WatchGuard Technologies Named a Visionary in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Unified Threat Management (SMB Multifunction Firewalls) -- WatchGuard believes its position as the only Visionary for the third year running is due to continued product innovation and ambitious roadmap.

WatchGuard® Technologies, a leader in advanced network security solutions, announced that for the third consecutive year, it has been positioned as the only company in the Visionaries quadrant of Gartner's Magic Quadrant for the Unified Threat Management (SMB Multifunction Firewalls) market.

"We consider our consistent Visionary position within the UTM Magic Quadrant a reflection of WatchGuard’s fundamental determination to understand, anticipate and address the network security challenges facing SMBs and distributed enterprises today," said Prakash Panjwani, CEO of WatchGuard Technologies. "With the addition of offerings like APT Blocker and Threat Detection and Response, we've accelerated key security services to market faster than competitors, which is vital as we work to continually expand the definition of unified threat management."

WatchGuard believes that placement as the only Visionary in the UTM Magic Quadrant for the past three years validates its mission to deliver a comprehensive set of enterprise-grade security solutions that are easily deployed and managed for mid-market customers. WatchGuard’s security appliances run on the Fireware® platform, which is designed to operate leading security engines in every category. Some of the company’s most notable strengths include WatchGuard Total Security Suite, its all-in-one bundle of security services that offers protection for both the network and the endpoint, and WatchGuard Dimension’s data analytics and reporting capabilities.
