WatchGuard Firebox X Edge

Firebox® X5

This easy-to-deploy, model-upgradeable, VPN endpoint and firewall security appliance was especially designed for telecommuters with limited networking experience, and offers best-in-class performance with work/home network separation. Firebox® X5 is the all-in-one firewall/VPN appliance that will handle all of your telecommuters' security needs—now and in the future. Small- to mid-sized businesses already protecting their central office networks with Firebox X, can now extend that commercial-grade security to their remote and telecommuting employees with Firebox X5.
