The Cisco Meraki MX64 is an integrated router, next-generation firewall, traffic shaper, and Internet gateway that is centrally managed over the web. The MX64 offers an extensive feature set, yet is incredibly easy to deploy and manage. Intuitive web-based administration eliminates specialized training and dedicated staff, and cloud-based centralized management provides seamless multi-site networks, automatic firmware upgrades, and much more.
The MX64 supports bleeding-edge and market-leading intrusion prevention (IPS) via an integrated Sourcefire engine. IPS is performed via rulesets: pre-defined security policies that determine the level of protection needed. Sourcefire refreshes rulesets daily to ensure protection against the latest vulnerabilities—including exploits, viruses, rootkits, and more—and these are pushed via the cloud to MX customers within an hour, with no manual staging or patching needed.
Combine this threat protection with integrated malware/anti-phishing and cloud content filtering, and network admins have a robust security solution that is easy to deploy and seamlessly maintains itself.

The Meraki MX64 is a cloud managed security appliance with 1 WAN (Internet) port, 4 LAN Gigabit Ethernet ports and supports both site-to-site VPN and client VPN, up to 50 clients, has a WAN throughput of 250 Mbps and is an ideal security appliance for a small home office or remote teleworker. The MX64 also supports advanced security features such as intrusion detection and prevention, content filtering, antivirus/malware detection and prevention, etc. as long as you purchase the respective MX Advanced Security License vs the less feature rich MX Enterprise License. Licenses are available in 1, 3, 5, 7 & 10 year terms with the longer terms being the best value. With the multi-year terms you essentially get 3 years for the price of 2 years, 5 years for the price of 3 years, 7 years for the price of 5 years and 10 years for the price of 7 years. Therefore, you should only consider purchasing the 3, 5, 7 and 10 year licenses only. The Meraki dashboard and enterprise support the licenses give you access to are both top notch. The build quality of the device is incredibly high and is built to last coming with a limited lifetime warranty with next day advance ship replacement in the event of hardware failure. Cisco Meraki's ease of deployment, management and reporting via their cloud-based dashboard is simply not matched in the industry.
