Meraki MX68W firewall – Advanced Security License

SKU: LIC-MX68W-SEC~PVAR Categories: , Brand: Cisco Meraki


Like all of Meraki’s appliances, the Cisco Meraki MX68W firewall is easy to learn and operate. Also, it’s 100% cloud-managed. This is where the MX series truly shines. The Meraki MX68W can be remotely deployed in minutes. And, most actions in the cloud interface are point and click. Security settings are simple to synchronize across thousands of sites.

The Cisco Meraki MX68W firewall pushes 450Mbps of data at once. Therefore, it’s perfectly suitable for setups of up to 50 users. Its Auto VPN technology securely connects branches in 3 clicks. This is done through an intuitive, web-based dashboard.

And, it can support up to 50 connections at once at up to 200 Mbps. To secure a site in minutes simply add your MX68 to the dashboard. Then, enable intrusion prevention. Finally, just select the level of threat protection you want.


We get asked a lot about the differences between Meraki’s two licensing choices. They are the Advanced Security License, and the Enterprise License. Please note that you must have a valid license in order for your Meraki firewall to work properly.

Basically, these two licensing options add security and other functions that really “beef up” your firewall. Essentially, they are like subscriptions to features that turbocharge your appliance. They are available in 1, 3, and 5 year options.

What is the Meraki Advanced Security License?

The Meraki Advanced Security License is a heftier brother to the Enterprise license option. However, many of our customers feel the the added security features are worth it for their Meraki MX68W firewall. Most notable are probably full anti-phishing and anti-malware. Additionally, Smart anti-intrusion systems add another layer of protection against direct attack. Like all of their software, these systems are kept current automatically.

Plus, you get full content filtering options, including compatibility with Google SafeSearch. As a result, it’s great for environments where the content needs to be clean.

What is the Meraki Enterprise License?

The Enterprise License is the more economical of the two. As a result, there are some features it surrenders to the Advanced Security License. Some of those are Geography based firewall rules, Intrusion detection and prevention, Content Filtering, and Web Search Filtering.

With any Meraki license, you get a full hardware warranty with next-business-day replacements in most situations. Your license also brings unlimited technical assistance at no additional costs.

Of course, you will need to decide whether your organization needs the extra security features offered with the Advanced License or not. However, you can call Corporate Armor at 877-449-0458, or email us with any questions you may have.
