The Vigor 2960 is a high-performance dual-Gigabit WAN firewall. The two dedicated Gigabit WAN ports can provide load balancing, WAN failover or bandwidth aggregation (increasing total bandwidth onto the Internet). Based on a DrayTek OS platform, the Vigor 2960 provides high performance with DrayTek's traditional ease of use and comprehensive features set. Extensive QoS, VLAN web content filtering features help keep your network efficiency and online productivity high.
The Vigor2960 series also provides high-security firewall options with both IP-layer and content based protection. The DoSIDDoS prevention and URL/Web content filter strengthen the security outside and inside the network. The enterprise-level CSM (Content Security Management) enables users to control and manage IM (Instant Messenger) and P2P (Peer to Peer) applications more efficiently. The CSM hence prevents inappropriate content from distracting employees and impeding productivity. Furthermore, the CSM can keep office networks threat-free and available. With CSM, you can protect confidential and essential data from modification or theft.
Enterprise-level VPN Network
With a dedicated VPN co-processor, the hardware encryption of AES/DES/3DES and hardware key hash of SHA-1/MD5 are seamlessly handled, thus maintaining maximum router performance. For remote tele-workers and inter-office links, the Vigor2960 supports up to 200 simultaneous VPN tunnels (such as IPSec/PPTP/L2TP protocols) and 100 sessions of SSL VPN. The Vigor2960 provides the Web Proxy based SSL encryption for tele-workers and/or remote access. Without the necessity of installing VPN client on individual PC, the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Virtual Private Network (VPN) facility lets remote workers connect to the office network at any time. SSL is supported by standard web browsers such as Firefox and IE. For users of small offices and tele-workers who need to access enterprises' internal applications, file server and file sharing, Vigor2960 security router series allows up to 100 concurrent SSL sessions.
