NETGEAR is announcing the Insight Managed Business Router (BR200), to enable small businesses or remote and branch office (ROBO) installations to offer secure access to an office intranet through a secure site-2-site Virtual Private Network (IPSec VPN).
Many businesses today have employees working remotely from branch offices or from their home who often require access to company network resources in an easy and secure way.
With the new NETGEAR Insight Managed Business Router (BR200), these remote employees will simply need a BR200 in their home or remote office to connect to another BR200 in the main office and be able to access data residing on their office network securely.
The NETGEAR Insight Managed Business Router easily allows employees to share IT resources between two offices such as fileservers, network-attached storage or other business critical assets easier than ever.
Designed specifically to enable businesses to instantly protect their networks with a secure site-2-site VPN and firewall rapidly and cost-effectively through the Insight Cloud Portal or mobile app, the Insight Managed Business Router (BR200) comes with easy setup, firewall, VLAN management, and remote cloud monitoring and management from anywhere.
With the Insight Cloud, get full monitoring of all your security features, remote management of your router, and see real-time VPN connection and security status of connected devices.
