WatchGuard Technologies, Inc. Brings Security and Convenience to the Distributed Enterprise

WatchGuard Technologies, Inc. announced the release of the Firebox T30 and T50 family of powerful, enterprise-strength Unified Threat Management (UTM) appliances engineered specifically to address the rapidly changing security threats faced by small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and Distributed Enterprises. Faster, more widely accessible connectivity is enabling organizations to be more distributed than ever before. In addition to securing the communications between a traditional corporate headquarters and remote employee sites, many distributed enterprises must also support multiple locations which operate like a typical small business. This relationship between a centralized entity and many independent business locations is especially common in the retail, hospitality, medical, and financial industries and creates very unique network security challenges. For these organizations, centralized security policy is critical, as is the ease of deployment of the security solution at the remote business location. The ability to maintain visibility across their entire network is equally as important for compliance reporting, health monitoring, and business intelligence purposes. Access to value-added services, such as secure wireless, is also a huge benefit. WatchGuard's T- series of tabletop UTM appliances are ideal for remote sites, branch offices, and SMBs. Their small form factor makes them easy to conceal in environments where there is most likely not a dedicated datacenter and their new built-in power over Ethernet (PoE) port makes it easier than ever to add secure wireless services with a WatchGuard Access Point. All of WatchGuard's Unified Threat Management (UTM) appliances include access to the company's unique, RapidDeploy feature which enables centralized IT teams to pre-configure appliances for quick and non-technical installation at distributed remote sites. This feature is especially ideal for retailers, hospitality chains, healthcare co-ops, and other Distributed Enterprises. Also standard with all WatchGuard appliances is access to Dimension, the company's actionable threat intelligence platform. Dimension aggregates data from all WatchGuard appliances across a customer's network and translates that data into visually rich and actionable information. With Dimension, customers can easily see not only what is going on in their network but proactively take steps, faster than ever before, to update their security policy immediately, right from the reporting dashboards, to stop malicious sites, applications and users.
