WatchGuard Adds Content Security to Virtualization Platform

Award-Winning Line of Web Content, DLP and Messaging Security Appliances to Go Virtual

WatchGuard® Technologies, a global leader in business security solutions, announced that it is expanding its virtualization offerings to soon include its award-winning line of extensible content security (XCS) appliances.  Designed for VMware virtualized environments, the new WatchGuard XCSv series of appliances provide unparalleled web content, data loss prevention (DLP), email and messaging security.

“There are many reasons and benefits for why businesses, large and small, are turning to virtualized IT solutions,” said Roger Klorese, Director of Product Management at WatchGuard Technologies.  “WatchGuard has already taken the lead in virtualizing its firewalls, and now the company moves security forward by expanding its virtualized offerings to soon include the full array of XCS appliances.”

WatchGuard XCSv Four editions of XCSv will soon be available to meet the needs of small, midsize and large-scale distributed environments.  These virtual versions provide the same level of web content, DLP, email and messaging security offered by WatchGuard XCS hardware appliances, including advanced anti-spam and malware protection, zero-hour threat outbreak response and easy to use management and reporting features.

Because multiple instances of XCSv can run on a single vSphere hypervisor, the WatchGuard virtual appliance is ideal for managed security services providers (MSSPs), hosting providers, and larger IT organizations who wish to run separate logical XCS web security and content gateways on the same host system.
