03/07/2012- Thecus is constantly working on new ways to make a NAS a more secure appliance. Previously more focused on hardware innovations, the young Taiwanese company is now making its way into software development.
Access Guard™: Repel Unwelcome Guests
When your NAS is available on the Internet, it can be the target of a very high amount of attacks. Getting a firewall is a good option but can be expensive and hard to maintain. With Access Guard, you just decide which device can or cannot access you NAS by filtering its IP and/or MAC address, adding an extra layer of security.
Access Guard even proves itself useful on local networks and more secure compared to the internet: protecting a teacher's account on a school intranet, keeping confidential HR files, guarding critical blueprints and assuring private data safety… Examples are endless!
Ideal complement of the McAfee antivirus module, Access Guard is enhancing the overall security of your NAS even more. And like every other Thecus modules, it's completely free!
