Meraki MX65 Cloud Managed Security Appliance for Distributed Sites
Cisco Meraki MX Security Appliances are ideal for organizations considering a Unified Threat Managment (UTM) solution, for distributed sites, campuses or datacenter VPN concentration. Since the MX is 100% cloud managed, installation and remote management is simple.
The MX has a comprehensive suite of network services, eliminating the need for multiple appliances. These services include SD-WAN capabilities, application-based firewalling, content filtering, web search filtering, SNORT® based intrusion detection and prevention, Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP), web caching, 4G cellular failover and more. Auto VPN and SD-WAN features are available on our hardware and virtual appliances, configurable in Amazon Web Services.
Dual POE+ Ports
The MX65 and MX65W include two ports with 802.3at (PoE+). This built-in power capability removes the need for additional hardware to power critical branch devices.
- 2x 802.3at (PoE+) ports capable of providing a total of 60W
- APs, phones, cameras and other PoE enabled devices can be powered without the need for AC adapters, PoE converters, or unmanaged PoE switches
The MX platform has an extensive suite of security features including IDS/IPS, content filtering, web search filtering, antimalware, geo-IP based firewalling, IPsec VPN connectivity and Cisco Advanced Malware Protection, while providing the performance required for modern, bandwidth-intensive networks.
Layer 7 fingerprinting technology lets administrators identify unwanted content and applications and prevent recreational apps like BitTorrent from wasting precious bandwidth.
The integrated Cisco SNORT® engine delivers superior intrusion prevention coverage, a key requirement for PCI 3.0 compliance. The MX also uses the Webroot BrightCloud® URL categorization database for CIPA / IWF compliant content-filtering, Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) engine for anti-malware, AMP Threat Grid Cloud, and MaxMind for geo-IP based security rules.
Best of all, these industry-leading Layer 7 security engines and signatures are always kept up-to-date via the cloud, simplifying network security management and providing peace of mind to IT administrators.
SD-WAN Made Simple
Software-defined WAN is a new approach to network connectivity that lowers operational costs and improves resource usage for multisite deployments to use bandwidth more efficiently. This allows service providers to offer their customers the highest possible level of performance for critical applications without sacrificing security or data privacy.
- Transport Independence
Apply bandwidth, routing, and security policies across a variety of mediums (MPLS, Internet, or 3G/4G LTE) with a single consistent, intuitive workflow
- Application Optimization
Layer 7 traffic shaping and application prioritization optimize the traffic for mission-critical applications and user experience
- Intelligent Path Control
Dynamic policy and performance based path selection with automatic load balancing for maximum network reliability and performance
- Secure Connectivity
Integrated Cisco Security threat defense technologies for direct Internet access combined with IPsec VPN to ensure secure communication with cloud applications, remote offices, or datacenters
Cloud Managed Architecture
Built on Cisco Meraki’s award-winning cloud architecture, the MX is the industry’s only 100% cloud-managed solution for Unified Threat Management (UTM) and SD-WAN in a single appliance. MX appliances self-provision, automatically pulling policies and configuration settings from the cloud. Powerful remote management tools provide network-wide visibility and control, and enable administration without the need for on-site networking expertise.
Cloud services deliver seamless firmware and security signature updates, automatically establish site-to-site VPN tunnels, and provide 24x7 network monitoring. Moreover, the MX’s intuitive browser-based management interface removes the need for expensive and time-consuming training.
For customers moving IT services to a public cloud service, Meraki offers a virtual MX for use in Amazon Web Services enabling Auto VPN peering and SD-WAN for dynamic path selection.
Virtual MX is a virtual instance of a Meraki security appliance, dedicated specifically to providing the simple configuration benefits of site-to-site Auto VPN for customers running or migrating IT services to the public cloud. A virtual MX is added via the Amazon Web Services marketplace and then configured in the Meraki dashboard, just like any other MX. It functions like a VPN concentrator.
An Auto VPN to a virtual MX is like having a direct Ethernet connection to a private datacenter. The virtual MX can support up to 500 Mbps of VPN throughput, providing ample bandwidth for mission critical IT services hosted in the public cloud, like Active Directory, logging, or file and print services.
