Zyxel Networks announced that it is adding support for its 5G/LTE devices to the Nebula ecosystem, as well as providing security services directly to wireless access points. All companies, regardless of size or industry, now have an increasing need for digital transformation as they gradually abandon traditional business models in favor of social media presence, e-commerce, virtual operations and remote working. Continuous access to the Internet has thus become a must-have requirement for all.
Primary or backup connection – easy to deploy and configure
With Zyxel 5G/LTE routers, customers can set up a high-speed link to the WAN in locations where there is no cable infrastructure or create a backup connection to the network. Router management is available directly from Nebula, making the work of system administrators more comfortable and the security of the distributed network more controllable.
Wi-Fi security that evolves without user intervention
Zyxel implemented a new, convenient security service directly for access points Connect and Protect CNP . The service offers a flexible approach to security and can be configured on certain models of Zyxel wireless access points installed in home offices of remote employees, in specific locations within the company, such as accounting departments, branch offices, etc. d. No need for a separate firewall: Nebula brings all the functionality right to the access point. With a few clicks, the CNP access point prevents malicious Web sites, data theft, hacking attempts, or non-critical applications from being prioritized.
