New T-series models


Panda security
In June, WatchGuard will introduce their latest range of tabletop Firebox hardware. Firebox T20, T40, and T80 are specifically engineered for the needs of midsize and distributed enterprises, consolidating the most important network / security functions in a small form-factor.


Each appliance provides an industry-best set of threat management solutions. This includes gateway antivirus, content and URL filtering, antispam, intrusion prevention, application control, Cloud sandboxing, and endpoint protection – all in an easy-to-manage package. The new appliances also deliver improved throughput, especially in HTTPS inspection. The release of Firebox T20, T40, and T80 gives you a powerful tool for administering and enforcing policy across your customers’ extended network. It brings full UTM protection to small and medium-sized environments for tighter security.


Key features:
  • Integrated Wi-Fi (T20-W and T40-W) – The Wi-Fi capable Firebox T20-W and T40-W support the 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard, ensuring faster speeds for your customers.
  • Power over Ethernet – PoE+ – Integrated support for PoE+ means they can avoid running separate power cables to peripheral devices like security cameras, VoIP phones or wireless access points.
  • SD-WAN – Our new T Series models make network optimization easy. With integrated SD-WAN, customers can decrease use of expensive MPLS or 4G/LTE connections, while improving resiliency and performance of their network.
  • IntelligentAV and Access Portal – Now available in Firebox T40/T40-W and T80 models.
  • Optional Expansion Module (T80) – Firebox T80 includes the option to customize their port configuration with expansion modules, for integrated fibre connectivity right from the appliance. Optional 1Gb SFP expansion modules are also available.
  • Automation CoreWatchGuard Firebox T Series appliances are designed with automation to the core, allowing IT teams to do more with less. Deploy from the Cloud, update signatures, detect and kill malware – all without lifting a finger.
