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. Unlike other network security devices, Fireware 10 and Edge 10 are optimized for today’s complex network connectivity schemes, and are designed for greater administrator management and control.

“Businesses today face increasingly new challenges of more mobile workers, remote and branch office environments, and new technologies that stretch the limits of conventional network security appliances,” said Eric Aarrestad, Vice President of Marketing at WatchGuard. “Recognizing this, WatchGuard developed version 10 to alleviate connectivity challenges, while improving security and providing administrators with new levels of control.”

The cybersecurity profession struggles to retain women (figures range from 10 to 20 percent). It's particularly worrisome for an industry with a rapidly growing number of vacant positions.

So why does the shortage of women continue to be worse in security than in other IT sectors? How can men in infosec be better allies for women; and how can women be better allies for one another? What is the industry doing to fix the problem -- what's working, and what isn't?

Is this really a problem at all? Are the low numbers simply an indication that women do not want to be in cybersecurity, and is it possible that more women will never want to be in cybersecurity? How many women would we need to see in the industry to declare success?

Join Dark Reading senior editor Sara Peters and guests Angela Knox of Cloudmark, Barrett Sellers of Arbor Networks, Regina Wallace-Jones of Facebook, Steve Christey Coley of MITRE, and Chris Roosenraad of M3AAWG on Wednesday, July 13 at 1 p.m. Eastern Time to discuss all this and more.
