WatchGuard TDR Wins CRN Tech Innovator Award for Threat Detection Security

We’re thrilled to share that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has once again recognized WatchGuard Technologies with a 2019 CRN Tech Innovator Award . These annual awards honor innovative hardware, software, and services. CRN editors evaluated hundreds of products, across 34 technology categories using criteria, including technological advancements, uniqueness of features, and potential to help solution providers solve common IT challenges. This year, WatchGuard's Threat Detection and Response (TDR) took top honors in the “Security – Threat Detection” category.

According to CRN, “The latest version of WatchGuard’s Threat Detection and Response offering brings significant updates such as accelerated breach detection and threat analysis powered by AI. The offering provides automated identification of unknown processes that are connecting to malicious destinations, allowing advanced threats to be quickly remediated. Meanwhile, new ThreatSync capabilities leverage AI to automatically identify files that possess suspicious characteristics, and then send them to WatchGuard’s APT Blocker cloud sandbox for further analysis. The latest updates enable MSPs to dramatically reduce breach detection and containment time frames while automating the remediation of zero-day malware and improving defense against targeted threats.”

“CRN’s Tech Innovator Awards honor technology vendors who work tirelessly to craft ground-breaking solutions for end users, matching the speed of the channel’s evolution,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “The winners in this year’s award categories deserve congratulations for their success in driving IT innovation forward for solution providers and their customers.”
