Netgear FVS336G ProSafe Dual WAN VPN Gigabit Firewall

SSL and IPsec VPN Tunnels for Secure Remote Network Access
NETGEAR's ProSafe Dual WAN Gigabit Firewall with SSL & IPsec VPN offers the best of both worlds by offering two types of virtual private network (VPN) tunnels, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and IP security (IPsec), for optimal secure connection to your network. SSL VPN tunnels provide clientless remote access to your corporate data for individual access anywhere and anytime while IPsec VPN tunnels provide both secure site-to-site tunnels and legacy support for client-based remote access. Backed by a true firewall, this VPN router is a high-performance, SNMP-manageable, network solution that furnishes multidimensional security including denial-of-service (DoS) protection, stateful packet inspection (SPI), URL keyword filtering, logging, reporting, and real-time alerts. Four Gigabit LAN ports keep your data moving at top speed while two Gigabit WAN ports provide load-balancing and failover protection to ensure maximum throughput and reliable connectivity to the Internet. With Network Address Translation (NAT) routing and classical routing, up to 253 users can access your broadband connection at the same time.

The FVS336G takes care of all your security needs, with support of up to 25 IPsec VPN tunnels and 10 SSL VPN tunnels simultaneously, hacker protection via SPI firewall, DoS attack protection, and multiple VPN pass-through. SYSLOG and email reporting enable thorough network monitoring. IKE authentication provides peace of mind against unauthorized VPN network access. The SSL VPN tunnels support industry-strength encryption algorithms and features such as automatic cache cleanup after session termination to ensure protection and privacy of your sensitive data. The ProSafe Dual WAN Gigabit Firewall provides optimal value and defense against network security threats.

Dual Gigabit Ethernet WAN ports support two broadband connections, in either a load-balancing or fail-over configuration. The load-balancing configuration enables maximum throughput by utilizing both WAN connections to distribute traffic across two broadband connections, possibly with different ISP providers. Alternatively, the second WAN port may be configured as a failover connection in case the primary connection fails, for another method of providing high reliability. The rugged metal unit houses advanced, high-quality electronics, and NETGEAR's tested and proven technology is backed by a lifetime warranty.

Easy to use
Auto Detect connects to your ISP quickly; the user-friendly Web-based ProSafe Control Center configuration screen and install assistant reduce setup time. With SSL VPN tunnels, employees can quickly and securely access company data with just a Web browser without going into the office. The IPsecVPN wizard automates IPsec VPN configuration and secure remote makes it simple to connect to multiple sites. Support for DHCP (client and server) as well as PPPoE allows for easy, widespread deployment. This well-built firewall has an integrated 4-port 10/100/1000 Mbps switch and is compatible with Windows®, UNIX®, Macintosh®, and Linux® OS. It comes with an Ethernet cable, and Auto Uplink on the all ports eliminates the need for crossover cables.

Working Remotely via SSL VPN Tunnel Protocol Redirection
Because corporate laptops are already loaded with the applications employees need to do their jobs, they require full corporate network access for file sharing and email connectivity. The FVS336G is able to connect to the corporate network using VPN tunneling, enabling users to securely and privately transfer information.

The FVS336G enables easy, secure and cost-effective clientless remote access for any employee without complicated installations or PC administrative access.

VPN tunnel protocol redirection enables users with administrative access to their PCs to:

* Use any application on their corporate PC
* No need to install, configure, and maintain IPsec software clients on corporate PCs
* Freedom from complex network limitations associated with IPsec such as NAT Traversal, multiple PCs from one public NAT address, etc.
* Freedom to access VPNs from any PC with a browser
* Use only a browser to connect — no software installation necessary
* Securely connect through a dissolvable Java/ActiveX agent
