WatchGuard showcases new DNSWatchGO Service at DTX Europe to Eliminate Security Blind Spots and Blocks Phishing Attempts
WatchGuard Technologies has announced the release of DNSWatchGO, a new cloud-based security service that automatically detects and blocks phishing attacks, command and control callbacks and data exfiltration attempts against users both inside and outside the network perimeter. Available as a standalone solution and through Passport, WatchGuard’s new user-centric security services bundle, DNSWatchGO offers DNS-level protection and content filtering to protect users wherever they are. It also provides automated end-user security awareness and education features that are designed to help prevent future security incidents – all in a simplified, cost-effective solution that’s easy to deploy and manage.
“As the workforce becomes increasingly mobile, businesses need to be able to protect against the increasing attacks that take place outside of their core network. They need to be able to monitor off-network traffic, filter access to malicious and unwanted content, and protect users even when they’re not using a VPN,” said Andrew Young, SVP of product management at WatchGuard.
The DNSWatchGO service is uniquely designed to simplify off-network security for midsize organisations and the IT solution providers that support them.
