Network security appliance for multiple network configurations

Axiomtek : 27 August, 2008  (New Product)
The NA-821 from Axiomtek features built in UTM and firewall for high levels of network protection
Axiomtek introduces an extreme performance network security platform, the NA-821, which is a 1U rack-mountable form factor with up to 11 Gigabit Ethernet ports thru PCIe / PCI interface and up to 4-group LAN bypass segments for small and medium business market. The NA-821 supports the latest Intel Core2 Quad / Core2 Duo processor with a 800/1066/1333 MHz front side bus and is equipped with the Intel Q35+ICH9DO Express chipset. For greater flexible and easy maintenance, the NA-821 has two front-accessible expansion slots that allow developers to configure PCIe LAN modules based on their solution requirements. Powered by the Intel Core2 Quad / Core2 Duo processor with flexible expansion, the NA-821 is an ideal for IDS/IPS, VPN, content filtering, UTM, network security applications, and other embedded box solutions.

One of the most important features of the NA-821 is that it comes with 2 front-accessible slots for inserting PCIe Gigabit modules. In order to meet various customer requirements, other than the default 4 PCI Gigabit LAN ports with 2-group LAN bypass segments we offer four extending PCIe Gigabit modules with a plurality of RJ-45 or fibre ports, including a 4-port RJ-45 PCIe Gigabit module with 2-group LAN bypass segments (AX93125), a 2-port Fibre PCIe Gigabit module (AX93126), a 2-port RJ-45 PCIe Gigabit module (AX93127), and a 3-port RJ-45 PCIe Gigabit module (AX93128). There are five different configuration options customers can select based on their solution requirements.

"Today's networks demand powerful processing because more and more applications run simultaneously. By blending the Intel Core2 Quad processor with the Intel Q35 chipset, we've been able to help our customers to face these computing challenges by offering significant performance, stability, and power advantages," said Philip Wei, Product Manager of Applied Computing Platforms Division at Axiomtek. "Its friendly design also gives users the advantage of being able to develop network security solutions according to their demands and reduce time to market. The NA-821 is a flexible multi-Gigabit network security appliance designed for VPN, firewall, UTM, and network management applications"

This powerful network security platform supports two high bandwidth DDR2 667/800 DIMM sockets up to 4GB memory. Additionally, the NA-821 has powerful storage interfaces including two SATA 2.5in HDD and CompactFlash. To prevent problems from platform shutdown, the NA-821 supports up to four groups of LAN bypass function through WDT and GPIO pin definitions. The network security platform also offers powerful management functions, including BIOS redirection and remote control through Intel Active Management Technology (AMT), to improve IT efficiency and system security. For easy access, the front panel also has one RS-232 RJ console port, two USB 2.0 ports, and LED indicators that monitor power and HDD activities. One Mini PCI slot, one PCI slot and one PCI-X 64-bit/133MHz slot (optional) are available for expansion. Moreover, the NA-821 supports mainstream Linux kernel 2.6 and 2.4 operating systems.
