The W20 is a cost-effective firewall solution that provides users with high performance and great value for money. As an entry-level platform it complements and builds upon the W3 and W5 and it is ideal for businesses with larger branch offices and small regional offices. Its release further demonstrates our dedication to providing the best quality of security to all sectors of the market.”

The expanded W20 range further enhances the Clavister product portfolio.
