WatchGuard Technologies has announced the availability of its latest Extensible Content Security (XCS) solutions for small and mid-sized businesses. The new XCS 280 and XCS 580 models offer the same trusted content protection but with 50% better price/performance over previous models.
Available immediately, the XCS 280 and XCS 580 provide small and medium-sized businesses with a centralised management dashboard, making it easier to manage security options and create reports. In addition, customers get instant access to WatchGuard LiveSecurity Plus that provides 24/7 web or phone-based support services.
WatchGuard XCS 280 and 580 appliances are optimised for ease-of-use for businesses that may not have a dedicated IT security team. The Data Loss Prevention Wizard, ReputationAuthority and Web Security subscriptions all make it easier for customers with limited IT resources to deploy and maintain an enterprise-class content security solution at an affordable price point.
“With increased security threats targeting small and medium-sized business, it is essential for business owners to keep their important and sensitive information safe,” said Roger Klorese, WatchGuard’s Director of Product Management. “The WatchGuard XCS solution provides the web and email content security, management and reporting features that SMBs need to maintain the highest level of security and defend against attacks.”
WatchGuard offers five XCS models to provide organisations of all sizes with a suite of content security functionality, including email security, web security and data loss prevention. These solutions provide the most effective defence from email and web-based threats, including spam, viruses, malware, URL filtering, blended threats, spyware and network attacks, and block 98 percent of threats and spam at the network perimeter.
