SC Magazine Review of WatchGuard’s XTM 505

The importance of network security is unquestioned.  However, the decision as to which is the best security product to purchase can be difficult and time consuming. Thankfully, SC Magazine tests and evaluates various security products and makes recommendations that simplify the buying process for its readers. So when an industry trade publication as reputable as SC Magazine tells its readers they have found a network security product “Best Buy,” it is wise to listen.

As called out by SC Magazine, the WatchGuard XTM 505 offers full UTM capabilities in a solid, easy to use appliance, which features firewall, application control, anti-virus, instrusion prevention, web filtering, anti-spam and WatchGuard’s innovative cloud-based security service, Reputation Enabled Defense.

SC magazine made it very clear that the WatchGuard XTM 505 was tops in this UTM group round-up. In addition to receiving perfect marks in performance, features, documentation, and value, The XTM 505 was also given five stars for ease of use.  “Installation and deployment of the XTM is quite straightforward, and we were up and running in just a few minutes with a solid configuration. The initial install is guided by a setup wizard, which can be run from either the web-based interface or the WatchGuard management application.”

WatchGuard recognizes that exceptional security is more than just hardware and software.  A superior security solution also requires having informed technical representatives that support their security system.  SC Magazine recognized the technical support provided with the purchase of WatchGuard’s XTM and emphasized this to its readers: “WatchGuard offers its Live Security Plus program with the purchase of the XTM for five incidents annually, as well as 24/7 phone and email technical support. Customers can also access an online support area with a knowledge base and other support areas.”

WatchGuard strives to be the best solution for a business’ security needs. SC Magazine’s recent stamp of approval validates our hard work and dedication to providing the best possible security product, which now can also be called a “Best Buy.”
