WatchGuard has added new appliances to its Extensible Content Security (XCS) range.

According to the company, the XCS 280 and XCS 580 provide small and medium-sized businesses with a centralised management dashboard, making it easier to manage security options and create reports. In addition, customers get instant access to WatchGuard LiveSecurity Plus that provides 24/7 web or phone-based support services.

These also feature a data loss prevention wizard, ReputationAuthority and web security subscriptions for users with limited IT resources to deploy and maintain an enterprise-class content security solution.

Roger Klorese, WatchGuard's director of product management, said: “The WatchGuard XCS solution provides the web and email content security, management and reporting features that SMBs need to maintain the highest level of security and defend against attacks.”
