All WatchGuard XTM appliances provide a range of network traffic and user authorization logging capabilities. For verbose diagnostics, either syslog or the WatchGuard proprietary formats may be used for collecting network traffic data. In addition, integration with standard network monitoring solutions can be achieved via the XTM SNMP support.
Extensible threat management (XTM) security solutions from WatchGuard aggregate multiple security measures into a single, easily configurable solution. Choose from a family of these devices, which can be deployed everywhere from individual schools to district or state data centers. XTM protects school data while delivering reliable management, monitoring, logging, and reporting.

It also allows school acceptable usage policies to be reinforced by providing detailed control over those applications and services that users are able to access.
K-12 schools in particular require detailed control of the content that students are allowed to access for CIPA compliance and to meet their Acceptable Usage criteria.
