Netgear announced the ProSafe Quad WAN Gigabit SSL VPN Firewall (SRX5308), the first business firewall to provide in excess of 1 Gbps performance for under $500, which translates to only $0.50 per Mbps.
The SRX5308 features a hardware-accelerated data flow architecture that enables 1 Gbps LAN-to-WAN of stateful firewall throughput. Further, the SRX5308 affords remote users the ability to build VPN tunnels to the corporate office to access centralized data using the IPsec standard or software clientless SSL.
The SRX5308 firewall supports up to 125 IPsec VPN tunnels and 50 SSL VPN tunnels simultaneously, for enhanced protection from network security threats. IPsec VPN tunnels deliver secure site-to-site tunnels connecting multiple offices together, as well as legacy, client-based remote access. SSL VPN tunnels enable clientless, individual remote access to corporate data, anytime and anywhere — without needing to install a software client.
In addition, the SSL VPNs support industry-strength encryption algorithms and features such as automatic cache cleanup after session termination to ensure protection and privacy of sensitive data.
The sophisticated SRX5308 VPN router is a high-performance, SNMP-manageable network solution furnishing multidimensional security, such as DoS attack protection, Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI), URL keyword filtering, SYSLOG support, configurable hardware DMZ port, e-mail reporting, logging and real-time alerts. Quality-of-Service (QoS), WAN traffic metering, and bandwidth profiling give network managers granular bandwidth management capabilities, while VLAN support enables separation of guest traffic from critical production servers.
The SRX5308 is compatible with Windows, UNIX, Macintosh, and Linux OS and is available now at an estimated U.S. street price starting at $499.
