WatchGuard Firebox M400 and M500 firewalls are designed for mid-sized and distributed enterprises. A cost effective solution, essential for companies facing demands to effectively secure networks when confronted with massive growth in bandwidth rates, encrypted traffic, video use and connection speeds.
With operating systems built on the latest generation of processors from Intel, the M400 and M500 are powerful enough to run their security scanning engines simultaneously, without causing a bottleneck in performance. This ensures network pros never have to compromise network security for performance.
Best-in-class security services boost protection in critical attack areas, including gateway AV, URL and web content filtering, intrusion prevention, app control and spam blocking.
A suite of big-data style visibility and reporting tools are included at no additional cost. Use the Policy Map dashboard to quickly access active and misconfigured policies and drill down as needed.
