Highlights

Setup-Wizard

With this release version, the firewall gains an intuitive installation wizard for easy initial configuration in under five minutes—a few clicks of the mouse is all it takes. Internet access and IP address assignment, as well as UTM features such as anti-malware, IDS/IPS, and URL & content filtering, are now set up quickly and easily.

Cloud-managed Firewall

The LANCOM R&S®Unified Firewalls are now cloud-ready! Devices are connected to the LANCOM Management Cloud (LMC) by a simple yet secure PIN- or activation code-based pairing procedure. They then appear in the device overview, which offers clearly structured monitoring of the device status and also features an alerting function. A web tunnel provides access to the firewall management interface for remote configuration from the LMC.

Features

Application Management within the LANCOM Management Cloud

Via the LMC, firewalls can now be used stand-alone or in conjunction with LANCOM routers to create rules and then rolled out to the individual locations to block particular applications or allow direct access.

Ready-to-use integration of the LANCOM Advanced VPN Client

This firmware release makes it easy to create turnkey import profiles for the LANCOM Advanced VPN Client. These profiles are exported as *.ini files and can be imported into the client in just a few steps. This then uses the available connection medium to establish a secure VPN connection to the remote site.

Alerting and e-mail notification

As of this firmware version, the firewalls send e-mails with information about important events. This is performed either immediately when the event occurs, or in aggregated form. You can configure how often e-mails are sent for each type of event. Events include network disconnects, connection re-establishment, firewall restarts, or high availability switch-over.

User-specific application filter rules

As of this firmware release, the LANCOM R&S®Unified Firewalls also support the combination of user authentication and application filters. Specific application rules can be assigned to certain groups or even to individuals in the organization.
