Business Class Firewalls with Secure VPN Access

NETGEAR ProSAFE® business-class VPN Firewalls are ideal for remote/branch offices and telecommuters and deliver full secure network access between headquarter locations, remote/branch offices and telecommuters. ProSAFE firewalls deliver Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI), Virtual Private Network (VPN), Network Address Translation (NAT), AES and 3DES Encryption, Denial of Service (DoS) protection and more.

Essential Business-class Network Protection

  • NETGEAR ProSAFE® VPN Firewalls with SSL & IPsec VPN offer businesses essential protection for their networks.


  • The VPN Firewalls provide businesses with essential network security –with an business-class Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) firewall, DoS attack protection, and multiple VPN pass-through. SYSLOG, SNMP and email reporting enable thorough network monitoring.

  • ProSAFE® VPN firewalls allow for secure remote access from mobile workers with SSL and IPSec VPN tunnels. SSL VPN tunnels provide clientless remote access to your corporate data for individual access anywhere and anytime while IPSec VPN tunnels provide both secure site-to-site tunnels and legacy support for client-based remote access.


  • Gigabit Ethernet WAN ports support cable or DSL broadband connections. Models with multiple WAN ports can operate in either a load-balancing or fail-over configuration. The load-balancing configuration enables maximum throughput by utilizing WAN connections to distribute traffic across two broadband connections, possibly with different ISP providers. Alternatively, a second WAN port may be configured as a failover connection in case the primary connection fails, for another method of providing high reliability.

  • The rugged metal unit houses advanced, high-quality electronics, and is backed by a lifetime warranty.

Easy to use

  • Auto Detect connects to your ISP quickly; the user-friendly Web-based ProSAFE Control Center configuration screen and install assistant reduce setup time. An intuitive graphical user interface allows for simple ongoing management.
