Introducing the lean, mean content security machine

As goes the Internet, so goes security for the content it carries: throughput is king. As the volume of email and the amount of information it carries continues to increase exponentially, vendors like WatchGuard need to deliver more performance in our enterprise content security solutions.

Sure, we could add more cores and more hard disk space. But bigger isn’t always better; instead of building a fire-breathing monster, we opted for a different approach. Today we are announcing a leaner, meaner security solution for email (and web) content: the WatchGuard XCS 880. Delivering 20 percent more processing power, twice the email throughput per dollar, and all of the redundancy you need for non-stop security, while consuming less than half the energy of previous models – the WatchGuard XCS 880 combines power and efficiency in a slim 1U profile.

Smaller, lighter, less expensive to power and to cool – the XCS 880 is another proof point of our Best of Breed security appliance strategy. You can take advantage of the performance curve our processor partner, Intel, provides generation after generation – and instead of having to maintain your own operating system, install and configure lots of separate security products from different vendors and manage them from separate interfaces, you get one integrated solution managed from a single pane of glass.

  1. The thing I love most about WatchGuard XCS products I not just their performance aspects, but that WatchGuard also has an eye on power usage and builds a product that not only performs well but lowers the ongoing operating costs.

  2. Just rolled out this ones little brother, the XCS580. So far it’s been a great bit of kit and allowed them to consolidate an Ironport and a Barracuda. Was a lot easier to setup than the Ironport ever was.
