It will also release the Fireware XTM 11.7, a software update for its XTM suite of network security products, on top of the recent expansion of its unified threat management (UTM) portfolio. The XTM developments are intended to keep organisations protected against information security risks, and will be available in the Middle East from March 30th.
“Historically, mediocre UTM performance has kept adoption limited to small and midsized businesses,” said Haroon Iqbal, Sales Manager, MEA, 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.
Fireware XTM 11.7 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 XTM models feature dynamic routing, wide area network (WAN) failover, server load balancing, and link aggregation.
The new WatchGuard XTM 800, 1500, and 2500 series appliances feature the latest Intel Xeon multicore CPUs and QuickAssist technologies.
