- QoS Assurance
Quality of Service assurance allows you to set different priorities for different types of Internet traffic to ensure that your mission critical connectivity can always get as much of the available Internet bandwidth as it needs.
- Content Filtering
The Vigor 3300V has several levels of Internet filtering including URL-keyword blocking and more comprehensive complete Surfcontrol™ category-based filtering.
The Vigor 3300V employs full Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) to help protect your network from intruders, rogue data and other potential attacks. In additional Dos (Denial-of-Service) and DDoS (Distributed DoS) attacks are protected against by robust coding, allowances for known attacks (e.g. SYN, ICMP Flood, Port Scanning etc.) and algorithms to detect specific rogue data patterns or protocol anomolies. By default, the firewall blocks all incoming data (except where it is an reply to outgoing request) and allows all outgoing data. The user can create specific packet filters to further restrict external/internal access. The Vigor 3300V also provides full NAT/PAT operation enabling you to run your private network on a private subnet.
Content Filtering & Parental Control
The Vigor 3300V has several levels of Internet and IP filtering. At the TCP/IP level, the firewall allows you to block specific internal or external IP addresses (or subnets) from being reached but the Vigor 3300V’s actual content filtering can provide application level control. In simple use, you can prevent access to web URLs which contain certain keywords by entering them into the router (e.g. ‘hotmail’ etc.). You can also block users from downloading potentially harmful java applets, EXE/ZIP/Multimedia files, cookies or using web proxies.
For more comprehensive protection, you can use Surfcontrol™ filtering, also known as Parental Control which permits access only to web sites within your selected categories (e.g. adult, gambling, news etc.). You can also exclude all ‘uncategorised’ sites. The Surfcontrol online database is continuously updated with new web sites, each one being categorised by Surfcontrol researchers. A 30-day trial licence is supplied with the Vigor 3300V; renewal is subject to an annual subscription fee – currently from approximately £25 (subject to change; Surfcontrol is an independent organsiation to DrayTek).
