Earlier this year, the WatchGuard Firebox T10 entered the security appliance market and proved itself a top contender for companies needing to better manage and protect network access by small office/home office workers outside their corporate firewalls. Despite its small footprint, the T10 packs a performance punch and delivers complete enterprise-level network security that’s easy to deploy and protects everywhere workers connect.
Today, PC Pro, the UK’s No. 1 IT publication, recognized the T10’s prowess and named the box to its A-List, calling it a “remarkable little appliance” and said it was “bursting with features at a surprisingly low price.” The six-star review of the tiny solution also noted “WatchGuard’s little Firebox T10 changes the landscape.”
The review claimed the affordable Firebox T10 brings a “wealth of extras including an intrusion-prevention system (IPS), web-content filtering, anti-spam, gateway AntiVirus, application control and HTTPS inspection.” And that the T10 “offers virtually every feature present in WatchGuard’s higher-end UTM appliances.”
This robust feature list in such a small solution is especially important in today’s distributed work environments where a clearly defined network perimeter has all but disappeared. In these settings, and for smaller businesses, end-point network security solutions are critical for providing the technologies and visibility necessary for protecting against advanced network attacks. PC Pro said managed service providers would appreciate WatchGuard Dimension, the cloud-based, big-data visibility tool included with the T10.
No stone was left unturned in this detailed review that evaluated the T10 on everything from performance to features & design, to value for money. In the end, the stellar review led PC Pro to call the T10’s place on the A-List “well deserved” and is WatchGuard’s second nod by the publication in as many years.
