Zyxel’s New Firewall Solution – Technocrat

There is a huge upswing in remote connections

As more and more people connect to corporate networks remotely, the number of vulnerabilities and intrusions has also multiplied. This trend is likely to increase, so it is important that protection systems take care of connections. With Zyxel USG FLEX firewall devices, these are exactly the endpoint protection solutions that can be strengthened

It is risky if the company’s WiFi depends on a single connection point

The process begins to become more cumbersome when an access point needs to be installed remotely as multiple users or machines connect to the device, which is virtually the only access point to the central network. But many companies use this solution to provide easy access to remote users in an office, shop, classroom, hotel, or just a part of a leisure complex away from the center. This practice poses a serious security risk.

Building effective protection is not child’s play

For whatever reason you are installing remote access points, it is important to make sure your connections are secure.

“Many people think it’s appropriate to place a firewall between the access point and the network gateway. But this is more complicated for a remote access point, as remote users or devices connect to the network through the access point. ”

– said Tamás Treso, the head of Zyxel Hungary. This is because it is not easy to set up a traditional VPN or a point-to-point connection, as it is not easy to determine exactly which devices are connected via WiFi, as the access point is also far away.

Secure signal strength in the service of a virtual private network

Secure WiFi, part of the USG FLEX series, uses network virtualization technology using Universal Routing Embedding (NVGRE) to create multiple secure tunnels between a remote access point and a firewall. This provides even greater protection against attempts to eavesdrop on or break the connection between the remote access point and the USG FLEX device. Using Secure WiFi, devices connected through a remote access point receive the same level of protection as if they were connected directly to the core network.

Signal strength easily and quickly

Thanks to the solution, you can easily install remote access points, and as a result, the amount spent on Zyxel USG FLEX firewall devices pays off many times over. Secure WiFi can support multiple remote access points, the number of which depends on the particular USG FLEX device, and it is worth noting that licenses can be applied for for a period of one or two years.
