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 firewalls are engineered and designed specifically to defend all types of small businesses against attacks that are no less fierce than those targeting larger organisations.

Firebox M270 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.

Summary

WatchGuard RED uses a cloud-based WatchGuard reputation server that assigns a reputation score between 1 and 100 to every URL. When a user goes to a website, RED sends the requested web address (or URL) to the WatchGuard reputation server. The WatchGuard server responds with a reputation score for that URL. Based on the reputation score and locally configured thresholds, RED determines whether the Firebox should drop the traffic, allow the traffic and scan it locally with Gateway AntiVirus, or allow the traffic without a local Gateway AntiVirus scan. This increases performance, because Gateway AntiVirus does not need to scan URLs with a known good or bad reputation.
RED is supported in HTTP client proxy actions only. It is not supported in HTTP server proxy actions.
