award 3

Addressing growing concerns from small and medium-sized businesses over network security, hacker attacks, virus threats, and increasing privacy issues, today D-Link announced a brand new series of security appliances, which includes two D-Link NetDefend UTM Firewalls DFL-260 and DFL-860. These devices allow businesses to securely control traffic and content entering and exiting their networks and provide them with the highest level of network performance and availability for the SOHO and small to medium-sized business (SMB).

The DFL-260 and DFL-860 firewalls not only inherit innovative technologies found in the recently ICSA-certified NetDefend OS, such as Server Load Balancing, Traffic Shaping and ZoneDefense, but also add new proactive security mechanisms, such as Intrusion Prevention System, Anti-Virus and Web Content Filtering using a built-in Layer 7 packet inspection accelerator engine.

Built-in Hardware Accelerator
With this built-in hardware accelerator, the new D-Link firewalls can carry out IPS, Anti-Virus scanning functions simultaneously without degrading firewall and VPN performance. Capable of maintaining a stable and high performance when operating these proactive security functions, these D-Link UTM firewalls outperform most other firewalls in the same category in the market today.


About D-Link Corporation

Founded in 1986, D-Link is a global leader in advanced networking, broadband, digital, voice and data communication solutions. We continually meet the needs of the digital home, small office, small-to-medium sized businesses, and enterprise environments.


In 1986, D Link founder Ken Kao and six colleagues set out on an entrepreneurial venture that would forever change the computer networking industry. D Link was founded under the name Datex Systems. The name D Link takes the leading D from Datex, combining it with the concept of a “link” connecting people. In fact, D Link’s Chinese name roughly translates as “friends networking together.” This concept continues to shape D Link’s brand today. Though founded as a small venture, D Link has since swelled into an international networking giant with over 2,800 employees worldwide. D Link has emerged as a trusted brand with a worldwide reputation for robust and affordable networking solutions, and has renewed its commitment to developing “green” technologies and IPv6 ready hardware which will prepare its customers for an alluring new era of ultimate connectivity.
