Sleek, compact product ideal for home users, remote workers, and small businesses who need robust firewall and VPN throughput
September 8, 2020 (AUSTIN, TX) Netgate, the leading provider of open-source secure networking solutions, today announced the availability of the SG-2100, the latest addition to the company’s highly popular secure networking appliance family.
The SG-2100 features a dual-core ARM64 Cortex A53 1.2 GHz CPU, dedicated 1 GbE WAN port (RJ45/SFP combo), (4) 1 GbE Marvell switch ports (with a 2.5 Gbps uplink), 4 GB of DDR4 RAM, and upgradable storage. Packaged into a visually sleek and compact form factor - with low power draw and silent, fanless operation - the product is well-suited for desktop, wall, or shelf deployment.
At $299, the SG-2100 is an attractive, robust and affordable option for demanding home, remote worker, and small business use - capable of delivering 1.56 Gbps throughput as a router, 881 Mbps as a firewall, or 118 Mbps as an IPsec VPN solution.
With 4 GB of RAM, the SG-2100 has the ability to simultaneously support a wide range of pfSense® software add-on packages - especially more demanding packages like IDS/IPS that rely upon memory-based security rule sets. As well, the memory capacity positions it strongly for business and branch office deployments in search of low-cost VPN performance.
“The lower end of our appliance product line has traditionally been very attractive for home users, remote workers, and small businesses - especially given the SG-1100 and SG-3100,” said Jamie Thompson, Netgate CEO. “However, the SG-1100 is not designed for more memory-intensive firewall capabilities like IDS/IPS, and the SG-3100 is a little more than many users needed, as well as being more expensive. The SG-2100 provides a nice midpoint between the two - delivering robust firewall, VPN performance and pfSense software expandability, at a sub-$300 price point. With the new world order of global work from home stemming from the pandemic - and given that many organizations may not return back to the office any time soon, if ever - the SG-2100 is a great security gateway solution.”
