The D-Link DFL-260E NetDefend Unified Threat Management (UTM) firewall is a powerful security solution designed to protect the small to mid-sized businesses from a wide variety of network threats. The firewall provides integrated policy-based routing, Network Address Translation (NAT), Virtual Private Network (VPN), proactive network security, Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), Web Content Filtering (WCF), Anti-Virus (AV) Protection, traffic load balancing and bandwidth management, all in one rack-mountable (1U) chassis that can be easily integrated into existing network.
Enterprise-Class Firewall Security NetDefend UTM firewalls provide complete advanced security features to manage, monitor and maintain a healthy and secure network. Network management features include: Remote Management, Bandwidth Control Policies, URL/Keyword Blocking, Access Policies and SNMP. For network monitoring, the firewall supports e-mail alerts, system log, consistency checks and real-time statistics. Powerful VPN Performance For optimal VPN configuration, the NetDefend UTM firewalls offer an integrated VPN Client and Server to support almost any required VPN policy. This allows a remote office to securely connect to a head office or a trusted partner network, while mobile users working from home or at other places can also safely connect to the office network to access company data and access e-mail. NetDefend UTM firewalls have hardware-based VPN engines to support and manage a large number of VPN configurations. They support IPSec, SSL, PPTP, and L2TP protocols in Client/Server mode (SSL in Server mode only) and can handle pass-through traffic as well. Advanced VPN configuration options include: DES/3DES/AES/Twofish/Blowfish/CAST-128 encryption, Manual or IKE/ISAKMP key management, Quick/Main/Aggressive Negotiation modes, and VPN authentication support using either an external RADIUS server or a large user database.
Unified Threat Management NetDefend UTM firewalls integrate an Intrusion Detection and Prevention System (IDP/IPS), gateway Anti-Virus (AV) and Content Filtering/Web URL Filtering for superior Layer 7 content inspection protection. They use a hardware accelerator approach to increase IPS and AV throughput, and a web surfing control database containing millions of URLs for Web Content Filtering (WCF). IPS, Anti-Virus and URL database real-time update services protect the office network from application exploits, network worms, malicious code attacks, and provide everything a business needs to manage employee Internet access behaviour.
UTM Services Maintaining an effective defence against the various threats originating from the Internet requires that all three databases used by the firewalls are kept up-to-date. In order to provide a robust defence, D-Link offers optional NetDefend Firewall UTM Services subscriptions which include distinct NetDefend service updates for each aspect of defences: IPS, Anti-Virus and WCF. NetDefend UTM Subscription ensures that each of the firewall’s service databases is always accurate and current.
Robust Intrusion Prevention NetDefend UTM firewalls adopt a unique IPS technology – component-based signatures, which are built to recognize and protect against all varieties of known and unknown attacks, and which can address all critical aspects of an attack or potential attack including payload, NOP sled, infection, and exploits. In terms of signature coverage, the IPS database includes attack information and data from a global attack sensor-grid and exploits collected from public sites such as the National Vulnerability Database and Bugtrax. NetDefend UTM firewalls deliver high quality IPS signatures by constantly creating and optimizing NetDefend signatures via the D-Link Auto-Signature Sensor System. Without overloading existing security appliances, these signatures ensure a high ratio of detection accuracy and the lowest ratio of false positives.
Stream-Based Virus Scanning NetDefend UTM firewalls scan files of any sizes, using the stream-based virus scanning technology that does away with caching of incoming files. This scanning method increases inspection performance while eliminating network bottlenecks. The firewalls use virus signatures from the known, respected antivirus company Kaspersky Labs to provide users with reliable and accurate antivirus signatures, as well as prompt signature updates. Viruses and malware consequently can be effectively blocked before they reach the network’s desktops or mobile devices.
Hardware Accelerator Equipped with hardware accelerators, NetDefend UTM firewalls can carry out IPS, Anti-Virus scanning functions simultaneously without degrading firewall and VPN performance. These powerful accelerators allow the firewall to perform with a much higher throughput than other antivirus-capable UTM firewalls on the market.
NetDefend UTM Subscription The optional NetDefend UTM (Unified Threat Management) Subscription provides your security appliances with UTM services for 12 months (3 months trial is also available) starting from the day you activate or extend your service. Your NetDefend UTM Subscription can be renewed regularly to provide your security devices with important updates and your network with the most up-to-date security service available from D-Link.
