In a bid to make its mark in cloud security, business security solutions company WatchGuard today announced the virtualisation of its network security products.
"Hardware-based security is great and will be the mainstay for many businesses. However, there are many businesses now that are taking advantage of virtualisation," said Scott Robertson, vice president of WatchGuard Technologies Asia Pacific in support of the shift.
WatchGuard will launch four products from its XTMv Virtualized Extensible Threat Management product line and four from their XCSv line.
The products will be supported on VMware versions 4.1 and 5.0. Pricing will vary depending on edition sizes, security services and bundles, according to the statement.
