Watchguard Technologies Announces Launch of the WatchGuard Firebox M440 UTM/NGFW Appliance

WatchGuard Technologies continues its streak of innovations designed to simplify network security with the launch of the WatchGuard Firebox M440 UTM/NGFW appliance. The Firebox M440 is the first appliance rich in truly independent ports, removing the need for complex configurations such as VLANs and instantly simplifying the critical process of applying traffic-appropriate policies across multiple network segments – a process that to date, has often been beyond the technical reach of many IT organizations.

The WatchGuard Firebox M440 delivers 25 1Gb Ethernet ports, eight that deliver Power over Ethernet, plus two 10 Gb SFP+ ports.
