WatchGuard Firebox M400 and M500 Firewalls

 

Firebox M400 and M500 firewalls are specifically engineered for mid-sized 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 M400 and M500 have all the power they need to run their security scanning engines in parallel, without causing a bottleneck in performance. This ensures network pros never have to compromise network security for performance.


Real-time Visibility

A suite of big-data style visibility and reporting tools are included at no additional cost. Use the Policy Map dashboard to quickly find active and misconfigured policies and drill down as needed.

Maximum Network Uptime

High availability capabilities – active/active and active/passive – ensure your network is always up and running. Buy two M400s or M500s for a high availability pair and receive 50% off the cost of the second device.

Outstanding Performance

Up to 8 Gbps firewall throughput and 1.7 Gbps UTM throughput. Turn on optional security services and still see up to 1.7 Gbps throughput.
