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™ Unified Threat Management ( ) , providing small to mid-sized businesses with comprehensive defence against virus attacks, unauthorised intrusions and harmful content.
The D-Linkis the latest addition to D-Link’s 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.
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).
