Description
This Information Security Gateway allows you to effectively control and manage information flows from your company to the outside world.

The NetDefend family of Firewall/VPN Security Appliances is D-Link's answer for hardware-based network security. The D-Link DFL-M510 NetDefend Information Security Gateway is a revolutionary security device designed to protect your network from the emerging security risks.

The DFL-M510 is an essential resource for business facing threats posed by an increasing use of instant messaging (IM) and peer-to-peer (P2P) applications. Without effective management and control mechanisms in place, these applications are vulnerable to a wide variety of security risks including viruses and worms, leakage of confidential information, corporate and regulatory compliance violations, and even identity theft.

The DFL-M510 can help address these threats by identifying unmanaged, unauthorized IM and P2P activity on your network. Effectively control and manage information flows from your company to the outside world. The DFL-M510 will not only let you control and manage IM and P2P applications, but also file transfers, e-mail and streaming media applications.

IM/P2P and Bandwidth Management
The DFL-M510 allows you to better manage your employees' network activities and prevent possible misuse of IM and P2P applications. Implementation can be based on company policies and operation is both automatic and transparent. Eliminate excessive use of precious network bandwidth and prevent against possible leaks of company secrets through unauthorized and unmanaged communication.

Malicious Traffic Prevention
Hackers and scammers are becoming more sophisticated in their approach to vulnerable networks, distributing not just viruses and malicious agents, but putting together blended attacks, increasing perimeter security for other scam methods, multiplying mutations of initial attacks and migrating new threats. The DFL-M510 Information Security Gateway can prevent these threats by blocking illegal agents attempting to hide amongst normal network traffic, eliminating harmful programs, identifying victims and providing a ZoneDefense Mechanism* to quarantine infected computers. You can detect and drop traffic with health concerns, including Trojan, illegal agents and Network Worms, based on policy rules applied to specific groups, hosts, IP addresses and subnets.

Seamless Integration
The DFL-M510 integrates easily with industry-standard network infrastructures and works exceptionally well when used in tandem with a D-Link NetDefend VPN Firewall. Deployed between your company's internal network and the network firewall, the DFL-M510 can be installed in in-line mode without causing any change to your current network architecture. It implements a hardware bypass function that avoids single points of failure and maximizes network connection in the event of a hardware crash.

With the DFL-M510, leverage your existing investments by adding anti-virus and anti-IM spam, identity authentication and management, session logging and archiving, as well as detection and usage reporting. Improve office productivity, reduce potential legal liability, and enhance your company's overall network security with the D-Link DFL-M510 NetDefend Information Security Gateway.
