ICSA Labs, an independent division of Cybertrust Inc., is a trusted international authority in the information security industry.

By passing stringent testing criteria in ICSA Labs, NetDefend Firewall demonstrates D-Link!|s commitment to security.
Building comprehensive solutions
D-Link provides a full range of total network solutions, and has created comprehensive product lines covering all areas of networking, including entry-level to high-end switches, wireless LAN products, network security and more. One of D-Link!|s goals is to integrate these products rather than just putting them together, especially for network security. For example, D-Link has spent over five years developing their network security products, and one year ago, announced that they had successfully integrated their high-end xStack switches with their ZoneDefense technology enabled NetDefend firewalls.
Combining advanced and robust features in a single unit
D-Link's NetDefend Firewalls combine dedicated firewall core architecture with a high density multi-network interface platform, and integrates virtual private network(VPN), intrusion detection and prevention(IDP/IPS), detailed bandwidth management, multi-line failover to WAN, OSPF, policy-based routing, server load balancing, web-based user authentication and D-Link's ZoneDefense end-point security technology. By creating high-quality products, D-Link helps customers face the challenges of networking.
ICSA Labs Corporate Firewall Certified
Furthermore, D-Link's NetDefend Firewall passed the strictest firewall certification in ICSA Labs-Corporate Firewalls. The D-Link DFL-2500 NetDefend Firewall had to pass a series of rigorous tests, including system installation and configuration, setting security policies, system management, system logging, event testing, port security and more. Not only did the NetDefend Firewall passes these tests, but it also earned praise from ICSA Labs' Network Security Labs for unique features in the web administration interface that allow administrators to safely make changes to the firewall's configuration remotely.
