The USG50 Internet Security Firewall with Dual-WAN, 4 Gigabit LAN/DMZ Ports from ZyXEL is designed for small businesses and provides real-time inspection and multi-layer network protection to prevent their networks from threats. It embodies Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) Firewall, Anti-Virus (AV), Intrusion Detection and Prevention (IDP), Content Filtering, Anti-Spam, and VPN (IPSec/SSL/L2TP) features. Additionally, the gateway offers complete security license and guarantees continuous firmware upgrades to save costs. Incorporating comprehensive security features in the connected devices, the USG 50 gateway safeguards your organization's customer and company records, intellectual properties, as well as critical resources from both external and internal threats.

Robust Security
The USG 50 gateway is built with a security architecture that provides real-time inspection to prevent networks from threats without sacrificing performance. Corporate networks are not only flawlessly secured but also benefit from significant performance enhancements on productivity and efficiency, since file loading, emailing, and information searching applications are processed at higher speeds.
Comprehensive IPv6 Support
The USG 50 gateway is IPv6-ready and is certified with "IPv6 Ready" Gold Logo. With IPv6 feature enabled, the USG 50 gateway ensures businesses with a smooth migration path from the IPv4-based networks to the full IPv6 infrastructure. It assigns IPv6 addresses to clients and passes the IPv6 traffics through the IPv4 environment. The USG 50 gateway supports dual-stack and IPv4 tunneling (6th and 6 to 4 transition tunnel) implementations for Internet connectivity to access IPv6 applications.
Easy VPN Reduces Operation Cost and Time
The USG 50 gateway is equipped with the "Easy VPN" solution to push configuration files to the VPN clients automatically. This eliminates the configuration efforts while securing the access at the same time. Additionally, the gateway supports L2TP VPN technology on iPhones, Android phones, and other mobile devices. This technology enables employees in remote places to connect to the headquarters with easy and free access.
Content Filter for Safer Web Surfing
The World Wide Web has become the primary target for network threats, since the Internet itself is a very effective malware delivery mechanism. With threats hidden directly in contents such as cookies, add-ons, and root-kits, it makes malware exceptionally difficult to detect.
The USG 50 gateway content filter solution provided by Blue Coat and Commtouch, reduces costs and extends protection by combining a comprehensive, integrated database featuring millions of URLs, IP addresses, and domains. With the solution, the USG 50 gateway enables real-time protection that deters emerging web threats, including malware and phishing, and blocks or monitors certain sites to maintain employee productivity.
Email Security
The USG 50 gateway delivers industry-leading protection powered by Commtouch, against spam, phishing, and virus-laden emails. The extremely high performance of Commtouch technology comes from the unique recurrent pattern detection (RPD) mechanism that possesses superior capability through analyzing millions of patterns each day (24 x 7 x 365) to block all the associated messages in real-time. In addition, the USG 50 gateway applies sender-based IP reputation to remove over 80% of unwanted mails and to take advantage of the zero-hour virus outbreak protection feature, which is capable of blocking or delaying suspicious messages hours before commercial anti-virus signatures are available.
Multiple 3G Card Support
The USG 50 gateway supports multiple WAN ports and 3G networks through USB or PC cards. With 3G connections, the USG 50 gateway enables load sharing or failover to deliver reliable network connectivity. It also supports more 3G cards with generic driver to ensure interoperability.
