WatchGuard Firebox T15 Review

Introducing the WatchGuard Firebox T15.
Appliance with 1yr Total Security Suite.

Five Star Review from one of the industry’s most respected IT Review Sites.
Giving the WatchGuard Firebox T15 – ITPRO Editor’s Choice.

Perfect for small businesses, the Firebox T15 offers the toughest gateway security measures at a pocket-friendly price. Excellent value; Superb range of protection features; Great monitoring facilities.

Product Review:

“Stepping up as the new entry-point to WatchGuard's tabletop security appliance family, the Firebox T15 offers a set of features that belie its small stature. It's excellent value too, as it offers super-strength network security at a price small businesses will love. Professional 3-year warranty conditions as standard.”

“The T15 is no slouch in the performance stakes either as it boasts a high raw firewall throughput of 400Mbits/sec. Enabling gateway AV drops this by 120Mbits/sec and even with all UTM features running, it still musters a very respectable 90Mbits/sec.”

IT Pro Verdict:

“The Firebox T15 is a remarkable little appliance that looks to have every security angle covered. Combine this prowess with its low price and it earns a well-deserved IT Pro Editor's Choice award.”
