WatchGuard® Technologies, Inc. is a global leader in network security, providing best-in-class Unified Threat Management, Next Generation Firewall, secure Wi-Fi, and network intelligence products and services to more than 75,000 customers worldwide. The company's mission is to make enterprise-grade security accessible to companies of all types and sizes through simplicity, making WatchGuard an ideal solution for Distributed Enterprises and SMBs.
Recognizing an unmet need for a security solution that addresses the rapidly evolving threat landscape, WatchGuard architected its high-throughput, highly scalable, and flexible Fireware® operating system to form the backbone of its products. This platform yields dramatically higher performance at a much lower cost than competitors in environments where multiple security engines are enabled.
WatchGuard differentiates itself from competitors through:
- Scalability with hardware advances: WatchGuard's use of industry-standard hardware ensures that its product performance scales with processor advances from Intel and Freescale.
- Best-of-breed technology: WatchGuard's modular architecture is based on its Fireware operating system, which runs full versions of the industry's leading third-party scanning engines.
- Segment-leading manageability: WatchGuard's policy-based management console provides a single interface to easily configure and control all security engines, with the flexibility to manage network security from anywhere (such as headquarters to branch locations), without having to install management software.
- Award-winning visibility: The award-winning WatchGuard Dimension™ visibility tool distills oceans of security data into key trends and critical events to quickly and effectively identify potential threats and productivity issues. Operating from any public or private cloud, Dimension requires no installation and runs from any browser.
