Network Box has announced that it has reached the first milestone in its endeavour to attain IPv6 Ready - Phase 2 criteria certification.
Network Box is a managed security services provider, specialising in unified threat management plus (UTM+).
IPv6 Ready is an internationally recognised certification that is awarded to vendor products after they undergo a comprehensive set of tests that measure the compliance of the products vis-a-vis the official IPv6 Internet standards.
IPv4 currently directs almost all Internet traffic. However, the last top level block of free IPv4 addresses were assigned in February 2011, so organisations everywhere will soon be faced with the very real need to migrate over to IPv6.
For this reason, IPv6 support and innovation are foundational aspects of the upcoming Network Box NBRS-5 product line, the company said in a statement.
