NetGear unveils dual-band firewall with VPN security

NetGear has unveiled the SXRN3205 ProSafe Wireless-N Virtual Private Network (VPN) firewall, which the company claims is the first to combine dual band 5.0/2.4GHz Wireless-N with SSL and IPsec VPN.


Optimal, Secure Connection for Your Network

NETGEAR’s SRXN3205 ProSafe? Wireless-N VPN Firewall offers two types of virtual private network (VPN) tunnels, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and IP security (IPsec), for optimal secure connection to your network. SSL VPN tunnels provide clientless remote access to your corporate data for individual access anywhere and anytime without a software client. IPsec VPN tunnels deliver both secure site-to-site tunnels and legacy remote access support, connecting multiple offices together, as well as clientbased remote access. Backed by a sophisticated firewall, the SRXN3205 is a high-performance, SNMP-manageable security solution that furnishes multidimensional security including denial-ofservice (DoS) protection, stateful packet inspection (SPI), URL keyword filtering, logging, and reporting. Four Gigabit LAN ports in conjunction with an integrated dual band Wireless N Access Point keep your data moving at top speed.


The SRXN3205 Wireless-N VPN Firewall takes care of all your security needs, with support of up to 5 SSL VPN tunnels and 5 IPsec VPN tunnels simultaneously, hacker protection via SPI firewall, DoS attack protection, and multiple VPN pass-through. SYSLOG and email reporting enable thorough network monitoring. The SSL VPN tunnels support industry-strength encryption algorithms and features such as automatic cache cleanup after session termination to ensure protection and privacy of your
sensitive data. The SRXN3205 Wireless-N VPN Firewall provides optimal value and defense against network security threats.

Wireless Access

NETGEAR’s SRXN3205 Wireless-N VPN Firewall delivers the coverage and speed advantages of 802.11n wireless networks. Designed to deliver the superior wireless network that your clients want, the SRXN3205 makes it easy to move up to 802.11n. Operating in either 2.4 GHz or 5.0 GHz radio bands, the SRXN3205 provides the flexibility to transition from legacy networks. Select the 2.4 GHz radio band to gain superior wireless connection while maintaining support for existing 802.11g and 802.11b networks. Wireless- N clients on this network will experience excellent throughput and range, while legacy clients will continue to function. For the full benefits of Wireless-N, select the 5.0 GHz radio band to create an overlay network that does not interfere with existing 802.11g and 802.11b networks. In sum, NETGEAR’s SRXN3205 offers:

Up to 10x the coverage and 15x the speed of 802.11g networks
Dual Band 2.4/5.0 GHz operation for maximum 802.11g/b backwards compatibility or superior Wireless-N throughput and range
Wireless access security features including WPA, WPA2, rogue AP detection and 802.1x with RADIUS support
Easy to Use

Auto Detect connects to your ISP quickly; the user-friendly Web-based ProSafe Control Center configuration screen and install assistant reduce setup time. With SSL VPN tunnels, users can quickly and securely access company data with just a Web browser. The IPsec VPN wizard automates IPsec VPN configuration and secure remote makes it simple to connect to multiple sites. Support for DHCP (client and server) as well as PPPoE allows for widespread deployment. The SRXN3205 is compatible with Windows?, UNIX?, Macintosh?, and Linux? OS.

Use a simple Web browser to build an SSL VPN tunnel - no separate client software needed!
