WatchGuard User Anonymization

WatchGuard User Anonymization & the EU General Data Protection Regulation

The European Union (EU) is setting precedents with the most stringent data and privacy protection regulations in the world with the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation framework, or GDPR. WatchGuard’s Dimension™ visibility platform delivers a new User Anonymization feature that takes an EU organization’s capability to be in compliance with the GDPR regulation framework to the next level. The feature masks personally identifiable information (PII), works very simply, is easily accessible and configurable, and was designed with GDPR compliance and the reality of insider threats in mind.
