When combined with the XSR's powerful IP routing throughput, the integrated VPN feature set dramatically increases the performance and functionality for enterprise branch office networking. Customers can now take advantage of unmatched VPN capabilities for site-to-site as well as remote access connectivity.
Enterasys Firewall Feature Set brings high-performance, policy-managed, stateful inspection firewalling to the XSR Security Router platforms. The addition of enterprise-class firewalling complements the XSR's industry-leading IP routing, Quality of Service/NAT functionality and VPN features, making it ideally suited to remote offices that require routing, WAN, VPN and firewalling functionality in a single box.
The most secure approach to protecting critical resources from external or internal threats is a "defense-in-depth" strategy with distributed firewalling at each remote office. The Firewall Feature Set delivers essential security with policy rules that determine which traffic is permitted and which traffic is denied. And the Graphical User Interface simplifies the process of defining these rules and applying them to multiple remote offices.
With both firewalling and VPN enabled, the XSR delivers an unprecedented level of security to the branch or regional office in a single integrated device. And, in contrast to competitive solutions, the XSR offers the power and performance needed to deliver full-featured security while maintaining wire-speed WAN routing.
