WatchGuard XTM 2 Series appliances deliver a new class of performance-driven security. Network protection is stronger than ever, with full HTTPS inspection and VoIP support. All models have three 1-Gigabit Ethernet ports for faster link speeds, and optional wireless capabilities include dual-band 802.11n technology for greater wireless speed and responsiveness.
An XTM 2 Series appliance can be used as a stand-alone security solution for a small business, and makes an ideal endpoint for connecting a secure VPN tunnel back to a WatchGuard XTM or WatchGuard Firebox network.
Pros: Great for VPN. This router will allow extra features needed with some VPN circuits. Fair price for capability. Routers of equivalent capabilities will cost closer to $800~$1000.
Cons: You do need to be expert at networking to use this product. You cannot get to the Internet with this router until you go through an activation process. I find this ridiculous and cumbersome and also frustrating. I bought the router, so why does Watchguard make me jump through extra steps just to get it on line?
Other Thoughts: Because of the activation issue, I will probably never purchase another of their routers. I refuse to be held hostage so that they can try to push other pay for add-ons.
