ZoneAlarm Z100G

Check Point this morning unwrapped a new version of the ZoneAlarm Z100G, a Wi-Fi router designed for an extra level of security. The new version gives greater control over the hardware, ZoneAlarm-inspired firewall and includes a monitor to track intrusion attempts as well as the ability to visually add and change policy rules to allow certain apps. It further brings a built-in DNS server for secure outside connections, anti-spam filtering and Xbox Live support for gamers that want to play without compromising the rest of the network.

The router continues to perform its own antivirus scans and deep packet filtering while still providing a boosted 802.11g connection that runs up to 108Mbps with supporting network adapters; running the full firewall brings the peak speed back to 70Mbps, while a fully secure VPN link reaches 5Mbps. Four Ethernet jacks supply wired connections.

Despite its connection to the Windows software, the Z100G can be accessed and controlled by any computer with a modern web browser. Check Point is already making the new version available and sells it today for $150.
