WatchGuard Technologies extends email and web gateway security features
New Delhi, India, October 28, 2013: WatchGuard Technologies, a global player in integrated, multi-function network security platforms, today announced the latest operating system for its email and web-based security appliance, WatchGuard XCS Version 10. With Microsoft Hyper-V support for XCSv, IPv6 support, and outbound anti-spam capabilities, XCS 10 streamlines the implementation and management of content security strategies for small, medium and large enterprises.
Director of product management at WatchGuard Technologies Roger Klorese said, “WatchGuard XCS delivers an effective defense-in-depth platform for email, Web and data loss prevention. The latest upgrade to our operating system is designed to make deployment and management easier for IT security professionals, and deliver new functionality that can help meet today’s challenges around virtualization and IPv6.”
The WatchGuard XCS appliance is one of the top-rated email security and content management appliances on the market today, according to SC Magazine.1 It delivers the industry’s most effective defense-in-depth for email and Web, including powerful data loss prevention. XCS provides protection from email and web-based threats including spam, viruses, compromised websites, blended threats, and network attacks.
XCS also includes new IPv6 support. With the number of IPv6 devices growing and many areas of the world running out of (Asia), or running low on, IPv4 addresses, the move to IPv6 is underway.
According to Gartner, As IPv6 adoption grows, security researchers and attackers will focus more on discovering IPv6 vulnerabilities. Strong vulnerability management processes will be critical to a successful IPv4 to IPv6 migration. XCS allows organizations to apply the same rich security controls to their email when migrating to IPv6 or mixed-addressing environments.
Furthermore, with the proliferation of BYOD and guest network access, IT organizations can no longer count on attacks coming only from outside the business. To help combat this problem, WatchGuard XCS 10 now includes out-bound anti-spam controls to clean outbound email and help preserve corporate reputation.
XCS Version 10 is a free upgrade available to all users of the XCS hardware and XCSv virtual appliances with LiveSecurity subscriptions.
