Up to 8 Gbps firewall throughput, 2.6 Gbps UTM throughput

Because smaller companies are generally less protected and easier to break into, small business has become the new big target for cyber attacks. The Firebox® M270 and M370 firewalls are specifically engineered to defend all types of small businesses against attacks that are no less fierce than those targeting larger organizations. Our unique product architecture enables SMBs to leverage best-in-class security services – from URL filtering and intrusion prevention to application control and data loss prevention – without the cost and complexity of running multiple single-point solutions. The M270 and M370 are part of WatchGuard’s award-winning Firebox security platform. The platform not only provides the most complete suite of unified security controls on the market today, it has consistently been the first to offer solutions for addressing new and evolving network threats including advanced malware and ransomware.

Blazing Fast Performance

Firebox M270 and M370 Unified Threat Management (UTM) solutions are up to 3 times faster than competing products with all security layers turned on, and up to 94 percent faster performing HTTPS inspection, according to the independent test lab Miercom. This ensures you never have to compromise network security for performance.

Quick And Simple Deployment

SMBs usually have smaller, less technical staff, which can make network expansion challenging. RapidDeploy – a powerful, cloud-based deployment and configuration tool – comes standard with WatchGuard Firebox appliances. With it, IT staff can create and store configuration data in the cloud – public or private – and have the appliance directly shipped to its destination. Once the device arrives, it can connect to the cloud for a secure download of its configuration settings, saving your staff travel time and money.

Easy To Manage And Understand

The M270 and M370 are not only easy to initially configure and deploy, they are also designed with an emphasis on centralized management, making ongoing policy and network management simple and straightforward. WatchGuard Dimension, included with purchase, provides a suite of big data visibility and reporting tools that instantly identify and distill key network security threats, issues and trends so you can take immediate preventive or corrective action. Security is complex, running it doesn’t have to be.
