WatchGuard Technologies brings Big Data visibility tools to network security

9th October 2013 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

New Delhi, India, October 9, 2013: WatchGuard Technologies, a global player in integrated, multi-function network security platforms, today launched 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.

Dave R. Taylor, Vice president of corporate and product strategy at WatchGuard Technologies, said, ”Around the world, network security pros tell us they are drowning in logs of data and find it time consuming – or nearly impossible – to identify key issues on their networks and make proper policy decisions. In a recent report from the SANS Institute, only 10 percent of respondents felt confident in their organizations ability to analyze large data sets for security trends, even though 77 percent are collecting logs and monitoring data from systems and security devices. WatchGuard Dimension solves this challenge by instantly turning raw network data into actionable security intelligence in the big data visualization style today’s users have come to expect.”

  •        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.
