Become a Clavister NetWall Expert

Deep down at the heart of every NetWall product lies cOS Core. Clavister cOS Core is the base software engine that drives and controls the range of our next-generation firewalls. Designed as a network security operating system, cOS Core features high throughput performance with high reliability plus super granular control.
In contrast to products built on top of standard operating systems such as Unix or Microsoft Windows, cOS Core offers seamless integration of all its subsystems, in-depth administrative control of all functionality, as well as a minimal attack surface which helps to negate the risk from security attacks.
