Even as the internet network expanded its footprint and the government and private organizations created their own local area networks (LAN) and wide area networks (WAN), the concept of protecting the data that flows through these networks has assumed a great significance. There are people out there trying to lay their hands on the data by hacking into these networks. If you are in the profession of maintaining or owning any such network, you should be looking for a fail-safe security network appliance. But you will wish to gather as much background information on these gadgets involving advanced security technology as possible.
The AvaLAN Wireless NetAppliance is a unique device that, in a nutshell, acts as a “Layer 2 Tunneling Ethernet Packet Encryptor”. It creates a NIST certified FIPS 140-2 Level 2 encrypted Virtual Private Network (VPN) that can connect two Local Area Networks (LAN) by tunneling through an unsecured Wide Area Network (WAN) such as the internet. This NetAppliance performs the same functions of far more expensive and complex equipment and software in a simple, cost effective, and efficient manner.
