WatchGuard Releases Firebox T70 Network Security Appliance


WatchGuard Technologies, a supplier of advanced network security solutions, announced the release of its newest hardware appliance, the Firebox T70, which has set a new standard for tabletop performance. According to Miercom, an independent testing lab, the T70 delivers the fastest throughput available in the industry today, with speeds of more than 1 Gbps when operating in full Unified Threat Management (UTM) mode, which is 52% higher than the average competitor tested and 38% higher than WatchGuard's next closest competitor.
Organizations today require fast, reliable and secure Internet connectivity, but are struggling to find network security solutions that can keep up with their ever-growing needs. This challenge is further exacerbated by the growing availability of fiber broadband around the world. The WatchGuard T70 is ideal for small and midsize businesses or distributed enterprises that need the highest performance available in a tabletop security appliance.
Key features include:

  • Performance: Customers benefit from the high speeds and performance levels available in this tabletop security appliance, with more than 1 Gbps throughput with full UTM protection enabled. 

  • Power over Ethernet (PoE): Using the two PoE+ ports to power peripheral devices, such as wireless access points, network administrators can extend the reach of their networks without having to run costly AC power to remote devices.

  • RapidDeploy: Centralized IT teams can use RapidDeploy to pre-configure appliances for quick and non-technical installations at distributed locations.

  • Full UTM Protection for Fiber Broadband: Organizations can benefit from fiber broadband services, such as Google Fiber, knowing the T70 can manage these expanding speeds. 

“The T70 provides the highest levels of performance and capability I’ve seen in such a small unit. I can now deploy the same enterprise-grade security services across our entire organization, whether in a small office, or at larger sites,” said Andrew Evers, Group IT Manager at Red Carnation Hotels. “The T70 delivers a small footprint, allowing for a good amount of diversification and growth, before needing to trade-up. Ultimately, this solution represents a valued addition to the WatchGuard family because it hardens security, enables automation for my team and creates greater flexibility and enablement for my users.”
