For businesses that require more than just a simple NAT router, the FVG318 offers significantly more protection. It provides: a Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) firewall to prevent Denial of Service attacks, an Intrusion Detection System (IDS), the ability to block Java/URL/ActiveX based on extension, and FTP/SMTP/RPC program filtering.
The FVG318 has eight dedicated VPN tunnels to protect links between remote locations, encrypting the data between them. IPSec-based 256-bit encryption is also supported.
The wireless network is protected by Wi-Fi Protect Access 2 Enterprise (WPA2), the highest available industry-standard encryption. Specific addresses, services, protocols, ports, and URLs can be filtered or block for further security.
Even with all the functionality the FVG318 provides, NETGEAR makes setup a breeze with intuitive Smart Wizards. Additionally, SNMP support provides complete remote administration. The FVG318 would be an ideal foundation for a small network, but it also works well integrated into an existing larger one. DHCP and PPPoE support makes widespread deployment simple.
The NETGEAR FVG318 ProSafe 802.11G Wireless VPN Firewall 8 is backed by a 3-year warranty.
