WatchGuard Delivers High-Speed, Modular UTM Appliance

Press Release (ePRNews.com) - PRETORIA, South Africa - Feb 25, 2016 - WatchGuard® Technologies (http://www.watchguard.com/), a leader in multi-function integrated security appliances, today announced the release of the company’s highest performing Firebox® M4600 and M5600 Unified Threat Management (UTM) appliances. In addition to top performance, WatchGuard’s M4600/M5600 firewalls offer flexible port modularity, and redundant power supplies, making them a perfect fit for organizations with larger and often dispersed environments that require fast speed and flexibility, such as distributed enterprises.

Top performance paired with speed, flexibility, and affordability makes these appliances ideal for taking the lead in distributed, hub-and-spoke type deployment scenarios. Typically deployed at the corporate headquarters, these appliances serve as the “hub” appliance, responsible for managing and securing all communications between the head office and all remote employee and small business sites.

“Organizations need high performance UTM security solutions with fast speeds to quickly scale and operate seamlessly across their network,” said Brendan Patterson, director of Product Management at WatchGuard. “They shouldn’t have to sacrifice performance for security – anywhere in their network. Our Fireboxes consolidate critical network and security functions into a single, centrally managed UTM platform that is easy to set up, deploy and manage.”

The Firebox M4600/M5600 appliances provide greater port density options that enable IT professionals to add additional network modules with more fiber or copper ports. Each appliance has two available slots for expansion modules, and options for 4x10Gb fiber, 8x1Gb copper, or 8x1Gb fiber. Network modularity empowers IT pros to customize the port configuration to meet their needs, while ensuring the flexibility to adapt the firewall as their network evolves.

Standard with all WatchGuard appliances is access to Dimension (http://www.rdgroup.co.za/19-products/watchguard/178-watch…), the company’s award-winning, actionable threat intelligence platform. Dimension aggregates data from all WatchGuard appliances across a customer’s network and translates that data into visually rich and actionable information. With Dimension, customers can easily see not only what is going on in their network but proactively take steps, faster than ever before, to update their security policy immediately, right from the reporting dashboards, to stop malicious sites, applications and users.
