WatchGuard Technologies Threat Detection And Response
WatchGuard Technologies in January brought together its network and endpoint security portfolios with the launch of a new Threat Detection and Response offering. The cloud-based service adds threat detection capabilities on the endpoint, which connect back into the network for remediation. The offering includes ThreatSync, which combines feeds from the Seattle-based company's Firebox appliances, endpoint sensors and threat intelligence feeds for threat detection and policy enforcement. WatchGuard CTO Corey Nachreiner said companies need to embrace integrated network, endpoint, mobile and identity-based access solutions for more comprehensive security. SMBs need the capability to detect attacks, Nachreiner said, but lack the time to interact with multiple dashboards, leading them to look for a single set of offerings.
