USG6305/USG6310S/USG6320 Next-Generation Firewalls — Best-in-Class Access Security for Small Businesses

USG6305/USG6310S/USG6320 Next-Generation Firewalls

Product characteristics

Huawei USG6305/USG6310S/USG6320 next-generation firewalls are desktop-mounted security gateways designed for small businesses, branch offices, and chain stores. The firewalls integrate multiple security capabilities, such as intrusion prevention and antivirus, and support multiple routing protocols for both IPv4 and IPv6. They provide wired and wireless access and are best suited for networks with up to 100 users. The firewalls in this series are small, light, and cost-effective, reduce management costs, and ensure secure and efficient access for users.

Comprehensive protection

  • Multiple security functions, including firewall, VPN, intrusion prevention, and online behavior management, for complete versatility
  • Refined bandwidth management based on application and website category to prioritize bandwidth for mission-critical services
  • Access to a URL category database of over 120 million URLs, used to prevent access to malicious and illegitimate websites and allow/block access to whitelisted/blacklisted websites

Simple management

  • Zero-configuration deployment using USB disks to improve deployment efficiency
  • Web-based configuration and centralized management through the eSight network management system

Flexible bandwidth management

  • Differentiated user bandwidth and quota management for fair and prioritized bandwidth usage
  • Application-based bandwidth management to prioritize bandwidth for mission-critical applications
  • Modification of URL category priority

Targeted marketing

  • Push of ads and questionnaires for marketing
  • Customization of the authentication portal page to provide marketing information or apps that are specific to local business offices

Networking and applications

Comprehensive and integrated protection for small businesses

  • NGFWs are deployed on egresses to provide GE and Wi-Fi interfaces in the downlink, GE interfaces in the uplink, and 3G/4G LTE backup uplinks. 4G LTE backup VPN tunnels or two LTE uplinks can be created for redundancy.
  • NGFWs can be deployed with the Agile Controller to form a branch access security solution that provides unified authentication of wired and wireless users and portal customization. Centralized service management eases the difficulty of managing branch offices while still allowing for platform customization for branches to perform targeted marketing.
  • Refined bandwidth management based on application and website category can prioritize bandwidth for mission-critical services.

Software Features

Function Description
Integrated Protection Integrates firewall, VPN, intrusion prevention, antivirus, data leak prevention, bandwidth management, and URL filtering functions, and provides a global configuration view and integrated policy management
Application Identification and Control Identifies common applications, supports application-specific access control, and combines application identification with intrusion prevention, antivirus, and data filtering to improve detection performance and accuracy
Intrusion Prevention and Web Protection Obtains the latest threat information in a timely manner for accurate detection and prevention of vulnerability exploits and web attacks, such as cross-site scripting and SQL injection attacks
Data Leak Prevention Inspects files to identify the file type, such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and PDF, based on file contents, and filters sensitive content
Bandwidth Management Manages per-user and per-IP bandwidth in addition to identifying service applications to prioritize mission-critical services and users through methods such as peak bandwidth and committed bandwidth, policy-based routing (PBR), and application forwarding priority adjustment
URL Filtering Can access a URL category database of over 120 million URLs to manage access by URL category, such as blocking malicious URLs and accelerating access to specified categories
Behavior and Content Audit Audits and traces the sources of URL access based on the user IP address and requested content
Intelligent Uplink Selection Supports service-specific PBR and intelligent uplink selection based on multiple load balancing algorithms (for example, based on bandwidth ratio and link health status) in multi-homing scenarios
VPN Encryption Supports multiple highly reliable VPN features, such as IPsec VPN, SSL VPN, L2TP VPN, and GRE
Supports IPsec intelligent link selection and dynamic IPsec tunnel switchover to improve link availability
SSL Encrypted Traffic Detection Serves as a proxy to detect and defend against threats in SSL-encrypted traffic using application-layer protection methods such as intrusion prevention, antivirus, data filtering, and URL filtering
User Authentication Supports multiple user authentication methods, including local, RADIUS, HWTACACS, SecurID, AD, CA, LDAP, and Endpoint Security
Security Virtualization Allows users to create and manage virtual security services, including firewall, intrusion prevention, and antivirus services, on the same physical device
Policy Management Provides predefined common-scenario defense templates to facilitate security policy deployment
Automatically evaluates risks in security policies and provides tuning suggestions
Detects redundant and conflicting policies to remove unnecessary and incorrect policies
Provides the firewall policy management solution in partnership with FireMon to reduce O&M costs and potential faults*
Diversified Reports Provides visualized and multi-dimensional reports by user, application, content, time, traffic, threat, and URL1
Generates network security analysis reports on the Huawei security center platform to evaluate the current network security status and provide optimization suggestions*
Routing Supports IPv4 static routes, policy-based routing, routing policies, multicast, RIP, OSPF, BGP, and IS-IS
Supports IPv6 static routes, policy-based routing, routing policies, RIPng, OSPFv3, BGP4+, and IPv6 IS-IS
Working Mode Transparent, routing, and hybrid working modes
Device Management Capability Built-in Web UI: Provides abundant device management and maintenance functions, including log report, configuration, and troubleshooting
eSight network management: Manages the performance, alarms, resources, configurations, and topology of the entire network
Agile Controller: implements application- and user-specific security policy control in the Huawei SDN Agile Network Solution*
LogCenter security event management system: Provides functions such as security posture awareness, report management, log audit, and centralized alarm management
API: Supports both NETCONF* and RESTCONF northbound APIs to enable users to centrally configure and maintain firewalls via an upper-level controller to simply the O&M
Agile Cloud Management Platform*: The Huawei Agile Cloud Network Solution consists of a cloud management platform and a series of cloud-based network devices. Customers can purchase the cloud management license for firewall management and maintenance services instead of buying network management software and hiring network administrators. For firewall functions supported in cloud network management mode, see HUAWEI USG6300 Series Cloud Management Firewall Data Sheet

1: The USG6305 and USG6310S series support log storage in SD cards. If no SD card is inserted, you can view and export system and service logs. By inserting an SD card, you can also view, export, customize, and subscribe to reports. The USG6320 supports the query and export of system and service logs but does not support report query, export, customization, or subscription

Functions marked with * are supported only in USG V500R001 and later versions
