    Security without compromise

    The Vigor2960 series also provides high-security firewall options with both IP-layer and content based protection. The DoS/DDoS prevention and URL/Web content filter strengthen the security outside and inside the network. The enterprise-level CSM (Content Security Management) enables users to control and manage IM (Instant Messenger) and P2P (Peer to Peer) applications more efficiently. The CSM hence prevents inappropriate content from distracting employees and impeding productivity. Furthermore, the CSM can keep office networks threat-free and available. With CSM, you can protect confidential and essential data from modification or theft.

    By incorporating CYREN’s GlobalView Web Content Filter services, DrayTek ensures its customers’ networks are protected by the best available security technology.

    Enterprise-level VPN Network

    With a dedicated VPN co-processor, the hardware encryption of AES/DES/3DES and hardware key hash of SHA-1/MD5 are seamlessly handled, thus maintaining maximum router performance. For remote tele-workers and inter-office links, the Vigor2960 supports up to 200 simultaneous VPN tunnels (such as IPsec/PPTP/L2TP protocols) and the VPN throughput can reach up-to 400Mbps (IPsec).

    Centralized Management

    The embedded Central VPN Management (CVM) will let network administrator register up to 16 remote routers but run concurrent remote management over 12 remote routers.

    VPN trunkingVPN load-balancing and VPN backup
    LDAP/Active DirectoryLightweight directory access protocol. The enterprises use LDAP/Active Directory authentication technology to allow administrator, IT personnel and users to be authenticated when trying to access company’s intranet environment.
    NAT-traversal (NAT-T)VPN over routes without VPN pass-through
    PKI certificateDigital signature (X.509)
    IKE AuthenticationPre-shared key; IKE phase1 aggressive/standard modes & phase 2 selectable lifetimes.
    AuthenticationHardware-based MD5, SHA-1
    EncryptionMPPE and hardware-based AES/DES/3DES
    RADIUS ClientAuthentication for PPTP remote dial-in
    DHCP over IPsecBecause DrayTek add a virtual NIC on the PC, thus, while connecting to the server via IPSec tunnel, PC will obtain an IP address from the remote side through DHCP protocol, which is quite similar with PPTP.
    GRE over IPsecGRE is used when IP packets need to be sent from one network to another without being parsed by any intervening routers
    Dead Peer Detection (DPD)When there is traffic between the peers, it is not necessary for one peer to send a keep-alive to check for liveness of the peer because the IPSec traffic serves as implicit proof of the availability of the peer
    Smart VPN software utilityProvided free of charge for teleworker convenience (Windows 7/XP including 32/64 bit).

    Time Schedule ControlSet rule according to your specific office hours
    Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI)Outgoing/Incoming traffic inspection based on connection information
    Content Security Management(CSM)Appliance-based gateway security and content filtering
    Multi-NATYou have been allocated multiple public IP address by your ISP. You hence can have a one-to-one relationship between a public IP address and an internal/private IP address. This means that you have the protection of NAT (see earlier) but the PC can be addressed directly from the outside world by its aliased public IP address, but still by only opening specific ports to it (for example TCP port 80 for an http/web server)
    Port redirectionThe packet is forwarded to a specific local PC if the port number matches with the defined port number. You can also translate the external port to another port locally
    DMZ Port*This opens up a single PC completely. All incoming packets will be forwarded onto the PC with the local IP address you set. The only exceptions are packets received in response to outgoing requests from other local PCs or incoming packets which match rules in the other two methods. The precedence is as follows : Port Redirection > Open Ports > DMZ
    Policy-based IP packet filterThe header information of an IP packet (IP or Mac source/destination addresses; source /destination ports; DiffServ attribute; direction dependent, bandwidth dependent, remote-site dependent
    DoS/DDoS preventionAct of preventing customers, users, clients or other computers from accessing data on a computer
    IP address anti-spoofingSource IP address check on all interfaces only IP addresses classified within the defined IP networks are allowed

    System Management
    Web-based user interface (HTTP)Integrated web server for the configuration of routers via Internet browsers with HTTP. Quick start wizard
    Quick start wizardLet administrator adjust time zone and promptly set up the Internet (PPPoE, PPTP, Static IP, DHCP)
    User managementDial-in access management (PPTP/L2TP and mOTP)
    CLI(Command Line Interface, Telnet/SSH)Remotely administer computers via the telnet.
    DHCP client/relay/serverProvides an easy-to configure function for your local IP network
    Dynamic DNSWhen you connect to your ISP, by broadband or ISDN you are normally allocated an dynamic IP address. i.e. the public IP address your router is allocated changes each time you connect to the ISP. If you want to run a local server, remote users cannot predict your current IP address to find you.
    Administration access controlThe password can be applied to authentication of administrators.
    Configuration backup/restoreIf the hardware breaks down, you can recover the failed system within an acceptable time. Through TFTP, the effective way is to backup and restore configuration between remote hosts.
    Built-in diagnostic functionDial-out trigger, routing table, ARP cache table, DHCP table, NAT sessions table, data flow monitor, traffic graph, ping diagnosis, trace route.
    NTP client/call schedulingThe Vigor has a real time clock which can update itself from your browser manually or more conveniently automatically from an Internet time server (NTP). This enables you to schedule the router to dial-out to the Internet at a preset time, or restrict Internet access to certain hours. A schedule can also be applied to LAN-to-LAN profiles (VPN or direct dial) or some of the content filtering options.
    Tag-based VLAN (802.1Q)By means of using a VLAN ID, a tag-based VLAN can identify VLAN group membership. The VLAN ID provides the information required to process the traffic across a network.Furthermore, the VLAN ID associates traffic with a specific VLAN group.
    Firmware upgrade via TFTP/HTTPUsing the TFTP server and the firmware upgrade utility software, you may easily upgrade to the latest firmware whenever enhanced features are added.

    Dynamic RoutingIt is with routing protocol of RIP v2/OSPFv2/V3*. Learning and propagating routes.
    Support BGP routing protocol.
    Static RoutingAn instruction to re-route particular traffic through to another local gateway, instead of sending it onto the Internet with the rest of the traffic. A static route is just like a ‘diversion sign’ on a road.
