The fast and flexible appliance for large enterprise networks
The Stonesoft 3205 appliance is a versatile and modular Security Engine (NGN)-powered solution designed to meet the performance and scalability requirements of data centers and large-sized network central sites. It can be used as a Layer 3 device for secure routing, NAT and IPsec VPN gateway purposes. In a Layer 2 configuration it presents itself as an IDS sensor, inline IPS or Layer 2 firewall. All this is available with a single unified software image, adaptable with just a configuration change.
In the Layer 3 role, as a routing firewall and IPsec VPN gateway solution, the 3205 appliance provides high performance and offers unique clustering capabilities with up to 16 nodes. This provides very high IPSec VPN speeds, as well as high performance content and application inspection.
In Layer 2 roles the Security Engine enables the 3205 to become transparent to surrounding network devices. The inline IPS and Layer 2 Firewall roles combine deployment flexibility, AET-ready network security and application control into one dedicated appliance.
