WatchGuard Reputation Enabled Defense 1-yr for M470
FROM £1,016.69 Excl VAT £847.24SKU: WGM47141
Firebox M470 firewalls are specifically engineered for midsize and distributed enterprises that are struggling to effectively and affordably secure networks in the face of explosive growth in bandwidth rates, encrypted traffic, video use, and connection speeds.
With an operating system built on the latest generation of processors from Intel, the M470 has all the power they need to run their security scanning engines in parallel, without causing a bottleneck in performance – while still leaving “head room” to add future engines as security trends evolve.
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.
