5th August 2013 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

New Delhi, India, August 5, 2013:  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 Gartner 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.

Dave R. Taylor, Vice president of corporate strategy at WatchGuard, said, ”We’ve never been more excited about the market opportunity Unified Threat Management presents to our customers, our company and our investors, and are honored to again be positioned in the leaders quadrant. WatchGuard is focused on delivering a best-of-breed experience to our customers. This report recognizes the emphasis we continually place on ensuring customer success.”

Gartner 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.
