WatchGuard Launches New Line of Firewall Products to Enhance Unified Security for Remote and Distributed Businesses




February 16, 2023 - WatchGuard® Technologies, a global leader in unified cybersecurity, today announced the release of its new Firebox T25/T25-W, T45/T45-POE/T45-W-POE, and T85-POE tabletop firewall appliances. Powered by WatchGuard’s Unified Security Platform® architecture to deliver comprehensive security and simplified management through WatchGuard Cloud, these new firewalls are engineered to provide the performance that remote and distributed business environments need for better protection against the latest network security threats.


With more memory and faster processing speeds for enhanced throughput, this new line of Firebox products enables WatchGuard partners, MSPs, and IT administrators to secure branch offices, office equipment, remote devices, retail point-of-sale (POS) software, and remote users from complex and emerging threats, while minimizing network configuration and management requirements.


“IT environments of all types and sizes face advanced and sophisticated threats from attackers, but SMBs and branch offices typically don't have dedicated technical staff to configure, install and manage network security appliances,” said Ryan Poutre, product manager at WatchGuard Technologies. “This new generation of Fireboxes takes full advantage of our Unified Security Platform architecture, enabling MSPs to provide the robust solutions and simplified management they require to meet the needs of a wide range of customers and deployment scenarios.”


With enterprise-class security services like APT Blocker (sandbox malware detection) and ThreatSync for shared knowledge between endpoint and network, the new Fireboxes are ideal for small businesses that lack a designated security team. Beyond providing advanced malware protection for distributed environments, the new appliances include SD-WAN to optimize network performance by dynamically distributing network traffic across multiple connections based on defined policies. These new Fireboxes take advantage of the latest updates in WatchGuard Cloud to display a graphical real-time update of SD-WAN link status and any failovers, and they also support the latest Fireware capabilities for load sharing across multiple links. These capabilities are included in all of WatchGuard's service packages.


“WatchGuard's tabletop Firebox appliances give us all the features and security protection of their bigger rackmount brothers, and make us more efficient with zero-touch provisioning to deploy and configure devices, upgrade firmware and apply policies after a remote user activates a device. We can quickly deploy and configure SD-WAN via WatchGuard Cloud from remote locations,” said Troy Midwood, chief technology officer at Aabyss. “These appliances are another example of WatchGuard's focus on building great products that enable our MSP business.”


Key features for each of the new Firebox products include:

WatchGuard Firebox T25/T25-W, T45/T45-POE/T45-W-POE, and T85-POE and all WatchGuard solutions are available in Romania through Simple IT, WatchGuard Partner in Romania.
