"Hackers, viruses and malware are no longer enterprise problems," said Mark Romano, Director of Field Marketing at WatchGuard Technologies. "Small to medium sized businesses are the most vulnerable to next generation threats. Because of this, we created the WatchGuard Summer Security Sale as a way to help SMBs stay ahead of the latest hacks, attacks and malware threats."
