NetScreen-5 provides a secure firewall solution for protecting a single user or a small LAN from the outside world in a single dedicated hardware appliance. NetScreen-S's Mi-featured firewal uses technology based on stateful inspection.
NetScreen's custom-built ASIC processes the firewal access policies and encryption algorithms in hardware, making it significantly higher performance than a software-only solution. The NetScreen-5 meets the performance needs of even the most demanding remote environments.


NetScreen-5's integrated VPN solution extends Intranet/Extranet security reach over pubic networks to remote and branch offices providing consistent UNMAN security across the network. This is accomplished through the use of encryption of data transferred over the wideurea using the industry standard IPSec protocol. NefScreen's IPSec implementation is interoperable with other vendors that have implemented standards-based IPSec.
