WatchGuard Recognized as a Leader in Gartner’s 2013 Magic Quadrant for Unified Threat Management

Leading UTM vendors simplify deployment of new features and emphasize business needs

WatchGuard® Technologies, a global leader in business security solutions, today announced that it has been named a “Leader” in Gartner’s 2013 Magic Quadrant for Unified Threat Management (UTM).*

According to the report, “The Leaders quadrant contains vendors at the forefront of making and selling UTM products that are built for midsize business requirements. The requirements necessary for leadership include a wide range of models to cover midsize business use cases, support for multiple features, and a management and reporting capability that’s designed for ease of use.” This recognition follows a recent independent performance test from Miercom that confirmed WatchGuard’s UTM offering (XTM 850) is nearly 3.5 times faster than competitive solutions, when all standard UTM features are enabled.

The report also notes that vendors in the leaders quadrant “also have a good track record of avoiding vulnerabilities in their security products. Common characteristics include reliability, consistent throughput, and a product that’s intuitive to manage and administer.” Gartner notes that the UTM industry continues to grow; fueled by refreshes of first-generation technologies and SMB growth in emerging markets.

WatchGuard’s family of UTM security appliances offers best-of-breed security tools combined with industry-leading performance. Additionally, with flexible and centralized management tools and web UI, businesses of all sizes can quickly and easily deploy WatchGuard appliances and monitor their networks.
