Every Meraki Security Appliance supports several features, like a stateful firewall and integrated Sourcefire intrusion prevention (IPS) engine, to secure your networks. Threat definitions and filter lists are seamlessly updated, ensuring every MX has bleeding-edge protection from the latest vulnerabilities and troublesome websites.
The Meraki dashboard provides deep visibility and control over all of your Security Appliances from any Internet-accessible device, anytime, anywhere. View networked clients, bandwidth consumption, and application usage across all sites—and push policies to block, shape, or whitelist activity to optimize performance and user experience.
Redundancy is built into the MX several times over: from dual WAN and cellular uplinks to keep your MX connected to the Internet, to warm spare failover that ensures device integrity, to self-healing site-to-site VPN that keeps branch locations securely connected.
