Named the #1 contender in the Security Hardware category, the Firebox M370 Unified Threat Management (UTM) appliance is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to defending small to midsize businesses from the same malicious attacks seen targeting larger organizations. The Firebox M370 is specifically engineered to enable best-in-class network security services without compromising performance. Powered by the latest generation of Freescale multi-core processors, it can run all its security scanning engines in parallel without causing performance bottlenecks. According to the independent test lab Miercom, WatchGuard Firebox M370 is up to three times faster than competing products with all security layers turned on, and up to 94 percent faster when performing HTTPS inspection.
