This week, WatchGuard has been recognized with three awards in Network Products Guide’s 14th Annual IT World Awards program. One of the industry’s leading technology research and advisory sources, Network Products Guide takes time each year to identify and recognize the world’s best products, solutions and companies across every area of information technology. This year, WatchGuard took home the following honors:
- Gold Winner for Unified or Integrated Security: WatchGuard Cloud
- Gold Winner for Security Hardware: Firebox M270

Named the leader in the Unified or Integrated Security category, the WatchGuard Cloud platform is a single, cloud-based interface that’s built from the ground up to support and enable both channel partners and mid-market end users. The solution reduces infrastructure costs, accelerates customer acquisition, delivers true multi-tier, multi-tenant management capabilities, and minimizes time spent on reporting and operational tasks. It’s the management platform of the future for MSPs because it dramatically simplifies how they protect their customers while enabling rapid, efficient and profitable growth and scales automatically to allow MSPs to create and manage an unlimited number of customer accounts.

The Firebox M270 came up big in the Security Hardware category this year as well. A rack-mount Unified Threat Management (UTM) appliance, the M270 is designed to defend smaller, less protected businesses against attacks that are just as fierce as those targeting larger organizations. The product is specifically engineered for small to midsize businesses that are struggling to effectively and affordably secure networks in the face of explosive growth in bandwidth rates, encrypted traffic, video use, and connection speeds. Additionally, it processes traffic up to 82% faster than competing solutions, according to independent network testing and certification lab, Miercom. Find out more about the Firebox M270 here.
