The NETGEAR ProSECURE® UTM series of all-in-one next-generation firewalls combine an advanced application firewall with best-of-breed enterprise-strength security technologies such as anti-virus, anti-spam, Web filtering, and intrusion prevention (IPS) to protect businesses against today’s application, Web, email, and network threats.
ProSECURE® UTM firewalls bring advanced network security technologies to small and medium businesses and remote/branch offices. Traditional firewalls can only block/accept traffic based on IP addresses and ports and offer little protection outside of that. This approach is quickly becoming obsolete in today’s Internet where many applications send/receive traffic over ports that are typically allowed by traditional firewalls. The built-in application firewall of the UTM overcomes the limitations of yesterday’s firewall and allows the UTM to monitor, control, and block hundreds of applications such as Skype, Facebook, BitTorrent®, and Yahoo! Messenger; helping enhance employee productivity and enforce network usage policies. The UTM application firewall combined with best-of-breed anti-virus, Web filter, and anti-spam technologies along with IPS and VPN functionality, form the ideal firewall for today’s businesses.
Given the high performance requirements of virus scanning, protecting latency sensitive Web traffic has often been a very difficult task using traditional anti-virus scanning methods. Attempting to scan viruses on legacy firewall platforms can slow network traffic to a crawl. This exposes an entire vector of the network to malware-based attacks. ProSECURE® UTMs feature patented Stream Scanning Technology which analyses data streams as they enter the network. This significantly reduces latency and in conjunction with a cloud-based anti-virus library with over 45 million signatures, offers an unprecedented combination of speed and coverage.
ProSECURE® UTM Firewalls provide secure remote access for offsite employees to the network by offering multiple types of virtual private network (VPN) tunnels. IT administrators have the option to setup SSL, IPSec, PPTP, and L2TP VPNs. SSL VPN tunnels provide clientless remote access to your corporate data for individual access anywhere and anytime while IPSec VPN tunnels provide both secure site-to-site tunnels and legacy support for client-based remote access.
The ProSECURE® UTM will easily replace any existing firewall or router. A simple 10-step setup wizard guides you through installation and the UTM will be up and protecting your network in minutes. Administration is performed through an intuitive Web-based interface. Set granular policies and alerts, check summary statistics and graphical reports, drill down to IP address-level data, and integrate log data with standard network management tools using SNMP. Virus, application, and IPS signatures are all handled by the UTM - online and automatically – making it ideal for networks with little to no IT resources.
Web-based threats are an exponentially growing problem, with new threat types and attack vectors continuously emerging at pace of over a threat per second. As a result, IT managers must develop comprehensive security measures which consider the wide array of threats.
Protect Your Business Networks: The ProSecure™ security appliances use a best-of-breed security architecture to protect business networks from viruses, worms, spyware, trojans, rootkits, keyloggers, and other Internet-based threats - without impacting network productivity. All inbound and outbound content over HTTP, HTTPS (secure HTTP), and FTP is inspected for millions of known threats and unknown threats, proactively discovering and blocking threats to the network.
Stream Scanning Technology: Instrumental to ProSecure™ security appliances, the patented Stream Scanning Technology scans data streams as they enter the network, rather than waiting for the entire communication to download before a scan can be performed. This enables the ProSecure appliance to process large amounts of data quickly, using a single scan to stop malware at the gateway before it infiltrates the network.
Hybrid In-the-Cloud Distributed Web Analysis Technology: ProSecure™ security appliances employ NETGEAR Hybrid In-the-Cloud Distributed Web Analysis technology to filter malicious and unwanted URLs. With a virtually limitless master database of over 100 million URLs located in the cloud divided into 64 categories, data feeds from HTTP connectors deployed "in the cloud" at service providers throughout the world are analyzed and categorized by the NETGEAR URL Classification Center in real-time. The NETGEAR® Distributed Web Analysis URL filtering engine automatically self adapts and categorizes new URLs that have previously been unknown – unlike less effective approaches that force administrators to manually "submit" new entries one by one. The Distributed Web Analysis not only blocks access to unwanted sites, but also blocks sites containing malware and other security threats.
The ProSECURE® UTM Firewalls utilize a best-of-breed solution to proactively protect users and IT infrastructure from spam and Email-borne threats. While traditional spam filtering techniques limit their search to specific header content that is often useless against most new threats, the UTM detects and blocks outbreaks in real time, based on their rapid and wide distribution behavior.
The NETGEAR® in-the-cloud Distributed Spam Analysis architecture continuously gathers data from more than 50 million sources from around the world. Using this information, it accurately assesses an Email's legitimacy in real-time by analyzing its distribution patterns, rather than its header information. Once an Email is classified as spam, the scanner assigns it a signature and immediately generates a corresponding pattern file - effectively stopping an outbreak before it becomes widespread.
The benefits of the NETGEAR UTM Distributed Spam Analysis architecture include:
High Detection Rate – blocking upwards of 97% of spam
Effectiveness against all spam – including double-byte languages and image-based spam
Low False Positives – Less than 1 in 1.5 million reported false positive
ProSecure UTM appliances include firewall functionality that deploys an array of network security technologies such as stateful packet inspection (SPI), Intrusion prevention (IPS), and denial-of-service (DoS) protection to protect the network from threats such as hackers, port scans, DoS attacks, and TCP/UDP floods.
The ProSecure UTM's network intrusion prevention and detection system utilizes a rule-driven language, which combines the benefits of signature, protocol and anomaly based inspection methods, preventing hackers from penetrating the network perimeter. IPS is not only important, but a necessity for any network security architecture.
The IPS engine performs protocol analysis, content searching/matching, and can also block or passively detect a variety of attacks and probes, such as buffer overflows, stealth port scans, web application attacks, and SQL injections amongst other attacks. Attacks are dropped as they are taking place.
In addition to protecting the network from outside threats, enforcing company network usage policies can prevent internal users from pulling in threats due to misuse. The ProSecure UTM's application controls can be used t block access to public IM clients such as Yahoo!® Messenger, MIRC, and MSN® Messenger and save bandwidth by blocking peer-to-peer (P2P) clients like BitTorrent, eDonkey, and Gnutella.
The ProSecure® UTM appliance with SSL & IPsec VPN offers the best of both worlds by offering two types of virtual private network (VPN) tunnels, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and IP security (IPsec), for optimal secure connection to your network. SSL VPN tunnels provide clientless remote access to your corporate data for individual access anywhere and anytime while IPsec VPN tunnels provide both secure site-to-site tunnels and legacy support for client-based remote access.
The ProSecure UTM appliance enables easy, secure and cost-effective clientless remote access for any employee without complicated installations or PC administrative access. VPN tunnel protocol redirection enables users with administrative access to their PCs to:
Use any application on their corporate PC
No need to install, configure, and maintain IPsec software clients on corporate PCs
Freedom from complex network limitations associated with IPsec such as NAT Traversal, multiple PCs from one public NAT address, etc.
Freedom to access VPNs from any PC with a browser
Use only a browser to connect – no software installation necessary
Securely connect through a dissolvable Java/ActiveX agent
Working Remotely via SSL VPN Tunnel Protocol Redirection: Because corporate laptops are already loaded with the applications employees need to do their jobs, they require full corporate network access for file sharing and email connectivity. The ProSecure UTM appliance is able to connect to the corporate network using VPN tunneling, enabling users to securely and privately transfer information.
