Top of the Line Performance & Security
With firewall throughput of up to 60 Gbps and UTM throughput up to 11 Gbps, the Firebox M4600 and M5600 are our fastest Firebox appliances ever. This level of performance, paired with powerful security, flexible high-port density, redundant power supplies, and affordability makes these the ideal solutions for distributed, hub-and-spoke type deployment scenarios.
Typically deployed at the corporate headquarters, these appliances serve as the “hub” appliance, responsible for managing and securing all communications between the head office and all remote employee and small business sites. WatchGuard Dimension, which is included at no additional cost, provides a suite of big data visibility and reporting tools that instantly identify and distill key network security threats, issues and trends, accelerating the ability to set meaningful security policies across the entire network.
What’s more, the Firebox M4600 and M5600 allow businesses to add the network interface modules that best suit their environment.
Every network needs a full arsenal of scanning engines to protect against spyware, viruses, malicious apps, data leakage, botnets and more. WatchGuard’s award-winning network security platform not only provides the most complete suite of unified security controls on the market today, but we have consistently been the first to offer solutions for addressing new and evolving network threats including ransomware and advanced malware.
Future-Proof Your Network
When IT pros have greater port density options, they can customize their port configuration to meet current needs, while ensuring the flexibility to adapt as the network evolves. Module options for the M4600 and M5600 include 4 x 10Gb fiber, 8 x 1Gb fiber, 8 x 1Gb copper, 2 x 40Gb fiber, 1 x 40Gb copper – and any combination of these can be deployed in the M4600 and M5600 two empty bays. Just Imagine, no more costly rip-and-replace scenarios.
