Product Info

Netgear Router Has VPN Tunnels for Secure Remote Access


Discover The Easiest Way To Protect Your Business

By using a VPN for remote connections, small businesses build in a layer of security they otherwise may not have.

The VPN for remote business networking keeps sensitive information private. It’s an added safety measure if you already work on a secure network, but it’s critical to use VPNs over open public Wi-Fi connections such as coffee shops, hotels and airports.

But today’s VPN solutions can be lengthy and tedious to configure, making it hard to implement in small businesses that do not have any IT expertise.

NETGEAR Business has leveraged Insight Management’s intuitive and simplicity solution to implement the easiest VPN set up and configuration of the market in the "Insight Instant VPN Router" (BR500).

Access And Protect Your Data From Anywhere

Remote VPN is for individuals that need to securely login to their small business network, remotely and access the network resources.* Site-2-Site VPN is for businesses with multiple offices that need to connect virtually to support data and resource access for their employees in different locations.

With the BR500 subscription*, you get both: remote VPN and Site-2-Site. Simply choose 1 of the 3 annual plans. (Limited to 10 remote VPN users per BR500).
*BR500 Routers come with 1 FREE remote VPN access. Contact your Memory Express Salesperson for current Plan offerings and prices.



One-step Instant VPN - Remote or Site-to-Site

With the Insight Instant VPN Router and NETGEAR Insight app or Cloud Portal, any business, big or small, tech savvy or not, can create a secure VPN in an instant. With the Instant VPN option in Insight, business employees can set up a VPN in one simple step either from their home to the office or from a business site to another.

Their data and their business is protected in an instant. It also allows them to rapidly access any file or device located in the office as if they were there, making collaboration easier and preventing data duplication on all sites.

Full Business Protection with Integrated Firewall


The Insight Instant VPN Router also adds a layer of protection with a firewall. The firewall prevents any unauthorized access to the network and will monitor the communications between the business network and the outside world according to internal rules. It will also warn of any malicious connection attempt. The Firewall rules can easily be set up in the Insight app or Cloud Portal to get you started instantly.

Remote Monitoring and Management with NETGEAR Insight

The NETGEAR Insight™ solution allows to instantly discover, configure, and continuously monitor and manage your network of select NETGEAR Wi-Fi access points, switches and storage devices, from anywhere. Insight offers plug-and-play set up and management of small business networks from an easy-to-use mobile app or Cloud Portal. Its scope has now expanded to the VPN Router to make the NETGEAR Insight ecosystem the most comprehensive cloud management solution in the market.
