New SD-WAN Gateway by EnGenius Delivers Performance and Flexibility

Traditional WANs often struggle with performance issues, single points of failure, and limited scalability. Their rigid connections and limited backup options can't always keep pace with today's cloud-driven businesses.

Because businesses rely more on cloud applications and prioritize security, SD-WAN steps in with its dynamic multipath routing, direct cloud on-ramps and built-in security features. Additionally, SD-WAN offers cost savings through connection consolidation and reduced MPLS dependency, while simplifying branch office deployments and boosting overall network agility.

In short, SD-WAN delivers secure, efficient and effective networking solutions that simplify network deployment and management.

EnGenius, a provider of intelligent connectivity solutions for enterprises, is aware of the reliance on SD-WAN and announced the expansion of its SD-WAN Gateway portfolio with the launch of the EnGenius (News - Alert) ESG620 Gateway.

The EnGenius ESG620 Gateway is a powerful, rack-mountable and versatile solution that provides network engineers with effortless setup, high-performance and enterprise-level security solutions. Features include Auto-VPN with healing, Auto-NAT traversal for multi-peer SD-WAN setup and EnGenius' new client VPN feature, SecuPoint.

SecuPoint eliminates the need for manual configuration and complex certificates, saving IT administrators time and effort. It also provides a secure VPN experience for employees, ensuring that their data is protected when working remotely.

Other features include dual-WAN, fiber SFP+ and 2.5 GbE with USB 3.0 port for max performance, load balancing and cellular failover as well as WAN failover preference for enhanced flexibility and reliability.

These features ensure enhanced security and simplified business connectivity. 

“The ESG620 extends our existing gateway lineup, providing added value and flexibility through multiple VPN options and prioritized failover preferences,” said Bryan Slayman, Senior Product Line Manager at EnGenius.

The gateway is designed with advanced cloud management, making it compatible with various environments and consolidates everything under a unified and intuitive interface. The enhanced cloud interface allows users to oversee and control every aspect of their network. This means that from power distribution units to access points, switches and gateways, each device can be explored for detailed visibility and a myriad of options.

And, just like the ESG510 and ESG610 gateways, which leverage the capabilities of EnGenius Cloud, ESG620 benefits from seamless system maintenance, automatic updates and the integration of new features.

“This rack-mountable version meets the needs of many SME customers and delivers exceptional connectivity, enhanced security and sophisticated management for enterprises," said Slayman.

The ESG620 is available for purchase, starting this month, through authorized EnGenius resellers and distributors.
