EMEA playing greater role for WatchGuard

Simon Quicke

Watchguard has boasted of strong demand for XTM products as customers look for next generation unified threat management products to cope with increasing security threats.

The privately-owned vendor doesn't break out specific numbers but revealed that it has grown sales by 16% year-on-year in its second quarter and EMEA had now grown to 36% of worldwide revenues.

The revenue growth numbers released by WatchGuard are linked with demand for its XTM 5 Series, which is aimed at the mid-market, a sector of the customer base that grew by 19% in Q2 with UTM also rising 30% in the enterprise space.

Richard Barber, CFO at WatchGuard, said that the recent refresh of the XTM 5 series had produced results and more customers of different sizes were taking its products.
