Solved! Go to Solution.
i am actually helping my client.They are using an advanced security for all the firewalls they have curently.so i need an advice that if we can introduce the Z1 In the same organization,will it function?
Z1's wont be able to do Advanced security features. You can get Enterprise license (for the Z1 only) and add it to the same organization.
We were skeptical about this as well. What we do is full tunnel the connection to our MX600 which has the advanced security features. At that point, the users at the Z1 site follow the rules from the MX600.
The idea of the Z1 is to Auto-VPN back into something larger, It has always been designed to be a SOHO devices and to hang off a larger supported platform, The local breakout was designed to be used as a way of connecting to the ISP that is connected into the office/house without interfering with the corporate network i.e so family member can use the Wifi but not transverse the corporate network but to just break out locally
From my understanding the Z1s do not support any advanced security such as Threat Protection or Content Filtering. You will need an MX64 or higher to support these features as well as the proper licensing.
