BILLION expands its range of BiGuard IPSec VPN Security Appliances
High-grade 802.11g Dual-WAN Security Gateway for SMBs - BiGuard 50G
Billion Electric Co., Ltd. (Taiex: #3027) a major international network equipment and solution provider, announces its new security gateway, BiGuard 50G, to cater to Small to Medium Business (SMB) demand for Internet security. The BiGuard 50G boasts a dual-WAN gateway function that also delivers a secure wireless environment via a built-in 802.11g AccessPoint, allowing you to quickly and easily set up a wireless network for added office mobility. It supports load balancing and Auto Fail-over to keep always-on Internet sharing for SMBs. Powered by the next-generation CPU, the BiGuard 50G not only enhances its operating performance dramatically with up to 50 secure IPSec VPN tunnels, but also provides users with faster speed and more reliable VPN connections. For on-the-road users, the BiGuard 50G enables safe data transmission between the head office and remote sites.
In response to demand for data encryption and wireless network support, BILLION launches the BiGuard 50G to deliver a wireless environment and a multi-function network solution with IPSec VPN security for those small offices without a server room. The BiGuard IPSec VPN Security Appliance series includes BiGuard 2, BiGuard 10, and BiGuard 30. The new product, BiGuard 50G, both expands the product line of BiGuard IPSec VPN Security Appliances and offers a wireless network solution for SMBs.
The BiGuard 50G enables two Internet connections with integrated dual WAN ports. The Auto Fail-over feature can be configured for a second connection to ensure redundant connectivity when the primary line fails. The device also offers flexible WAN connectivity via Cable, XDSL, or FTTX for video conferencing, data transmission, VoIP and bandwidth-consuming applications. Load balancing provides the ability to distribute the outgoing traffic across the two connections, and meets growing business needs requiring more bandwidth and network scalability.
With the integrated 802.11g AP, the BiGuard 50G lets users set up a secure wireless environment and easy access with data encryption very quickly. Wireless Protected Access (WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK) and Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) support ensures high-level data protection and WLAN access control. The BiGuard 50G also includes rich firewall security features such as SPI, DoS attack prevention and URL content filtering to provide unparalleled protection for Internet access. Furthermore, the firewall function provides an e-mail alert service to notify you whenever an attack occurs.
In addition, the BiGuard 50G supports IPSec VPN and PPTP VPN protocols to ensure that data is transmitted securely among multiple sites, such as branch offices or remote dial-up. The VPN feature supports up to 50 simultaneous IPSec VPN tunnels and four simultaneous PPTP VPN tunnels. The user can manage the bandwidth and prioritize data transfer effectively with the Quality of Service (QoS) feature which gives full control over the traffic of any type of data. Thus, important data and bandwidth-consuming applications such as video conferencing, customer information or FTP sharing, can move through the router at instantaneous speed, even when there is a heavy load. The speed for inbound and outbound data passed through the router can be controlled to ensure that users do not saturate the bandwidth with their browsing activities.
