Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
The ProSafe 802.11n Wireless-N VPN Firewall aims to combine wireless and wired security into a single package that brings high-speed access and management ease to the SMB office, while challenging SonicWall’s dominance.
NetGear’s SRXN3205 offers all the features a typical small business would need for setting up SSL VPN access and supporting wireless clients. The 802.11n wireless offers good range, speeds about four times faster than 802.11g, and an additional layer of security, thanks to the SSL VPN. The unit also offers all the features one would find in the typical small office/home office wireless router.
Simply put, those looking to combine wireless, a SPI firewall, SSL VPN and a multitude of other connectivity features need to look no further than the SRXN3205. The unit delivers all that for just a few dollars more than the ubiquitous consumer home wireless router, and offers additional integration opportunities for solution providers looking to build remote access solutions for their customers. While the SRXN3205 may not offer everything one may find in a SonicWall or F5 Networks business-level product, the SRXN3205 may be all that the typical single-site small business needs.
