USB based UTM for 3G networks

WatchGuard Technologies : 24 September, 2009  (New Product)
WatchGuard has added 3G wireless connectivity to its UTM appliances with the launch of the 3G Extend USB
WatchGuard Technologies, a global supplier of extensible network security and connectivity solutions, has launched the WatchGuard 3G Extend USB, a new modular device that complements and extends the capabilities of its award-winning family of Unified Threat Management (UTM) network security appliances.

The WatchGuard 3G Extend USB is designed for businesses that need high-speed wide area (WAN) connectivity where hard-wired broadband is too expensive or simply unavailable. Examples of this include remote and temporary office sites, stand-alone retail outlets, kiosks, ATMs and mobile assets, such as police vehicles, trains and long-haul trucks. With it, businesses gain highly secure, high-speed Internet access, which can be used for primary network connectivity, WAN failover or 3G wireless data backhaul.

"No other security offering provides the depth of 3G network support than the WatchGuard 3G Extend USB," said Tim Helming, Director of Product Management at WatchGuard Technologies. "The WatchGuard 3G Extend USB embodies our vision of extensible security. With it, customers gain the freedom to choose their service provider and the flexibility to deploy high security to any location where there is cellular data service."

The WatchGuard 3G Extend USB acts as a true L2TP 3G wireless bridge to bring Internet connectivity to WatchGuard UTM network security appliances. Because it supports a multitude of cellular radio modems from over 2,000 ISPs, customers around the world can choose among a vast array of mobile service provider options to best meet their location, service requirements and budget needs.

Because the WatchGuard 3G Extend USB provides both primary and failover 3G connectivity to any WatchGuard security appliance, businesses gain a highly secure and faster WAN failover alternative than POTS (Plain Old Telephone System). Additionally, because of its modular design there are no single points of failure, unlike other UTM appliances that integrate limited cellular wireless options for backhaul and connectivity.

The modular design of the WatchGuard 3G Extend USB also gives businesses greater flexibility and scalability in deployment schemes. For example, the device can be easily moved or transferred among other WatchGuard appliances, thus giving businesses a superior total cost of ownership model and investment protection for future upgrade paths.

Designed for a global audience and an infinite number of deployment scenarios, the WatchGuard 3G Extend USB supports most major CDMA, EDGE, EVDO, GPRS/UMTS and HSDPA cellular high-speed radio cards. Setting up and managing the WatchGuard 3G Extend USB is fast and easy and requires no additional software or drivers for seamless connectivity with WatchGuard appliances.
