    Avast CloudCare is great when it comes to ease of installation and GUI. Working inside the web portal is pretty self-intuitive. Some of the issues revolve around computers coming up missing from the portal or from computer jumping sites.

    WatchGuard Network Security

    WatchGuard is very well suited for a set-it-and-forget-it scenario. For probably the first year or two of having our Firebox, we didn't change a single setting after the first initial setup. It ran fine, operating to full capacity without any interactions or tweaks. Great to just set up and leave it alone.

    Pros

    Avast CloudCare

    • Virus alerts
    • webshield
    • backup services
    • threat protection
    Matthew Strickland | TrustRadius Reviewer

    WatchGuard Network Security

    • Control of web access of devices within the network.
    • Automatic address blocking after successive external attack attempts.
    • VPN feature between WatchGuard devices very transparent and stable.
    • Simple and very functional Policy Manager management console.
    • Simple and reliable spamBlocker feature, really holding back suspicious emails.
    GILIAN HASS | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    Avast CloudCare

    • Below average protection
    • Unreasonably high system resource consumption.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    WatchGuard Network Security

    • It would be nice to have a fully functional web interface [for the] server manager. The server manager is often very slow over remote connections.
    • Better support for OpenVPN server, or at least an easier way of creating tunnels using OpenVPN.
    • user VPN user management is a little confusing until you understand that all users need to be created under SSL users, regardless of VPN type.
    • Would be nice to have traffic statistics on traffic management objects.

    WatchGuard Network Security 9.7
    Based on 19 answers
    Ever since 2007, WatchGuard Fireboxes and WatchGuard network layer security solutions have been the most security effective with the lowest TCO of any solution on the market when properly implemented and properly maintained. As with any network layer security solution, the underlying network must first be architected correctly in order to facilitate network layer security, but then an extremely highly skilled network security architect must device, implement, and maintain a network layer security solution in order to achieve efficacy. This is true of any network layer security solution. Few people worldwide have that skill. However, WatchGuard technologies when implemented and supported by a qualified partner are able to deliver that solution very cost-effectively to the SMB space. No other solution can achieve that.

    The WatchGuard Network Security provide a web interface or a client interface, no matter what you approach is but you have two full powerful instrument to manage the firewall with easy interface (web) or with strong security (client). We prefer the usage with client but in fast change can be done in the web interface in a zip

    The support at Avast CloudCare is excellent; the guys are professional and know their product very well. They have helped us (in the latter years of us using the product), on multiple occasions, especially when an upgrade goes wrong. Community support is not as high, but that is to be expected, as other products are much more popular and have much better adoption. All in all, although being an average Antivirus solution, the management console is excellent, and the support the company offers is excellent too.

    I give this rating as a result of almost 20 years of interfacing with WatchGuard technical support. Of all my vendors that I have to deal with WatchGuard is one of the best I have ever dealt with bar none. I have seldom finished a call to them without a solution. If they by chance don't have the solution, they will figure it out and get back to you ASAP as well as update the casefile online. Technical support is available via phone and web portal. It takes a few minutes to create a case online, assign a priority and submit. They get back to you depending on the critical nature of the issue, but you can expect urgent attention for critical and catastrophic issues.

    The training videos are so helpful. They cover all of the aspects of the devices. The cloud is very nice in providing easy-to-access information regarding the health of the devices. I use the cloud for quick access and the PC application for more hands-on access and updates.

    Alternatives Considered

    Avast CloudCare

    Avast CloudCare is less of a memory hog than several other vendors like Norton or Trend. The ease of deployment for 1 or 100 computers is so simple and straightforward.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    WatchGuard Network Security

    We appreciate the WatchGuard Network Security approach to multilevel security with a layered stack. We believe that using multiple vendors' products does not lock WatchGuard into a single mindset when providing security. Over the years WatchGuard has changed some of its constituent vendors to provide better protection at the time. WatchGuard supplies a full stack security offering that is speedy in operation at any pricepoint compared to its competitors.

    Return on Investment

    Avast CloudCare

    • Positive: we have our customers supported better than ever
    • Negative: But not really, we have lost billable time due to our customers having [fewer] virus infections than ever before.
    • We had one incident where we had to credit a customer because the backup failed and did not report correctly and the customer lost some data.
    Matthew Strickland | TrustRadius Reviewer

    WatchGuard Network Security

    • Once deployed the firewall just works
    • We had one that failed, and because it was covered, we got a replacement the following day.
    • The firmware update process takes less time, and it doesn't impact the business at all. We always update our out-of-hours, and we have never had issues.
