Mushroom Networks SD-WAN and WatchGuard UTM Configuration Guide

Configuration Setup Summary

The purpose of this document is to provide guidance to customers for service chaining Mushroom Networks’ multi-WAN SD-WAN solution with WatchGuard’s Next Generation Firewall and Unified Threat Management solution. 


Mushroom’s secure VLL (Virtual Leased Line) overlay tunnel will be set up between Mushroom’s Customer Premise Equipment (Truffle appliance) and Mushroom’s Cloud Relay (as an EC2 instance in the Amazon AWS cloud). Mushroom’s Cloud Relay will pass through all upstream traffic to WatchGuard’s Firebox Cloud instance (again hosted as an EC2 instance in the Amazon AWS cloud) providing UTM services such as Intrusion Prevention, Web Content Filtering, etc.
