D-Link Australia and New Zealand managing director, Domenic Torre, announced the appointment of former Symantec Norton anti-virus team retail sales manager, Mary Georgievski, as consumer sales manager for ANZ. Georgievski also worked for IT distributor, Ingram Micro.

According to Georgievski, D-Link’s consumer business is tracking “relatively strong at the moment,” and she says, “while the retail market is a little tough, as evidenced by the number of special deals on offer, we are in a stronger position than most other suppliers.”

“With the whole move to digital convergence people are still buying new hardware devices like tablets, media players and smart TVs. And these devices rely on the seamless end-to-end connectivity solutions — such as wireless routers and PowerLine AV products — that D-Link provides.”

Georgievski says that while D-Link is best known for networking products, the company has also moved into the entertainment business, with products like the Boxee Box media streaming device helping to “enrich the digital experience for consumers.”

Based at D-Link’s ANZ Sydney headquarters, Georgievski reports to managing director, Domenic Torre, who said Georgievski’s appointment would ensure the company maintained a “strong level of engagement with all our key retail and distribution partners.”

Intrusion Protection System and Web Content Filtering constantly updated by D-Link’s global sensor grid with Kaspersky Labs providing anti-virus signatures.

SYDNEY, Aust. — August 8, 2011

D-Link Australia & New Zealand, the end-to-end networking solutions provider for business and consumers, today introduced the DFL-260E NetDefend™ Unified Threat Management (UTM) Firewall, providing small to mid-sized businesses with comprehensive defence against virus attacks, unauthorised intrusions and harmful content.

The D-Link DFL-260E is the latest addition to D-Link’s NetDefend UTM Firewall family designed to protect small to mid-sized businesses (SMBs) from a wide variety of network threats. It includes the same comprehensive security features as the DFL-860E NetDefend™ UTM Firewall released earlier this year but with capacities and pricing to suit smaller businesses.

D-Link DFL-260E

The new UTM firewall provides integrated policy-based routing, Network Address Translation, Virtual Private Network (VPN), proactive network security, Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), Web Content Filtering, Anti-Virus Protection, traffic load balancing and bandwidth management in one rack-mountable chassis.

The firewall’s hardware is designed to increase performance, and a web surfing control database contains millions of URLs for Web Content Filtering. Real-time IPS, anti-virus and URL database update services protect the network from application exploits, network worms, malicious code attacks, and provide everything needed to manage employee Internet access behaviour.

The DFL-260E’s 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.

Maintaining an effective defence requires that all three databases used by the UTM firewall are kept up to date. To provide a robust defence, D-Link offers optional 12-month NetDefend Firewall UTM Services subscriptions which include distinct NetDefend service updates for IPS, Anti-Virus and Web Content Filtering (free three-month trials are also available).

Delivering better connectivity, security, efficiency and value, as well as IP surveillance cameras, D-Link provides network solutions for the implementation of any IP surveillance project. The company also manufactures switches, storage devices, network security and wireless products. D-Link’s range is now available through Norbain.

D-Link were one of the first manufacturers to recognise the need for more energy-efficient switches. Cutting power consumption without sacrificing performance, D-Link’s ‘Green’ products use fan-less technology that saves energy and reduces failure rates, and feature ‘intelligent’ ports that ration power to where it’s most needed.

Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) switches offer unparalleled flexibility and value by delivering power via connecting Ethernet cables to devices such as Access Points, VoIP phones or IP cameras; useful for where power sockets are either unavailable or inconvenient to install.

D-Link offers a wide portfolio of Storage solutions; from easy to manage Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices, to high-performance, high-capacity Storage Area Network (SAN) solutions. Cost-effective, they provide centralised data storage accessible from multiple locations on the network or over the Internet.

D-Link’s latest generation of Wireless N products provide bandwidth and transfer speeds comparable to their wired equivalents. Robust enough to be deployed at the very core of a network, they give greatly enhanced reliability and coverage, and include advanced security features to keep organisations safe from intrusion.

D-Link’s range of NetDefend Network Security products provides an all-in-one security package; protecting against viruses, preventing intrusion and filtering content. They can stop access to blacklisted websites, monitor instant messaging and protect remote workers while cutting the time-cost of security management.

Applying their 25 years of networking expertise, D-Link has developed a wide choice of IP Cameras that cater for the needs of any business. Using advanced technology, D-Link IP cameras produce high-resolution images and work in the dimmest of light conditions. They can send instant intrusion warnings 24/7 to a PC, smart phone or any web-enabled device.

“From start-ups through to multi-site operations, D-Link’s broad range of innovative technology offers customisable and flexible solutions,” says Buzz Coates, Norbain’s Divisional Director Branded CCTV. “Whether starting from scratch, extending an existing IP network or upgrading from an analogue installation, D-Link’s networked systems can help installers achieve maximum value with the minimum of cost.”
