WatchGuard Technologies, announced that its Unified Threat Management (UTM) and Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) appliances are the first to allow users to deploy, configure and manage both wired and wireless network security through a single appliance in a “single pane of glass” view.
This enhanced wireless functionality – made possible by the release of WatchGuard’s Fireware® 11.9 operating system – eliminates the need for additional wireless network management solutions, and gives IT professionals a unified Web interface for managing and monitoring their entire network in real time.
“Today, wireless is an extension of an organization’s wired network. Yet, IT professionals are often forced to use separate tools and complex solutions when securing and managing those networks,” said Scott Robertson, APAC vice president at WatchGuard Technologies. “The latest update to our platform is a significant step forward and an industry first. It will save customers time and money by allowing them to consolidate management and security around their wired and wireless networks. Set your policies once and they apply to all traffic, wired and wireless alike.”
