WatchGuard Technologies, a global provider of business security solutions, has unveiled the first automation configuration solution for unified threat management (UTM) products at GITEX TECHNOLOGY WEEK 2012.

“The Middle East market has been one of WatchGuard’s fastest growing segments over the last years, and GITEX has been instrumental in this growth. We have expanded our distribution base and have added many solid channel partners. Only in Q1 and Q2 of 2012 we have seen our revenue growing by 30 per cent and we are very optimistic and expecting the growth to continue and accelerate in 2013. This is a result of our commitment to the market but also a reflection of the increased awareness of the importance of preventing data loss and the potential dangers posed by security lapses within the ME business community”, says Joe Wang, CEO and president at WatchGuard.

Wang  said WatchGuard is showcasing at GITEX, for the first time in the Middle East, the New WatchGuard XTM 5 series network security appliances for the unified threat management (UTM) market. As next-generation UTMs, the New WatchGuard XTM 5 series sports the fastest throughput in its price class without sacrificing security efficacy, manageability and ease of use and gives mid-size businesses an unparalleled solution to block the latest web threats, as well as the ability to improve employee productivity.

“WatchGuard has also introduced to the Middle East market its entire line of content and network security products as virtualised solutions,” he said. “This will give WatchGuard customers and channel partners an unparalleled offering of both hardware and virtual security solutions to best meet their business needs.”
