A good value

on 9/26/2006

Watchguard makes firewalls, and has done a good job of combining a switch, firewall and web filter (an extra cost option). I bought it primarily for the web filter, which you buy separately. The WebBlocker allows filtering by category and is dynamically updated (every web request results in a query to the watchguard web site to verify if the web site is ok). Setup is a bit cumbersome as you have to cut and paste license keys from the watchguard web site. The firewall gives a lot of granularity on both incoming and outgoing traffic. Glitches: - if it has a problem with getting to the watchguard site, web access is very slow until you reset the firebox.

Product Overview

This easy-to-deploy, model-upgradeable, VPN endpoint and firewall security appliance was especially designed for telecommuters with limited networking experience, and offers best-in-class performance, work/home network separation, and intuitive remote management for network administrators in the central office. Firebox X5 is the all-in-one firewall/VPN appliance that will handle all of your telecommuters security needs now and in the future. Small- to mid-sized businesses already protecting their central office networks with Firebox X5, can now extend that commercial-grade security to their remote and telecommuting employees with Firebox X5.
