High-Performance, Highly Secure Connectivity for the Small Office
® RV220W Network Security Firewall lets small offices enjoy secure, reliable, wired and wireless, broadband connectivity - to the Internet, other offices, and employees working remotely. This high-performance wireless router helps improve productivity by providing fast access to the large files and rich media applications your employees use every day.
Designed to provide greater flexibility for highly secure, remote connections, the RV220W supports both IP Security (IPsec) and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) VPN, often referred to as hybrid VPN. IPsec VPN enables other offices to connect just as if they were physically connected to the primary business network. SSL VPN, which allows secure connections through any web browser, is application-specific, offering a means of extending controlled access to business partners and others, without compromising critical data.
To help further safeguard your network and data, the Cisco RV220W includes business-class security features and optional cloud-based Web filtering. Setup is simple, using a browser-based configuration utility and wizards.
