WatchGuard Unveils Enhanced Managed Security Services Program

'Security as a Service' Now Available through WatchGuard Partners

SEATTLE, Dec. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- WatchGuard® Technologies, a global leader of business security solutions, today launched the WatchGuard Managed Security Services Program (MSSP) to partners worldwide. This program allows businesses to reduce IT operation costs while increasing network, application and data protection.

"To survive in this economic climate, businesses are embracing low cost, highly dynamic service offerings, which includes security as a service," said Mark Romano, Director of Global Channel Marketing at WatchGuard Technologies. "For channel partners, the WatchGuard Managed Security Services Program offers an unparalleled package of high performance, yet easy to manage security services in a way that is extremely profitable and cost effective for both channel partners and their customers."

At the center of the WatchGuard Managed Security Services Program are new remote management security features integrated into WatchGuard's new Fireware XTM-based multifunction security appliances. With it, WatchGuard partners can proactively manage, monitor and mitigate security risks for thousands of customers regardless of their location.

Additionally, WatchGuard security services can be dynamically changed to meet most any business need or environment. For example, WatchGuard MSSP channel partners can provide any combination of advanced firewall, intrusion prevention, secure virtual private networking for remote workers, web blocking and URL filtering services, spam protection, anti-virus, and more. This builds a solid foundation for partners to build upon and provide additional services, such as event monitoring, penetration testing, compliance management for PCI DSS, HIPAA, Sarbanes Oxley or other security services.

Furthermore, WatchGuard makes becoming an MSSP easy and affordable. With WatchGuard financing, U.S. channel partners can defer solution costs over time, which allows them to provide managed services immediately to their customers without having to incur substantial upfront capital costs.

Romano concludes, "As businesses turn to cloud computing and service-based models to reduce operation costs, it only makes sense for WatchGuard partners around the world to be ready and able to provide the next 'big thing' in security - high performance managed security services. As 2010 approaches, WatchGuard partners will be well positioned to take advantage of today's changing IT and business environment."
