IT managers want to know how they can manage a multiplicity of threats

Wick Hill at Infosecurity Europe 2012

Stand No D50

Woking, Surrey: 18th April, 2012 - A greater range of threats, more complex threats, and how to deal with these threats on a limited budget will be the thoughts uppermost in the minds of Infosecurity Europe show visitors, says exhibitor and security specialist Wick Hill.

“In previous years,” said Ian Kilpatrick, chairman of Wick Hill Group, “visitors have come to the show wanting to find out about one or two particular issues, perhaps a perceived threat raised by management and a real threat known to IT managers. This year, threats have multiplied and IT managers want to know how they can manage a multiplicity of threats and fulfil their legal and compliance commitments, without employing any more staff and with a static budget.”

Kilpatrick thinks some of the issues concerning visitors will be security around the consumerisation of equipment, such as laptops and smartphones, ever-increasing remote access, data loss, virtualisation, convergence and the growing use of mobile devices.

Solutions on show

Wick Hill is showing a range of solutions at the show including those from WatchGuard Technologies, such as the recently launched XTM 33 security appliance for small businesses, four new virtual XTMv appliances for small, midsize and large-scale distributed environments, and XCS (eXtensible Content Security) Appliances, including a new XCSv virtualised version , for securing email/web data and preventing data loss.

On show from A10 Networks will be two new 64-bit models from the AX Series Application Delivery Controller family. A10 provides high performance products that help organisations of all sizes accelerate, optimise and secure their applications.

Other solutions on show include those from Barracuda Networks (content security appliances, networking products that improve application delivery and network access, and server load balancing products); Check Point (a range of solutions including Check Point security appliances, Check Point Security Gateway Software Blades and Check Point Virtualised Security Gateways); VIPRE Business (integrated anti-virus security solutions); Imation (secure mobile data storage); LogLogic (compliance and SIEM –Security Information and Event Management); Open Text (connectivity solutions for secure file transfer); and Kaspersky Lab (industry leading protection from viruses and malicious code, including mobile phone security).

WatchGuard Technologies

WatchGuard is showcasing its new virtual solutions for the first time in the UK. Being demonstrated are four new virtual XTMv appliances for small, midsize and large-scale distributed environments. They provide the same type of high security offered by WatchGuard XTM hardware appliances, including application control, reputation enabled defence, intrusion prevention, gateway anti-virus, WebBlocker and spamBlocker.

The WatchGuard XTMv series can manage traffic passing within the virtual infrastructure and across internal networks between virtual machines in the same cluster or on the same server. So XTM is well suited to implement security policies between applications, user communities or tenants.

WatchGuard is also showcasing its family of XCS (eXtensible Content Security) Appliances, including a new XCSv virtualised version , for securing email/web data and preventing data loss.

Four editions of XCSv will soon be available for small, midsize and large distributed environments, providing the same web content, DLP, email and messaging security offered by WatchGuard XCS hardware appliances. This includes advanced anti-spam and malware protection, zero-hour threat outbreak response and easy to use management and reporting features.

Other WatchGuard solutions being demonstrated include the recently launched XTM 33 security appliance for small businesses. For 5-30 users, it provides state of the art network protection in an all-in-one small form factor security appliance. Despite its small size and diminutive price tag, the WatchGuard XTM 33 is packed full with the latest security features and advanced networking technologies, providing a no compromise, ultimate firewall, optimised for today’s threat landscape.
