Detect and block intruders, and remain operable while under attack
D-Link, a provider of connectivity for small, medium and large enterprise business networking, has launched its new series of Gigabit and Fast Ethernet Web Smart III Switches that enables organisations to construct a secure and productive network environment cost effectively.
These Web Smart Switches come with comprehensive set of management features paired with a minimally complex user interface for straightforward configuration, the company said.
Web Smart Switches provide network administrators with a wide array of options for keeping their network running securely and efficiently.
The Web management interface and SmartConsole utility provide a system for administrators to manage a mid-sized network that might otherwise present a challenge.
Web Smart Switches strengthen security through the use of access control lists (ACL), ensuring that sensitive network resources are restricted only to authorised users.
The new switches detect and block intruders that attempt to sniff data or send fake ARP packets that could disrupt network traffic. These switches are also screen rogue DHCP server packets to prevent unauthorised IP assignments.
D-Link Middle East and Africa regional director Harrison Albert said the D-Link Web Smart Switch series features broad management options, advanced security features and VLAN support that make Web Smart Switches an excellent choice for small and medium businesses interested in managing their network effectively.
A Web Smart Switch can be deployed as a primary core for optimal performance, giving administrators control over security, bandwidth, and topology.
Alternatively, these switches can be deployed at the network edge to manage and eliminate bandwidth constraints while enhancing security, while the installation scenario, reliability is ensured through Loopback Detection (LBD) and cable diagnostics, the company said.
The new switches feature the Auto Voice VLAN function that automatically identifies voice traffic and maintains optimal audio quality for VOIP calls.
Web Smart Switches are available for Fast Ethernet (DES-1210 Series) or Gigabit Ethernet (DGS-1210 Series) applications in several convenient port configurations.
