Ushers in High Security Solutions to Protect Businesses Using Unified Communications

SEATTLE – April 8, 2011 WatchGuard® Technologies, a global leader of business security solutions, today announced it will provide next-generation firewall appliances for businesses using Mitel (NASDAQ: MITL) unified communications (UC) solutions. By doing so, businesses gain superior Voice over IP (VoIP) protection for their award-winning Mitel UC solutions, as well as their corporate networks, applications and data.

"WatchGuard is pleased to be working with Mitel by offering its extensible threat management (XTM) solutions to the market," said Tim Helming, Director of Product Management at WatchGuard Technologies. "As the first vendor to offer comprehensive SIP and H.323 proxies, WatchGuard is in a unique position to best protect today's unified communications environments."

All WatchGuard XTM security appliances provide unparalleled VoIP protection, which is critical in securing business UC environments. Specifically by having SIP and H.323 proxy protection, WatchGuard XTM appliances protect against a multitude of VoIP threats, including denial of service attacks, spam over Internet telephony (SPIT), voice service theft, registration hijacking, eavesdropping, directory harvesting, voice phishing (vishing) and more.

"Providing best in class security for business communications is important," said Paul Blide, vice-president Mitel DataNet CommSource. "Working with firewall appliance vendors like WatchGuard is a logical choice because their systems offer our customers the highest degree of performance, flexibility, reliability and most importantly protection for their business."
