Next-Generation Stateful Firewall

  • The next evolution in network security capable of monitoring and detecting states of all the traffic on your network.
  • The DMZ connects hosts and provides an interface to an untrusted external network while keeping the internal, private network separated and isolated.
  • Voice, video, and data traffic are distinguished and are restricted/blocked based on source, destination addresses, or other static values.
  • A Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) automatically assigns IP addresses and other communication parameters to customer devices connected to the network
  • A static Wide Area Network (WAN) IP address makes it easier to use Voice or Internet Protocol (VoIP) for teleconferencing or other voice and video communications.
  • Port forwarding/NAT services protect servers and clients from unwanted access
  • A virtual local area network (VLAN) allows different computers and devices to be connected virtually to each other, allowing you to segment a larger network into smaller segments.
