WatchGuard Firebox M5600


Typically deployed at the corporate headquarters, these appliances serve as the “hub” –responsible for managing and securing all communications between the head office and all remote employee and small business sites. WatchGuard Dimension, which is included at no additional cost, provides a suite of big data visibility and reporting tools that instantly identify and distill key network security threats, issues and trends, accelerating the ability to set meaningful security policies across the entire network.

WatchGuard’s award-winning network security platform not only provides the most complete suite of unified security controls on the market today, but we have consistently been the first to offer solutions for addressing new and evolving network threats including ransomware and advanced malware.
