NETGEAR Offers Gigabit Firewall With DMZ For Small Enterprises

NETGEAR, a provider of networking solutions, has announced the availability of the NETGEAR ProSafe 8-Port VPN Firewall (FVS318G) that provides business-class network security, remote access and Internet access for small enterprises with as many as 10 users. Providing IPsec VPN for secure remote connections and firewall functions to protect small business networks from hackers, the FVS318G offers peace of mind and security while also enabling fast networking by offering eight gigabit ports, one gigabit WAN port, and up to 25 megabit per second broadband throughput.

"With this VPN firewall, NETGEAR continues to provide solutions that are affordable to the small enterprise but offer the same sophisticated security functionality enjoyed by larger enterprises," said Jason Leung, senior product line manager for security at NETGEAR.

Featuring a software-configurable DMZ port, the FVS318G is ideal for small enterprises that need externally-facing network resources like a Web server but have strict internal LAN security requirements. The DMZ port can be activated or deactivated using the user-friendly GUI and adds an additional layer of security to an organisation's Local Area Network (LAN); an external attacker only has access to the external-facing equipment in the DMZ, rather than the whole of the network.
The unit features eight gigabit LAN ports and one gigabit WAN port to allow for speedy and secure connections at a rate of up to 25 megabits. RFC compliant IPSec VPN tunnels enable as many as five client-based remote access VPN tunnels to connect branch offices securely.

Easy to set up and manage, the FVS318G incorporates the Web-based ProSafe Control Center configuration screen and install assistant to reduce initial setup time. Compatible with Windows, UNIX, Macintosh, and Linux OS and backed by a lifetime warranty, the NETGEAR ProSafe 8-Port VPN Firewall (FVS318G) is immediately available via leading direct marketers, e-commerce sites and value added resellers.
