Sydney – Jan 15, 2013 - WatchGuard® Technologies, a global leader in manageable business security solutions, today released Fireware XTM 11.7; a software update for its Extensible Threat Management (XTM) suite of network security products. As many businesses continue to struggle with bring your own device (BYOD) complexities, the 11.7 upgrade boasts an enhanced feature set that bolsters the XTM's superior management capabilities while increasing Unified Threat Management (UTM) performance by up to 50 percent. The majority of XTM appliances are now able to access the update for no additional cost with WatchGuard's LiveSecurity subscription.
Among its list of features, Fireware XTM 11.7 provides an updated URL filtering database from best-in-class strategic partner, Websense. Other stand-out features include Android and iOS VPN applications, support for IPV6 and L2TP VPN. Policy grouping has also been added, which now allows administrators to create custom tags and filters for firewall policies to further simplify management and maintenance in larger environments.
"These updates will help our XTM customers boost their network security, connectivity and reliability without adding a layer of complexity in today's already intricate BYOD environments," said Roger Klorese, Director of Product Management at WatchGuard Technologies. "With manageability in mind, we are always looking for new ways to meet the needs of our customers and provide the highest level of network protection available in the market."
This update adds to a growing list of recent enhancement to WatchGuard's XTM products, which also includes RapidDeploy, a new cloud-based configuration utility that eliminates the need for IT security professionals to pre-configure devices or travel to the deployment site for installation. The new feature is designed to help security service providers speed up deployment while controlling costs and boosting profitability.
