Features and benefits

Threat-focused NGFW

Improve business resiliency and maintain performance with superior threat defense. Apply granular application control. Protect against malware. Shrink time to detection and remediation. Reduce complexity with the on-device management interface.

Optimized performance and port density

Firewall throughput speeds from 2 Gbps to 8.5 Gbps. Support for sixteen (16) 1 GE ports on the low-end models. The high-end models support up to twenty-four (24) 1 GE ports or up to sixteen (16) 10 GE ports. All in a 1RU form factor. 

Innovative architecture

With its unique dual-CPU, multicore architecture, the 2100 can improve performance by routing workloads to different chips. And enabling the threat protection features does not affect the firewall throughput.
