The NETGEAR ProSECURE® UTM series of all-in-one next-generation firewalls combine an advanced application firewall with best-of-breed enterprise-strength security technologies such as anti-virus, anti-spam, Web filtering, and intrusion prevention (IPS) to protect businesses against today’s application, Web, email, and network threats.
Redefining the Firewall
ProSECURE® UTM firewalls bring advanced network security technologies to small and medium businesses and remote/branch offices. Traditional firewalls can only block/accept traffic based on IP addresses and ports and offer little protection outside of that. This approach is quickly becoming obsolete in today’s Internet where many applications send/receive traffic over ports that are typically allowed by traditional firewalls. The built-in application firewall of the over ports that are typically allowed by traditional firewalls. The built-in application firewall of the UTM overcomes the limitations of yesterday’s firewall and allows the UTM to monitor, control, and block hundreds of applications such as Skype, Facebook, BitTorrent®, and Yahoo! Messenger; helping enhance employee productivity and enforce network usage policies. The UTM application firewall combined with best-of-breed anti-virus, Web filter, and anti-spam technologies along with IPS and VPN functionality, form the ideal firewall for today’s businesses.
Revolutionary Stream Scanning Platform
Given the high performance requirements of virus scanning, protecting latency sensitive Web traffic has often been a very difficult task using traditional anti-virus scanning methods. Attempting to scan viruses on legacy firewall platforms can slow network traffic to a crawl. This exposes an entire vector of the network to malware-based attacks. ProSECURE® UTMs feature patented Stream Scanning Technology which analyses data streams as they enter the network. This significantly reduces latency and in conjunction with a cloud-based anti-virus library with over 45 million signatures, offers an unprecedented combination of speed and coverage.
Secure VPN Remote Access
ProSECURE® UTM Firewalls provide secure remote access for offsite employees to the network by offering multiple types of virtual private network (VPN) tunnels. IT administrators have the option to setup SSL, IPSec, PPTP, and L2TP VPNs. 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.
Simple Setup, Ease of Management
The ProSECURE® UTM will easily replace any existing firewall or router. A simple 10-step setup wizard guides you through installation and the UTM will be up and protecting your network in minutes. Administration is performed through an intuitive Web-based interface. Set granular policies and alerts, check summary statistics and graphical reports, drill down to IP address-level data, and integrate log data with standard network management tools using SNMP. Virus, application, and IPS signatures are all handled by the UTM - online and automatically – making it ideal for networks with little to no IT resources.
