Based on its recent analysis of the network security technologies markets for small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs), Frost & Sullivan recognizes WatchGuard Technologies Inc. with the 2008 North American Network Security Technologies Technology Innovation of the Year Award. This is in recognition to the company's pioneering efforts and innovation of technologies for virtual private network (VPN) gateway security services.

While secure sockets layer VPN (SSL VPN) is emerging as a mainstream technology for secure remote access for large enterprises, the network security industry concurrently envisions a rapid growth in the number of mobile users even in small and medium businesses, thereby creating a huge need for remote access in SMEs.

"Towards this goal, WatchGuard has recently developed an SSL based secure remote access VPN that could be easily deployed among mobile workforces in SMEs," says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Arun Nirmal. "WatchGuard's innovative Firebox X Peak™, Core™ and Edge VPN SSL gateway solutions address not only current security challenges for SMEs but also revolutionize the progress in the area of secure remote access in enterprises."

Firebox VPN gateways provide world-class dependability and availability of network applications and resources through SSL encrypted tunnels. They also support end-to-end enterprise security by providing built-in endpoint enforcements and authentications methods. Device attributes such as registry, file and process and multiple authentications schemes for servers, processes and user groups constitute to the endpoint security features associated with Firebox SSL VPNs. Moreover, the Firebox Peak VPN gateway supports more than 6,000 concurrent tunnels, with each activated tunnel offering end-to-end connection for every user.

WatchGuard's SSL VPN appliances can be seamlessly deployed in the local area network (LAN) by connecting it behind the firewall or a load balancer or by straddling a firewall. The highly effective and easy deployment ability of the Firebox VPN gateway enables the company to provide the IT administrators with robust administrative and security command over the remote access network. Apart from this, VPN gateway can be easily aligned with the company's complimentary unified threat management (UTM) solutions to deliver superior remote access security for SMEs.

The Firebox SSL VPN gateway also comprises of an original VPN manager which can automatically configure, monitor and manage the VPN tunnels across the enterprise. The VPN manager is built on an innovative dynamic VPN configuration protocol (DVCP) technology, which helps in configuring the VPN logs on multiple network devices, thereby significantly reducing the time involved in the process.

"WatchGuard's proprietary DVCP technology facilitates the users to dynamically create VPN rules and tunnels in network devices without causing redundancy in policy creation for each device separately," notes Nirmal. "This key feature aids the VPN manager to dynamically distribute VPN configurations, thereby launching the VPN tunnels instantaneously."

In summary, With WatchGuard's breakthrough innovations in the SSL VPN domain are driving tremendous developments in the area of network security for SMEs and the industry will soon recognize this enterprise sector as a major market for global research, development and deployment. In recognition of its superlative capabilities to deliver advanced enterprise security solutions through the innovative Firebox SSL VPN gateway and DVCP technology along with the UTM solution, Frost & Sullivan is proud to present WatchGuard with the Frost & Sullivan 2008 North American Technology Innovation of the Year Award.
