Network Security

Sea-Net in partnership with Zyxel Powerful, Robust Anti-malware Protection for Medium- to Large-sized Businesses

As business grows and network expands, more and more users and devices as well as new applications like cloud-based services would join the network. It means that high network availability for sustainable business, more workplace Wi-Fi and up-to-date regulations for application usages are eagerly needed. Without an effective solution to control, optimize or block social and some other Web applications, businesses would risk not only losing productivity but also exposing company network to new threats.

The new ZyXEL USG Extreme Series are Next Generation Firewalls (NGFW) designed to deliver high availability, anti-malware protection and consolidated policy enforcement for medium-to large-sized businesses and campuses. The ZyXEL USGs provides WAN and VPN load balancing and failover ensures nonstop business communications, while incorporating bestin-breed anti-virus, anti-spam, content filtering and application intelligence technology for effective application optimization and comprehensive network protection.

Powerful and Robust

ZyXEL’s USG Extreme Series is built on a powerful multi-core platform to deliver high performance that helps growing businesses to overcome challenges during the expansion. In order to satisfy the needs for always-online communications, the Series features multi-WAN load balancing/failover and a comprehensive mobile broadband USB modem support list for WAN backup operations. In addition, the Series supports IPSec load balancing and failover to provide additional resiliency for the most missioncritical VPN deployments.

Protection and optimization

The ZyXEL USG Extreme Series provides extensive anti-malware protection and effective control of Web applications—like Facebook, Google Apps and Netflix—with industry-leading firewall, anti-virus, anti-spam, content filtering, IDP and application intelligence. These security measures are enhanced with SSL inspection, which helps block threats that are hidden in SSL encrypted connections and facilitates deeper policy enforcement.

Streamlined management

Unified security policy streamlines the configuration of firewall and every security feature to offer faster, easier and more consistent policy management. From a single interface, users can apply all policy criteria to every UTM feature with reduced complexity. The integrated WLAN controller also enables users to management up to 18 APs from a centralized user interface.

Best TCO for Wi-Fi Expansion

Addressing the connectivity needs in the BYOD trend, the ZyXEL USG Extreme Series helps businesses deploying or expanding a managed Wi-Fi network with minimized efforts. Integrated with ZyXEL AP Controller technology, the Series enables businesses to easily scale up the WLAN and to provide seamless Wi-Fi coverage in places like meeting rooms and guest reception areas.
