Unified Security Defeats Complexity
The WatchGuard Unified Security Platform™ is a true force multiplier for IT teams. It makes operational ease possible by integrating the WatchGuard Firebox with WatchGuard’s authentication, endpoint security, and Wi-Fi solutions to enable comprehensive, multi-layered security. Unifying security into a single platform unlocks efficiencies simply not possible with siloed systems, allowing for automation of frequent manual tasks that take up time.
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.
Power over Ethernet Support
Firebox M590 and M690 can be equipped with a 4 port multispeed POE+ module that eliminates the need to have separate power running to peripheral devices. POE+ ports simplify the process of powering other devices, like security cameras or WatchGuard’s USP Wi-Fi Access Points.
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.
High availability ensures maximum uptime. Buy two M590 or M690 for an active/passive high availability pair and receive 50% off the cost of the second device.
Outstanding performance with up to 29.7 Gbps firewall throughput and 4.6 Gbps throughput with full Total Security Services running.
Take advantage of innovative features like simplified VPN creation in WatchGuard Cloud to make fast work of extending your network.
Optional 8 x 1 Gb copper, 4 x 1 Gb copper, 4 x 1 SFP, 2 x 1 SFP+, or 4 port multispeed POE+ ports
