Secure and Speedy Network Access

The Cisco RVS4000 Gigabit Security Router, formerly part of the Linksys Business Series, delivers secure, high-speed network access with switching capabilities to help staff in small businesses safely connect to required resources. IPsec VPN capabilities allow employees working remotely to access files and email as securely as if they were in the office.

Fast Gigabit speeds, internally and externally, allow your employees to send and receive large files quickly and easily. Strong security features include a proven firewall with an intrusion prevention system (IPS) that scans deep—detecting and blocking most worms, Trojan horses, and denial-of-service attacks. An optional security service adds protection against spam, viruses, and other web threats.
