DrayTek Vigor 2960 SSL VPN Router 

The DrayTek 2960 is a little brother to the 3900. It has the same interface and the same code behind it, but is keyed down for a smaller site. The arrangement of interfaces reflects this, as there are 4 ethernet LAN ports and 2 ethernet WAN ports, with two USB ports for 4G WAN if required. The 2960 makes for a great office router for connecting to HQ or to the datacentre, or a great router for your redundant/backup datacentre, as it integrates with all of the 3900 VLAN/VPN systems, where the 2862 and 2926 series are not of the same family, and so there can be issues when VPNing from one VLAN to another etc.

The web security features are also extremely well featured and thought out, and the firewall is very, very adaptable if you plan your setup well. 

The remote access is as what we have come to expect from DrayTek, well thought out and fantastic value for money. The VPN support includes MoTP and two factor authentication as well as being compatible with Windows authentication via RADIUS. The SSL VPN support is also very useful for many situations if you do need good old-fashioned network access from home.
