Mail Security in the Firewall

The X-Series Firewall enforces mail security in the firewall by transparently scanning incoming and outgoing SMTP and SMTPS connections for malware and by checking the reputation of the sender's IP address via a DNS blacklist (DNSBL).

For more information, see Mail Security in the Firewall and Virus Protection in the Firewall.

Virus Protection for FTP in the Firewall

The X-Series Firewall can transparently scan FTP traffic passing through the Forwarding Firewall service for malware. If malware is detected, the file is discarded and the file transfer is terminated.  

For more information, see Virus Protection in the Firewall and How to Configure Virus Scanning in the Firewall for FTP Traffic.

DHCP Relay

DHCP relaying allows you to share a single DHCP server across logical network segments that are separated by the firewall.  

For more information, see How to Configure a DHCP Relay.

CudaLaunch

CudaLaunch offers secure remote access to your organization's applications and data from mobile devices. CudaLaunch is available for iOS and Android devices via the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. Both versions offer the same functionality. Full Device VPN uses the same VPN group policy.

For more information, see CudaLaunch.

NAC for SSL VPN

NAC-RN.png

SSL VPN Network Access Control (NAC) limits access to the web portals of the SSL VPN service according to a variety of factors that are not connected to the user. Users who fail the NAC check are not allowed to log in until they have a conforming system.

For more information, see How to Configure NAC for SSL VPN.

SSL VPN Web Forwards Improvements

Create web forwards to allow SSL VPN users to access web-based internal applications. There are predefined web forward types for Outlook Web Access and SharePoint servers as well as generic settings that allow you full control over how the web content is rewritten.

For more information, see How to Configure an Outlook Web Access Web ForwardHow to Configure a SharePoint Web Forward, and How to Configure a Generic Web Forward.

SSL VPN User Attributes

User attributes are placeholder variables used to personalize web forwards or to configure single sign-on authentication. They are created by the admin and filled in by the end user in either the desktop or mobile portal.

For more information, see How to Use and Create Attributes.

Single Sign-On for Web Forwards

Web forwards can be configured to automatically log the user in when accessing web forwards requiring authentication. Both HTTP and form-based (POST, GET, and JavaScript) authentication is supported. User attributes allow you to use different user credentials than those used to log into the SSL VPN to authenticate to a web application made available as a web forward.

For more information, see How to Configure Single Sign-On for Web Forwards.

SSL VPN Self-Provisioning for VPN Templates

The SSL VPN service allows end users to self-provision their VPN client on Windows, macOS, or iOS devices. To automatically download and install the configuration, the user must log into one of the SSL VPN portals and click the VPN Template provisioning link. VPN templates are created as a part of the client-to-site VPN configuration.

For more information, see How to Configure VPN Templates in the SSL VPN.
