award 3

1. The world’s first palm-sized portable personal firewall: Learning from recent information security incidents, it’s obvious that the major source of network threats has turn from external attacks to internal contamination. All kinds of network attacks or threats can slip into the corporate network and its workstations via employees’ portable computers, which could have been infected at home or during business trips. To address this issue, ZyXEL developed the portable ZyWALL P1 firewall device for individual users to sanitize their network connection and thus prevent corporate networks from being infected. It also helps network administrators to enforce the security policy on every endpoint PC. 2. A plug-and-play firewall for all operating systems: Today, software-based personal firewall is the only effective solution to enhance user-end network security. On the other hand, software-independent firewall devices like the plug-and-play ZyWALL P1 can prevent software conflicts or operating errors to save network administrators considerable time and cost troubleshooting software problems. Though tiny in size, ZyWALL P1 is large in terms of performance: 90Mbps high-speed firewall, ICSA-certified SPI, DoS/DDoS and Access Control features. In addition, ZyWALL P1 provides an ICSA-certified VPN tunnel with hardware-accelerated DES/3DES/AES encryption of up to 34Mbps throughput. 3. Unique theft-proof design prevents intrusion to corporate networks: ZyWALL P1 is an extremely compact portable device only 13cm long, 8cm wide and weights only 130g. Since a lost ZyWALL P1 could jeopardize the office network if tampered by a malicious person, a two-stage password mechanism is built into ZyWALL P1 that forces the user to provide a key code when connecting to the corporate network, adding another layer of security. 4. Remote monitoring for employee computer security: ZyWALL P1 supports ZyXEL Vantage CNM centralized network management system, which enables administrators to enforce policies on remote employee computers before they can connect to the corporate network. In addition, the Vantage CNM also helps IT staff to manage scattered ZyWALL P1s and handle network threat situations. 5. Convenient adapter-free design: At times it could be a serious hassle when an appropriate power outlet is required for something to work. With a USB interface, ZyWALL P1 can be powered through a notebook computer for enhanced convenience. 6. 3-minute quick setup, zero-altering current network settings ZyWALL P1 can act as a networking bridge for administrators to perform volume deployment without altering current network settings. Thanks to the easy installation feature, even an average user can get ZyWALL P1 up and running in minutes. To enterprises with mobile business needs, easy deployment and management are just part of ZyWALL P1’s advantages to effortlessly maintain a healthy corporate network.
