High-performance software and hardware platforms
The F1000 series uses advanced 64-bit multi-core processors and caches.
Carrier-level high availability
Uses H3C proprietary software and hardware platforms that have been proven by Telecom carriers and small- to medium-sized enterprises.
Supports H3C SCF, which can virtualize multiple devices into one device for unified resources management, service backup, and system performance improvement.
Powerful security protection
Attack protection—Detects and prevents various attacks, including Land, Smurf, Fraggle, ping of death, Tear Drop, IP spoofing, IP fragment, ARP spoofing, reverse ARP lookup, invalid TCP flag, large ICMP packet, IP/port scanning, and common DDoS attacks such as SYN flood, UDP flood, DNS flood, and ICMP flood.
SOP N:1 virtualization—Uses the container-based virtualization technology. An F1000 series firewall can be virtualized into multiple logical firewalls, which have the same features as the physical firewall. Each virtual firewall can have its own security policy and can be managed independently.
Security zone—Allows you to configure security zones based on interfaces and VLANs.
Packet filtering—Allows you to apply standard or advanced ACLs between security zones to filter packets based on information contained in the packets, such as UDP and TCP port numbers. You can also configure time ranges during which packet filtering will be performed.
Access control—Supports access control based on users and applications and integrates deep intrusion prevention with access control.
ASPF—Dynamically determines whether to forward or drop a packet by checking its application layer protocol information and state. ASPF supports inspecting FTP, HTTP, SMTP, RTSP, and other TCP/UDP-based application layer protocols.
AAA—Supports authentication based on RADIUS/HWTACACS+, CHAP, and PAP.
Blacklist—Supports static blacklist and dynamic blacklist.
NAT and VRF-aware NAT.
VPN—Supports L2TP, IPsec/IKE, GRE, and SSL VPNs. Allows smart devices to connect to the VPNs.
Routing—Supports static routing, RIP, OSPF, BGP, routing policies, and application- and URL-based policy-based routing.
Security logs—Supports operation logs, zone pair policy matching logs, attack protection logs, DS-LITE logs, and NAT444 logs.
Traffic monitoring, statistics, and management.
Flexible and extensible, integrated and advanced DPI security
Integrated security service processing platform—Highly integrates the basic and advanced security protection measures to a security platform.
Application layer traffic identification and management.
Uses the state machine and traffic exchange inspection technologies to detect traffic of P2P, IM, network game, stock, network video, and network multi-media applications, such as Thunder, Web Thunder, BitTorrent, eMule, eDonkey, WeChat, Weibo, QQ, MSN, and PPLive.
Uses the deep inspection technology to identify P2P traffic precisely and provides multiple policies to control and manage the P2P traffic flexibly.
Highly precise and effective intrusion inspection engine—Uses the H3C-proprietary Full Inspection with Rigorous State Test (FIRST) engine and various intrusion inspection technologies to implement highly precise inspection of intrusions based on application states. The FIRST engine also supports software and hardware concurrent inspections to improve the inspection efficiency.
Realtime virus protection—uses the stream-based antivirus engine to prevent, detect, and remove malicious code from network traffic.
Categorized filtering of massive URLs—uses the local+cloud mode to provide 139 categorized URL libraries and support over 20 million URL filtering rules, provides basic URL filtering blacklist and whitelist and allows you to query the URL category filtering server on line.
Complete and updated security signature database—H3C has a senior signature database team and professional attack protection labs that can provide a precise and up-to-date signature database.
Industry-leading IPv6 features
IPv6 stateful firewall.
IPv6 related attack protection.
IPv6 data forwarding, IPv6 static routing and dynamic routing, and IPv6 multicast.
IPv6 transition technologies, including NAT-PT, IPv6 over IPv4 GRE tunnel, manual tunnel, 6to4 tunnel, automatic IPv4-compatible IPv6 tunnel, ISATAP tunnel, NAT444, and DS-Lite.
IPv6 ACL and RADIUS.
Next-generation multi-service features
Integrated link load balancing feature—Uses link state inspection and link busy detection technologies, and applies to a network egress to balance traffic among links.
Integrated SSL VPN feature—Uses USB-Key, SMS messages, and the enterprise's existing authentication system to authenticate users, providing secure access of mobile users to the enterprise network.
Data leakage prevention (DLP)—Supports email filtering by SMTP mail address, subject, attachment, and content, HTTP URL and content filtering, FTP file filtering, and application layer filtering (including Java/ActiveX blocking and SQL injection attack prevention).
Intrusion prevention system (IPS)—Supports identification and prevention of Web attacks, such as cross-site scripting (XSS) and SQL injection (SQLi).
Anti-virus (AV)—Uses a high-performance virus detection engine and a daily updated virus signature database to prevent attacks from over 5 million viruses.
Unknown threat prevention—Uses the situation awareness platform to fast detect and locate threats. This ensures that the firewall can take global security measures as soon as a single point is under attack.
Intelligent security policy management—Detects duplicate policies, optimizes policy matching rules, detects and proposes security policies dynamically generated in the internal network.
SNMPv3—Compatible with SNMPv1 and SNMPv2.
CLI-based configuration and management.
Web-based management, with simple, user-friendly GUI.
H3C IMC SSM unified management—Collects and analyzes security information, and offers an intuitive view into network and security conditions, saving management efforts and improving management efficiency.
Centralized log management based on advanced data drill-down and analysis technology—Requests and receives information to generate logs, compiles different types of logs (such as syslogs and binary stream logs) in the same format, and compresses and stores large amounts of logs. You can encrypt and export saved logs to external storage devices such as DAS, NAS, and SAN to avoid loss of important security logs.
Abundant reports—Include application-based reports and stream-based analysis reports.
Various exported report formats—Include PDF, HTML, word, and txt.
Report customization through the Web interface—Customizable contents include time range, data source device, generation period, and export format.
