WatchGuard Technologies Introduces New Firewalls
Jun 3 15
WatchGuard Technologies announced a new series of powerful, enterprise-strength firewalls engineered specifically to protect small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) everywhere. SMBs are increasingly the focus of cyber attacks that are no less sophisticated than those targeting large enterprises. WatchGuard's new Firebox® M200 and M300 Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFW) and Unified Threat Management (UTM) appliances are up to 218% faster than competitors with all the layers of the company's award-winning defense-in-depth solutions turned on. Plus, the new firewalls are up to 385% faster performing HTTPS inspection, which is increasingly critical given encrypted traffic is expected to make up 75% of the total Internet traffic by 2016. The new Firebox M200 and M300 run WatchGuard's powerful Fireware® operating system and include the latest generation of Freescale multi-core processors, ensuring the appliances have the power to run all of the UTM and NGFW engines in parallel without causing a bottleneck in performance at any price point. Both appliances also offer RapidDeploy support that simplifies deployment for SMBs, which usually have smaller, less technical staff.
