By placing a firewall between your local network (LAN/WLAN) and the Internet, you can make it very hard for hackers to gain access to your local network. That is, if you have configured your firewall correctly. This can be especially important for businesses and people with sensitive information on their computer systems. A very neat function most hardware firewalls have is the ability to securely connect the local area network to other local area networks in different locations over the Internet, thus creating a Virtual Private Network (VPN). With VPN you can safely share network resources with remote offices or play games with your friends as if you were on the same LAN!

VPN (Virtual Private Network) Connection
The ZyWALL 2 supports ICSA certified IPSec VPN suitable for remote site to central server deployment. Data encryption over the Internet ensures secure transmission between two sites, eliminating the necessity for expensive leased lines, and enabling global interconnectivity at a minimal expense.

Secured Firewall Protection
The ICSA Firewall certified ZyWALL 2 provides robust firewall protection and reliable security. Based on Stateful Packet Inspection and Denial of Service (DoS) technology, it provides the first line of defense against hackers, network intruders, and other hazardous threats.

Fail-Over and Fail-Back technology forward WAN port traffic to backup ISDN or Analog modems in the event of WAN port connection failure. Once WAN port connections are reestablished, traffic automatically returns. An additional gateway may also be connected to the ZyWALL 2 to ensure availability of the Internet through a secondary local network. The ZyWALL 2 backup features increase
reliability while decreasing device maintenance, IT consulting costs, and daily operation losses.
