WatchGuard Launches New Small Business Security Appliance
WatchGuard XTM 330 Provides Next-Generation Security for Small Businesses
SEATTLE, -- WatchGuard® Technologies, a global leader in business security solutions, today announced the launch of a new small business security appliance, the WatchGuard XTM 330. Ideal for businesses with 30 to 50 users, the WatchGuard XTM 330 appliance provides advanced network protection in an all-in-one rack-mount gateway security appliance.
"Small businesses are increasingly becoming targets of hackers and sophisticated cyber attacks," said Tim Helming, Director of Product Management at WatchGuard Technologies. "Easy to use and easy to manage, the WatchGuard XTM 330 is the ideal solution for small organizations. Now businesses with 50 employees can have the same type of security and protection that Fortune 1000 enterprises, financial institutions and government agencies use to keep out spyware, malware and other web threats."
WatchGuard XTM 330 - Feature Rich Protection for Value-Conscious Customers
The WatchGuard XTM 330 security appliance provides complete network security protection against today's threats. The XTM 330 sports the latest security services from WatchGuard to meet any number of business needs. In addition to next-generation firewall and intrusion prevention capabilities, customers can choose to add Application Control, Gateway Anti-virus, WebBlocker, spamBlocker and WatchGuard's context-aware, cloud-based security service, Reputation Enabled Defense.
Also, the WatchGuard XTM 330 takes advantage of cutting-edge innovations from WatchGuard, including the ability to create highly secure virtual private network (VPN) tunnels for Apple iPad, iPhone and other iOS-based devices. This way, small businesses can provide complete protection, even for popular devices that employees bring into the office.
Additional networking and VPN features allow for remote access, which is ideal for small businesses with remote or mobile workers. Also, the WatchGuard XTM 330 supports clientless single sign-on, which helps to ensure simple and accurate authentication for user and group-based policies.
Advanced management and logging features provide management with easy to use reports. This gives small businesses new insights as to web and application usage, as well as remediation abilities to enforce business and IT policies.
Because of the rich reporting and management features, the WatchGuard XTM 330 also makes for an ideal customer premise equipment (CPE) solution for managed security service providers (MSSPs).
Helming concludes, "No other security appliance, UTM or next-generation firewall offers as much capability and firewall throughput in this price class than the WatchGuard XTM 330. For small businesses, this is a redefining moment to combat cyber-attacks and Internet criminals."
