As an Information Technology manager who is in charge of the availability, the confidentiality, and the integrity of your small business information system – you should build a high performance and secure network infrastructure. To build a secure network infrastructure you should have a strong security protection in the entry point of the internet by implementing the UTM appliance.

UTM ( Unified Threat Management) appliance is a very essential device in protecting your network environment against any types of emerging internet threats which always evolve to get smarter in penetrating your system vulnerabilities which cannot be just blocked by layer-2 and layer-3 devices such as traditional router / firewall. Your system must be able to scan deep up to the application layer.

The other important system you need to have for your small business network infrastructure is the capability of creating the secure tunnels for remote sites or travelling users to your internal network through the internet as if they work locally in the office. With the limitation of the personnel experts in networking and security, you have lots of works to do. But with all-in-one UTM security appliance you can build a secure small business network easily. Consider D-Link NetDefend DFL-860 – a single solution for UTM and VPN firewall appliance.

What this Product Does

DFL-860 UTM Security appliance is an all in one device – a core device for building secure network infrastructure in protecting your small business against any emerging internet threats. The device includes two WAN Ethernet ports for load balance internet connection or failover when the primary connection fails. For your small business, you can subscribe broadband internet plans both cable and DSL for load balance or fail-over. The DFL-860 also includes one DMZ port to allow you setup a security boundary when you require hosting a public resource such as a Web or FTP server.

VPN Supports

The DFL-860 includes integrated Virtual Private Network (VPN) client and server to allow remote sites or traveler users to create secure tunneling to connect to your private network via the internet. With secure tunneling they can access the office network resources such as email, files, or application via the internet as if they were connected locally. The firewall supports the IPSec, PPTP, and L2TP protocols and if you have external RADIUS server, you can use the RADIUS for VPN authentication.

Advanced Security

The D-Link DFL-860 NetDefend UTM firewall security appliance provides a complete security features and allow you manage the bandwidth, the URL filtering, access policies, and network monitoring including email-alerts, system logs, and real-time statistic and the good thing is that you can manage remotely.

Unlike traditional router / firewall, the DFL-860 includes a high-performance threats management to scan the internet packets deep into up to the layer-7 (application layer) including the IPS (intrusion prevention system), gateway antivirus, and up-to-date content filtering services. This will assure a clean network against any types of Internet threats.

To defend your system against the viruses, the DFL-860 uses stream-based virus scanning technology to help you reduce network bottleneck and the virus signature from Kaspersky Labs. To help you filter the Web for clean internet, the device includes the web content-filtering services by implementing multiple global index servers and updated in a real-time.

Unfortunately, those update services to assure your secure network is not free. You have to spend lots of bucks for security trade off. Security is not free, it's very expensive but it is worth for protecting your valuable information assets.
