WatchGuard Introduces Multifactor Authentication Product: Page 2 of 2

Designed specifically for SMBs in search of affordable, easy-to-use security tools, AuthPoint is WatchGuard’s first entirely software-based solution, and utilizes the new WatchGuard Cloud management console. By Rich Freeman

AuthPoint is based on technology WatchGuard acquired through its August 2017 purchase of authentication vendor Datablink Inc., of McLean, Va.

WatchGuard competitor SonicWall is branching out from security hardware to software and cloud-based solutions as well, including the Capture Client endpoint protection system, the Capture ATP sandbox service, and the recently introduced Cloud App Security offering, which provides real-time visibility into compliance and privacy risks associated with an end user’s cloud-based solutions.

Symantec Corp., Duo Security Inc., and Kaseya Ltd. are among numerous existing players in the MFA market.
