Powerful, agile security for high end data centers
The Stonesoft 3206 appliance is a versatile and modular Security Engine (NGN)-powered solution designed to meet the performance and scalability requirements of high-end data centers and large network central sites. It can be used in a Firewall/VPN role (Layer 3) for secure routing, NAT, and IPsec VPN gateway purposes. It can also be used in an IPS role (Layer 2) in an IDS deployment or an inline IPS deployment, or in a Layer 2 Firewall role. All of these roles are available with a single unified software image and can be adapted just by changing configuration.
In the Firewall/VPN role, the Stonesoft 3206 appliance provides high performance with unique clustering capabilities for up to 16 nodes. This provides very high IPsec VPN speeds, as well as high-performance content and application inspection as required.
In the IPS and Layer 2 Firewall roles, the Security Engine enables the 3206 to become transparent to surrounding network devices. The inline IPS and Layer 2 firewall combine flexible deployment, AET-ready network security, and application control into one dedicated appliance.
