GDPR

Upgrade Your Security for GDPR Compliance

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes effect on 25 May 2018, and drives comprehensive adoption of upgraded data security practices, policies and technology for most worldwide companies. It broadly defines personal data as any information that can be directly or indirectly attributed to an individual, including such seemingly benign data as IP address, and then mandates compliance from any organization that collects it from an EU citizen. That’s nearly every company that transacts business within the EU!

The Regulation directs companies to add new consent procedures, notification processes, reporting and communication mechanisms, as well as upgrade network security to the latest technology that provides “situational awareness of risks” and “enables preventative, corrective and mitigating action” in near real time. WatchGuard is ready to help you to prepare for GDPR compliance and implement the network security solutions that address the new requirements for strongest security with our Total Security Suite.

Threat Detection and Response Security Service

Threat Detection and Response is available with WatchGuard’s Total Security Suite, and provides “situational awareness” with our distinctive ThreatSync feature. ThreatSync correlates security information from network and endpoint devices to make you aware of escalating security incidents in an easy-to-decipher dashboard. Furthermore, you can create policies to remediate “high-scoring” incidents automatically, and since TDR is a cloud-based service, you can choose to have your data stored in the EU to comply with the data transfer article in the Regulation.

Network Visibility with User Anonymization

WatchGuard Dimension is a cloud-ready network security visibility solution that comes standard with WatchGuard’s flagship firewall platform. It provides the big data visibility and reporting tools that uniquely identify and distill key network security threats, issues and trends, accelerating the ability to set meaningful security policies across the network. What’s more, Dimension includes a powerful User Anonymization feature that uses pseudonymization technology to replace all personally identifiable information (PII) with hashed placeholder text in Dimension’s reports, dashboards, and summary pages.

Encryption and VPN

Keeping personal data encrypted in storage and during transit is a key strategy for success as it significantly reduces the notification requirements after a data breach. WatchGuard’s Firebox UTM solutions feature drag-and-drop VPN creation between branch offices and HQ. In addition to fast and easy set-up, our VPNs are built to last, and known for their stability ― which is critically important when your business relies on consistent data availability.

Data Loss Prevention

GDPR is all about data protection, and our Data Loss Prevention service helps to prevent accidental data breaches by detecting and blocking files with personal information from leaving the network. It looks for private information such as national security numbers, bank account details, and patient records, based on the rules that you enable.
