WatchGuard has announced the availability of seven new models in its line of Extensible Threat Management (XTM) products. As businesses and enterprises of all sizes consider the increased severity and complexity of cyber threats, WatchGuard’s new XTM hardware incorporates industry-leading technology to provide robust, manageable, and cost-effective network security that eliminates the need to choose between a secure IT infrastructure and a high performing business.

 

With the new releases, WatchGuard is expanding its unified threat management (UTM) offering in response to growing demand for high performing, integrated security solutions from large enterprise customers. The XTM 1520, 1525 and 2520 models provide the speed, security and features required by headquarters, data centers and managed security services. The enterprise suite of XTM appliances provides customers with the highest level of essential security tools and sophisticated administrative controls, while maintaining the ease of management that WatchGuard is known for.

“Historically, mediocre UTM performance has kept adoption limited to small and mid-sized businesses,” said Roger Klorese, director of product management at WatchGuard Technologies. “Since re-architecting our business three years ago, WatchGuard’s relentless focus on delivering high-end UTM performance means we can now provide customers of any size with the highest level of protection in one speedy and scalable box. Our ‘faster than market’ growth in the enterprise space tells us we’ve struck a chord.”

In addition to the new enterprise-class XTM models, WatchGuard is also providing strong performance gains in the XTM 800 series for small and medium sized businesses. The new WatchGuard XTM 800, 1500, and 2500 series appliances feature the latest Intel Xeon™ multicore CPUs and QuickAssist™ technologies, to achieve a level of performance unmatched by competing options. The new XTM models also feature dynamic routing, wide area network (WAN) failover, server load balancing, and link aggregation. The included security services use best-in-class technology from industry leaders like Websense, AVG, and Broadweb to provide in-depth defense against modern malware and blended security threats.

The new XTM models feature Fireware XTM 11.7, a recent software update from WatchGuard that offers an enhanced URL filtering database from strategic partner Websense, VPN applications for Android and iOS devices, support for IPV6 and L2TP VPN, and improved policy grouping. The new appliances are also equipped with WatchGuard’s configuration utility, RapidDeploy, which allows customers to preconfigure XTM appliances for branch offices, eliminating the need for IT security professionals to travel to the deployment site for installation.
