      SnapGear Family benefits, features, and advantages

      Enterprise-class networking technology in small business platforms
      SnapGear's configurable firmware is based on embedded Linux and provides a virtually unlimited range of precise tuning options for such elements as QoS (Quality of Service), VPN tunnel topology, routing, and fine-grained firewall rule sets.

      Fully supports both business and consumer-grade broadband, ADSL, dedicated circuits from T-1 on up, narrow-band modems, and wireless. Advanced networking features include support of port & tag based VLAN, OSPF, BGP, RIP, RIPv2, RAS, RADIUS, TACACS+, MS-CHAP V2, and more. Web and DNS caching is also available.

      Failover and load balancing
      To assure uninterrupted connectivity, all SnapGear family products are equipped with a serial port. If the broadband Internet connection is lost, SnapGear products can automatically create a new narrowband connection using an external ISDN or analog modem. The SG560, SG565, SG580, and SG710/710+ appliances support multiple broadband ports to ensure uninterrupted WAN access and maximum bandwidth utilization.

      Fully featured and powerful stateful inspection firewall technology
      With ICSA-Certified dynamic firewall technology underpinning all SnapGear models, SnapGear customers are assured of the highest levels of stateful firewall protection. The entire SnapGear line is highly resistant to denial-of-service attacks and intrusion attempts, while actively repelling port scans and other common probes.

      Virtual private network (VPN)
      Whether connecting site-to-site or with mobile users, SnapGear supports all of the most popular types of VPN technology including PPTP, L2TP, GRE, and IPSec. Even the smallest SnapGear security appliances include a robust IPsec VPN solution for securely inter-connecting multiple offices across the public Internet without investing in a dedicated wide area network. The SnapGear VPN supports 3DES, AES, and other popular commercial encryption algorithms.

      Intrusion detection and threat mitigation
      All SnapGear security appliances include technology to disrupt conventional scanning and network layer denial of service attacks. The SnapGear SG565, SG580 and SG710/710+ include embedded anti-virus gateway services for SMTP, HTTP, POP3, and FTP. The SnapGear SG565, SG580, SG635, and SG710/710+ models also include an active IDS (Intrusion Detection System) powered by SnortT to proactively monitor network events and alert network personnel when there is suspicious activity. The IDS assists with intrusion mitigation by scanning traffic for known viruses and by profiling traffic bi-directionally to help identify compromised systems.

      Employee outbound access URL content filtering
      Control and report on how your employees use their Web access. SnapGear appliances include the option for you to subscribe to our leading Webwasher® URL filtering solution (1, 2, or 3-year subscriptions available).

      Appliance management (one-to-one and one-to-many)
      All SnapGear appliances are easy to securely manage via any Web browser (Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator and others), and also provide an extensive feature-rich command line interface (SSH security on all models apart from SG300). Optional enterprise-class central management and reporting is available by deploying Global Command Center software on a platform of your choosing. Global Command Center software allows network administrators to manage hundreds of SnapGear appliances easily including the management of upgrades, policy changes, and other configuration tasks with the click of a mouse.

      Benefits and features by SnapGear model

      SnapGear 300 platform SG300- The SnapGear SG300 is a compact, feature-rich network security appliance that is perfect for securing small networks and remote workers. The onboard 4-port 10/100 Ethernet switch enables a small business to implement a LAN quickly and easily, and the WAN Ethernet and serial ports connect the network to the Internet via broadband (ADSL, cable, SHDSL, etc.) or narrow-band (modem or ISDN) connections. If the broadband connection is lost, the SG300 can fail over in seconds to the narrowband connection, ensuring maximum uptime.

      SnapGear 560 platform SG560 - For larger offices or where higher performance is needed, the SnapGear SG560 includes all the features of the SG300 and also has a robust metal case, hardware encryption acceleration for better VPN performance, and port-based VLAN capability offering up to five separate security zones.

      SnapGear 565 platform SG565 - With the adoption of wireless LANs (WLANs), people in distributed departments within medium to large organizations benefit from the ability to access information when away from a desk. The SnapGear SG565 extends the capabilities of the SG560 to include 802.11b/g Wireless LAN support and two USB host ports, allowing the direct connection of local storage devices and printers. The SG565 also offers gateway anti-virus, IDS/IPS, and Web caching. Combining VPN technology with Wireless LAN is a natural match, guaranteeing privacy of your precious data.

      SnapGear 580 platform SG580 - The SnapGear SG580 consolidates firewall, intrusion prevention, secure VPN access, gateway anti-virus, and Web filtering. Its networking capabilities enable small offices and branch offices of large enterprises to safely and easily connect their network of PCs, PDAs, Web and applications servers to the Internet via broadband-dedicated circuits from T-1 to T-3 and xDSL, or narrowband connections (modem/ISDN). Includes multiple enterprise-level connectivity and security features, including up to five separate security zones, link failover and Internet session load-balancing, and built-in Web proxy cache.

      SnapGear 635 platform SG635 - The SnapGear SG635 is a cost-effective firewall/ VPN/IDS/IPS solution packaged on a PCI card for desktops and critical servers. By offloading all firewall, VPN, and IDS/IPS processing from the host computer, the SG635 ensures high performance and throughput with the convenience of remote management and simplified installation. Unlike "coprocessing" products, the SG635 is an advanced, self-contained multi-tasking stateful firewall, VPN, and IDS/IPS appliance. It includes a RISC processor, encryption accelerator for IPSec VPN traffic and two Ethernet interfaces for host and LAN communications (only one external). The SnapGear SG635 packs the power of a firewall, VPN, and IDS/IPS solution while eliminating the cabling, space and power requirements of an external appliance.

      SnapGear 710/710+ platform SG710/710+ - The SG710 is the flagship of the SnapGear Family of firewall/VPN appliances. With multi-megabit throughput, two fast Ethernet ports, and two 4-port VLAN switches as standard, and the option for two additional gigabit ports, the ICSA-certified SG710 is an excellent solution for branch offices of larger organizations, as well as central offices of small to mid-sized enterprises (SME). The SG710 provides central site VPN, firewall, and session load balancing capabilities with the capacity to securely connect hundreds of mobile and remote employees. With its rich feature set and rack-optimized form factor, the SG710 is a compelling enterprise-class firewall solution at a mid-market price.
