WatchGuard integrates wired and wireless network security
Posted on 02 June 2014.
WatchGuard has announced that its UTM and NGFW appliances allow users to deploy, configure and manage both wired and wireless network security through a single device 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 network in real time.

WatchGuard's Fireware 11.9 gives IT professionals the ability to map wireless APs and coverage, change both wired and wireless security policies simultaneously and to enforce traffic, coverage and security standards across the entire network infrastructure.

The organization can also evaluate traffic and channel conflicts, identify vulnerabilities, manage bandwidth prioritization and even map all wireless activity on neighboring networks sharing the same frequency. This insures that all traffic and security issues are apparent and can be addressed in real time, including rogue APs that may mimic others on the network.

Version 11.9 of WatchGuard's Fireware operating system includes other best-of-breed services such as: AntiVirus, AntiSpam, Application Control, ATP and DLP. Fireware also integrates WatchGuard Dimension, the company's award-winning big data visibility tool, through any WatchGuard threat management appliance.
