Intelligent EDGE Firewall.
The firewall module is the optimal solution for the integration in HP ProCurve network environments. For example, it can operate as a transparent firewall and highly redundant firewall to protect branch networks, intranets and multiple VLANs.

The .vtFW-XL1 can be expanded into a high-quality redundant firewall solution with further models without any effort. No matter if in the same or other switch chassis.

You can use the firewall module in any empty slot of the HP ProCurve 5300xl switch series, even with multiple firewall modules in a single switch. The modules are sharing the powerful switch backplane, and you can extend the solution with additional Gigabit Ethernet, fiber, or even access and radio modules into complete network solution in a switch.


The .vtFW-XL1 is a 3rd party product that is fully integrated into the HP ProCurve management environment.
