Keep Your Small Business Network Secure and Connected
Protect Your Network’s Perimeter
Managing a small business network is challenging. With a host of malicious
threats on the Internet that can harm your network, you need solid network
protection – a mere router can’t do the job. Small businesses also have to deal
with many of the concerns that large enterprises face, including the demands of
multiple applications, high-volume traffic, and remote users. And if you’re coping
with typical small business resource constraints, you’ll want a solution that has
genuine ease of use, is affordable, and can scale and expand as your business
requirements grow.
Extending the strong network security you have at your central office to branch
and remote offices shouldn’t be a resource drain for your IT department. You
need the same powerful protection at your network perimeter, while being able
to manage the entire system from one central location. For maximum efficiency
and cost-effectiveness, all components of your security solution must
interoperate seamlessly, giving you the ability to set uniform security policies
for the entire network that can be globally updated with a few mouse clicks.
Meanwhile, the appliance at your remote and branch office, whether wired or
wireless, must have advanced networking features to guarantee that inter-office
traffic is prioritized and bandwidth managed.
The solution: Firebox X Edge from WatchGuard – designed to meet the
needs of the small business network.
The solution: Firebox X Edge from WatchGuard – the ideal solution for
extending the power of your Firebox X Core or Firebox X Peak from the
central office to your remote/branch offices.
