WatchGuard Introduces Data Loss Prevention Solution for Unified Threat Management

One-Click Configuration Simplifies Compliance with Global Regulatory Standards. Library of more than 200 predefined, multi-country rules proactively protect personal, financial and healthcare data.

WatchGuard® Technologies, a global leader in business security solutions, introduced a Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solution for its Unified Threat Management (UTM) platform that simplifies compliance with leading regulatory standards in key markets worldwide. Users can select from a pre-configured library of more than 200 rules that monitor multiple file types, standards and sensitive data. This includes national identification numbers and other Personally Identifiable Information (PII), and can enable complex checks for HIPAA and PCI with a single click. This allows businesses to instantly protect data and prevent costly regulatory violations, which can top $5.4 million per breachi.

In recent research conducted by WatchGuard, 65 percent of companies reportediii still not having a Data Loss Prevention solution in place, despite the potential for organizations to be penalized millions of dollars for losing sensitive data.

“In a global study of industry network professionals, of those that don’t have a DLP system in place, 35 percentiv were stymied by the cost of DLP solutions,” said Roger Klorese, director of product management at WatchGuard. “The positive news for IT professionals is that by choosing a DLP solution that’s integrated with UTM, companies can simplify their data protection, while reducing their total cost of ownership for network security by nearly halfv. Plus, WatchGuard’s UTM platform is 3.5 times faster than similarly priced competing products, so customers can be confident that if they add DLP to their UTM solution set, network performance will not be impacted.”

More detailed information can be found on the WatchGuard Data Loss Prevention product page or on the company’s blog. The product will be available in September.
