The Firebox M440 continues to rack up the accolades! Most recently, SC Magazine published the results of its Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) and Unified Threat Management (UTM) product group test. M440 not only received a 5-star rating, but also their coveted “recommended” stamp of approval. Moreover, it was called the “pick of the litter” of the group that included Check Point Software, Cyberoam, Dell SonicWALL, LogRhythm, McAfee, NetIQ, SolarWinds, and more.
The Firebox M440 delivers the same strong security, high performance and flexible management tools that distinguish WatchGuard’s other UTM and Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) solutions, but this model also delivers robust port density with 25 1 Gb Ethernet ports and two 10 Gb SFP+ (fiber) ports. This removes the need for complex configurations such as VLANs and instantly simplifying the critical process of applying traffic-appropriate policies across multiple network segments.
The lab shelled out praise left and right – noting the M440’s simple set-up and great documentation, a well-designed user interface, and calling WatchGuard Dimension™ an “outstanding feature” for visibility into the network. The review also said it was easy to use, expandable and offers very good value for the price.
SC Magazine stated the Firebox M440 is “a true enterprise-grade UTM device with massive throughput and some of the best all-in-one capability in its class.”
The M440 was also awarded a 5-star review and named Editor’s Choice by IT Pro, calling it “a powerful beast” with a superb range of security features. In addition, it won Security Product of the Year by Network Computing Magazine. To see a full list of WatchGuard awards, click here.
