Info Security Products Guide Names WatchGuard Winner of the 2009 Tomorrow's Technology Today Award

WatchGuard Wins Category of "Security Solution for Education"

SAN FRANCISCO (RSA) – April 20, 2009. WatchGuard® Technologies, a global leader in extensible network security and connectivity solutions, today announced that Info Security Products Guide, the industry's leading publication on security-related products and technologies named WatchGuard Technologies the winner of the 2009 Tomorrow's Technology Today Award – Security Solution for Education. This prestigious award recognizes security vendors with advanced, ground-breaking technologies and solutions that are helping set the bar higher for others in all areas of information security. The WatchGuard family of UTM (unified threat management) appliances was selected based on its "unparalleled network security against a myriad of threats" for the education market.

"The education market is rife with all sorts of network threats designed to get sensitive data, such as student social security numbers or other identity-based data, such as names, addresses, and the like," said Tim Helming, director of product management at WatchGuard Technologies. "It is an honor to be recognized for WatchGuard's ability to protect schools, their networks and most importantly, safeguard their students' information."

WatchGuard - Unparalleled Network Security Against a Myriad of Threats
As stated in Info Security Products Guide, "School districts need application-based proxy inspection, branch office and mobile user VPN capabilities, and zero-day attack prevention within a budget to deliver a much higher level of security than systems that rely solely on signature analysis for protection."

The WatchGuard family of UTM appliances provides "unparalleled network security against a myriad of threats." Recent third-party tests validate WatchGuard's industry lead at stopping nearly 99 percent of network attacks and threats. Because of WatchGuard's advanced proxy technology and security architecture, schools and school districts can rest assured knowing that their mission critical data is highly secure from outside attacks.

WatchGuard offers an online knowledge base, including a series of case studies and information resources that demonstrate how schools utilize WatchGuard UTM solutions in maintaining high security.
