Virtual firewall with UTM for next-generation security

Intelligent, consistent network security is no longer something to wish for, despite maximum flexibility and low operating and maintenance costs at the same time: Operated in cloud scenarios or conventional networks, the next-generation firewall (NGFW) LANCOM vFirewall offers the same security and functionality as the hardware-based LANCOM R&S®Unified Firewalls. It has no conventional hardware to take up space. The LANCOM vFirewall simply operates in a virtualized environment based on a hypervisor such as VMware ESXi, Oracle VirtualBox, Microsoft Hyper-V, or KVM. The flexible licensing model allows your virtual firewall to "grow" with your needs in terms of UTM performance and network size.

Technical features

  • State-of-the-art security techniques such as R&S®PACE2 Deep Packet Inspection and SSL Inspection
  • Preventive security against as yet unknown threats through integrated Sandboxing and Machine Learning
  • Custom application and filter rules for increased security via Application Management and Content Filter
  • Virtual, software-based firewall for operation with VMware ESXi, Oracle VirtualBox, Microsoft Hyper-V or KVM
  • Intuitive network visualization for easy implementation of security and compliance requirements
  • Convenient firewall management via intuitive Web interface, LANCOM Management Cloud, or LANCOM R&S®UF Command Center
  • Operation in a high-availability cluster (HA cluster) possible without additional costs or licenses
  • Runtime-based licensing model (1 or 3 years) in sizes S to XL


Our security pledge: next-generation security with UTM

With threats to networks constantly growing, trusted security is anything but a given. As the keystone of network security, next-generation firewalls (NGFW) combine common security mechanisms with the latest generation technologies. In the triad of security, compliance, and usability, the top priorities are effective protection of your network and maximum prevention against threats that are not yet known – this promise applies without restriction to all LANCOM R&S®Unified Firewalls and the LANCOM vFirewall. They are developed in Germany, are guaranteed to be free of hidden access options (backdoors), and thus bear the trust mark "IT Security made in Germany".
