XCS appliances ensure the safety and privacy of inbound and outbound network traffic
Recommended for mid-size to large enterprises, governments, and ISPs including Global 2000 and Fortune 500 organizations
WatchGuard® Extensible Content Security (XCS) appliances deliver stringent security and privacy for inbound and outbound email. Bundle the XCS with a Web Security subscription and have comprehensive control over email and web traffic for powerful, unified protection.
Why buy an XCS solution? With an XCS email and web security solution your business has:
- efficient, consolidated content security and threat prevention across multiple protocols
- total visibility into and control of all email and web traffic
- tools and information needed to demonstrate compliance
- significant reduction in the costs and administrative burdens of running multiple point solutions
This adds up to solid protection that aligns with industry regulations, a low total cost of ownership, with more time to focus on other IT priorities.
ReputationAuthority, a key “in the cloud” component of XCS, blocks up to 98% of unwanted email at the perimeter, dramatically optimizing bandwidth and preventing threats from entering your network. Anti-Spam Engine examines sender information and content, including images, attachments, and embedded URLs. It automatically conducts contextual analysis of message traffic for a categorized and weighted score, resulting in highly intelligent protection. Quarantine for Spam and Suspect Emails directs unwanted spam to a local quarantine server, allowing end users to manage their quarantined messages, safe lists, and block lists from an easy-to-use, web-based interface.
VIRUS, SPYWARE, AND MALWARE PROTECTION
Zero-Hour Threat Outbreak Response closes the window of vulnerability between when an attack launches and when scanning filter updates are developed and distributed. Advanced Content Filtering and Malware Prevention scans inbound and outbound email for malicious content delivered by blended threats.
DATA LOSS PREVENTION FOR PRIVACY & COMPLIANCE
Transparent Remediation capabilities automatically block, quarantine, reroute, blind copy, encrypt, or allow messages based on user-configurable policies, to prevent data leakage. Pre-Defined Compliance Dictionaries for GLB, HIPAA, PCI and other regulations are customizable, based on policy requirements for real-time data loss prevention and specific industry regulations. Seamless Email Encryption, available as an add-on feature for the XCS platform, secures confidential messages for delivery to any recipient without the need for a dedicated server, avoiding the costs associated with most encryption technology. E-Profiling Data Discovery & Classification allows you to classify types of sensitive data files, thereby training the system on what to look for and the actions to take when such data is discovered in outbound communications. Centralized Data Loss Policy Management applies a single policy across multiple protocols to protect data-in-motion from loss and policy violations.
RELIABLE ALWAYS-ON EMAIL SECURITY
Dynamic On-Demand Clustering allows you to replicate configuration settings and messaging queues across multiple systems in minutes, adding redundancy and scalability to maximize uptime. Message-Level Redundancy ensures no communication is ever lost and email security is always up and running.
EASILY EXTEND THIS PROTECTION TO YOUR WEB TRAFFIC WITH A WEB SECURITY SUBSCRIPTION
Acceptable Use and Application Controls allow you to centrally manage and restrict Internet and application usage with granular policies for users and groups. Reduces web-based liabilities and exposure to threats. URL Filtering & Categorization dynamically analyzes and blocks access to websites based on content and policies. Provides immediate and accurate network defense against malicious and inappropriate websites. Dynamic Inspection performs real-time content examination and analysis of each and every web page as it enters the network to determine risk levels and dynamically blocks individual pages or even parts of a page. Web Traffic Enhancements including web caching, enhanced HTTP scanning, large file downloads, and streaming media support result in reduced bandwidth consumption, server loads, and latency for web traffic.
