General Information
ManufacturerCisco Systems, IncManufacturer Part NumberMX105-HWManufacturer Website Address NameMerakiProduct SeriesMXProduct ModelMX105Product NameMX105 Network Security/Firewall ApplianceMarketing InformationThe Cisco Meraki MX are multifunctional security and SD-WAN enterprise appliances with a wide set of capabilities to address multiple use cases-from an all-in-one device. Organizations of all sizes and across all industries rely on the MX to deliver secure connectivity to hub locations or multi-cloud environments, as well as application quality of experience (QoE), through advanced analytics with machine learning.

The MX is 100% cloud-managed, so installation and remote management is truly zero touch, making it ideal for distributed branches, campuses, and data center locations. Natively integrated with a comprehensive suite of secure network and assurance capabilities, the MX eliminates the need for multiple appliances. These capabilities include application-based firewalling, content filtering, web search filtering, SNORT®-based intrusion detection and prevention, Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP), site-to-site Auto VPN, client VPN, WAN and cellular failover, dynamic path selection, web application health, VoIP health, and more. SD-WAN can be easily be extended to deliver optimized access to resources in public and private cloud environments with virtual MX appliances (vMX). Public clouds supported with vMX include Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, and Alibaba Cloud and private cloud support through Cisco NFVIS.
