More and more people are relying on smart devices and cloud-based applications for business communications. This means that high network availability is critical for business continuity, more Wi-Fi is demanded in the workplace, and traditional regulatory measures for application usage are obsolete. Without an effective solution to control, optimize and block social, productivity and other web applications, SMBs risk losing work productivity and exposing company networks to new web threats.
The ZyXEL USG Advanced Series are Next Generation Firewalls (NGFW) designed to meet the mobility, anti-malware and policy enforcement challenges in SMBs. The integrated WLAN controller offers easy WLAN scalability for the growing demand for Wi-Fi; while WAN and VPN load balancing and failover ensures nonstop business communications. ZyXEL USGs offer industry-leading anti-virus, anti-spam, content filtering and application intelligence technology for effective application optimization and comprehensive network protection.
The ZyXEL USG Advanced Series provides non-stop Internet uptime with multi-WAN and mobile broadband support. Multi-WAN works with two or more Ethernet WAN connections for active-active WAN load balancing or active-passive failover. Comprehensive mobile broadband USB modems are also supported for WAN backup.
