WatchGuard launches new security appliance
Dubai, December 12, 2011
WatchGuard Technologies, a global leader in business security solutions, has launched a new security appliance for small businesses in the Middle East.
Ideal for businesses with 30 to 50 users, the WatchGuard XTM 330 appliance provides advanced network protection in an all-in-one rack-mount gateway security appliance, a statement said.
“Small businesses are increasingly becoming targets of hackers and sophisticated cyber attacks,” said Tim Helming, director of Product Management at WatchGuard Technologies.
“Easy to use and easy to manage, the WatchGuard XTM 330 is the ideal solution for small organizations. Now businesses with 50 employees can have the same type of security and protection that Fortune 1000 enterprises, financial institutions and government agencies use to keep out spyware, malware and other web threats.”
“No other security appliance, UTM or next-generation firewall offers as much capability and firewall throughout in this price class as the WatchGuard XTM 330. For small businesses, this is a redefining moment to combat cyber-attacks and Internet criminals,” he added.
The XTM 330 sports the latest security services from WatchGuard to meet any number of business needs, the statement said.
In addition to next-generation firewall and intrusion prevention capabilities, customers can choose to add Application Control, Gateway Anti-virus, WebBlocker, spamBlocker and WatchGuard’s context-aware, cloud-based security service, Reputation Enabled Defense.
Also, the WatchGuard XTM 330 takes advantage of cutting-edge innovations from WatchGuard, including the ability to create highly secure virtual private network (VPN) tunnels for Apple iPad, iPhone and other iOS-based devices. This way, small businesses can provide complete protection, even for popular devices that employees bring into the office, the statement said.
Additional networking and VPN features allow for remote access, which is ideal for small businesses with remote or mobile workers. Also, the WatchGuard XTM 330 supports clientless single sign-on, which helps to ensure simple and accurate authentication for user and group-based policies.
Advanced management and logging features provide management with easy to use reports. This gives small businesses new insights as to web and application usage, as well as remediation abilities to enforce business and IT policies. – TradeArabia News Service
