The Cyberguard SG series is a range of fully featured, stateful Firewall / VPN appliances packed with features at excellent price performance. With all Cyberguard SG appliances ICSA-certified, customers are now assured of fully-featured and powerful stateful technology, ensuring them the highest levels of network security.

With appliances suitable for Small Businesses, to Wireless setups, and all the way to Mid-Large sized coporations, the entire family of Cyberguard SG series is highly resistant to denial-of-service attacks and intrusion attempts, while actively repelling port scans and other common probes.

Cyberguard SG 710/710+

The SG710 is the flagship of CyberGuard's SG Series of firewall/VPN appliances. With multi-megabit throughput, four fast Ethernet ports standard, and the option for two additional gigabit ports, the ICSA-certified SG710 is an excellent solution for branch offices of large organizations, as well as central offices of small to mid-sized enterprises (SME).

The SG710 provides central site VPN, firewall and session load balancing capabilities with the capacity to securely connect hundreds of mobile and remote employees. The SNORT-based IDS adds an extra security layer by detecting attacks and alerting administrator. So that countermeasures can be implemented quickly before the network is compromised. With its rich feature set and rack-optimized form factor, the SG710 is a compelling enterprise-class firewall solution at a mid-market price.

Flexible Network Configuration with Bandwidth Optimization

The SG710 supports four 10/100 Fast Ethernet (FE) segments in its base configuration. Customers requiring Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) connectivity can order the SG710+, which is equipped with dual GbE ports, extending the total number of Ethernet segments to six. Central and remote networks can connect to the Internet through a variety of broadband (ADSL, SHDSL and cable) or dedicated high-speed copper (T-1, T-2, fractional T-3 and full T-3) or fiber circuits (OC-1 to OC-3).

The SG710 improves available Internet bandwidth and connection uptime by providing traffic load balancing across dual WAN links while an embedded Web proxy cache, based on Squid, further accelerates Web page downloads. This makes the SG710 an excellent solution for organizations that are power Web users or have many remote offices accessing corporate intranets. Bandwidth can be further optimized through traffic shaping controls. Customers wishing to protect against access to inappropriate Web material can purchase an URL content filtering (UCF) subscription service. This works in conjunction with the URL proxy embedded in the SG710 to increase productivity and available bandwidth. The combination supports blocking, monitoring, rating and optional reporting without the need for an on-site URL database.

Fully Integrated IDS Assures Maximum Security

Although all SG firewall/VPN appliances defend against Denial of Service and other common attacks, the SG710 raises the bar by detecting "suspicious" activity before it escalates into a full-blown network intrusion.

Web Cache for Rapid Web Response Time

The SG710 incorporates a powerful Web proxy cache to improve Web page response time and reduce link loads. Designed to integrate seamlessly with upstream proxy caches provided by ISPs, the SG710 allows complete tuning of the service using the management console GUI and command-line interface.

Failover and Load Balancing

Increase uptime and boost performance by connecting the SG710's two broadband links to different Internet providers, and then combining these into a single "virtualized" high performance connection. A network outage on either link will automatically switch traffic to the operational link via the built-in link failover features. The resulting network redundancy makes it possible to reduce by half the number of security appliances required to protect a network while preserving maximum throughout and uptime. The traffic load-balancing feature also boosts the performance of Web transfers and the stability of a company network connected by DSL to the Internet.

Demilitarized Zones (DMZ)

Administrators can improve on-site and remote employee productivity without compromising security by creating DMZs that segment the network into private and public security zones. Typically, the private network will be used to secure "internal" data while the DMZ permits access to e-mail servers, Web servers, and other "public" applications and content.
