WatchGuard Dimension™ provides industry's first, real-time view into the performance of security policies across segmented networks
New WatchGuard Firebox M440 UTM/NGFW appliance makes it easy to apply the right policies to the correct network segment – without complex configurations.
WatchGuard® Technologies has simplified network security with the launch of the WatchGuard Firebox ® M440 UTM/NGFW appliance. The Firebox M440 is the first appliance rich in truly independent ports, removing the need for complex configurations such as VLANs. The WatchGuard Firebox ® M440 UTM/NGFW appliance simplifies the critical process of applying traffic-appropriate policies across multiple network segments – a process that to date, has often been beyond the technical reach of many IT organizations. In addition, WatchGuard's visibility solution, Dimension™, provides the industry's only real-time, single-pane-of-glass view of the effect each policy is having on that segment's traffic.
The Firebox M440 makes it easy for IT professionals to create segments, map traffic, create custom policies based on what traffic is in each segment, and instantly see how it affects traffic. Applying the appropriate security policies to the correct traffic flows is what truly defines the success of segmentation strategy and the Firebox M440 takes the configuration complexity out of the process.
The WatchGuard Firebox M440 delivers 25 1Gb Ethernet ports, eight that deliver Power over Ethernet (PoE), plus two 10 Gb SFP+ (fibre) ports.
