From the Manufacturer

Big Security for Small Businesses -Unified Security Gateway ZyWALL USG20W

The ZyWALL USG50 is a Unified Security Gateway designed to provide complete, enterprise-level advanced security solutions to Small and Home Office networks, recommended for up to 10 PC users. Its flexible configuration is designed to help network administrators efficiently set up, manage, and enforce network security policies.

The USG50 features a 180Mbps throughput ICSA certified SPI Firewall, and is designed with state of the art security features including a granular, easily manageable Content Filter; choice of ZyXEL or Kaspersky Anti-Virus; Anti-Spam; and IDP (Intrusion Detection and Prevention) for maximum network security. It also provides bandwidth management for QoS of VoIP, videoconferencing, and other important applications, as well as multiple-WAN Failover and Load Balancing. IPSec, SSL, and L2TP* VPN functionality allows telecommuters and home workers quick and easy access to corporate resources with most any device or network setup.

Built with powerful Integrated High Performance Security architecture designed for Gigabit connections, a VPN throughput of 90Mbps, a UTM throughput of 24Mbps, up to 10,000 max sessions and 10 concurrent IPSec VPN tunnels, the USG50 has the power to monitor and protect even high-throughput networks without sacrificing performance.

With 4x Gigabit LAN/DMZ and 2x Gigabit WAN interfaces you can load balance and failover multiple ISP links, allowing you to safeguard even the largest high-bandwidth environments.

  • Comprehensive threat protection with firewall, VPN, anti-virus** content filtering** anti-spam, and intrusion detection and prevention**to secure networks against front line threats.
  • Robust hybrid VPN (IPSec, SSL, and L2TP*)
  • Easily connect with mobile devices
  • IPv6 Support
  • QoS options for latency-sensitive applications
  • Compatible with Vantage Reporting and Management software
  • 30day trial of the antivirus software

* Enabled by ZLD3.0 firmware upgrade
** Yearly subscription required

Flexible, secure VPN options

The USG50 is designed to allow secure VPN connections no matter what device or network settings are being used. IPSec VPN support allows secure connections to branch offices, partners, and headquarters; road warriors and telecommuters can use SSL to securely access the company network without having to install VPN software.

Easy Mobile Access

The new ZLD3.0 firmware upgrade enables L2TP support on all USG devices, making it easy for Android, iOS, and other mobile devices to establish VPN tunnels to remote networks directly from their native settings.

Comprehensive frontline threat protection

The USG50 employs a comprehensive suite of security systems to proactively protect networks from threats before they ever reach networked devices.

  • ZyXEL’s anti-spam service eliminates spam, phishing, virus, and malware e-mail threats before they ever reach company inboxes while ensuring legitimate messages don’t get lost in the deluge.
  • Administrators can choose between BlueCoat and Commtouch web filtering services to allow administrators to quickly and easily block websites both by category and by specific URL in order to protect networks from inappropriate web traffic, as well as to prevent viruses and spyware from forcing computers on a protected network to ‘phone home,’ saving bandwidth and preventing security breaches.
  • ZyXEL’s signature-based Intrusion Detection and Prevention service allows network administrators granular control over the network functionality of specific applications while providing an added layer of defense from the most dangerous Trojans and backdoor applications on the internet today. With support for up to 2,500 signatures for the most common threats, IDP provides a powerful defense against threats to your network – both from the outside and from within.
  • Gateway virus protection acts as a first line of defense from the worst viruses and malware on the internet. A 24/7 service with constant updates, administrators can choose between ZyXEL’s ICSA-Certified anti-virus or Kaspersky’s award winning virus protection system to keep the most dangerous viruses and malware from ever reaching a protected network.
  • The USG50’s Content Filtering service is an integrated security system powered by an administrator’s choice of BlueCoat or Commtouch filtering services. The service is designed to allow administrators to quickly and easily block websites both by category and by specific URL in order to protect networks from inappropriate web traffic, as well as to prevent viruses and spyware from forcing computers on a protected network to ‘phone home,’ saving bandwidth and preventing security breaches.

IPv6 Ready

With the advent of the new ZLD3.0 firmware, the USG50 is fully compatible with both IPv4 and IPv6 networks. Full backward compatibility allows VPN tunnels to be created between networks newly upgraded to IPv6 and older IPv4 networks, ensuring a seamless transition and painless network upgrades.

Network Optimization

The USG50’s network optimization functionality makes it far more than a network security device. Support for multiple WANs allows the USG to load-balance and fail-over, protecting networks from congestion and downtime. Bandwidth management options let administrators prioritize latency-sensitive applications like VoIP and videoconferencing, ensuring high-quality connections without lag or performance issues.

Vantage Management and Reporting

The USG50 supports the use of ZyXEL’s Vantage CNM and Vantage Reporting software, allowing centralized management and monitoring of multiple ZyWALL devices on a single network.

Vantage Reporting offers a comprehensive set of real-time and historical reports including firewall attacks, bandwidth usage, website usage, and more - all organized into an automated, easy-to-read format that can be viewed from anywhere. Administrators can use this data to easily identify security problems and their causes and take prompt action.

Vantage CNM provides a suite of diagnostic and management tools that allows management of multiple ZyWALL devices from a centralized interface, reducing the time, cost, and complexity involved in VPN and security management. VPN monitoring allows network administrators to actively troubleshoot VPN problems as they occur, while centralized configuration of UTM functionality allows network administrators to manage license subscriptions, update devices, and isolate and repair security problems across all ZyWALL devices on a network.

Style Name: ZWUSG20
I bought this router from a competitor but wanted to leave a review here. The amount of features that you get out of this router is unbelievable for the price you pay. I'll point out my pros and cons about the unit but I will start by saying that this is not a dlink/linksys/netgear plug and play router, you need to have a good understanding of networking in order to use the unit to even half of its full potential.

Pros:

IPSec VPN

SSL VPN (ridiculously easy to configure, and there is a network extension option so that you can actually be put on the network and have full access to your resources)

Extensive firewall options (seriously there's a ton of options)

Cisco-like CLI

Ability to integrate with Active Directory (I use this with the ssl vpn, can be kind of tricky to configure though)

Bandwidth Management (very flexible options for this, you can really lock down how much bandwidth devices/programs can have and set priorities as well)

Object based (this is really useful, instead of specifying IP address in NAT/Firewall/BWM you can create objects and then specify the object so that in case you need to change it, you only need to change it in one location. You can even group objects together to consolidate firewall/BWM rules)

True DMZ (you can actually dedicate a port to the DMZ and then just have the others on lan subnets)

Free U.S. based technical support for the life of the unit (I called them before purchasing the unit to get information on it and the gentlemen was very courteous and knowledgeable. It's comforting to know that if I have issues I can get a hold of someone, who is American, within minutes). The firmware updates are free for the life of the unit as well.

Style Name: ZWUSG100 Verified Purchase
This is one of the best priced and most feature rich routers I've ever used. I've used sonic walls about 5 years in the past and we had a linksys dual wan router before this. Once we needed more than one external ip the linksys just couldn't cut it. The firewall would either be fully off or fully on with secondary ip's, so we had to find another solution. Having used sonic walls in the past I looked at them first but a price/feature comparison lead me straight to the ZyWall USG100.

Setup for the device seems complicated at first, with assigning ip's to machines, ports to groups, and other things that I've not encountered with a firewall before. But these extra steps in the beginning save so much time later on. Instead of having routes and many firewall rules assigned to an ip, you would assign it to a virtual object stored in the zywall which has all of it's information. So when a change to the machines ip is required you don't have to go in and change every single rule and route, you just modify the virtual object and your done.

So far it's done everything we've needed and suprised us with its flexibility. And it would have 5 stars from me except for one slight failing. The vpn setup is a bit unruly when it comes to macs. Just for a standard vpn it requires a free 3rd party program (ipsecuritas) with a bit of setup that a normal user would balk at. Also the ssl vpn which ZyXEL boasts about is just a no go for macs, it just isn't supported.

It's a great product for a great price. It does everything well except for the vpn working with macs. If they can fix that then they would get 5 stars from me.

They ZyWALL USG50 has performed very well over the past 2 months. The firewall offers excellent hardware and features for the price. However, the subscription services from ZyXEL leave much to be desired.

The Good:
* Hardware appears to be solid
* GigE ports
* Stable software
* Good set of built-in non-subscription security features
* Very stable VPN implementation
* Very usable SSL VPN (does not require a subscription)
* Excellent throughput with security features turned on for the price

The Bad:
* The process of renewing IDP, AV, Content Filtering subscriptions is convoluted
* The built-in reporting functionality is somewhat limited (e.g. Content Filter reports) and the server-based report functionality does not seem to be implemented
* The quality of Content Filtering (AppPatrol) and IDP is questionable - protocols are miss-recognized and I am getting some false positives from the IDP
* ZyXEL support is non-responsive
* Functionality is rather limited unless you pay ~$220 / year for the subscription services - none of the promotional materials mention that you only get 30 days of IDP, AV, Anit-SPAM, and Content Filtering

While ZyXEL may not be that well known in the consumer network gear market, they make some good enterprise level gear. The USG line from ZyXEL is middle ground between simple consumer products and highly configurable enterprise products.

I have used the ZyXEL ZyWALL 2 PLUS Internet Security Firewall, 4 Port 10/100 Fast Ethernet Switch, w/ 5 IPSec VPN Tunnelsand the (discontinued) 1P for several years without issue; primarily for maintaining an IPSEC VPN tunnel. While the 2 Plus and 1P were more consumer grade, the USG20 is a step beyond. It has a plethora of configuration options available, and wringing out optimal performance from the device is not for the faint of heart. Having a background in network configuration will make the job easier, otherwise, plan to spend some time with the instruction manual.

ZyXEL's online resources, customer support and forum support are very good; they strive to make sure your problems get solved. They offer timely firmware updates to correct problems.

The ZyWALL USG20 not only has basic packet inspection firewall and traffic anomaly detection functionality, but has a significant number of features at this price point:

* Flexible Security Zones
* IPSEC and SSL VPN
* VLANs
* Bandwidth Management
* Content filtering/ Anti-SPAM
* Reporting

The UI is somewhat straightforward, however, the concept of Objects may confuse some. Objects are used to define re-used elements throughout the configuration. For example, an IP address range may be defined and named IP_RANGE_1.
