<br />
