Zyxel Zywall 35 UTM

 

Good AV and signature-based intrusion detection system (IDS). Reasonable price. Easy installation and configuration.

IDS signature update sometimes unreliable. Spam and content filtering engines not from top-tier providers.

The Zywall 35 UTM is a capable Internet security appliance with unified threat management features for the small business. Its attractive price and easy configuration should make it a good alternative for those relying on desktop security only.

Zywall P1 portable firewall

 

A firewall in a very small, portable box. Is this ingenious, or is it over-doing things?

The P1 only has software firewalls as competition. Certainly, the firewall in Windows XP SP2 is not yet featured enough to stand up to life on the move.

Top performer

 

Works straight out of the box. Fast, even with a heavy transfer load on all ports. Zero drops. Very small, sturdy, and looks good.

Solid and Cool Running

 

Miss the speed lights, like the small metal case. Have four so far for about a month and so far - bulletproof.

Consumer review (tigerdirect.com)

Solid, but Unremarkable

 

As long as you don't need a priority port or any sort of management, this is a solid switch. This is largely a commodity item, so shop other brands to make sure you get the best price.

Product Specifications

Gone are the days when a dedicated firewall is sufficient to fend off hackers from cooperate networks. Unified Threat Management (UTM) is an emerging trend in the network security appliance market. Always on the cutting edge, ZyXEL's ZyWALL 70 UTM is capable of outperforming the current ZyWALL 70 by up to 20 times with just a ZyWALL Turbo Card. This new technology introduces a new all-in-one network security device that provides content filtering, anti-virus, anti-spam and intrusion detection services traditionally handled by multiple systems. From a business perspective, IT managers should consider an "enterprise approach" for comprehensive security. They can now utilize all-in-one appliances, such as ZyXEL's 8-in-1 UTM solution, for solid protection and performance. All of the following features are now offered in one box and controlled through a single unified interface: Anti-Virus, IDP, Anti-Spam, Firewall, VPN, Load Balancing, Bandwidth Management and Content Filtering. Take advantage of secure protection from virus attacks, hackers, and spam. Imagine, no more worrying about spyware, adware, or other potential threats to your computer and valuable data. Make the Internet safe for your PCs and Network. In an increasingly complex network environment an integrated UTM device provides streamlined management efforts, easy installation, and multiple layers of network protection. The ZyXEL ZyWALL 70 PACK UTM includes: 1 ZyWALL 70 + Turbo Card; 1 iCard Gold IDP + AV (license 1 year); 1 iCard Gold AS (license 1 year); 1 iCard Gold CF (license 1 year).
