WatchGuard Offers Trade-In Program
The program lets businesses trade in competitive UTM firewalls for a free WatchGuard XTM multi-function firewall.
WatchGuard has announced a new competitive trade-in program, 'Red Instead', that allows businesses to trade in competitive unified threat management (UTM) firewalls or spam/content security appliances for free WatchGuard XTM multifunction firewalls and WatchGuard XCS messaging security appliances. The details of the program, as noted in this Earth Times report, require customers to sign a three-year WatchGuard XTM or XCS software bundle suite.
"The WatchGuard XTM 5 Series combines firewall/ VPN with unmatched throughput and a suite of flexible management tools to give mid-size businesses a sure-fire way to keep their networks safe. These newest additions to the XTM family sport the industry's highest full UTM performance. Furthermore seven Ethernet interfaces -- six GigE and one FE -- provide high-speed LAN backbone infrastructure and gigabit WAN connectivity. IT administrators can manage security from a centralized console, scriptable CLI, and web UI. Real-time monitoring and rich reporting are included at no extra cost.
"Ideal for main offices/headquarters with up to 5,000 users, the WatchGuard XTM 8 Series includes full HTTPS inspection, optional URL filtering, anti-spam, anti-virus and intrusion prevention. Flexible, centralized management tools provide administration access from one intuitive console or a scriptable CLI, and include real-time monitoring and rich reporting. High availability (active/active), multi-WAN, server load balancing, and VLAN can be configured to ensure maximum uptime."
