Up to 8 Gbps firewall throughput, 2.6 Gbps UTM throughputBecause smaller companies are generally less protected and easier to break into, small business has become the new big target for cyber attacks. The Firebox® M270 and M370 firewalls are specifically engineered to defend all types of small businesses against attacks that are no less fierce than those targeting larger organizations. Our unique product architecture enables SMBs to leverage best-in-class security services – from URL filtering and intrusion prevention to application control and data loss prevention - without the cost and complexity of running multiple single-point solutions. The M270 and M370 are part of WatchGuard’s award-winning Firebox security platform. The platform not only provides the most complete suite of unified security controls on the market today, it has consistently been the first to offer solutions for addressing new and evolving network threats including advanced malware and ransomware.
Blazing Fast PerformanceFirebox M270 and M370 Unified Threat Management (UTM) solutions are up to 3 times faster than competing products with all security layers turned on, and up to 94 percent faster performing HTTPS inspection, according to the independent test lab Miercom. This ensures you never have to compromise network security for performance.
Quick And Simple DeploymentSMBs usually have smaller, less technical staff, which can make network expansion challenging. RapidDeploy – a powerful, cloud-based deployment and configuration tool – comes standard with WatchGuard Firebox appliances. With it, IT staff can create and store configuration data in the cloud – public or private – and have the appliance directly shipped to its destination. Once the device arrives, it can connect to the cloud for a secure download of its configuration settings, saving your staff travel time and money.
Easy To Manage And UnderstandThe M270 and M370 are not only easy to initially configure and deploy, they are also designed with an emphasis on centralized management, making ongoing policy and network management simple and straightforward. WatchGuard Dimension, included with purchase, provides a suite of big data visibility and reporting tools that instantly identify and distill key network security threats, issues and trends so you can take immediate preventive or corrective action. Security is complex, running it doesn’t have to be.

WatchGuard Security Services
WatchGuard offers the most comprehensive portfolio of network security services, from traditional IPS, GAV, application control, spam blocking, and web filtering to more advanced services for protecting against advanced malware, ransomware, and the loss of sensitive data. WatchGuard also offers a full suite of network visibility and management services.
Fundamental Security Services
IPS uses continually updated signatures to scan traffic on all major protocols to provide realtime protection against network threats, including spyware, SQL injections, cross-site scripting, and buffer overflows.
A powerful, cloud-based reputation lookup service that protects web users from malicious sites and botnets, while dramatically improving web processing overhead.
A subscription-based service for Firebox appliances that generates a visual map of all nodes on your network so you can easily see where you may be at risk.
In addition to automatically blocking known malicious sites, WebBlocker’s granular content and URL filtering tools enable you to block inappropriate content, conserve network bandwidth, and increase employee productivity.
Selectively allow, block, or restrict access to applications based on a user’s department, job function, and time of day and to then see, in real-time, what’s being accessed on your network and by whom.
Leverage our continuously updated signatures to identify and block known spyware, viruses, trojans, worms, rogueware and blended threats – including new variants of known viruses. At the same time, heuristic analysis tracks down suspicious data constructions and actions to make sure unknown viruses don’t slip by.
Real-time spam detection for protection from outbreaks. Our spamBlocker is so fast and effective, it can review up to 4 billion messages per day.
Advanced Security Services
APT Blocker uses an awardwinning next-gen sandbox to detect and stop the most sophisticated attacks including ransomware, zero day threats and other advanced malware.
This service prevents accidental or malicious data loss by scanning text and common file types to detect sensitive information attempting to leave the network.
Access Portal provides central location for access to cloud-hosted applications, and secure, clientless access to internal resources with RDP and SSH.
Correlate network and endpoint security events with enterprise-grade threat intelligence to detect, prioritize and enable immediate action to stop malware attacks. Improve visibility by evolving your existing security model to extend past prevention, to now include correlation, detection and response.
Reduce malware infections by detecting and blocking malicious DNS requests, redirecting users to a safe page with information to reinforce security best practices.
Dimension translates data collected from all appliances across your network into actionable network and threat intelligence. Dimension Command gives you the power to take action to mitigate those threats instantly, from one central console.
One Appliance, One Package, Total Security
Simplicity is our mission at WatchGuard and that mission extends beyond how the product is built to how it is packaged. While all of our services are offered à la carte, we have worked to develop two packages that simplify the decision-making process. The Total and Basic Security Suite packages are available on our Firebox T and M Series appliances, as well as our Firebox Cloud and FireboxV virtual models.
- The Basic Security Suite includes all of the traditional network security services typical to a UTM appliance: IPS, GAV, URL filtering, application control, spam blocking and reputation lookup. It also includes our centralized management and network visibility capabilities, as well as, our standard 24x7 support.
- The Total Security Suite includes all services offered with the Basic Security Suite plus advanced malware protection, data loss protection, enhanced network visibility capabilities, a secure access portal, and the ability to take action against threats right from Dimension, our network visibility platform.
