XTM Appliances From WatchGuard Provide Firewall Protection for Mid Sized companiestest

WatchGuard Technologies : 03 March, 2010  (New Product)
Comprehensive network and data security in one appliance enables small and medium sized companies to protect their networks and meet compliance requirements in one appliance with the XTM Firewall from WatchGuard
WatchGuard Technologies has unveiled its new WatchGuard XTM multifunction security appliances that provide comprehensive network, application and data security. The XTM 5 Series is aimed at mid-market enterprise organisations with up to 1,500 users while the XTM 2 Series is ideal for small businesses and branch offices with up to 50 people. The new appliances will be launched at the RSA and CeBIT (Stand D03 Hall11) shows this week.

"Businesses of all sizes are increasingly under attack from hackers, malware and botnets, while regulatory compliance is forcing them to recalibrate and recalculate Risk Management practices," said Tim Helming, Director of Product Management, WatchGuard Technologies. "The new WatchGuard XTM appliances offers powerful enterprise class multifunction protection for growing businesses, branch offices and mid-tier organizations that are flexible, scalable and affordable."

The XTM 2 and 5 Series provide defence-in-depth protection, which combines deep packet inspection, stateful packet inspection and proxy technologies for full application layer content inspection and protection against threats that can bypass other firewalls.

Based on the high-security Fireware XTM operating system, the XTM appliances are also capable of blocking Skype and other high risk IM, file sharing and chat, while also eliminating threats from unauthorized websites, attacks buried in HTTPS packets and next generation threats, such as VoIP or unified communication hacks.

For today's mobile and remote workers, the XTM Series also offer integrated high performance SSL VPN connectivity. WAN and VPN failover increase performance, redundancy and reliability, while multiple VPN choices allow for greater flexibility and use scenarios, such as for remote offices or temporary locations. Free interactive, real-time monitoring and reporting tools give an unprecedented view into network security activity and support remote management.

For demanding mid-tier organisations, the WatchGuard XTM 5 Series provides fast 2.3 Gbps firewall throughput, with an unmatched 800 Mbps throughput with all security features activated including gateway antivirus, IPS/IDS, web-blocking and URL filtering.

Advanced features make it an ideal solution for complex network environments with clustering, active-active high availability with load balancing for maximum uptime.

"These latest appliances round-out a complete platform of multifunction firewalls, spanning small businesses with the XTM 2 Series (wired or wireless), all the way up to enterprise and data centre environments with the new XTM 8 Series and XTM 10 Series," said Vinod Chamdal, UK sales manager at WatchGuard. "With XTM appliances, customers can choose which protection features they want in one appliance for their business - it's not an 'all or nothing' proposition. The key is, now they have a choice to optimize network, application and data security with the right set of XTM appliances."
