Partners and customers using WatchGuard’s Endpoint Security solutions can now layer on Patch Management, Encryption, Reporting and Data Control to simplify management and create new revenue opportunities
16 November 2021 – WatchGuard® Technologies has announced four new endpoint security modules in WatchGuard Cloud including Patch Management, Full Encryption, Advanced Reporting Tool (ART) and Data Control. This integration further strengthens WatchGuard’s Unified Security Platform™ and gives solution providers and customers centralised access to all WatchGuard endpoint solutions, with the ability to layer on additional security services such as network security, MFA and secure Wi-Fi.
“WatchGuard continues to deliver on its vision of a Unified Security Platform that enables MSPs to offer a comprehensive set of enterprise-grade security services to protect businesses of all sizes,” said Andrew Young, senior vice president of product management at WatchGuard. “The addition of these new endpoint modules not only dramatically simplifies the management of our endpoint security portfolio for MSPs but provides them with new cross-sell and up-sell revenue opportunities as well.”
WatchGuard elevates the practice of professional service delivery with its Unified Security Platform that includes a complete portfolio of endpoint, multi-factor authentication and network security products. It brings together the integration of the endpoint security modules into the Unified Security Platform’s centralised management layer, while WatchGuard Cloud simplifies administration, visibility and reporting for MSPs. Is also provides added protection and further increases the effectiveness and operational efficiency of WatchGuard’s existing Endpoint Security portfolio – which includes WatchGuard EPP (Endpoint Protection Platform), WatchGuard EDR (Endpoint Detection and Response), and WatchGuard EPDR (Endpoint Protection Detection and Response).
Key features of the new endpoint security modules include:
- WatchGuard Patch Management – Manages vulnerabilities in operating systems and hundreds of third-party applications on Windows workstations and servers. This provides a reduced attack surface, strengthening preventative capabilities and incident containment. Available as an add-on to WatchGuard EPDR, EDR, and EPP solutions.
- WatchGuard Full Encryption – Centrally controls and manages full disk and USB drive encryption and key recovery, leveraging BitLocker in Windows systems. Available as an add-on to WatchGuard EPDR, EDR, and EPP solutions.
- WatchGuard Advanced Reporting Tool (ART) – Provides detailed information into the day-to-day operation of applications, networks and users. This includes pre-defined queries, dashboards and alerts on endpoints out of the box. Managers can also create custom queries and alerts based on endpoint telemetry. Available as an add-on to WatchGuard EPDR and EDR solutions.
- WatchGuard Data Control* – Discovers, audits and monitors unstructured sensitive or personal data on endpoints, from data at rest, data in use and data in motion. It can also run real-time, free custom searches to find files within specific content. Available as an add-on to WatchGuard EPDR and EDR solutions. (*Currently available in Spain, Germany, UK, Sweden, France, Italy, Portugal, Holland, Finland, Denmark, Switzerland, Norway, Austria, Belgium, Hungary, and Ireland.)
