WatchGuard Technologies is excited that Info-Tech Research Group recently named us the “Value Award” winner and #1 vendor in the unified threat management space. As their report starts out… “Network security may be old-school, but it is not passé; the right perimeter protection means more threats stay outside & more data stays inside.”
We believe that not only should your business network and email security be the best at stopping the latest threats and keeping data safe, but it should also be affordable, easy to own, and easy to manage for all businesses. WatchGuard is proud to be the leader in the Product Evaluation and Vendor Evaluation categories, which are: features, affordability, usability, architecture, viability, strategy, reach, and channel. Based on the Scoring Criteria, this impressive recognition further exemplifies WatchGuard’s superiority in the Unified Threat Management (UTM) market, and is a testament as to why small to midsize businesses prefer WatchGuard for their network security.
Info-Tech Research Group noted that affordability and capability played an important role in naming WatchGuard a leader among its competitors. “Balance of strong product and vendor capabilities at a market-leading price point [WatchGuard] leads with UTM solution that can deliver benefits to any organization.” The vendors being evaluated by Info-Tech Research included Palo Alto, SonicWALL, Juniper, Cisco, Barracuda, and Fortinet, among others with an average score of 45.7. WatchGuard received a perfect score of a 100, more than doubling the average. We’re proud that we are setting the standards by which all other UTM vendors are compared to!
While we may have started out with a focus on the SMB space, our products are catching the eye of larger enterprises every day, and this report validates our efforts. Our unified threat management solution helps create a solid network security barrier around your organization and we’re thrilled to be a leader!
