AAEON’s FWS-2260 to Secure Small-scale Networks with New-Gen Processor


For all Your Small Scale Network Security Needs


(Taipei, Taiwan) April 12, 2016 —AAEON®, a leading manufacturer of advanced hardware platforms for network computing and security solutions, unveils the FWS-2260 network appliance, a table-top device meant to bring security to small-scale networks.

Available in both dual and quad-core versions of Intel® Celeron® N3000 Series SoC (Codename Braswell), the device is a multi-purpose network appliance that empowers Intrusion detection/prevention, WAN optimization, network access control, load balancing, web content filtering, unified threat management, and wireless network security.

The device’s capacity as a multi-purpose network security appliance makes it conducive in locations where there is insufficient space or too impractical for large, bulky, server-level devices, such as in branch/home offices, SMBs or retail outlets. It is also compactly designed with a dimension of 230 x 178 x 44 mm and uses a fanless thermal solution.

A powerful CPU aside, the device is made to be compatible with both wired and wireless signals as a redundancy of one another and carries six GbE LAN ports with LAN bypass (selected SKUs only). A MiniCard slot, SATA 6.0Gb/s, and USB 3.0 ports are available for expansion needs and optional TPM modules can be added for enhanced security.

“Small, secured, superior: these are the words that defines the FWS-2260” said Fredy Hsu, Product Manager of AAEON’s Network Security Division “We want to make an all-in-one appliance desirable for all administrators of small networks. And with the power of the new chips, this goal is realized with the FWS-2260”.
