Galleon Systems provides a secure network time protocol (NTP) server that sits inside your firewall and delivers highly accurate time from a GPS or radio source.

A secure NTP server is far safer than an Internet time server, because an Internet time server requires you to open a hole in your firewall and makes your network vulnerable to hackers. 

Enjoy accurate time and a secure network. Contact Gallon Systems to find out more.

What is a secure NTP server?

A secure NTP server is a much safer alternative to an Internet NTP server. Internet NTP services are attractive because they are free to use. However, free NTP servers require you to open a hole in your firewall, which compromises the security of your network.

A Galleon Systems time server receives time from a GPS or radio source instead of the Internet. It delivers that time to the devices on your network such as clocks, phones, computers and more. Hundreds of devices can be synchronised from a single time server, which makes an NTP server an excellent investment.

Even if you do connect your Galleon Systems server to the Internet, it is secure because it operates inside your firewall.

A Galleon Systems time server provides synchronised time and gives you confidence that your organisation is secure.

Three types of NTP server are available:

  • NTS-8000-GPS: receives time from up to 12 satellites.
  • NTS-8000-MSF: receives time from a radio source.
  • NTS-8000-GPS-MSF: receives time from GPS and radio sources for the utmost reliability.
