WatchGuard’s New Tabletop UTM Appliances Deliver Speed and Security for Small and Distributed Offices

The Firebox T Series offers the best performance rating in its class and is simple to configure, deploy, and manage

SEATTLE – November 7, 2017WatchGuard® Technologies, a leader in advanced network security solutions, today announced hardware upgrades for the Firebox T Series of unified threat management (UTM) appliances. The throughput improvements and added features in WatchGuard’s new T15, T35 and T55 tabletop appliances allow users at small offices, home offices and distributed enterprises to experience blazing-fast internet speeds, and the most advanced enterprise-grade security protections and controls.

“Hackers no longer discriminate based on location or the size of a business,” said Brendan Patterson, Director of Product Management at WatchGuard Technologies. “Small offices and home offices are just as likely to be targeted as enterprise locations, which is why they need access to the same enterprise-grade protection, including services like APT Blocker and Threat Detection and Response (TDR). As internet speeds continue to increase, we continue to improve the performance of our tabletop Fireboxes to ensure that security doesn’t restrict network performance or interfere with business goals.”

WatchGuard’s tabletop appliances offer leading price-to-performance while running full UTM features, including APT Blocker, TDR, IPS, Anti-Virus, and Application Control. In addition to  offering a broad range of security services to keep smaller sites safe, the Firebox T Series appliances are easy to configure and deploy in small offices, branch offices, and distributed enterprise locations.


  • Significantly Improved Performance: Faster throughput across the board gives the new T Series models the highest-performing security inspection in its class. Administrators can confidently enable protections against a wide variety of advanced malware without slowing network speeds.
  • Integrated 802.11ac Wireless: Wi-Fi-enabled T35 and T55 Series appliances feature integrated 802.11ac wireless adapters, allowing users to inspect and secure wireless traffic using the latest standards
  • Power Over Ethernet: The T35 and T55 include a Power over Ethernet plus port, which eliminates the need to run AC power to peripheral devices like security cameras or wireless access points.


Replacing WatchGuard’s T10, T30 and T50 products, respectively, the T15, T35 and T55 models are available now.
