WatchGuard launches ruggedised network security appliance for harsh environments

WatchGuard Technologies has released its new Firebox T35-R industrially hardened, network security appliance.

The T35-R allows midmarket businesses, distributed enterprises and the managed service providers to extend WatchGuard’s security services and performance beyond traditional office and data centre settings to protect against malware, intrusions and other threats in the harshest environments.

“As cyber criminals set their sights on the massive wave of newly-adopted and potentially insecure industrial internet of things (IIoT) devices, businesses need network security solutions that can withstand the unforgiving deployment conditions present in harsh environments,” said Brendan Patterson, VP of product management at WatchGuard.

“The T35-R is designed to meet this growing demand, offering the same industry-leading, enterprise-grade performance and security protections as our conventional network security appliances, with added resistance to temperature, moisture and dust concerns often found in manufacturing, oil and gas plants, utilities sites, agricultural environments and other rugged locations.”

The Firebox T35-R is fully dust- and splash-proof, and capable of operating in temperatures of -40 to +60 degrees Celsius. It can operate on 12v to 48v DC power or use an optional AC power supply.

Promising to make site-to-site VPN connectivity simple, reliable and manageable, the T35-R empowers administrators to enable advanced security protections including APT Blocker, Threat Detection and Response, DNSWatch, IPS, Gateway AntiVirus, without slowing network speeds.

NSS Labs recently recommended WatchGuard Firebox in its annual NGFW report as one of only two vendors that successfully defeated all evasion attempts.
