“Organisations need high performance UTM security solutions with fast speeds to quickly scale and operate seamlessly across their networks,” said Brendan Patterson, director of Product Management at WatchGuard. “They shouldn’t have to sacrifice performance for security – anywhere in their network. Our Fireboxes consolidate critical network and security functions into a single, centrally managed UTM platform that is easy to set up, deploy and manage.”
The Firebox M4600/M5600 appliances provide greater port density options that enable IT professionals to add additional network modules with more fibre or copper ports. Each appliance has two available slots for expansion modules and options for 4x10Gb fibre, 8x1Gb copper, or 8x1Gb fibre. Network modularity empowers IT pros to customise the port configuration to meet their needs, while ensuring the flexibility to adapt the firewall as their network evolves.
"With the new WatchGuard Firebox M4600 and M5600 appliances, we can offer our customers enterprise-grade network security and the ability to maintain visibility across their entire network using the fastest, highest performing UTM solution on the market,” said Dave Ashton, sales manager at WatchGuard UK partner Sec-1. “Companies are increasingly distributed with more remote offices and employees on the move or home workers. The WatchGuard firewalls deliver the protection, performance and flexibility needed to meet all these demands in a single appliance.”
Standard with all WatchGuard appliances is access to Dimension, the company's award-winning, actionable threat intelligence platform. Dimension aggregates data from all WatchGuard appliances across a customer's network and translates that data into visually rich and actionable information. With Dimension, customers can easily see not only what is going on in their network but proactively take steps, faster than ever before, to update their security policies immediately, right from the reporting dashboards, to stop malicious sites, applications and users.

The company’s patented SafeSignal technology allows users to send distress signals from a locked phone – without pressing a button
AUSTIN, Texas – AlertMedia, a leader in the emergency communication software industry, today announced the launch of its SafeSignal technology. Combined with AlertMedia’s 24-hour Monitoring Center, SafeSignal provides a new level of safety and security for people working in high-risk situations around the world.
“They can now do their jobs with confidence, knowing that our monitoring team and law enforcement is essentially by their side, making sure they are safe.”Tweet this
AlertMedia recently completed an initial rollout of SafeSignal across the state of Texas, where several state and local agencies are using the service to give their thousands of employees a crucial level of protection and peace of mind. With the launch announcement, AlertMedia will begin offering SafeSignal throughout the United States, as well as internationally in the more than 80 countries where AlertMedia already has customers.
“Our technology is redefining safety for organizations with people in the field, specifically those who often find themselves working or traveling in dangerous locations or conditions. Social service workers, home healthcare workers, realtors – people in these professions are breathing an enormous sigh of relief when we put SafeSignal in their hands,” said Brian Cruver, founder and CEO of AlertMedia. “They can now do their jobs with confidence, knowing that our monitoring team and law enforcement is essentially by their side, making sure they are safe.”
The patented, zero-button SafeSignal solution works in conjunction with a tether that plugs into any iOS or Android smartphone. Pulling the brightly colored tether activates an audible alarm while sending a distress signal, along with critical details on the situation, to the AlertMedia Monitoring Center. AlertMedia immediately responds according to a custom action plan established with the employer, which typically includes dispatching law enforcement to the user’s precise location.
“SafeSignal is groundbreaking technology in the emergency communication industry, which allows us to accompany people as they encounter dangerous situations,” says Heather Deason, a former 911 Operations Specialist, and now the Director of AlertMedia’s Monitoring Center. “Since the initial rollout, we have already coordinated with law enforcement to assist with several hundred incidents.”
As the fastest-growing mass communication and emergency notification software provider in the world, AlertMedia helps organizations securely and effectively monitor threats, streamline notifications, and recover from incidents. The company’s fully integrated, cloud-based platform delivers communication tools that can be accessed from anywhere, at any time, using any device. Customers in telecom, healthcare, transportation, energy, manufacturing, government, and education are using the AlertMedia platform to protect their organizations, automate operations, and mitigate loss.

SAN FRANCISCO – IObit, the world famous system utilities and security software provider, unleashed IObit Malware Fighter 4 today. This new edition upgrades IObit's anti-malware engine and teams with Bitdefender's anti-virus engine to strengthen its dual-engines while helping users defend against malware and attacking threats.
Over 390,000 new malicious programs are registered every day, according to AV-TEST. Below is a graphic of malware increasing tendency in the last decade. The total malware in 2015 nearly reaches 500 million! To better help users protect their PC from dangerous malware; IObit Malware Fighter 4 enhanced its anti-malware engine with both the IObit anti-malware engine and the Bitdefender anti-virus engine to create a database 10 times larger than IObit Malware Fighter 3. IMF4 can now support the removal of over 100 million hidden malware and viruses.
Recently, the eDellRoot certificate is detected as a potential risk for Dell computer users as it may allow attackers to sign malware files as if they were legitimate files.

Good news is this data has been collected in IMF 4's enlarged anti-malware database, allowing malware to be easily detected and completely removed by IMF 4. In addition, IMF4 enhanced Security Guard and Browser Protect helps make sure attacks like harmful cookies could be immediately deleted and protects users from phishing site attacks, scams and other potential threats.
"IObit has set up an anti-malware database team focused on collecting data and constructing a real-time supply for the IMF database," said Antonio Zhang, Marketing Director of IObit. "The threats in all operating systems, even Windows 10, can be detected and removed immediately. Furthermore, we've minimized the resource usage during threat scanning and removing in IMF4, aimed to return users more available resources for better operation."

Directly addressing concerns about its readiness for production, application container leader Docker is rolling out "container-as-a-service" platform designed to ease application development and management at scale.
The Docker Datacenter unveiled Tuesday (Feb. 23) seeks to combine the inherent agility of application containers with greater control and security as enterprises attempt to scale container technology. Aiming to deliver on its "build, ship and run" mantra, the new container service is a "metaphor for pulling everything together" as container technology moves to production, according to Scott Johnson, Docker's senior vice president of product management.
Docker's holistic approach includes a control plane that can be used in the datacenter or in a private cloud along with the company's trusted registry and lightweight runtime. As an example of container agility, Johnson noted in an interview that the new service could help reduce the time needed to push an application change to production from weeks to as little as a day.

With Citrix solutions, companies can secure and control applications, data and usage in any scenario to keep people productive wherever and however they choose to work.
Read our solution brief “Managing Risk by Protecting Apps, Data and Usage” and watch the video below to learn more about the Citrix approach to enterprise security.
Docker announced a new container control center today it’s calling the Docker Datacenter (DDC), an integrated administrative console that has been designed to give large and small businesses control over creating, managing and shipping containers.
The DDC is a new tool made up of various commercial pieces including Docker Universal Control Plane (which also happens to be generally available today) and Docker Trusted Registry. It also includes open source pieces such as Docker Engine. The idea is to give companies the ability to manage the entire lifecycle of Dockerized applications from one central administrative interface.
Customers actually were the driving force behind this new tool. While companies liked the agility that Docker containers give them, they also wanted management control over administration, security and governance around the containers they were creating and shipping, Scott Johnston, SVP of product management told TechCrunch.
