  Comguard Offers Virtualization with Security from WatchGuard in the Region
 - Comguard introduces Entire Portfolio of Award Winning WatchGuard Content and Network
            Security Products as Virtualized Solutions in the Middle East Region -

Dubai, UAE, 8th July, 2012 – Comguard, a Dubai based leading value added distributor for IT security
products and the authorised distributor for WatchGuard Technologies, a global leader in business
security solutions launch of its entire line of content and network security products as virtualized
solutions in the Middle East region. This new move gives customers and channel partners of Comguard
an unparalleled offering of both hardware and virtual security solutions to best meet their business
needs.

Mohammad Mobasseri, Senior Vice President at Comguard, said, "We are excited to offer products and
solutions that are specially created to exploit the virtual paradigm to its fullest which can actually
improve on the capabilities, flexibility, and features of their physical incarnations."

WatchGuard XTMv - Virtualized Extensible Threat Management
Four editions of XTMv are being launched to meet the needs of small, midsize and large-scale
distributed environments. This includes, XTMv Small Office edition, Medium Office, Large Office and
Datacenter. These virtual versions provide the same type of high security offered by WatchGuard XTM
series hardware appliances, including Application Control, Reputation Enabled Defense, intrusion
prevention, gateway anti-virus, web blocking traffic shaping, and more.

Because multiple instances of XTMv can run on a single vSphere hypervisor, the WatchGuard virtual
appliance is ideal for managed security services providers (MSSPs), hosting providers, and larger IT
organizations who wish to run separate logical firewalls on the same host system.

Furthermore, because the WatchGuard XTMv series can manage traffic passing within the virtual
infrastructure, and even across internal networks between virtual machines in the same cluster or on
the same server, XTMv is well suited to implement security policies between applications, user
communities or tenants. Even in small offices with a single server running consolidated workloads, an
instance of XTMv can be run on the same server to protect the full server consolidation environment.

WatchGuard XCSv - Extensible Content, DLP, Web and Email Security Now Virtualized
Like the XTMv offerings, four editions of XCSv are now available, which includes XCSv Small Office
edition, Medium Office, Large Office and Large Office XC. These virtual versions provide the same level
of web content, DLP, email and messaging security offered by WatchGuard XCS hardware appliances,
including advanced anti-spam and malware protection, zero-hour threat outbreak response and easy to
use management and reporting features.
Because the WatchGuard XCSv series can be deployed adjacent to messaging and web servers within
the virtual infrastructure, and even across internal networks between virtual machines in the same
cluster or on the same server, XCSv is well suited to implement web and messaging security policies
between domains, applications, user communities or tenants. Even in small offices with a single server
running consolidated workloads, an instance of XCSv can be run on the same server to provide web,
DLP, email and messaging security.

"For small and midsized businesses the cloud is real, and WatchGuard is ready to protect it," said Eric
Aarrestad, Vice President of Marketing at WatchGuard Technologies. "Hardware-based security is great
and will be the mainstay for many businesses. However, there are many businesses now that are taking
advantage of virtualization. For them, WatchGuard will be in lock step to provide the best security
offerings for virtual environments, too."

Comguard is distributing WatchGuard XTMv and XCSv across the Middle East region including UAE,
Oman, Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait, Jordan, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and Egypt among others.
