Watchguard Virtual Firebox

WatchGuard Virtual Firebox is a firewall software that provides network security within virtual environments. The software extends the capabilities of the physical WatchGuard appliance to defend against web threats, email content security risks, application control and data loss prevention (DLP). The platform can manage multiple firewalls through a single centralized console interface. This cloud-ready technology offers more flexible deployment options with the ability to scale as business needs evolve. By supporting hypervisor platforms such as VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V, and Citrix XenServer, WatchGuard Virtual Firebox integrates seamlessly into existing IT infrastructures while maintaining visibility and control over network traffic for enhanced threat detection and response.
