SAN FRANCISCO (RSA) – February 27, 2012 - Continuing its ownership of the small and midsize market, WatchGuard® Technologies, a global leader in business security solutions, today added to its SMB and branch office offerings with two new unified threat management (UTM) appliances – the WatchGuard XTM 25 and XTM 26. Ideal for small businesses, wireless hotspots and branch offices, the WatchGuard XTM 25 and 26 appliances raise the standard for network security price and performance. Protection is stronger than ever, with HTTPS inspection, VoIP support, and options for Application Control and all other WatchGuard security services (WebBlocker, spamBlocker, Gateway Antivirus, Intrusion Prevention Service, Reputation Enabled Defense, and LiveSecurity Service).
"Small businesses need more from their firewall today than ever before," said Tim Helming, Director of Product Management at WatchGuard Technologies. "The new WatchGuard XTM 25 and 26 UTM appliances give small businesses enterprise-class protection and advanced business productivity features that are typically seen in appliances that cost thousands of dollars more."
Helming concludes, "Many small businesses face the same challenges as large organizations – how to keep data, applications and their network safe. With WatchGuard, it doesn't matter if your business has 10 or 10,000 employees – they all get the same levels of advanced, next-generation threat protection at price points that simply can't be beat."
