T-50 delivers enterprise-class security to SMBs and remote offices at a sensible price says featured report

Binary Testing laboratories in the UK has put the WatchGuard Firebox T50-W UTM through its paces and concluded that it is, ‘a perfect choice for SMBs, delivering a remarkable range of tough security measures at a very modest price’. The report adds that, ‘deployment is nicely streamlined, plenty of good reporting tools are provided as standard and it even includes fast 11ac wireless services’.

This is the latest in a number of glowing reviews and awards for WatchGuard’s Firebox T50 range. The Firebox T50-W is designed as a stand-alone solution or as a distributed device, managed centrally from corporate headquarters. WatchGuard's RapidDeploy™ technology enables administrators to quickly set up the device at remote locations so businesses can protect everywhere they connect. T Series appliances support up to 1.2 Gbps firewall throughput and come in wired and wireless versions. WatchGuard Dimension™, which provides real-time visibility into network activity and security events, is included at no additional cost.

Binary Testing has extensive experience of evaluating UTM appliances from multiple vendors and has ‘consistently found WatchGuard’s products to be amongst the easiest to deploy and manage’. It found the Firebox T50-W was no exception and the new features and wizards in the latest Fireware OS simplify this process even further. The T50-W packs in a remarkable range of security features including sophisticated wireless network provisioning and offers everything an SMB could want in a security appliance and all at a very affordable price.
