By placing a firewall between your local network (LAN/WLAN) and the Internet, you can make it very hard for hackers to gain access to your local network. That is, if you have configured your firewall correctly. This can be especially important for businesses and people with sensitive information on their computer systems. A very neat function most hardware firewalls have is the ability to securely connect the local area network to other local area networks in different locations over the Internet, thus creating a Virtual Private Network (VPN). With VPN you can safely share network resources with remote offices or play games with your friends as if you were on the same LAN!

The official marketing text of Netgear ProSafe VPN Firewall 50 & 8x 10/100 Switching Ports Firewall (Hardware) as supplied by the manufacturer

The FVS338 VPN Firewall Router is ideal for small to mid sized businesses looking to secure an office network with an upgradeable VPN Firewall that integrates multiple security capabilities for total protection.

Connectivity & Management
The FVS338 VPN Firewall Router features 8 x 10/100 switch ports with auto-sensing and Auto Uplink™ to auto detect speed, duplex & cable type. The FVS338 also uses NAT routing technology, enabling up to 253 LAN users to share one IP address assigned by your Internet Service Provider (ISP). The FVS338 also supports SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol), use it with any SNMP-based management software including NETGEAR’s NMS100 ProSafe™ Network Management Software. The FVS338 Firewall also comes with connection insurance: A built-in serial port for dial-up access should your broadband connection fail.

Private, Secure Business Communication
The FVS338 Firewall is an ideal choice for growing businesses that are concerned about security breeches that can either expose sensitive information or cause network downtime. High on security this true firewall provides Denial of Service (DoS) protection and Intrusion Detection using Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI). The FVS338 will protect your business against DoS attacks such as Ping of Death, SYN Flood, Land Attacks, IP Spoofing, tear drop, and many more. Keyword content filtering allows you to control Web access and block unacceptable sites. Logging, reporting, and real-time notification alert you to problems or attacks.

The FVS338 Firewall Router ensures communication between multiple office locations remains private with up to 50 simultaneous Virtual Private Network (VPN) connections (security associations) using secure Public Key Infrastructure (PKI). All data traffic between business locations is encrypted using DES, 3DES, or 256-bit AES. The FVS338 also supports IPSec, PPTP, L2TP and VPN pass-through functionality for use as part of a client-based remote connection to a larger enterprise VPN. Centralised management of a distributed workforce is possible with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) enabling secure remote management capabilities. In summary the FVS338 is an excellent alternative to more expensive and hard-to-deploy non-routing firewall ‘appliances’.

Unified Threat Management (UTM)
Trend Micro’s new anti-virus/anti-spam software has been integrated with NETGEAR’s FVX538 & FVS338 ProSafe VPN Firewalls, empowering small business owners to deploy and manage an effective anti-virus strategy with limited IT investment. This new Unified Threat Management (UTM) software can automatically deploy virus pattern, scan engine, and software patch updates to networked computers and acts as a single point of management, thus reducing maintenance efforts. Built-in system cleaning and restoration capabilities further extend your customer’s security investment, eliminating downtime and costly clean- up should your network become threatened. The FVS338 is bundled with a 60 day trial version of Trend Micro’s Client/Server and Client/Server/Messaging Suite for Small and Medium Business.

Easy to Set-up & Interoperable
NETGEAR’s Smart Wizard™ connects to your ISP quickly, and the easy-to-use Web-based configuration screen and Install Assistant reduce set-up time. The VPN Wizard capability makes setting up secure, remote connections easy. The FVS338 VPN Firewall is VPNC compliance and compatible with all major VPNC certified devices and standards-based IPSec Client software, including NETGEAR’s ProSafe VPN Client Software. Support for DHCP (client and server) as well as PPPoE allows for easy, widespread deployment, whilst Auto Uplink™ on the LAN ports eliminates the need for crossover cables.
