WatchGuard Technologies will provide firewall appliances for businesses using Mitel unified communications solutions. 


The deal aims to offer businesses better VoIP, corporate network, applications and data protection.


"WatchGuard is pleased to be working with Mitel by offering its extensible threat management (XTM) solutions to the market,” said Tim Helming, Director of Product Management at WatchGuard Technologies.  


"As the first vendor to offer comprehensive SIP and H.323 proxies, WatchGuard is in a unique position to best protect today’s unified communications environments.”


WatchGuard says its XTM security appliances feature SIP and H.323 proxy protection, which protect against VoIP threats including denial of service attacks, spam over Internet telephony (SPIT), voice service theft, registration hijacking, eavesdropping, directory harvesting, voice phishing (vishing) and more.


Paul Blide, vice-president Mitel DataNet CommSource, added, "Working with firewall appliance vendors like WatchGuard is a logical choice because their systems offer our customers the highest degree of performance, flexibility, reliability and most importantly protection for their business.”
