{tab Overview|grey}

HiGuard V is an all-in-one firewall that operates at gigabit speed up to 1.8 Gbps and carries several main categories across your network security deployments: firewall security protection, policy auditing (content filtering, VPN bandwidth, and authentication), and easy management (Co-Defense). The web-based interface provides friendly and consistent user experience, auto firmware update, and multi-languages supported. Configuration files can be imported and exported directly to and from HiGuard V. By simply plugging in a USB modem into HiGuard V, wireless 3G, 4G/LTE are supported to offer secure and uninterrupted WAN connectivity. 

ShareTech HiGuard V offers a comprehensive range of security solutions for SMBs in a more complicated network environment which allows for more potential attacks. Moreover, ShareTech Eye Cloud, a cloud service platform, provides a user friendly interface to support instant equipment maintenance and management. It is an all-inclusive solution to monitor various networking appliances deployed in either external or internal networks. When an anomaly occurs, administrators will be notified of the problem.

HiGuard V Security Solutions

Best-suited Firewall for SOHO/SMB
HiGuard V is an ideal firewall designed especially for SOHO and SMB, a 9-inch desktop fanless design that ensures silent operation in small or quiet office environments. 4 Gigabit ports (fixed 1LAN and 1WAN and 2 custom ports) provide Gigabit Ethernet connectivity for users under 50. It is the most simple and cost-effective network security solution.

Built-in SPI (Stateful Packet Inspection) provides DoS detection and prevention against certain popular flood attacks like SYN, ICMP, and UDP. When the unusually high rates of the new connection are detected, the system will issue an alert notification or block anomalous session. In addition, HiGuard V SPI protects against packet-injection attacks by checking several components of TCP and UDP sessions.

Highest NAT Packet Processing Performance
Internet service providers (ISPs) is offering higher-speed DSL to homes and businesses. In order to satisfy existing customers, HiGuard V provides better support for the explosive growth in data traffic. In addition to Gigabit LAN and WAN ports, hardware-accelerated NAT operates at gigabit speed up to 1.8 Gbps that makes HiGuard V a basic unit with comparable performance and advanced functionality.

IPv4 / v6 Dual Mode
Native dual-stack supported. To cope with IPv4 depletion, ShareTech provides a solution that covers both IPv4 and IPv6 network and can be configured for IPv4 only, IPv6 only, or to support both protocols simultaneously. Furthermore, all ShareTech appliances have been certificated with “IPv6 Ready” logo.

Content Filtering

IT administrators can configure Web filtering profiles that block URLs to inappropriate web pages like violence and pornography and hacking attacks like malware. Moreover, HiGuard V filters out ActiveX objects, Cookies or Java applets that may pose a security threat in certain situations. Both keywords and URLs of specified websites can be added to Blacklist and Whitelist.

Inbound/Outbound Load Balance
HiGuard V supports outbound and inbound load balancing, providing business at least 2 WAN links. Multi-homing load balancing is supported to spread a business's Internet traffic among multiple access links to increase the aggregate throughput and to divert traffic away from non-functional links when they fail. An additional 3G/4G/LTE USB can also be attached to the USB port of the HiGuard V to add a backup wireless connectivity.

HiGuard V combines MPLS, Ethernet ADSL, Wireless 3G, 4G/LTE at a single location. It is ideal for companies with 3 more offices and who have demanding applications. IT Administrators can manage Internet access easily for improved latency and reduced WAN cost spending. Companies can adopt a reliable and private line MPLS to protect important data, while administrators cost-effectively mix and match other network links as backup links. With SD-WAN, geographic boundaries are erased. Network links can be optimized to support applications with specific needs.

QoS offers more agile bandwidth management for industries and organizations. All the servers and users can be configured at their minimum and maximum bandwidth; the remaining bandwidth will be allotted to the other users according to their configuration.

URL Database (One-Year License)
HiGuard V integrates a third party URL database which collects millions of URLs and updates every period of time. All these URLs and their contents were analyzed and classified into categories. IT administrator is able to block any category in the database with ease without entering keywords or the desired URL addresses one by one. Users do not have to fear they might stumble on a malicious URL and get infected with malware.

Application Control (One-Year License)
In order to prevent data leakage and ensure regulatory compliance, the access to applications which unrelated to work should be controlled during working hours. Cooperated with a third-party database, HiGuard X can enforce policies for applications like P2P, VPN and Remote Control, Streaming and VoIP, Network Service, Online Sharing and Storage, Web Service, Social Network, Instant Messaging, System and Update, News and Media, Shopping and Auction, Entertainment and Arts, Sports and Travel, Food and Drink, Finance and Insurance, Gambling and porn, Games, etc. The URL database is updated daily at the time specified.

HiGuard V offers three authentication methods: Active Directive (AD), POP3, and Radius. When a user first opens a web browser and begins to access an internet site, they will be prompted to authenticate before using internet service.

Complete VPN Solutions
Using IPsec, PPTP, L2TP, and SSL VPN connections, HiGuard V provides data confidentiality, data integrity, and data authentication. At the same time, popular protocols such as web, SMTP, and POP3 that contains packets transmitting within tunnels are able to be controlled.

    Supports IPSec, PPTP, L2TP, SSL, and GRE Tunnel

    Supports DES, 3DES, AES, AES128, AES192, and AES256 encryption and SHA-1, SHA256, SHA512, and MD5 authentication algorithms

    SSL VPN mobility client for Android and Apple iOS

    Controls connectivity of remote sites from the central site

Graphic Dashboard (Optional)

The dynamic dashboard in the web user interface (web UI) presents a graphic view of the system status including concurrent connections, application classification, network resource usage, HTTP or HTTPS traffics and intrusion defense to help in tracking and diagnosis. IT administrators are given visibility into the network users, their devices, and their applications.

Diagnostic Tools
HiGuard V
provides diagnostic tools such Ping, Traceroute, DNS Query, Port Scan and so on. They make fault isolation and troubleshooting easy for administrators.

Flexible Policy Control
Flexible web policies allow you to build rules based on users, groups, date, time and much more. Administrators can setup combination to reach different network requirements. Problems can be fixed without temporarily suspending services and operation can be made through GUI to keep your network safe and secure.

User-Friendly Interface
Firmware is upgraded using a web browser. Users can select their preferred language (English, Traditional Chinese, or Simplified Chinese) for the Web UI as well as their time zone. HiGuard X export/import functionality makes it possible to exchange various configuration entities between one ShareTech UTM and another.


Cloud-Based Service System (Eye Cloud)
Eye Cloud is a next-gen cloud service platform providing a user-friendly interface to support instant equipment maintenance and management. It is an all-inclusive solution to monitor various networking appliances deployed in either external or internal networks such as firewalls or switches. When an anomaly occurs, administrators will be notified of the problem.
