ZyXEL Expands Next-Gen UTM Firewall Line with New Extreme Series

New offering includes enterprise-class security features, high throughput, integrated WLAN management, and multiple high availability features for the “always on” business network.

ZyXEL Communications, a provider of secure broadband networking, Internet access, connected home, and routing products, has introduced its Extreme Series of next-gen UTM firewall gateways: The USG1100 and USG1900. In addition to firewall throughput ranging from 6 – 7 gigabits-per-second (Gbps), the Extreme Series provides security services, integrated WLAN management, and multiple high availability features for the always-on business network.

ZyXEL USG1100 and USG1900 features anti-malware technology, as well as granular application control to counter the major threats that businesses face today. The UTM firewall gateways also facilitate set-up of secure VPN connectivity to mobile devices.

“The all-in-one, Extreme Series UTMs address all the demands of today’s mid-size business network including super high throughput, secure mobile connectivity, application control, integrated Wi-Fi management and always-on reliability, which is critical for cloud services,” says Steven Joe, executive vice president for channel business for Americas at ZyXEL.

Features for ZyXEL’s new Extreme Series UTMs include:

  • Gigabit throughput: Multi-core high frequency CPUs maintain peak performance, while allowing various security services to operate in the background. A multi-core processer enables the USG series to meet growing demand for high bandwidth applications.
  • Unified management interface: A redesigned management†portal consolidates all security policies in a single location. The unified management interface offers single point†of control for firewall, IDP, anti-virus, content filtering, and†application control.
  • Application intelligence: Identifies, categorizes, and controls†over 3,000 social, gaming, productivity, and other Web applications and†behaviors to boost productivity and prevent bandwidth abuse.
  • Integrated†WLAN controller: A built in WLAN controller to meet the growing demand for secure Wi-Fi†networks.
  • SSL inspection: Provides deep packet inspection for SSL traffic.
  • High†availability: Mission-critical network and VPN deployments get always-on†connectivity by a three-tier high availability design — multi-WAN, VPN HA,†and device HA.
  • Integrated Vantage Report: Vantage Report delivers extensive reporting,†visibility, and manageability to ensure security policies and bandwidth usage are adequately optimized to business demands.
  • Security: Services provided by Kaspersky (Anti-Virus),†Cyren (Content Filtering and Anti-Spam), and TrendMicro (IDP and†Application Control).

Device registration, service activation, and license management is accessible through the portal.
