Billion Electric BiGuard S20

ZyXEL ZyWALL SSL 10

ZyXEL ZyWALL SSL 10

ZyXEL's ZyWALL SSL 10 is an SSL VPN appliance aimed at small and medium-sized businesses, allowing secure remote access to files and applications on a company's network without manual installation of extra software. It can be used in place of or alongside an existing router or gateway, and offers an economical way to provide remote access to an office network. However, the hardware is somewhat limited, the licensing somewhat dubious and the management and user interfaces fixed and not necessarily easy to use.
