By placing a firewall between your local network (LAN/WLAN) and the Internet, you can make it very hard for hackers to gain access to your local network. That is, if you have configured your firewall correctly. This can be especially important for businesses and people with sensitive information on their computer systems. A very neat function most hardware firewalls have is the ability to securely connect the local area network to other local area networks in different locations over the Internet, thus creating a Virtual Private Network (VPN). With VPN you can safely share network resources with remote offices or play games with your friends as if you were on the same LAN!

High Performance VPN Concentrator
The ZyWALL 1050 allows organizations to establish Virtual Private Network (VPN) connections among multiple locations (such as remote branch offices, business partner sites and remote teleworkers). Data is encrypted in a VPN to secure communication channels and prevent confidential information from being eavesdropped over the Internet. Communication through VPN tunnels is protected from session hijack attacks and information theft. These security features are integrated in the ZyWALL 1050 to provide seamless data protection before transmission to a trusted network over the VPN. The Hub and Spoke VPN feature dramatically reduces management overhead and complexity in a complex, multi-site corporate network infrastructure.

User-Aware Policy Engine Enables Access Granularity
In addition to basic access control capabilities, the intelligent user aware policy engine on the ZyWALL 1050 is designed to make packet-forwarding decisions based on multiple criteria (such as user ID, user group, time of access and network quota, etc.). In addition, you can apply access policies to other security features such as VPN, content filtering and application patrol. In conjunction with network partitioning, corporate security policies can be effectively enforced to prevent unauthorized access to network or network resources.

Proactive Network Protection Mitigates Security Breaches
With the embedded signature-based IDP (Intrusion Detection and Prevention) engine, the ZyWALL 1050 performs L7 packet inspection for protocol anomaly or matched patterns. Thus, the ZyWALL 1050 provides comprehensive Intrusion Detection and Prevention capability to proactively detect and block potential worms, viruses, Trojans, VoIP threats, etc.. ZSRT (ZyXEL Security Response Team), ZyXEL’s dedicated security experts, releases up-to-date IDP signatures/patterns in response to ever-evolving vulnerabilities/exploits. New updates are automatically downloaded and installed through ZSDN to your ZyWALL 1050.
