Next-Generation Web Reputation

WatchGuard Reputation Enabled Defense relies on a powerful, cloud-based web reputation service that aggregates data from multiple feeds, including industry-leading antivirus engines, for real-time protection from web threats. Traffic to URLs with a bad reputation are blocked immediately, freeing up your box to do more important tasks rather than constant AV scanning. Tests show a discount of up to 50 percent in antivirus processing.

Advanced Botnet Detection

Networks of infected computers, known as a botnet, are used by cyber criminals to attack or infiltrate specific targets. Unsuspecting employees inadvertently join botnets after falling victim to a drive-by-download or cleverly crafted phishing email. With WatchGuard’s Botnet Detection integration into Reputation Enabled Defense, organizations gain real-time visibility into infected clients and are empowered to quickly take action.
