Netgear on Monday announced the availability of its ProSafe 8-Port VPN Firewall (model FVS318G). It’s priced at $139.
The new firewall also employs a software-configurable hardware DMZ port to help facilitate a server connection or another connection for a device on the network that remote users need to access.
Other features include Network Address Translation (NAT) routing and “classical” routing, support for up to five simultaneous IPsec VPN tunnels, Denial of Service (DoS) attack protection and multiple VPN passthroughs. It integrates with network monitoring software and products using SNMP, features IKE authentication, e-mail reporting and more.
The ProSafe Control Center configuration screen and install assistant is Web-based, and the device is compatible with Mac OS X, Windows, Linux and Unix operating systems.
