1Gbit (AV + IDP) throughput, when?

When can we expect to see a Nebula Security Gateway for true gigabit WAN. None of the existing ones are relevant to today's internet via fiber connections.

The NSG device series have way to low (AV + IDP) throughput which is really strange as both USG Flex 500 and ZyWall ATP 500 have almost twice as high (AV + IDP) throughput as NSG300 and then they even have a much lower price point.

And why is it not possible to choose which interfaces IDP, AV, Content Filtering and Application analysis is active on. Application analysis, Content filtering, AV and IDP make good sense on a normale user LAN, but it does not necessarily all make the same sense on a LAN for advanced users, or on a DMZ interface.

When can we expect it to be possible to select security features ON and OFF on different LANs, VLANs?
And when can we expect a Nebula Security Gateway with 1Gbit (AV + IDP) UTM throughput?

    Hi @Mr_DJ
    USGFlex500 and ATP500 throughput is around 800 to 900 Mbps (when AV and IDP are on) and in next year USG Flex will also on cloud (Nebula) believe it can fulfill your request, so stay tuned. :)

    Also Content filtering can actually implement on the specific interface/Vlan, AV and IDP for now is not do able but we'll listen to the community member's suggestion.

  • Also requesting Security features to be applied on VLANs only and not the whole network. If you have a lot of guests, in a turist organisation, you don't want to take capacity off of the guest network. However, you want to be able to protect the employees LAN.

    @Nebula_Chris: is there any performance comparison available for USG, USG Flex, ATP and NSG for IDP, AV, CF? With all the security platforms now available, it is getting harder and harder for me to understand which one to choose. Today I am running an NSG300 and USG60 and would like to evolve to a single platform.

    Also: what (if any) are the differences between USG and NSG for IDP? The signature files have different versions, but I guess this is because of the different platforms.

    Here is the link where you can find the datasheet for all model.

    For your another question NSG series can support with Nebula, but USG series and ATP are not and in current stage USG Flex can only support standalone mode but soon in next year can also support with Nebula. =)

    For your last question the signature version is different because these are 2 different product line, but the protection mechanism are the same.

    Appreciate for your great work!!!  =) help the community member see the whole picture on Zyxel gateway.
    Please be aware that in datasheet there is the asterisk on SPI firewall and VPN throughput, which is the UDP and others are TCP result.

    There are some mistype on USG110, 210 310, I have done the correction in attached. :)
