Synology SSL VPN
Secure and fast, Synology’s SSL VPN solution requires minimal setup on Windows, Ubuntu, and iOS, making rapid deployment as easy as logging into a web portal.
Clientless WebVPN for centralized access to company intranets and web backends. Easily login from anywhere with only a browser for a secured connection.
Additionally supports SSTP, OpenVPN, L2TP/IPSec, and PPTP VPN server options to satisfy your specific network requirements.
Powerful connectivity management
SRM delivers easy-to-use connectivity management tools to ensure your network always runs smoothly.
SRM’s Smart WAN capability on the RT2600ac supports 2Gbps Dual WAN combined bandwidth when multiple connections are established1. If one of the connections goes offline due to ISP or cable problems, traffic can failover to the other interface. Load balancing can be used in addition to failover, spreading traffic across both interfaces. Policy route allows traffic routing based on destination or source address.
Not sure which devices should connect to the 2.4 GHz and 5GHz bands? With Synology’s Smart Connect, devices are connected to the most appropriate band automatically, letting users experience simplified management without worry about range or speed issues.
Content filtering & monitoring
Application Layer QoS and Traffic Report
Application Layer or Layer 7, Quality of Service control shows the bandwidth consumed by individual applications and devices. Restrict the amount of bandwidth for specific applications, without affecting the rest, and generate traffic usage reports sorted by application and device.
Intelligent Web Filtering and Parental controls
Instead of traditional URL-based web filtering, SRM does so during DNS lookup. Easily block out thousands of sites with built-in Google SafeSearch integration and a constantly updated database of customizable website categories.
In addition to standard security tools like denial-of-service protection and firewall management, SRM delivers innovative tools and features to help protect your network from outside attacks.
Intrusion Detection System analyzes network traffic and logs all intrusion attempts, allowing for fine-tuning of your firewall rules with minimal performance impact. Intrusion Prevention System additionally blocks suspicious traffic based on customizable rules.
Security Advisor & QualysGuard
Monitor and check settings and system files for security issues and automatically apply recommended fixes. Synology utilizes the industry leading Qualysguard platform to detect and enhance security across all Synology operating systems. Learn more
New vulnerabilities and exploits are discovered in the wild every day. Synology is committed to providing fast updates to keep device security up to date for maximum protection. SRM can automatically perform upgrades on a schedule for maximum convenience.
Manage, sync, back up, and more
With an external storage device or SD card, RT2600ac can become a private cloud server with Synology’s Cloud Station Suite2, allowing easy access to files, photos, and even backups for multiple devices. Mac users also enjoy Time Machine compatibility. Connect devices with USB 3.0 to take advantage of RT2600ac’s powerful connectivity3. Learn more
