Get Industry-leading Performance with the Firebox T70

Many organizations today are dependent on fast, reliable and secure Internet connectivity, but are struggling to find network security solutions that can keep up with their ever growing needs. While many rack-mount solutions can keep up with today’s fastest fiber-to-the-premises speeds, there are not currently any tabletop security appliances available that have this capability, especially when running with additional security services enabled. This makes it difficult for SMBs and distributed enterprises to harness these powerful Internet speeds with the complete UTM protection they require.


That was before the WatchGuard Firebox T70.


The WatchGuard Firebox T70 will make network slowdown concerns a thing of the past, with blazing-fast performance capable of delivering full UTM protection at over 1 gigabit per second. With the release of the WatchGuard Firebox T70 tabletop network security appliance, customers can now enjoy the fast throughput that they want, with the industry-leading security that they need. The WatchGuard T70 is also one of the only tabletop appliances available today that provides users two Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) ports enabling power to peripheral devices, such as wireless access points and security cameras.

SD-WAN with Simple Deployment

Get all the benefits of SD-WAN with dynamic path selection features and strong security combined – no need for a specialized appliance. Moreover, deployment is easy 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 settings from the cloud. It’s that easy.

Power for Peripheral Devices

T70 also includes two Power over Ethernet (PoE) ports to power peripheral devices such as wireless access points and security cameras, allowing administrators to extend the reach of their networks without having to run costly AC power to remote devices. PoE ports aren’t often found on tabletop appliances, making this a unique appliance for SMBs and distributed enterprise organizations.

Quick Facts

Fiber Broadband speeds, like Google Fiber in the US, are continuing to grow and require security solutions that can support up to 1 Gbps.

WatchGuard Firebox T70 is the ONLY tabletop appliance capable of providing full UTM protection at over 1 Gbps.

Miercom reports that the Firebox T70 provides the best performance even with HTTPS traffic.

The Firebox T70 is one of the only tabletop appliances available that provides users with two PoE ports.

“The T70 provides the highest levels of performance and capability I’ve seen in such a small unit. This now enables me to deploy the same enterprise-grade security services even for our smaller, more financially constrained offices that I take for granted at our larger sites.”
