IT Pros in distributed enterprises and SMBs gain new insights into network threats, attacks, malware and mobile security
SEATTLE – May 24, 2016 — WatchGuard® Technologies, a leader in multi-function integrated security appliances, today released WatchGuard Dimension™ 2.1, the latest version of its award-winning data visualization and reporting suite, and Fireware® 11.11, its security-hardened operating system. These releases provide increased visibility across the entire network for distributed enterprises and small and midsize businesses (SMBs). IT professionals can now scan networks for unauthorized devices with WatchGuard's Network Discovery, gain real-time visibility into infected clients with Botnet Detection, identify and audit mobile devices connected to the network with Mobile Security, and take advantage of new reporting and management capabilities in Dimension.
Organizations lacking comprehensive and actionable visibility across their network face greater risk and slower response times for attack mitigation. Additionally, they have difficulty managing everyday network nuisances like downtime and bottlenecks that negatively impact employee productivity.
"As an IT managed services company, we are constantly looking for ways to optimize and perfect monitoring and investigating suspicious traffic in our customers' environments," said Jon Bailey, CEO, Netektives Technology, LLC. "WatchGuard's Network Discovery service is one of the new services that enables us to stay one step ahead of potential breaches with a clear view into network traffic, connected devices and users on the network."
"We talk about visibility as the missing layer of information security, but really, it's more like night vision goggles," said Corey Nachreiner, chief technology officer at WatchGuard. "It allows you to see into areas that were previously just a shadowy void. No matter how good your security may be, the threat landscape will continue to evolve. Since you can't stop every attack, you need to have mechanisms that help you see, analyze and respond to them before it's too late."
