TeamF1, NETGEAR Team on SRXN3205 ProSafe Wireless-N VPN Firewall

TeamF1, Inc., the leader in embedded networking and security software, announced that it had expanded its partnership with NETGEAR, a global provider of technologically advanced, branded networking products for business and home users, to bring to market a highly integrated SMB wireless VPN Firewall. NETGEAR’s recently released SRXN3205 ProSafe Wireless-N VPN Firewall joins a successful family of business security VPN Firewalls enabled by this partnership between the companies, including the recent FVS336G model and several others in previous years. SRXN3205 is designed to meet the needs of small and medium businesses that need to secure their networks, while allowing for convenient wireless and remote access.

The SRXN3205 Wireless-N VPN Firewalls provides an advanced VPN (virtual private network) function that combines IP security (IPsec) VPN capabilities for secure branch office and site-to-site connectivity, with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) VPN for secure remote access to a company’s internal network. The seamless integration of these dual technologies in a single device, with its rich firewall, intrusion detection system, advanced QoS and its focus on ease of use, makes it attractive for branch offices, telecommuter friendly small-to-medium businesses and road warriors alike since they can securely link to a company’s network. A built-in dual-band Wireless-N access point further extends the reach of its security to wireless users on the local network.

“We are pleased to expand our strategic relationship with TeamF1 on the ProSafe SRXN3205,” said Jason Leung, NETGEAR’s senior product line manager for SMB security. “TeamF1 continues to set the standard as a technology partner for security and networking software solutions to target business-class routers.”

“TeamF1 prides itself on developing technologies that help some of the world’s most admired networking vendors develop innovative products and get them to market faster,” said Mukesh Lulla, president, TeamF1, Inc. “We are pleased to have delivered once again, through this partnership with NETGEAR, on NETGEAR’s vision of providing robust, sophisticated security in a user-friendly form on the new ProSafe business-class Wireless VPN Firewall.”
