ADTRAN’s NetVanta 2000 Series of Unified Threat Management (UTM) Solutions


The traditional corporate LAN is evolving into a distributed global network that connects employees, partners and customers over multiple Internet, intranet, extranet and VoIP channels. The modern mobile workforce demands more solutions for secure access to more resources from more remote devices and platforms than ever before. With new methods of gaining entry, financially motivated criminal attackers have unleashed ultra-sophisticated threats, increasing the risk of compromised data, system downtime, reduced productivity, bandwidth consumption, and monetary theft. Network attackers have become more sophisticated, and their attacks more targeted. Many of today’s attacks are blended attacks, which use multiple techniques to try to infiltrate your network. IT administrators now must address network security in a way that enables and extends business beyond the traditional perimeter. However, managing multiple, separate security tools can be overwhelming, inefficient and expensive. In response, ADTRAN expanded its solution portfolio with purpose built NetVanta 2000 Series Unified Threat Management (UTM) appliances bringing a new level of efficiency to the security field.

Tomorrow's Technology Today
Security Solution for Enterprise (Small and SOHO)


ADTRAN’s targeted, multi-tiered, security solution combines intrusion prevention, anti-virus and anti-spyware with application intelligence and control to allow customers to combine high-performance, feature-rich internetworking solutions with UTM, creating a best-of-breed solution from a single vendor. Specifically, ADTRAN’s UTM solutions offer a wealth of benefits, including real-time gateway protection against the latest viruses, spyware, intrusions, software vulnerabilities and other malicious code; uncompromising performance with Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection (RFDPI) engine provided by SonicWALL. It consolidates and conserves resources by running all vital security services from a single UTM appliance and offers optional 3G wireless modem support for business continuity or rapid deployment in remote locations. Plus UTM offers optional 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN (WLAN) for secure high-speed wireless connectivity; and ensures uptime and resiliency in business operations with the multiple failover features. UTM is designed to handle central sites and distributed mid-enterprise networks.

All of the NetVanta 2000 appliances come with a limited lifetime warranty and 12 months of continuous threat protection, SSL and IPSec VPN clients, anti-virus and anti-spyware clients, and management under a centralized management system. ADTRAN has partnered with SonicWall to offer centralized NetVanta 2000 management through SonicWall's Global Management Solution, which provides real time monitoring, anti-spam, firewall, backup and recovery, secure remote access and compliance- and policy-based reporting.


Overall The NetVanta 2000 Series provides a complete level of protection with no performance hit at a lower operational cost with the most manageable UTM security solution on the market today. Many other UTM solutions require file caching and rebooting to accommodate updating file signatures and scanning procedures, which slows down the processor and hinders productivity, whereas the NetVanta UTM appliances can scan files of any size without caching, and handle hundreds of thousands of concurrent downloads. It offers superior performance for any size network. In addition, it fully utilizes all the bandwidth provided by modern broadband while still receiving the benefits of complete protection against viruses, spyware, worms, trojans, and content and application related threats, and Guarantees bandwidth prioritization for mission critical applications, while throttling or completely blocking non-productive apps.
