Real Security for a Virtualized World

Organizations of all sizes are turning to virtualization to reduce costs and increase the efficiency, availability, and flexibility of their IT resources. But virtualization comes at a cost. Virtual environments are complex to manage and vulnerable to security threats. IT must be prepared.

WatchGuard XTMv brings best-of-breed network security to the world of virtualization. With real-time monitoring, multi-WAN support and scalable solutions to fit any sized business, your virtual environments can be just as secure as your physical one.
