The Vault is a small form factor PC built for use as a firewall / router. The FW4A is based on a 4 network port design that leverages a low power, but versatile Intel Atom E3845 CPU. This CPU supports AES-NI, Intel’s Hardware Acceleration for Encryption. The Vault uses standard Intel components (including Intel network ports) which results in compatibility with a variety of operating systems, including a number of open source firewall projects. The Vault has no moving parts, which increases it’s durability in less than ideal environments. Its whole aluminum enclosure is a giant heat sink, keeping the CPU cool with fanless design!
