5 VPN Tunnels for Secure Remote Access.

The NETGEAR ProSafe 8-port Gigabit VPN Firewall provides both secure IPsec site-to-site tunnels and IPsec secure access for remote clients. Employing a true firewall with customizable firewall rules, this VPN router is a high-performance, SNMP-manageable, network solution that furnishes multidimensional security including denial-of-service (DoS) protection, stateful packet inspection (SPI), URL keyword filtering, logging, reporting, and real-time alerts. Eight Gigabit LAN ports keep your data moving at top speed. With Network Address Translation (NAT) routing and classical routing, all the users in your small office can access your broadband connection at the same time.


The FVS318G takes care of all your security needs, with support of up to 5 simultaneous IPsec VPN tunnels, hacker protection via SPI firewall, DoS attack protection, configurable hardware DMZ port, and multiple VPN pass-through. It features SYSLOG, email reporting, and integrates with network monitoring tools via SNMP. IKE authentication provides peace of mind against unauthorized VPN network access and supports industry-strength encryption algorithms to ensure protection and privacy of your sensitive data. Dedicated DMZ enables you to separate guest traffic from production data. The ProSafe 8-port Gigabit VPN Firewall provides optimal value and defense against network security threats.


At the core of the FVS318G is NETGEAR tested and proven firewall and VPN technology. The rugged metal unit houses advanced, high-quality electronics, and is backed by a lifetime warranty.
