SEATTLE -- WatchGuard® Technologies, a global provider of network security solutions, today unveiled its latest version of network security software for its Firebox® X Peak™, Core™ and Edge unified threat management (UTM) appliances, giving WatchGuard network security appliances new and strengthened security capabilities that help businesses improve productivity and allow network administrators to focus on non-security related, mission critical activities.

For businesses that need state of the art network security, WatchGuard Fireware® 10 and Edge 10 are robust operating systems for the WatchGuard Firebox X Peak, Core and Edge families of UTM appliances, and sport a multitude of unparalleled security features.
