With firewall throughput of up to 60 Gbps and UTM throughput up to 11 Gbps, the Firebox M4600 and M5600 are our fastest Firebox appliances ever. This level of performance, paired with powerful security, flexible high port density, and affordability makes these the ideal solutions for 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. 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.
