Firewall boosts security features

WatchGuard® Technologies today released enhancements to its extensible threat management (XTM) family of multifunction firewalls.

With the new WatchGuard Safe Search feature, administrators can manage and enforce search engine filtering settings to ensure users do not see adult content in their search results. By setting this option at the XTM firewall gateway, administrators override whatever preference users set in their web browser. Also improved is the Application Control functionality. Administrators can now manage more than 1,800 applications.
