25 August 2016: Binary Testing Laboratories in the UK has put the WatchGuard Firebox T30-W UTM through its paces and concluded that it is, ‘an impressive little UTM appliance that teams up a wealth of security features with excellent performance’. The report adds that, ‘we highly recommend it for SMBs that want the best security at the most affordable prices and enterprises looking for hassle-free deployment to remote and branch offices’.
The Firebox T30-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 found the Firebox T30-W’s ‘integral 11ac wireless AP makes it even more versatile’, adding, ‘even small businesses with limited IT resources will find installation a very simple process’. ‘Its wireless capabilities allow theT30-W to extend its security umbrella over employees and guest users alike and the comprehensive range of free reporting tools adds even more to its value score’.
“We think the Firebox T30-W is fantastic value for money and it’s very satisfying to get third-party validation from Binary Testing’s highly respected labs,” said Jonathan Whitely, Area Sales Director for Northern Europe at WatchGuard Technologies. “We’ve focused on creating an easy to manage product that delivers SMBs with concrete security, while ensuring it remains at an affordable price. Reviews like this show we have succeeded.”
