New product: Netgear SRX5308 ProSafe Firewall

3 May 2010 11:32 PM -

“Finally! An affordable professional firewall with multi-WAN failover, IPsec and SSL VPN,” says Larry Strauch, IT manager for Floor Craft LLC, based in Colorado Springs, Colorado. “The SRX5308 firewall comes with an intuitive administration interface, which we’ve come to expect from NETGEAR ProSafe products. With a LAN to WAN throughput of up to 1 Gigabit per second, the SRX5308 is easily able to handle the throughput of our large data pipe —50 Mbps. This router impressed the entire IT department by doing so much, and doing it faster than other solutions we previously tested. The NETGEAR ProSafe SRX5308 has found a permanent home on our rack.”

Perfect for the most demanding business networks, the ProSafe Quad WAN Gigabit SSL VPN Firewall (SRX5308) features a hardware-accelerated data flow architecture that enables 1 Gbps LAN-to-WAN of stateful firewall throughput. Further, the SRX5308 affords remote users the ability to build VPN tunnels to the corporate office to access centralized data using the IP Security (IPsec - 125 simultaneous users) standard or software clientless Secure Socket Layers (SSL - 50 users).

The sophisticated SRX5308 VPN router is a high-performance, SNMP-manageable network solution furnishing multidimensional security, such as denial-of-service (DoS) attack protection, Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) to curb hacker threats, URL keyword filtering, SYSLOG support, configurable hardware DMZ port, e-mail reporting, logging and real-time alerts. Quality-of-Service (QoS), WAN traffic metering, and bandwidth profiling give network managers granular bandwidth management capabilities, while VLAN support enables separation of guest traffic from critical production servers. Four Gigabit LAN ports enable maximum internal data transfer speeds, while the four Gigabit WAN ports provide two modes of session-based load balancing as well as failover protection to ensure maximum throughput and reliable connectivity to the Internet.

As with all NETGEAR ProSafe products, the SRX5308 contains several ease-of-use features to simplify implementation: an Auto Detect function connects to a user’s ISP promptly; the web-based ProSafe Control Center graphical user interface (GUI) offers simple configuration screens; an Install Assistant to reduce setup time; and an IPsec VPN wizard automates IPsec VPN configuration and creates secure connections to multiple sites.

The NETGEAR ProSafe Quad WAN Gigabit SSL VPN Firewall (SRX5308) is compatible with Windows®, UNIX®, Macintosh®, and Linux® OS and comes with full 24/7 technical support. All NETGEAR ProSafe products, including the SRX5308, are backed by a lifetime warranty and optional ProSupport Maintenance Packages. The SRX5308 is available now from leading direct marketers, e-commerce sites, and value-added resellers at an estimated price starting at US$499. Photos and other product information can be found at
