A quick look at our newly built peripheral security modules:

  • WatchGuard patch management It helps manage security vulnerabilities in operating systems and hundreds of third-party applications on Windows workstations and servers. This not only reduces the attack area. Preventive measures can be better implemented and accidents contained more quickly. Available as an add-on for WatchGuard EPDR, EDR, and EPP.
  • WatchGuard full encryption Allows centralized control and management of encryption of hard disks and USB drives as well as key recovery using BitLocker on Windows systems. Available as an add-on for WatchGuard EPDR, EDR, and EPP.
  • WatchGuard Advanced Reporting Tool (ART) It provides detailed information about the daily operation of applications and networks as well as about users. This includes predefined queries, dashboards, and endpoint alerts. In addition, administrators can generate specific queries and warnings based on telemetry data for peripheral devices. Available as an add-on for WatchGuard EPDR and EDR.
  • WatchGuard data monitoring* To detect, scan and monitor a variety of unstructured, sensitive or personal data on peripheral devices. Last but not least, this includes custom real-time searches to find files within a given context. Available as an add-on for WatchGuard EPDR and EDR. (*Currently available in Spain, Germany, Great Britain, Sweden, France, Italy, Portugal, Netherlands, Finland, Denmark, Switzerland, Norway, Austria, Belgium, Hungary and Ireland).
