Richard Stiennon, chief research analyst with IT-Harvest and industry luminary, talks with WatchGuard VP, Eric Aarrestad about the latest trends in IT security, UTMs, web-based threats, Application Control and more…
If you ever wanted to get an in-depth perspective on WatchGuard or wondered what industry analysts are asking about the company and its products, then this is a video for you.
Around the 11:00 minute mark, Richard asks Eric about WatchGuard’s platform – and one thing that Eric hits upon is how the company leverages the latest and greatest from Intel. Unlike other vendors who use old, proprietary chipsets, or “you-buy-cheap” silicon, WatchGuard values the solid reliability, consistency and enterprise-class performance gained by using Intel-based processors in its security appliances.
This is something that WatchGuard doesn’t make a lot of noise about, but it’s a great example of the little things that WatchGuard does right in moving security forward.
