WatchGuard Technologies Brings Big Data Visibility Tools to Network Security

Zero-install, cloud-ready WatchGuard Dimension instantly distills ‘oceans of security data’ into key insights and trends

WatchGuard® Technologies, a global leader in integrated, multi-function network security platforms, announced a zero-install, public and private cloud-ready network security visibility solution. WatchGuard Dimension will come standard with the company’s flagship Unified Threat Management (UTM) platform and provides a suite of visibility and reporting tools that instantly isolates and distills actionable security issues and trends, speeding network professionals’ ability to set meaningful security policies.

WatchGuard Dimension offers users a menu of visibility and reporting options to present the information in the way they find most intuitive:

  • Executive Dashboard: This high-level view of network activity shows top trends, top clients, and correlated views of top users and applications. With just a click, users can drill all the way down to individual log data, as needed.
  • Summary Reporting: With the Reporting function, users can choose from more than 70 comprehensive reports, with both summary and detail options tailored for C-level executives, IT directors, compliance officers and small business owners. Summary report options include specific HIPAA and PCI compliance reports, plus the ability to pre-schedule reports for delivery to key stakeholders in a user’s organization.
  • Hierarchical TreeMap: WatchGuard Dimension’s TreeMap, called FireWatch, filters traffic in a way that instantly brings your eye to the most critical information on active users and connections, as well as who and what is using the most bandwidth. The TreeMap view also provides options to pivot, drill-down and filter.
  • Global ThreatMap: ThreatMap features multiple, interactive configurable views on a world map, making it possible to have real-time views of threats per region. That information is critical to helping users identify and fine-tune defenses against those attacks.

WatchGuard Dimension is now available with WatchGuard’s 11.8 launch of its XTM security platform. Other major highlights include the addition of WatchGuard Data Loss Prevention to the platform, an updated Web User Interface compatible with mobile devices, and tremendous new flexibility in the configuration of VPNs in today’s more complex network environments.
