The Stonesoft 5206 appliance is a versatile and modular security engine solution designed to meet the performance and scalability requirements of high-end data centers and large network central sites. It can be used in the Firewall/VPN role (layer 3) for secure routing, NAT, and IPsec VPN gateway purposes. It can be used in the IPS role (layer 2) in an IDS deployment or an Inline IPS deployment, or in the Layer 2 Firewall role.
In the Firewall/VPN role, the Stonesoft 5206 appliance provides high performance with unique clustering capabilities for up to 16 nodes. This provides very high IPsec VPN speeds as well as high-performance content and application inspection where needed.
In the IPS and Layer 2 Firewall roles, the Security Engine becomes transparent to the surrounding network devices. The inline IPS and Layer 2 firewall combine flexible deployment, evasion-aware network security, and application control into one dedicated appliance role.
