Core i3-4330 CPU*1, 500GB HDD, 4GB RAM, LED, 18ports (1LAN/1WANfixed) – NU-870C
Exceptional Performance and Consolidated Security Features
NU-870C adopts best-on-class multi-core x86 CPU platform to deliver exceptional performance and intelligent network security features. ShareTech develops high-performance security modules and delivers enterprise-class security modules, high connection capacity connectivity, and supports USB instant recovery.
IPv4 / v6 Dual Mode
Native dual-stack supported. To cope with IPv4 depletion, ShareTech provides a solution that covers both IPv4 and IPv6 network and can be configured for IPv4 only, IPv6 only, or to support both protocols simultaneously. Furthermore, all ShareTech appliances have been certificated with “IPv6 Ready” logo.
Supports SDN Controller
Being the core of an SDN network, SDN controller is designed to manage flow control to enable intelligent networking. Based on protocols, the controller configures network devices and chooses the optimal network path for application traffic. IEEE 802.1Q VLAN is supported to provide a degree of isolation by dividing the network into isolated islands as if provided by separate physical networks.
To protect your network from network threats, SSL inspection is the key used to unlock encrypted sessions, see into encrypted packets, find threats, and block them. Several security features that can be applied using SSL certificate inspection are IPS, gateway anti-virus, web filtering, application control, and QoS.
Inbound/Outbound Load Balance
Outbound/inbound load balancing are provided for distributing incoming HTTP requests across multiple servers, improving server utilization and maximizing availability. When one of the links is down, the other link will take over the work and handle the traffic until troubled one returns to normal, in either manual or auto distribution mode. Built-in DNS server functionality that enables inbound Load Balancing distributes inbound data traffic over multiple WAN links to computers behind UTM for more reliable network connectivity.
Intrusion Prevention System (IPS)
Built-in IPS inspects the packets from OSI layer 4-7 (transport to application layer) and block concealed malicious code and worms delivered in TCP/IP protocols. As soon as an attack is suspected, IT administrator will be notified immediately and later an extensive range of reports will be available for analysis. ShareTech regularly updates the predefined attack-signature database and makes it available as IPS security package.
Advanced Threat Defense
In addition to firewall, Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), and virus scanning, NU-870C can monitor malware or threats within traffics based on analyzing flows, webpages, and email. By performing different security mechanisms, business network is given more effective and profound protection against active cyberattacks, targeted attacks, and sophisticated malware.
For companies that have deployed mail servers in their network environments but lacking of advanced filtering, NU-870C can be placed at gateway to secure your email and get simple and powerful protection from spam, virus and malware.
NU-870C for large enterprises offer Clam AV for virus scanning which can detect over millions of viruses, worms, and Trojans. Once suspicious emails are detected, the administrator can decide to delete or block them. Moreover, websites will be scanned once the function of anti-virus is enabled in policy. Customers may choose to purchase a Kaspersky module for their security needs. (NU-870C contains 1-year Kaspersky license.)
NU-870C employs multi-spam filters: ST-IP Network Rating, Bayesian Filtering, spam characteristics filtering, fingerprinting, auto learning, and personal B/W list. It also gives administrators the flexibility to enforce custom filtering. These help industries create their own database by importing the latest spam update. Following actions like forward, delete, quarantine can be taken on the mail identified as the spam. Email accessed by users from LAN to DMZ can be especially filtered and logged.
IP Traffic Streams Analysis
Outgoing/incoming concurrent sessions, upload/download flow, and time duration are flow parameters collected for packet-based traffic analysis. Using a combination of pattern matching can determine whether an activity is performing normally or abnormally. If employee are violating the rules and exceeding more downloading flow, IT administrators are allowed to define the trusted IP list and take appropriate actions to block network access, limit maximum bandwidth, blocking ports on switches (Co-Defense), or simply receive notification.
QoS offers more agile bandwidth management for industries and organizations. All the servers and users can be configured their minimum and maximum bandwidth; the remaining bandwidth will be allotted to the other users according to their configuration.
IT administrators can configure Web filtering profiles that block URLs to inappropriate webpages like violence and pornography and hacking attacks like malware and virus. Moreover, UTM filters out ActiveX objects, Cookies or Java applets that may pose a security threat in certain situations. Both keywords and URLs of specified websites can be added to Blacklist and Whitelist.
Built-in URL database collects almost 1, 000, 000 URLs and updates every period of time without additional charge. All these URLs and their contents were analyzed and classified into 12 categories, including Aggressive, Audio-Video, Drugs, Gambling, Hacking, Porn, Proxy, Redirector, Spyware, Suspect, Violence, and Warez. IT administrator is able to block any category in the database with ease without entering keywords or desired URL addresses one by one.
WEB and Email Records
Record each user online behavior (computer name, IP address, MAC address, and traffics) time stamps, items and locations
Record incoming and outgoing mail (Webmail) and their attachments pass through the mail gateway
Email is saved in an .eml format that can easily be viewed and searched
No matter whether internal users’ computers are on or off, flow analysis tools can display real-time statistics, protocol distribution list, and rankings of traffic flows.
In order to prevent data leakage and ensure regulatory compliance, the access to applications which unrelated to work should be controlled during working hours. NU-870C can enforce policy for applications like P2P, VOIP, GoToMyPc, Webpages, Games, Media Player, Bit Torrent, Foxy (Gnutrlla), stock market, Instant Messaging, Xunlei, Gator, Yahoo Manager, Virus and Malware, file name extension, Kazaa, Facebook, etc.
ShareTech reporting allows administrators to custom how the chart types (bar, pie, line, and table) or texts will be displayed at the top of the report. NU-870C displays operation status for the time frame specified (day, week, or month), including CPU, RAM, modification times, security level and flow monitor reports.
Remote-access VPNs allow secure access to corporate resources by establishing an encrypted tunnel across the Internet. The ubiquity of the Internet, combined with VPN technologies, allows organizations to cost-effectively and securely extend the reach of their networks to anyone, anyplace, anytime. ShareTech offers IPSec, PPTP, and L2TP VPN technologies on a single platform with unified management. IPsec VPN securing the site-to-site connections allows headquarters and their branch offices to be on the same network and sharing resources among offices. Moreover, PPTP and L2TP VPN offer point to point connection for employees working at home. Employees can get access to industry’s network securely and easily.
SSL-based VPNs provide remote-access connectivity from almost any Internet-enabled location using a Web browser and its native SSL encryption. It does not require any special-purpose client software to be pre-installed on the system. For remote clients, there are two different types of access. One is access to the internal network and the other is access to the Internet over VPN server. Administrators can control over bandwidth usage, VPN service and time from both accesses.
ShareTech NU-870C is the next phase of technology change which will help service provider to launch the services in single click, delivering exceptional performance, superior multi-layered threat protection, and role-based administration to medium and large businesses.
