ZyXEL meets growing demand for high-performance VPNs with ZyWALL range

High-performance firewall appliances provide the ideal solution for SMBs and branch offices looking to take advantage of new fibre-based broadband connectivity options


ZyXEL Communications, a leading supplier of networking and communications solutions, has launched a new range of dedicated firewall security appliances designed to meet the growing demand for high-performance virtual private networks (VPNs). 

The new ZyWALL 110, 310 and 1100 VPN Firewalls offer outstanding capabilities, making use of an accelerated architecture with four- and six-core CPUs to deliver the highest levels of performance. Supporting firewall throughput at speeds of up to 3.6Gbps and VPN connections of up to 800Mbps, they are ideal for use by small businesses or branch offices that need to establish multiple secure remote connections on a frequent basis. 

A key feature of the new appliances is the inclusion of the advanced Secure Hash Algorithm 2 (SHA-2), providing the safest IP-Sec VPN connections currently available on this class of security appliance. The company has launched this next-generation, multi-core range of firewall appliances in response to growing demand for devices that support high-speed, secure remote connections, says Martin Bratičák, Head of Channel CEE at ZyXEL. 

“With many more users now working remotely on a frequent basis and small businesses looking to take advantage of fibre-based VDSL connectivity, demand for security devices that provide really fast, totally safe and reliable VPN connections has been growing. With our new ZyWALL VPN appliances, customers can be assured of getting the very best performance, without any limitations or bottlenecks. As ever, ZyXEL is responding to the needs of the market and making the best use of current technology to deliver the solutions that customers need, right now.” 

Support for Secure Hash Algorithm 2, is highly significant, he notes. “SHA-2 is the strongest cryptographic algorithm available and thus ensures that remote connections are entirely trustworthy and secure, which is exactly what customers want from a firewall. The new ZyWALL appliances are therefore perfect for businesses that do not require the full capabilities of a unified threat gateway, but do want to ensure maximum security, performance and productivity for remote users.” 

Customers will be able to upgrade from the new ZyWALL VPN Firewalls to the company’s forthcoming line of fully-functioning UTM devices, which it expects to launch in the second quarter of 2014. Resellers will be able to take advantage of a special introductory offer on demonstration units. Like all ZyXEL appliances the ZyWALL VPN Firewalls come with a five-year warranty cover and all firmware upgrades are provided free of charge. 

Three models are available in the ZyWALL VPN range:

  • The entry-level ZyWALL 110 offers firewall throughput of up to 1Gbps and 300Mbps performance for IPSec VPNs using standard AES encryption. It will support up to 50 VPN tunnels.
  • The mid-range ZyWALL 310 supports firewall speeds of up to 2Gbps and 500Mbps VPN throughput on up to 200 connections.
  • The ZyWALL 1100 offers maximum firewall performance of up to 3.6Gbps and 800Mbps VPN speeds, with support for up to 1000 IPSec tunnels.
