Where other enterprise-grade Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) access points (APs) focus only on serving up Wi-Fi to users, the new AP325 does this without breaking a sweat and also blocks hackers from stealing passwords, credit cards, and other data with man-in-the-middle (MitM) attacks. Wi-Fi served by WatchGuard’s AP325 is protected by patented Wireless Intrusion Prevention System (WIPS) techniques covering both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz.

Designed for-density environments and equipped with 2×2 802.11ac Wave 2 MU-MIMO, the AP325 can stream data to multiple devices simultaneously utilizing the network more effectively.
“The new AP325 is a very cost-effective Wave 2 AP that fits my network’s needs for fast and secure Wi-Fi access perfectly. I’ve found the AP325 to be rock-solid in wireless connectivity, and the easy Cloud-based management enabled me to add WIPS security protection without a hassle,” said Bob Sampson, head of IT, Wrest Park Ltd.
This new AP can be managed with either a Firebox, via the Gateway Wireless Controller for a lightweight feature set, or with WatchGuard’s Wi-Fi Cloud. With the Wi-Fi Cloud, you get strong set-up, management and reporting features including:
- WIPS security with advanced patented Marker Packet™ technology
- Powerful location-based analytics
- Guest engagement and captive portal tools
- Ability to scale from 1 to unlimited access points with no controller infrastructure
The AP325 is a perfect balance between performance, security, and cost making it a great AP for schools, small and midsize businesses, distributed office spaces, retail, restaurants, and healthcare offices. When selecting an AP for your business, remember to research, or ask, about those three critical factors that make Wi-Fi work well in today’s modern mobile world: performance, security, and cost. In today’s increasingly connected-world, no one should have to compromise. Wi-Fi needs to work seamlessly without over-stressing your budget and it needs to keep your business safe from the large community in the world that have figured out just how easy it is to eavesdrop and manipulate Wi-Fi traffic.
