Zyxel 's new ZLD 2.20 firmware version for firewalls in the ZyWall USG range controls the access to social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

According to the announcement, the firmware supports the SSL VPN features of Windows 7, has an improved user interface (demo) and offers enhanced routing. It is also said to offer improved VoIP application handling. The update is available to download free of charge from Zyxel's homepage.
