WatchGuard Firebox M270 hardware firewall 4900 Mbit/s 1U

Product Description

Enterprise-Grade Security for Small to Midsize Businesses
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.

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, ensuring businesses never have to compromise network security for performance.

Stay Ahead of Evolving Threats
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. Our unique product architecture enables small and midsize businesses to leverage best-in-class security services – from URL filtering and intrusion prevention to application control and ransomware prevention, minus the cost and complexity of multiple single-point solutions.

Always Know What’s Happening on Your Network
Interactive, real-time monitoring and reporting through WatchGuard Dimension – included at no additional charge – give an unprecedented view into network security activity so you can take immediate preventive or corrective actions. Over 100 reports and dashboards come standard, including reports for PCI and HIPAA compliance, which means you have one-click access to the data you need to ensure compliance requirements are met.

Quick and Simple Deployment
SMBs usually have smaller, less technical staff, which can make network expansion challenging. With RapidDeploy – a powerful, cloud-based deployment and configuration tool that comes standard with WatchGuard Firebox appliances, all you have to do is power up the appliance at a remote site and connect it to the Internet. The appliance “phones home” and downloads the correct configuration files from the cloud. Just like that.

Easy to Manage
It’s in WatchGuard’s DNA to deliver advanced network security technologies that were previously thought to be too complex for small and midsize organizations. We take these enterprise-grade technologies and make them easy to manage and deploy. The end result? Small to midsize businesses have one solution, delivering enterprise-grade security, that can be managed from a single-pane-of glass centralized console.
