Secure Wi-Fi for Small Business

As the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) trend accelerates, blanketing the facilities with Wi-Fi has become a vital step when setting up any office. Yet small firms, shops, and cafés need a solution that addresses their specific requirements – easy enough to manage without specialized IT staff, and secure enough to protect sensitive business data.

New possibility for modern-day small business

Simple, automatic setup

The old, complex way of configuring Wi-Fi controllers and APs can be overkill in many environments. Leveraging the latest mesh Wi-Fi technology, you can now create a network that self-configures, self-manages, and self-optimizes, automatically giving you the best route to the Internet.

  • Flexible deployment options : Cut the clutter and expensive cabling costs by having the Wi-Fi points connect wirelessly with each other, or use Ethernet connection wherever cabling is in place to ensure the highest throughput. Daisy chain support helps you extend coverage effectively across floors.
  • A smartphone to get the network up and running : Setting up an Internet connection on the primary RT2600ac and adding additional MR2200ac can be easily done with a mobile app.1 Future management and monitoring, too.
  • Scale as your business grows : When the company expands its workspace, simply add more MR2200ac and see they apply the network configuration to themselves. Up to 7 nodes per network is recommended. 2

The next level of Wi-Fi experience

Say goodbye to dropped signals, spotty connections, and fragmented networks created by multiple routers and access points. Let uninterrupted Internet access bring you happier customers and employees.

Seamless

Stay connected to one network as you move around the office: at your desk, in a meeting room, or at lunch. No more manually connecting to different SSIDs. Comprehensive support for 802.11k/v/r standards further ensures a smooth roaming experience.3

Fast

The system supports 802.11ac Wave 2 (with MU-MIMO and beamforming) to serve an ever-increasing number of devices with high speeds. Data transmission between Wi-Fi points is backed by the tri-band design of MR2200ac to deliver maximum performance.

Always-on

To minimize the risk of ISP outages, Smart WAN allows you to failover or load-balance between two Internet connections (such as cable or 3G/4G dongles4). For businesses that utilize third-party VPN services, add a VPN connection to the network and easily route any specific devices through it.

Higher customer satisfaction & safer networks

Great in-store Wi-Fi is an effective way to keep customers coming back. Set up separate networks for employees and guests – it not only secures access to internal servers and point-of-sale systems but also lets you market to your customers better.

  • Staff network : Among the first Wi-Fi routers to support the state-of-the-art WPA3, Synology RT2600ac and MR2200ac offer better defenses against attacks.5 Companies that require Wi-Fi authentication via employees' own credentials can install a RADIUS server for free.
  • Guest network : Use a Wi-Fi marketing splash page to promote your brand. Remember to keep them safe: support for Wi-Fi Enhanced Open (OWE) automatically encrypts communications in an “open” network to prevent eavesdropping and future disputes.

Business-grade security at no additional cost

Synology comes with a full-featured security system for network-wide traffic monitoring and threat response, helping even smaller companies defend themselves against malicious attacks and data breaches (tax records, payroll, customer data, etc.).

  • Threat Prevention

    With intrusion prevention technology, RT2600ac is capable of scanning the network traffic for malicious packets and automatically dropping them once identified, while Synology's optimization allows it to deliver stellar throughput.6 This is backed by several threat intelligence databases that block access to dangerous domains and IPs.

  • Web filtering

    To enforce company-wide Internet usage policy, access to social media, gaming, or adult websites can be blocked and logged using customized profiles. Retail stores can also limit staff access to white-listed domains, such as the corporate website and email.

  • Bandwidth control & visibility

    Use device- and application-based control to prioritize business-critical apps like VoIP and throttle non-productive ones. Traffic monitoring and reporting features then help you analyze network usage and identify rogue devices – even remotely with a mobile app.

VPN for remote offices & employees

Whether it's employees on the road or working from home, or external freelancers doing auditing or design projects, Synology VPN Plus provides the increasingly mobile workforce with secure remote access to internal systems. Branch offices of a larger corporation can also connect their networks with the headquarters' via site-to-site IPsec VPN, making resource sharing across different locations a breeze.7

Check the tech specs of RT2600ac and MR2200ac to plan an ideal Wi-Fi network, or contact us to know more.

  1. Currently, RT2600ac can serve as the primary Wi-Fi point, while MR2200ac can be the primary Wi-Fi point or extend the signal of another RT2600ac/MR2200ac.
  2. Based on real-world test results. The coverage may vary depending on the number and placement of units.
  3. Also depends on client support of the roaming standards.
  4. Check the compatibility list for supported models.
  5. Client support for WPA3 is required for compatibility.
  6. External storage is required.
  7. Access by one concurrent user account to SSL VPN and WebVPN is free. For site-to-site VPN, a one-month free trial is available. To add more user accounts or unlock the site-to-site VPN feature, please refer to Client VPN Access License and Site-to-Site VPN License.
