Malicious Traffic Prevention
Hackers and scammers are becoming more sophisticated in their approach to vulnerable networks, distributing not just viruses and malicious agents, but putting together blended attacks, increasing perimeter security for other scam methods, multiplying mutations of initial attacks and migrating new threats. The DFL-M510 Information Security Gateway can prevent these threats by blocking illegal agents attempting to hide amongst normal network traffic, eliminating harmful programs, identifying victims and providing a ZoneDefense Mechanism* to quarantine infected computers. You can detect and drop traffic with health concerns, including Trojan, illegal agents and Network Worms, based on policy rules applied to specific groups, hosts, IP addresses and subnets.

Deployed between your company's internal network and the network firewall, the DFL-M510 can be installed in in-line mode without causing any change to your current network architecture. It implements a hardware bypass function that avoids single points of failure and maximizes network connection in the event of a hardware crash.
