Comprehensive controls block or filter unwanted addresses, services, protocols, and URLs, fortifying your network. Up to eight simultaneous IPSec VPN security association connections protect links between business locations, encrypting all traffic as it traverses the Internet - perfect for telecommuters and remote offices.

SNMP support provides complete remote administration - perfect for corporate teleworkers, remote offices, and small businesses that can take advantage of centralized administration. Dynamic DNS capabilities facilitate remote access, cameras, games, and other hosted services for users with dynamic IP addresses. Works as the foundation for a small network, or integrated into a big one. Support for DHCP (client and server) and PPP facilitates widespread deployment.
