Ensure safe broadband communications among branch or field offices, telecommuters and other remote network users by enclosing them in tunnels created with a Linksys EtherFast Cable/DSL VPN Router. The new BEFVP41 supports up to 70 simultaneous tunnels and is compatible with other popular IPSec VPN hardware and software. The router offers 56-bit DES or 168-bit 3DES encryption and automatic user authentication.
