We have worked with multiple firewall and switch vendors, but we only sell Netgear. Netgear gives us a constantly improving firmware over the life of the model. Their VAR support is US-based and gets us directly to Level II for any question. The equipment is solid and the programming is flexible.
Netgear has a switching and firewall solution for every size business. From unmanaged to Smart Switches, to fully Managed, Netgear has a size and model that is right for your business. Netgear’s ProSafe VPN firewalls provide the connectivity needed for the branch office without user-based software. The multi-WAN capability in these firewalls allows the business to use multiple ISP connectivity. This provides better office uptime. Netgear wireless products provide solid wireless coverage at wireless N speeds.
If you want to augment your security, look at Netgear’s STM and UTM line. The STM behind your firewall provides SPAM and Virus protection as well as employee web control. The UTM line provides intrusion protection plus SPAM and Virus protection while replacing the firewall. You can find more information on our Netgear’s Prosafe STM and UTM models here.
Netgear works through their partner system to support their warranties. Don’t be fooled by grey models from non-partners on the web. Work with a Netgear Value added Reseller to get the full value of your purchase. Archimedes offers the full Netgear line at competitive pricing.
