D-Link Middle East, the end-to-end computer network solutions provider for consumers and businesses, today announced that the company’s D-Link® NetDefend™ Firewall series has received the IPSec 1.3 Enhanced Certification from ICSA Labs.
To date, D-Link’s appliances running the NetDefendOS security operating system have not only obtained the highest level of ICSA Labs' firewall certification, known as the Firewall 4.1 with Corporate Level, but also satisfied the stringent testing criteria of the IPSec VPN certification. In order to achieve the IPSec VPN certification, the product must pass interoperability testing with all other certified devices, in addition to satisfying rigorous and thorough testing in encryption, authentication, data integrity and multiple concurrent IPSec tunnels with a single IPSec peer.
“ICSA Labs Firewall and IPSec certifications are recognized worldwide as the benchmark for network security industry excellence,” says Harrison Albert, Regional Sales Director at D-Link Middle East. “D-Link’s achievement of the latest ICSA Labs Firewall 4.1 as well as the ICSA Labs IPSec 1.3 Enhanced certification once again demonstrates D-Link’s ongoing commitment to providing the highest quality standards in network security”, Harrison adds.
D-Link’s NetDefend Firewalls provide a comprehensive suite of security features that are blended into a dedicated platform: NetDefendOS that seamlessly integrates Virtual Private Network (VPN), Intrusion Detection and Prevention (IDP/IPS), Gateway Anti-Virus, Anti-Spam Filtering, Web Content Filtering, Traffic Management, High Availability, and D-Link’s innovative end-point security technology – ZoneDefense™. In addition, NetDefendOS includes two new features: outbound load balance, and LDAP authentication, improvement designs to offer customers a better solution. Delivering high quality products with value-added security features, D-Link provides small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and enterprises high quality security solutions at unparalleled price and performance to meet the demands of rapidly evolving IT challenges.
ICSA Labs IPSec Version 1.3 Enhanced Certified
In obtaining ICSA Labs’ latest and strictest IPSec Version 1.3 Enhanced Certification, the D-Link NetDefend Firewall Family was run through a series of rigorous tests, including Internet Key Exchange (IKE), Encapsulation Security, robust cryptography algorithm, authentication using certificates, system logging and more. Moreover, NetDefend Firewall Family was passed the criteria of IPSec Remote Access Client (IRAC), which is the latest requirement in version 1.3 Enhanced Certification. Not only did the NetDefend Firewall pass these tests, but it also earned praise from ICSA Labs’ Network Security Labs for comprehensive features that allow administrators to systematically design a secure environment.
