New Fireware® OS allows users to deploy, configure and manage wireless access points from a WatchGuard UTM or NGFW without additional hardware
30 May 2014 - WatchGuard® Technologies, has announced that its Unified Threat Management (UTM) and Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) appliances are the first to 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 entire network in real time.
"Today, wireless is an extension of an organisation's wired network, yet IT professionals are often forced to use separate tools and complex solutions when securing and managing those networks," said Dave R. Taylor, vice president of corporate and product strategy at WatchGuard Technologies. "The latest update to our platform is a significant step forward and an industry first. It will save customers time and money by allowing them to consolidate management and security around their wired and wireless networks. Set your policies once and they apply to all traffic, wired and wireless alike."
WatchGuard's Fireware 11.9 gives IT professionals the ability to quickly map wireless Access Points (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 organisation can also evaluate traffic and channel conflicts, identify vulnerabilities, manage bandwidth prioritisation and even map all wireless activity on neighbouring 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, Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) and Data Loss Prevention (DLP). Fireware also integrates WatchGuard DimensionTM, the company's award-winning big data visibility tool, through any WatchGuard threat management appliance.

Today’s connected world is moving from devices towards things, what this means is that by using increasingly low cost sensors embedded in devices we can create many new use cases. These span across use cases in cities, vehicles, home, offices, factories, retail environments, worksites, health, logistics, and health. These use cases rely on ubiquitous connectivity and generate massive amounts of data at scale. These technologies enable new business opportunities, ways to optimize and automate, along with new ways to engage with users.
