ZyXEL Introduces New ZyWALL Series for Best-in-Class Firewall and VPN Performance

Provide SMBs With Ultra-Fast Throughput and Non-Stop, Reliable Connectivity

ANAHEIM, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 25, 2013) - ZyXEL Communications, a leading provider of secure broadband networking, Internet access, connected home and routing products, today introduced a new ZyWALL series of ultra-fast gigabit firewall / VPN devices with multi-core processor, advanced VPN encryption and high availability features for small and medium size businesses (SMBs).

The rapid adoption of cloud computing and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies within SMBs is driving the need for constant, high throughput connections to the Internet. As the number of devices accessing information across company firewalls increases, businesses require robust security solutions that don't create network bottlenecks. ZyXEL's three new ultra-fast firewall / VPN gateways empower SMBs to directly address these challenges, offering enhanced security features without compromising performance. Top features include:

  • Powered by multi-core CPUs, the new ZyWALL series can deliver up to 3.6 Gbps firewall and 800 Mbps VPN throughputs to meet the need for faster network performance
  • The new ZyWALL series features SHA-2 -- one of the most advanced VPN encryption technologies available -- to assure optimal connection safety
  • In order to deliver non-stop and reliable Internet connectivity and VPN service, the new ZyWALL Series also offers dual-WAN connection with failover and fallback support; when the primary link fails, the ZyWALL VPN firewall automatically switches to the backup connection. Likewise, when the primary connection is back online, it automatically switches back
  • To address the security challenges of BYOD, the new ZyWALL devices offer secure Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) VPN connectivity with mobile devices running iOS, Android, and Windows mobile platforms 
  • The new ZyWALL series provide auto-provisioned client-to-site IPsec VPN setup. The simple, zero configuration remote access mechanism is very user friendly and easy to operate

"ZyXEL's latest line of ultra-fast firewall / VPN devices address an SMB's demand for secure, non-stop access to high speed Internet," said Steven Joe, executive vice president for channel business for the Americas at ZyXEL. "Our channel partners will be pleased with the performance and value these devices will help them deliver to their customers."
