Key features of the Kemp LoadMaster™ 2400 include:

High Performance L4/7 Server Load Balancing ensures each user gets the best application experience possible.

Server Hardware and Application Health Checking guarantees user requests will be directed to only “available” severs and “available” applications.

IP and L7 Persistence ensures that users maintain continuous connections with the specific server where “their” transactional data is available – even if the IP address changes or the session is temporarily interrupted.

SSL Acceleration/Offload optimizes server performance and user experience for encrypted application content.

Advanced Application Delivery Features of the LoadMaster™ 2400 accelerate traffic and reduces latency through intelligent Content Caching, Content Compression and Content Switching.

The Kemp LoadMaster™ 2400 Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) thwarts application-level threats even when masked in encrypted application content.

Global Server Load Balancing Support allows intelligent distribution of delegated services across multiple data centers based on location of client or other pre-configured rules.

Pre-Authentication and Single-Sign On validates user access to resources prior to forwarding requests to application servers and facilitates a simple user login experience across multiple applications serviced by LoadMaster
