WatchGuard XCS 880 to address email & web-based content security needs of large enterprises

29th August 2013 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

New Delhi, India, August 29, 2013: WatchGuard Technologies, a player in integrated security platforms, today launched the WatchGuard XCS 880, which is designed to meet the demanding email and web-based content security needs of large enterprises. Delivering 20 percent more processing power, twice the email throughput per dollar, and consuming less than half the energy of previous models, the XCS 880 protects against inbound threats such as virus, blended threats and network attacks, while helping control outbound information to prevent data loss. The XCS 880 will replace the XCS 770R and the XCS 970.

Despite the growth in other communications channels, email remains the foundation of corporate communications. “The prevailing use of email has made it a preferred conduit of targeted attacks and a significant, potential source of data loss or compliance issues,” according to Gartneri. To help meet the growing challenges around email and other web-based content, the XCS 880 leverages the latest generation of processor technology from Intel. This allows the appliance to deliver anti-spam/virus/malware capabilities, combined with content filtering, data loss protection, encryption, web filtering and more, and remain at peak performance levels.

Director of product management at WatchGuard Roger Klorese, said, ”Today’s enterprises deploy advanced messaging networks that move massive amounts of data through email and across the Internet into the corporate network. To keep suspect information out and sensitive information in requires a sophisticated content security strategy. The XCS 880 is designed to simplify this core capability – by giving organizations an email security, privacy and compliance solution with best-in-class technology – while delivering enhanced performance, dramatic power reduction, and redundant power supplies.”

By reducing the watt-hours used by more than half, WatchGuard XCS 880 provides businesses with an efficient content security platform that delivers savings not only in power costs but in cooling as well. And thanks to improvements in the processor and data storage, the device is smaller and lighter (with a weight reduction of 18 lbs.), allowing businesses to reduce their expenditures in costly rack space. WatchGuard has improved reliability over the XCS 770R by adding a redundant power supply that eliminates a potential source of failure and ensures data remains secure in the event of a power interruption. Like the models it replaces, the XCS 880 uses RAID technology to protect data in the event of disk failure.

WatchGuard XCS 880 is available now for purchase and trade-up, and includes customizable reporting features to help IT with audit requests and compliance requirements, as well as WatchGuard’s LiveSecurity PLUS customer support and software update services.
