Cloud and Virtual Firewalls

FireboxV

Real Security for a Virtualized World

WatchGuard FireboxV brings best-in-class network security to the world of virtualization, enabling your virtual environments to be just as secure as your physical one.

Organizations of all sizes are turning to virtualization to reduce costs and increase the efficiency, availability, and flexibility of their IT resources. But virtualization comes at a cost. Virtual environments are complex to manage and vulnerable to security threats.

Traditional firewalls are designed for office environments or rack-mounted in a climate-controlled server room, where issues with temperature, water and dust are negligible. Initiatives to connect and modernize operations in harsh environments require a device that can withstand these conditions, ensure effective security, and deliver consistently high performance.

Virtualize The Traditional Gateway Firewall For Unprecedented Flexibility

WatchGuard FireboxV protects not only the physical perimeter of the datacenter, but the “virtual edge.” Now you can easily implement policy that protects the data in the corporate database from the messaging infrastructure, or confidential HR information from financial data from other divisions - even when running on the same servers.

Consolidate Multiple Firewalls For High Impact Efficiencies

Service providers - hosting, cloud, or managed security services - can deploy multiple instances of FireboxV on servers at the perimeter of their datacenters. These virtual firewalls are isolated from each other, so service level agreements (SLAs) can be guaranteed to each tenant, and a configuration change to one doesn’t affect the others. And yet they can all be managed by the provider using a single intuitive console.

Eliminate Redundant Hardware Costs While Security The Virtual Networks - Branch Consolidation

As larger branches and divisions consolidate local servers - file, print, voice, and more - onto one box, a virtual firewall can be deployed on the physical server, insulating all traffic from the public Internet. A single VPN tunnel can provide a secure path back to corporate datacenters or virtual private clouds - yielding cost savings at every location without compromising security.

Firebox Cloud

Extend Your Security Perimeter

It’s a fact – businesses are migrating services from on-premises servers into the cloud. Email servers, web servers, customer relationship management systems (CRM), and file storage are migrating to public cloud services. With so much sensitive data moving to the cloud, security is essential. WatchGuard’s Firebox Cloud allows network administrators to extend their security perimeter to the cloud and protect servers running within a public cloud environment.

Firebox Cloud Datasheet

While cloud service providers are responsible for the security of the cloud, protecting your sensitive data as it moves to and from the cloud falls to you. Under this shared responsibility model, it is crucial that administrators take every step possible to defend their data and deflect cyber criminals. WatchGuard Firebox Cloud brings the protection of WatchGuard’s leading Firebox® Unified Threat Management (UTM) appliances to public cloud environments. Firebox Cloud can quickly and easily be deployed to protect servers in a public cloud from attacks such as botnets, cross-site scripting, SQL injection attempts, and other intrusion vectors.

Built For The Cloud Environment

Companies that move their applications and services to public cloud services need to provide the same level of security that they provide on premises. WatchGuard Firebox Cloud provides UTM security services for detecting attacks, malware, and web content filtering that are not available from Cloud Providers. Firebox Cloud also simplifies the process of establishing secure connections to your public cloud environment by enabling WatchGuard-to-WatchGuard VPN tunnels.

Extending The Watchguard Security Perimiter

Small-to-midsize businesses and distributed enterprises with portions of their infrastructure running in the cloud can streamline their configuration and maintenance efforts by extending their security perimeter with Firebox Cloud. Using Firebox Cloud in conjunction with physical Firebox appliances eliminates the need to become familiar with a separate product line to protect a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC).
