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.
