Unveiling of a new security platform built for MSPs at The Shard - Western Europe's tallest building

WatchGuard reached new heights in more ways than one on 24 November when we demonstrated our next evolution of unified cybersecurity to our channel community from over 1,000ft up in the Shard in the centre of London. We were joined by local partners and distributors, while the event was broadcast live to hundreds of partners across northern Europe including the UK, Benelux, Nordics and Baltic regions.

The number one reason organisations fall victim to a ransomware attack is due to the lack of a unified cybersecurity strategy. That’s why our Unified Security Platform is designed to elevate professional cybersecurity delivery to new levels.

At the event, our partners also heard more about the addition of four new endpoint security modules in WatchGuard Cloud: Patch Management, Full Encryption, Advanced Reporting Tool (ART) and  Data Control. This integration further strengthens the Unified Security Platform, giving centralised access to the complete portfolio of WatchGuard endpoint, multi-factor authentication and network security products.

Key features of the new endpoint security modules include:

WatchGuard Patch Management – manages vulnerabilities in operating systems and hundreds of third-party applications on Windows workstations and servers. This provides a reduced attack surface, strengthening preventative capabilities and incident containment. Available as an add-on to WatchGuard EPDR, EDR, and EPP solutions.

WatchGuard Full Encryption – centrally controls and manages full disk and USB drive encryption and key recovery, leveraging BitLocker in Windows systems. Available as an add-on to WatchGuard EPDR, EDR, and EPP solutions.

WatchGuard Advanced Reporting Tool (ART) – provides detailed information into the day-to-day operation of applications, networks, and users. This includes pre-defined queries, dashboards, and alerts on endpoints out of the box. Managers can also create custom queries and alerts based on endpoint telemetry. Available as an add-on to WatchGuard EPDR and EDR solutions.

WatchGuard Data Control – discovers, audits, and monitors unstructured sensitive or personal data on endpoints, from data at rest, data in use, and data in motion. It can also run real-time, free custom searches to find files within specific content. Available as an add-on to WatchGuard EPDR and EDR solutions. 

It was a great day in The Shard giving visitors a great view over London and a vision to the future. For our MSPs, the Unified Security Platform is a true force multiplier, providing comprehensive security, clarity and control, shared knowledge, automation and operational alignment. By reducing friction between security technologies and business processes, our Unified Security Platform delivers market-leading and profitable managed solutions.
