ZyXEL unveils security line for small businesses, home office market


ZyXEL Communications, a provider of secure broadband networking,
Internet connectivity and routing products, announced the launch of its VFG
Series of firewall / VPN gateways created exclusively for small businesses and
home offices.


Network separation provides an easy way to permit guests
network access, while ensuring data and information is not unintentionally


The compact VFG6005 and VFG6005N provide this crucial
separation, delivering the power, protection and rich features of ZyXEL’s
award-winning USG firewalls, including remote and Internet access, at an
affordable price.


Most homes and offices take advantage of fiber Internet
connection for faster speeds. However, to capitalize on the higher bandwidth
fiber offers, an even faster firewall is needed to ensure superior performance.


The VFG Series’ gigabit WAN port and high throughput
firewall eliminate performance bottlenecks by providing up to 75 times the
speed of typical broadband connections – thus making the product fiber worthy.


It also features 32 enterprise-class VPN tunnels to
ensure ample capacity for small businesses for a variety of applications like
network support for multiple telecommuters, connecting the main office to
several branch offices, and more.


Built-in support for IPSec and PPTP VPN offers
organizations greater flexibility to use either enterprise-grade IPSec VPN
client software or free Windows’ built-in VPN client.


ZyXEL’s VPNC certification also guarantees compatibility
with existing VPN equipment, offering customers further peace of mind. The
wireless-N version (VFG6005N) offers dual SSIDs for separate home and business
networks or a separate guest network, ensuring business privacy.


The VFG series offers strong router features as well,
with the wireless version offering 300Mbps speed. In addition, both versions
have a built-in 4-port gigabit Ethernet switch for ample connectivity.


The series also features 3G auto failover for
uninterrupted broadband access a novel feature for firewall gateways in this class.
The 3G access is supported via a USB port. Finally, the series offers solid
reliability with 60,000 NAT sessions, and UPnP Support for cloud applications.


Small businesses and home offices are just as vulnerable
to security breaches as larger firms,” said Steven Joe, executive vice
president of channel business at ZyXEL


As a result, consumer products don’t cut it for them,
yet enterprise systems are out of their budget. Hence, we designed the VFG
Series to deliver performance suitable for fiber broadband, essential business
features and ease of use, all at a very appealing price point,” Joe added.
