We use WatchGuard devices in our main and satellite office with the network security enabled on both via their Total Security package. They are vital for monitoring traffic coming and going from both sites and ensuring that users are kept safe while doing their jobs and (hopefully) prevent any outages.
  • Feature-rich.
  • Constant development.
  • Great support.
  • Firmware upgrades are currently manual (cant be "set and forget")
  • Takes some learning
  • The web interface still doesnt quite have everything the application offers
I came to my role with WatchGuard already in place and originally planned to drop them and go with another solution. This quickly changed as I learned the features they had, and how it all worked. They have a great feature set and the network security features are phenomenal. We now buy total security suite to ensure we have access to all the various features and, after a little wrangling to get it all enabled and working, it has been a great investment.

Currently, we utilize WatchGuard Network Security as the key component for both of our offices. We also resell and recommend WatchGuard to our clients and support approximately 50-60 deployed scenarios as the solution for network protection and security, through hardware and the integrated security such as DPI, AV, Webblocking and so much more.
  • URL Filtering: Extremely effective for blocking of questionable content and protecting from phishing sites.
  • Antivirus: Our clients have seen far fewer active threats when a WatchGuard Network Security Device is in place.
  • Data Loss Prevention: A valuable tool for our clients who require more security when it comes to metadata and personal data leaving the network.
  • It would be great to have a migration tool to HELP between competitor products to attempt to migrate a configuration so that time and client money is saved when moving into a WatchGuard Network Security deployment.
  • Remote deployment is inconsistent i.e. setting a configuration ahead of time for the device to implement when it powers on and dials home. Would like to see this developed more and with more capability for complexity.
I have and will continue to recommend WatchGuard Network Security to clients large and small. Our business has had no opportunity to say, " You're too small or simple to not benefit from this level of security." WatchGuard has a solution we can confidently offer to even our smallest client with confidence and know we can convey the peace of mind having a WatchGuard Network Security appliance.

We utilize WatchGuard equipment and their Security Suites in our main office, as well as deploying it on-site for all of our IT customers. Our primary role is working with criminal justice agencies, and WatchGuard products serve many of the appropriate needs. Their firewalls are FIPS 140-2 compliant and offer a full range of services that will maintain compliance with federal CJIS and state policies regarding the access and transmission of criminal justice information (CJI).

Their assortment of proxy policies and security services ensure that our criminal justice networks are safe, secure, and controlled. They utilize multiple layers of threat detection to protect their critical/sensitive data. And with many criminal justice networks requiring two-factor authentication for mobile devices, WatchGuard now offers their integrated AuthPoint service, which can easily provide this service to agencies without requiring them to invest in third-party tokens/services to make it happen.
  • WatchGuard AuthPoint allows CJIS-compliant MFA for mobile devices.
  • Layered security services can easily block threats from several different angles.
  • Easy-to-use system manager makes building policies and interpreting them very easy.
  • WatchGuard Cloud features have room to grow. I would love to see it fully replace the need for Dimension or WatchGuard Server Manager.
  • AuthPoint support for third-party tokens (for agencies that already own them) would be a nice addition.
WatchGuard Security Services are very well-suited for our customer environments (criminal justice networks). They're very easy to centrally manage (we have about 45 that we handle). It would, perhaps, be less well-suited for very small environments. Although WatchGuard does provide smaller/less-expensive units, they may be overkill for very small environments or those that do not have to be concerned with regulatory needs.

As a network security architect, it is my job to design NIST SP-800 cybersecurity framework hardened network layer security solutions. These strategies are combined with a comprehensive cybersecurity kill chain plan inclusive of email, network, phone, printer, cloud, server, and endpoint layered defense strategies. As part of the design decision, technologies that consistently have extremely high efficacy while having a low TCO are absolutely essential for this solution to be manageable, effective, and affordable. WatchGuard has been our choice for network layer protection for more than 10 years. We also use their endpoint protection agent technologies and authentication solutions. In doing so, we have been able to deliver high levels of security effectiveness at an affordable price to organizations ranging from one user to 500 users.
  • WatchGuard System Manager and centralized management is the key to low TCO
  • Security solution efficacy is critical. A solution that is only 95% effective is not good enough.
  • Partner support is good and enables us to be able to deliver quality solutions that are consistently functional
  • Partner enablement. WG focuses on the channel as they know that the skill of the integrators is what makes the difference between a default appliance and an effective security solution
  • Partner communications on technical issues. For example the undocumented feature of SDWAN hidden route. There is still no documentation on that.
  • Too infrequent communications about high incidence technical support issues. We do not want to have to be encountering known issues and then having outages or problems that we then have to put in tickets about.
  • Pay attention to your most highly technical partners, not just those that sell a lot of equipment. The highly technical partners can and do provide very usable feedback that can make the products better.
  • WG wants partners to build relationships with people inside WG so we can drive solutions to problems, but too frequently, we get no response to emails sent to the proper internal resources about legitimate issues.
I do not recommend Fireboxes for network layer security in a situation where you cannot run a Firebox as the core network router for all subnets/VLANs because the network is simply too large to be accommodated on a single Firebox appliance. In that case of a network that is too large, I run a network layer security solution on every single Extreme switch in an environment and possibly also at the WAP layer. The Extreme solution is not as good or as flexible, but it does scale larger. The Extreme solution is also too expensive for any environment of less than 500 users. This statement would also be true of any Cisco, Checkpoint, Aruba, or HPE Networking solution. All of those solutions have a very high cost of implementation and maintenance, but they do scale to the size of 10,000+ endpoints.

We use WatchGuard firewalls across the entire organization for all of our clients as a tool in troubleshooting but also much much more. Their Traffic Monitor tool shows real-time network traffic to help us troubleshoot connectivity, security threats, and do general monitoring. I can search in real-time the logs for username, IP address, ports, or even websites. It also shows allowed, blocked or dropped packets in real-time. No more packet captures! This is just one of their amazing tools built into their Total Security Suite stack. Another great tool for us is DNS Watch which checks DNS queries to block malicious sites and redirects those users to educational videos. DNS Watch solves the problem of users clicking on things they shouldn't and also saves us time on not having to educate the end-users on security best practices. Easy of use and their amazing tech support is the icing on the cake. I can't tell you how many times I get into other firewalls and had to dig and dig to find a setting or re-engineer the wheel to fix something simple. Everything is where it intuitively should be in my humble opinion and also their tech support rocks!
  • Layer Security Stack
  • World Class Amazing Tech Support
  • Complex Solutions made to be easily managed
  • The ability to add identification of applications through some type of submission process on the Application Control feature.
WatchGuard can support anything from an SMB to Enterprise. I don't believe there is any business, regardless of size, that shouldn't have a WatchGuard firebox protecting them. You can set up the firewall policies to be as locked down as you want or to allow most things and still remain protected.

We deploy WatchGaurd solutions to many of the customers we manage and monitor, from end to end, for their network infrastructure. The single-pane glass of management via the web portal is a priceless feature, which makes troubleshooting issues a lot easier.
  • Ease of configuration.
  • Ease of deployment.
  • Ease of management.
  • It would nice to have CLI access through the web GUI.
WatchGuard solutions fit into any environment due to all the options of hardware and virtual they provide. No matter how big or how small, you can, with confidence, deploy a WatchGuard solution.

It is currently being used across the entire organization. We have the reporting feature that is set up. We also have the policies on the firewall set up. The business problem that it addresses is making sure that our network is safe and secure. We have reporting to verify what is happening in our network. Also, it can limit the network bandwidth per user as well as show where users transverse on the network and in the Internet. That way we can do things like be proactive with helping them if they click on the wrong websites that might exploit their computer.
  • Their training is phenomenal.
  • The support for their partners is excellent. One of the best companies that I've been involved with to support us.
  • The product is amazing. I've been a partner with other security companies and by far WatchGuard has excellent technology and it's easy to use. But not only is it easy to use but it makes sense when you configure it.
  • Their customer service team is awesome. I recently have to call in and everyone was very professional and very friendly.
  • The training is great. I know they are updating their training videos. I did like how the networking certification had videos that were broken up and condensed into a smaller video instead of a large one. The wireless training had long videos and if it was broken up it would have been easier.
  • Having the coursework ready for the certification.
  • For the training certifications to have the video easier to rewind 10 seconds back or 15 seconds back. Right now there is no button that allows us to rewind the video in that fashion.
I believe that WatchGuard is really good in scenarios where it is a small or medium-sized business. It does a great job in monitoring wireless security as well as internal network security and external network security.

We use WatchGuard Network Security both internally and for corporate clients. The range of security services, product range, configuration flexibility and ROI makes WatchGuard an outstanding choice.
  • Sufficient product range for SMB through large Gov't / Corporate
  • Easy to configure and maintain, reasonable ongoing subscription costs with flexible support options
  • Product availability - in stock or withing days for delivery
  • Top tier support when you need them.
  • Built in wireless devices have occasionally been problematic (ex T35-W series)
  • # 1 would be the ability to copy a base configuration easily from one device to another (policies)
  • Would like to see technical re write exams elongated, three years currently is just to short - min 5 yr would be reasonable, with all the certifications by other vendors this places undue/un-needed burden on the reseller. demand upkeep webinars instead.
In today's quickly evolving security (risk) environment the need for active, secure firewall management and threat protection is really a must in all corporate and small business environments and WatchGuard has a sufficient product range to suit budget and need. About the only place it may be overkill is home based users, unless WatchGuard comes up with a basic home version under $150 USD.

We are using it currently in our own organization as our primary firewall, wireless, and VPN solution. We are also using them for some of our clients with managed services.
  • Enterprise level security.
  • Price-point accommodating for small to medium-sized businesses.
  • Ability to have integrated 2-factor authentication platform.
  • More traditional-style ACL list for firewall rules.
WatchGuard is very well suited to provide true next-gen quality protection for businesses. We also are using it for some of our high-end residential customers to provide visibility to what is taking place over their network. The downside is that they focus specifically on network-security products and do not have other networking devices (switches/routers/etc).

i3 Business Solutions is a technology managed services and security provider in West Michigan. We are a WatchGuard partner using the WatchGuard Dimension Dashboard to monitor or manage over 100 Fireboxes for our clients. The Dimension Dashboard single pane of glass allows us to improve and tighten cybersecurity for clients in a standardized, consistent, and efficient manner.
  • The WatchGuard Firebox flags and prevents bot attempts on clients' network.
  • The WatchGuard Firebox provides layers of protection using best of breed partners to protect clients perimeter.
  • The WatchGuard Firebox can be centrally managed on a single pane of glass or dashboard allowing for centralized and efficient updating of security profiles.
  • With the proliferation of IoT and VoIP, managing network traffic priority and access can be a challenge due to the WatchGuard Firebox' tight security.
The WatchGuard Firebox is excellent for small to medium-size businesses who are looking for a clean user interface and user-friendly UTM - unified threat management to protect their network perimeter.

We are a reseller and we use it as our first line firewall in all our clients as a security and firewall/router.
  • Very intuitive GUI.
  • Dimension server for managing the client's activities and logs is simple and responsive.
  • WatchGuard support both from a re-seller information perspective and from a technical support perspective. We, as Advanced Office Solutions, feel very well supported.
  • Although Dimension Server is great, it is simple. More reporting, more in-depth capabilities, and functions would be helpful. Added trouble reports that are automated and sent to the support agent as an example.
I feel that based on the suites of products that WatchGuard has that there is really no place that does not fit. Cost may be a catalyst for a smaller client, however, we, even then, recommend the investment as no one business escapes Cyber attacks/ers.

- Multiple SMB's. We recommend, manage, and install security (and other) solutions for businesses throughout Western Canada.
- WatchGuard security addresses the current Canadian Federal Government standards for businesses that handle personal client information.
  • Intrusion Detection: Cloud-based and very responsive. It helps stop malicious activity from getting within the small business Local Area Networks.
  • Intrusion Prevention: TDR is a very advanced prevention system that I have not seen an equivalent for with any other vendor.
  • Dimension-based BoVPN: it's very easy to configure, set up, and monitor.
  • Dimension needs to include features that were available in the Management server!
  • The Access Points need to have the ability to manage from the command line (for instance, in the event of firmware update failure from cloud management).
  • When there is an issue with a Firebox update, better communication of that issue would be appreciated (i.e. v12.4 had some issues with Policies not working properly, and we only found this out when experiencing the issue and opening a Case for it).
The configurations required for heavily filtered environments are vastly more complex than for the configurations (in the same environment) for untangling NG. Except for those environments, there are no other scenarios that it would not be suited for.

As an IT consultant for many organizations, deploying WatchGuard gives me the centralized control, access and reporting I need to keep my clients as secure as possible. Dimension Control allows me to centrally control all of my clients border protection devices while also providing me a global view of each endpoint through TDR and Authpoint. Their MSP tools are improving on each release.
  • Centralized management of the entire WatchGuard infrastructure through Dimension control and reporting.
  • Integration of two-factor authentication for both domain and VPN logins.
  • WatchGuard technical support has always been a key point in using their devices.
  • Collective MSP reporting for clients has always been an issue. A more generalized view of an end-user's activity is often called for by my clients for a given end-user. A report that has the ability to remove "background traffic" like Windows updates. My clients would like to see a report along the lines of "user a was on facebook.com for 88 minutes, Spotify for 90" etc...
  • On initial deployment, the free-ware based wireless access points were problematic to the point we threw them away in lieu of another product. To this day, my clients do not want to use/trust WatchGuard wireless AP's. Tying a license to an AP, like Cisco, is why they will never be deployed. The ones in place work, don't need to be reset, and don't have a license tied to them for all of the services offered.
Given the range of devices from simple XTM30 models through M300 and upwards, there are few areas where WatchGuard Network Security as a border protection system is not well suited.

We utilize WatchGuard's Total Security Suite (TSS) to protect our networks from all current threats. We use WatchGuard firewalls with TSS across our entire organization with all protection features enabled, including Reputation Enabled Defense, Threat Detection and Response, Geolocation filtering, web blocking with content filtering, and a nice, new feature known as DNS Watch.
  • Threat Detection and Response to defend against active malware and viruses as well as zero-day threat protection.
  • Web blocking with content filtering is used to prevent employees from going to websites where they will be less productive.
  • DNS Watch is used to prevent employees from accidentally going to websites that could insert a virus onto their computer.
  • I can't think of any at this time.

We utilize WatchGuard across our entire organization to protect our own infrastructure, as well as client, hosted infrastructure. The problems resolved by WatchGuard for us have mainly been high security related issues such as gateway antivirus, spam filter, geolocation and many other security holes that our businesses fave. WatchGuard allows us to provide security at an affordable price.
  • Timely updates.
  • Threat detection.
  • Customer service.
  • The desktop client needs a face lift.
  • Logging is a pain to configure.
  • I’d like to see more price points in between products.
WatchGuard network security, as far as we are concerned, fits in any size business. We deploy to offices of less than 5 employees, and to larges offices of several hundred employees. I cannot speak intelligently enough on the enterprise or large Fortune 500 size organizations, but for the majority of SMBs, WatchGuard works perfectly!

Our WatchGuard firewall is our trusted barrier between us and the outside world. I like the features that help keep us safe from ransomware. The webpage blocking features are nice to keep people from downloading from untrusted sites but those sites can be added to the whitelist. I really like the VPN features, and they allow me to add VPN users with ease.
  • Security
  • VPN tools
  • Ransom ware protection
  • Interface
For our office, it is a great solution providing the security of a full-time robust firewall without having to sign up with a company to host or monitor it all the time. Being a smaller office, we don't have a full-time security staff and WatchGuard gives us the security of a full-time staff.

We use a WatchGuard M500 at our corporate office. We use M370s at two of our branch offices where we keep our phone and backup servers. We use T35s at 12 branch offices, and we use XTM25s at the remaining 5 branch offices. We upgrade and renew in groups, to keep from getting billed for 20 devices at one time. So the biggest challenge is keeping up with renewing subscriptions on which device, and applying the right feature key to the right device.
  • Support is handled particularly well, they are always polite and helpful. They make sure you are happy with the resolution. What helps me the most is you can schedule a time for support to call. I can plan to be at one of our field offices at a certain time and schedule support to call me at that time. instead of me calling them and waiting on hold until a technician is freed up.
  • Webblocker helps me save time blocking undesirable sites with an easy to configure list. Together with Spam blocker and Gateway Anti Virus along with there other apps, WatchGuard helps keep my users safe whether at Corporate headquarters or in a branch office.
  • Feature Keys and the renewing process is bulky and worrisome, especially for 20 or more boxes.
  • Having forgotten a password, it would have been nice if support could have remotely connected and reset password.
We use a variety of WatchGuard fireboxes, some sites the traffic is heaver. Our back up sites receive replicated data. Corporate has several branch office tunnels in play, and some sites just use a web based program to enter its data. WatchGuard provides a device that is well suited for all of our needs.

We use it as our go to for firewall protection at our company and across 99% of our clients. This addresses network security.
  • WatchGuard uses best in breed for their services, which means they do not try to reinvent something that a company is already doing well... they partner with them.
  • Geo location blocking works great.
  • Easy to install and setup.
  • The only con I see may be something getting blocked when you have a policy in place to allow it.
  • WatchGaurd, by default, blocks unless allowed by a policy. This is good, but you just need to educate users and techs to know what they are looking for.
