The new version includes new security features and enhancements, providing advanced enterprise level protection for consumers’ home or home office wireless networks.

“Home wireless networks, if not adequately secured, are extremely vulnerable to infiltration by hackers,” said Juliette Sultan, head of global marketing at Check Point. “Unlike other routers that just bundle various features, the ZoneAlarm Secure Wireless Router Z100G was designed specifically with security in mind. It employs the very same technologies that Check Point uses in its enterprise level routers, making it unlike any other consumer router on the market.”

As the first true Unified Threat Management (UTM) appliance specifically created for consumers, the ZoneAlarm Secure Wireless Router Z100G enables users to surf the Internet with super-fast wired and wireless networking and enjoy the highest level of protection against hackers, malware, identity theft, and more. The Z100G complements the security offered by the award-winning ZoneAlarm PC software and leverages Check Point’s renowned enterprise-class embedded NGX security technologies.

* Enhanced policy editors allow users to drag and drop firewall policy rules for greater flexibility and ease of use
* Built-in DNS server provides users with access to their networked items using their internal LANs

* Xbox LIVE support allows users to securely host games online

The ZoneAlarm Secure Wireless Router Z100G integrates Check Point’s best-of-breed INSPECT Stateful Inspection firewall technology and SmartDefense Intrusion Prevention, which dynamically filters packets of information all the way down to the most deeply embedded data. The Z100G delivers gateway antivirus, firewall, parental control measures, and antispam, as well monthly security reports, print server, bandwidth monitoring and extended range. Finally, the Z100G also includes Virtual Private Network (VPN) technology, offering users the unique ability to securely access their network devices from a remote location, without the added expense of additional software.

Concluded Sultan, “Because the Z100G uses the same technology that Check Point delivers to 98% of Fortune 500 companies, it delivers uncompromising protection, connectivity and power not found anywhere else in the consumer and home office market.”
