Enterprise-Grade Security for Small to Midsize Businesses
Because smaller companies are generally less protected and easier to break into, small business has become the new big target for cyberattacks. The Firebox M290 and M390 firewalls are specifically engineered to defend all types of small businesses against attacks that are no less fierce than those targeting larger organizations.

Stay Ahead of Evolving Threats
The M290 and M390 are part of WatchGuard’s award-winning Firebox security platform. The platform not only provides the most complete suite of unified security controls on the market today, it has consistently been the first to offer solutions for addressing new and evolving network threats including advanced malware and ransomware. Our unique product architecture enables small and midsize businesses to leverage best-in-class security services – from URL filtering and intrusion prevention to application control and ransomware prevention, minus the cost and complexity of multiple single-point solutions.
Unified Security Defeats Complexity
Cross-platform integration is essential to deploying a Unified Security Platform™. Direct Firebox and AuthPoint integration enables multi-factor authentication through the Firebox itself, eliminating the need for a separate RADIUS server and ensuring VPN access is securely extended to your users.
A Cloud’s-Eye View of Your Entire Network
WatchGuard Cloud provides full visibility into your network so that you can make timely, informed, and effective decisions about your network security anywhere, anytime. The platform displays 100+ dashboards and reports that allow you to quickly see high-level trends and anomalies, then drill down into detailed information on each.
Expansion Modules For Greater Port Density
The Firebox M Series provides empty bays that can be used to add network modules to define a configuration that meet the needs of almost any network configuration. Each appliance has an open module bay for expansion modules, with options for 8 x 1 Gb copper, 4 x 1 Gb copper, 4 x 1 SFP, 2 x 1 SFP+, or 4 port multispeed ports. Network modularity empowers IT pros to customize the port configuration to meet their needs, while ensuring the flexibility to adapt the firewall as their network evolves.
Quick and Simple Deployment
SMBs usually have smaller, less technical staff, which can make network expansion challenging. With RapidDeploy – a powerful, Cloud-based deployment and configuration tool that comes standard with WatchGuard Firebox appliances – all you have to do is power up the appliance at a remote site and connect it to the Internet. The appliance “phones home” and downloads the correct configuration files from the Cloud. Just like that.
Easy to Manage
It’s in WatchGuard’s DNA to deliver advanced network security technologies that were previously thought to be too complex for small and midsize organizations. We take these enterprise-grade technologies and make them easy to manage and deploy. The end result? Small to midsize businesses have one solution, delivering enterprise-grade security, that can be managed from a single-pane-of glass centralized console.
Latest generation multi-core processors provide the power to run all security scanning engines in parallel without causing performance bottlenecks.
8 Gigabit Ethernet ports support high-speed LAN backbone infrastructures & gigabit WAN connections.
