The DFL-200 is a hardware-based VPN Firewall designed to meet the security and remote access needs of small to medium businesses that demand high performance at competitive prices. This reliable network security solution provides remote offices with an integrated Network Address Translation (NAT) and Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) Firewall, Denial of Service (DoS) protection as well as Virtual Private Network (VPN) endpoint and pass-through support. Additional firewall features include custom and policy-based filtering options to enhance overall network security protection. All these features come packed into a single device to provide network administrators a business-class level security solution for smaller-scale offices.
Within a desktop size industrial chassis, the DFL-200 VPN Firewall includes one RS-232 console port, one WAN port, four trusted LAN ports that allow direct connection to up to four computers or switches and one DMZ port to segment publicly accessed resources such as e-mail or FTP servers. Users on the network can connect to the Internet via the DFL-200’s WAN connection, which supports Dynamic IP, Static IP, PPPoE client, or PPTP client.
The DFL-200 VPN Firewall has several flexible features to manage, monitor, and maintain a healthy and secure network. Some network management features include: Remote management, URL/Keyword Blocking, Access Policies, and SNMP. For network security monitoring, the DFL-200 supports e-mail alerts, system log, consistency checks, and real-time statistics. These features, along with a firmware backup function, provide and maintain maximum network performance and security.
For advanced VPN setup, the DFL-200 has a built-in hardware accelerated VPN server which supports up to 80 VPN connections. The DFL-200 can support IPSec in Client/Server mode and can also handle IPSec, PPTP, and L2TP pass-through traffic. Advanced VPN configuration options include: AES/DES/3DES encryption, Manual or IKE/ISAKMP key management, Aggressive or Main Negotiation modes, and VPN authentication support using either a RADIUS server or the internal 50-user database.
The DFL-200 VPN Firewall can be remotely configured via D-Link’s Web-based interface or through a dedicated VPN connection. These configuration options can be managed through Admin, Read/Write, or Read-Only administrator rights. With these access management levels, any authorized user can easily configure or access the administrative functions of the DFL-200.
With businesses becoming increasingly network-dependent, the need to invest in a reliable network security solution is crucial. Each security appliance in the D-Link NetDefend family of products offers high return on investment through robust security features, flexible configuration, and maximum network protection.
