The advancements in how people work and collaborate have brought three major challenges to small businesses. With the BYOD trend, small businesses today need to provide more Wi-Fi for an exploding amount of smart devices. The use of cloud-based social and productivity applications not only requires small businesses to be able to control, prioritize and block different applications to stay productive, but also opens doors to web attacks. As threats evolve and these business challenges diversify, IT costs will only continue to grow, which is a real problem for small businesses with limited IT resources.
The ZyXEL USG performance series are all-in-one Next Generation Firewalls (NGFW) specifically designed to fulfill the demands BYOD, malware protection, application regulation, and budget control in small business environments. The built-in wireless AP and WLAN controller offer instant wireless hotspot capability and future WLAN scalability. Comprehensive UTM features and application intelligence technology provides deep, extensive protection, while keeping businesses in control of how Web applications are used. The all-in-one design integrates everything small businesses need, delivering easier, more centralized management and lower total cost of ownership (TCO).
Built with single-radio and dual-radio wireless access points, the ZyXEL USG40W is ideal for retail and office environments.
