WatchGuard, ManagedMethods develop security network

WatchGuard® Technologies and ManagedMethods have developed a network and cloud security solution for detecting, investigating, and blocking network and cloud application threats faced by small and midsize organizations and distributed enterprises, the companies said.

Sensitive data can move freely between the enterprise and the cloud, and IT security teams struggle to maintain control, prevent data loss, and reduce risk.

The ManagedMethods Cloud Access Monitor integrates with WatchGuard Dimension to deliver enhanced visibility and control into shadow IT, cloud application usage, compliance, and reporting. WatchGuard Dimension is a cloud-ready visibility and management platform used to analyze event logs from WatchGuard Firebox appliances.

This data is integrated into Cloud Access Monitor to extend visibility and reporting to the cloud, as well as to mobile devices outside of the corporate network, by utilizing APIs of popular cloud applications.

WatchGuard® Technologies provides network security, unified threat management, next generation firewall, secure Wi-Fi, and network intelligence products and services to more than 75,000 customers worldwide. It is headquartered in Seattle, Washington, with offices throughout North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America.

ManagedMethods develops Cloud Access Security (CASB) solutions that provide organizations visibility and control over Shadow IT and the growing use of cloud applications.
