Ultra-fast Performance for Tomorrow’s VPN Deployments
Business operations have become more mobile than ever. New and advanced business applications have also created demand for faster VPN performance, which legacy firewall and UTM appliances cannot satisfy. To keep up with the dynamic business environment, business networks today need to provide branch offices, chain stores and mobile employees faster remote access to headquarter resources. Moreover, they must do so without exposing company resources and customer information to threat and data breach.
ZyXEL’s new ZyWALL Series VPN Firewalls are business-grade VPN gateways purpose-built to deliver the fastest performance for multi-site VPN deployments. These high performance VPN Firewalls feature multi-core CPUs and are fine-tuned to deliver ultra-fast performance with up to 3.6 Gbps firewall and 800 Mbps VPN throughputs. The new ZyWALL Series VPN Firewalls also feature the most advanced VPN functionality—SHA-2 encryption, VPN HA and L2TP—for more secure, more reliable and more mobile VPN connectivity.
Best-in-class VPN and firewall throughput
The new ZyWALL Series VPN Firewalls are designed with multi-core CPUs to deliver the fastest VPN and firewall performance on the market. High-speed networking performance is guaranteed with up to 3.6 Gbps firewall throughput and 800 Mbps VPN throughput—up to 9x the firewall performance and 4.4x the VPN performance of preceding models. Designed with completely new and advanced hardware platforms, the new ZyWALL Series VPN Firewalls deliver uncompromising performance for high-speed site-to-site and client-to-site VPN applications.
Safer, more reliable VPN connections
Faster processors today have greatly boosted the capabilities of attackers to decrypt VPN tunnels. Legacy VPN encryption algorithms like Message Digest 5 (MD5) and Secure Hash Algorithm 1 (SHA-1) are no longer sufficient to guarantee secured external communications. Supporting the more advanced Secure Hash Algorithm 2 (SHA-2), the ZyWALL Series provides the safest VPN connections in its class and ensures maximum security for business communications.
The complete range of ZyWALL Series VPN Firewalls deliver reliable, non-stop VPN services with dual-WAN failover and fallback support. With two WAN connections—one primary and one for redundancy—the ZyWALL VPN Firewall automatically switches to the backup connection should the primary link fail, and automatically switches back to the primary connection once it is back online.
Unlimited business mobility
To support dynamic, mobile business operations in today’s BYOD (bring your own device) business environment, the ZyWALL Series VPN Firewalls offer unlimited business mobility with Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) VPN for mobile devices. The ZyWALL Series supports L2TP VPN on a wide variety of mobile Internet devices running the iOS, Android and Windows mobile platforms.
Zero-configuration remote access
Virtual private networks provide businesses a secure and convenient way of sharing company resources with partners, customers, or employees on business trips. Yet typical VPN solutions are hard for non-technical users to configure, which greatly reduces their usability and convenience. The ZyWALL Series VPN Firewalls feature Easy VPN to provide auto-provisioned client-to-site IPsec VPN setup. A wizard is available with the ZyXEL IPsec VPN client software that automatically retrieves the VPN configuration file from the remote ZyWALL VPN Firewall and completes the IPsec VPN setup in 3 simple steps. ZyXEL’s Easy VPN lowers administration effort and allows partner, customers, or traveling employees to access company servers, email, or data centers easily and securely.
