WatchGuard Notes Worst Offending Security Reputations

SEATTLE (November 23, 2010) – WatchGuard Technologies

Highlights / News Facts:

Online threats directly relate to IP Reputations – WatchGuard security analysts see increasing complexity and expanding globalization of IT threats. In particular, threat developers are leveraging the web’s dynamic nature to foster and distribute new threat from around the world.

Because of this, WatchGuard recommends businesses adopt "reputation" services as part of their multilayered security posture. Reputation services leverage in-the-cloud systems that aggregate data from multiple feeds, including industry-leading anti-virus engines, for real-time protection against web threats. By utilizing reputation services, businesses can mitigate threats before they ever hit their network.

The following are recent data points provided by WatchGuard ReputationAuthority that illustrate what a WatchGuard Reputation Enabled Defense stops:
