ZyXEL's powerful devices are ideal for securing networks in organizations with up to 1000 employees. In today's world of growing security threats, it is essential that critical business data are protected at all times.

With speed and mobility of Internet connectivity revolutionizing the way we do business, security in small and medium-sized enterprises is becoming ever more important. Super-fast broadband connectivity, fiber networks and smart mobile devices supporting 3G and 4G data rates all require much higher performance levels. Connectivity that is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week has now become indispensable for doing business successfully. However, the benefits of a fast, always-on connection come hand in hand with an unprecedented increase in vulnerability as businesses face a growing number of security threats. Malicious applications, denial-of-service (DoS) attacks, spyware and malware all place a heavy burden on SMBs. Data leaks, data destruction as well as network downtime can have a massive impact on productivity, customer service and ultimately on business reputation and profitability.

Security can be achieved whatever the size of your business and whatever your budget – in every case a robust, reliable and comprehensive security solution is needed. ZyXEL offers security products that are affordable and flexible – and fully safeguard your business assets without creating a management burden. Unified Threat Management (UTM) firewalls provide a range of options to suit every office size. They deliver simple and efficient management, maximum network availability and all the cutting-edge features used by next-generation firewalls to stop threats before they can enter the network. Moreover, they save the costs that the business would otherwise incur purchasing standalone security devices.

UTM products are application aware, and combine a firewall, antivirus, intrusion detection and prevention as well as VPN capabilities in a single box with unified management. Precisely because they are application aware, they not only protect your network from external threats, but also from internal network misuse and abuse by controlling access to instant messaging, peer-to-peer networking and social networking sites. UTM devices offer a simplified, all-in-one solution to prevent downtime, data theft or data loss, while at the same time safeguarding the productivity of your network users.

The new ZyXEL USG Series delivers ultra-fast firewall, VPN and UTM performance. The devices include best-in-class security components from the industry leaders, unified under a simple, streamlined management interface. The mid-range USGs offer SMBs best network availability for always online communications, featuring load balancing and failover based on multiple WAN connections and redundancy throughout the device. Also available is a comprehensive list of supported 3G USB modems for backup Internet connection. To safeguard against loss of connection and to achieve higher speeds, the load balancing functionality over multiple IPSec VPN tunnels is also supported, as well as high availability if any one of the tunnels fails. Furthermore, ZyXEL USG devices include an integrated WLAN controller, allowing to create scalable, secure wireless networks for BYOD (Bring-Your-Own-Device) or guest access.
