With rates of work-from-home increasing, home offices and small offices are at greater risk than ever before for cyber-attacks. They are often viewed as easy targets for an attacker to enter a corporate network. Firebox T20 is a powerful firewall tool for administering policy across your network, bringing full UTM protection to smaller office sites and remote workers for exceptional IT security.
