Netgear launches 8-Port VPN Firewall for small businesses

Provides IPsec VPN for secure remote connections and firewall functions to protect small business networks

By CBR Staff Writer

Netgear, a provider networking services, has launched ProSafe 8-Port VPN Firewall (FVS318G) that provides network security and remote access for small businesses.

According to Netgear, the new product provides IPsec VPN for secure remote connections and firewall functions to protect small business networks from hackers. It comes with eight gigabit ports, one gigabit WAN port, and up to 25 megabit per second broadband throughput.

Netgear said that the new FVS318G features a software-configurable hardware DMZ port to provide for server and other externally facing network resources like a web server and also have internal LAN security requirements. The DMZ port can be activated or deactivated using the GUI.

The DMZ port offers an additional layer of security to an organisation’s Local Area Network (LAN). External attacker has access to only the external-facing equipment in the DMZ, rather than the whole of the network, the company said.
