Product Details

What is WatchGuard Network Security?

The WatchGuard Firebox family of firewalls offers critical network security solutions for businesses of all types and sizes, including tabletop and 1U rack-mounted appliances to Cloud and virtual firewalls. Firebox appliances deliver critical security services from standard IPS, URL filtering, gateway AV, application control, and antispam, to advanced protections such as file sandboxing, and DNS filtering. High-performance deep packet inspection (DPI) means users can leverage these security services against attacks attempting to hide in encrypted channels like HTTPS. Additionally, every Firebox offers SD-WAN right out of the box for improved network resiliency and performance.

Coming from a SonicWall background, there was a little bit of a learning curve with WatchGuard [Network Security]. However, documentation was readily available and easy to understand making implementation nice and smooth. WatchGuard [Network Security] support was also very responsive and eager to help where needed.

The key point in the implementation of WatchGuard Network Security was the speed and professionalism with which Cstisa partner carried out the work. I can say that it is thanks to that and the quality of WatchGuard Network Security that we continue to use it today. The partner was a good key in this implementation.

I would recommend [identifying] nodes, network and service first. Then set up a basic connection with maximum security. Start to add nodes and allow only necessary service one at a time. Use only a specific port or node while setting up a policy, be extra careful when you need to use an alias for interfaces like external, trusted, and optional.

We were already familiar with WatchGuard technologies prior to implementing them. After we became a Silver Partner, we made it our company standard for firewalls to protect client's infrastructure. We were extremely satisfied with implementing new features in the Total Security Suite after learning how to configure them. They provided labs that we could go through to figure out how to configure all of the features correctly.

Always have in mind what you need to implement, and remember that these solutions provide way more than expected, so you have to be open-minded and try to implement new security strategies and policies to pursue a great security.

The solution is very easy to implement once you understand their terminology and how the solution works. Once the devices are deployed, it is rare that we have to touch the device again, except in the instance that the customer needs a policy change.

WatchGuard Network Security offers varied methods of implementation. Their devices are very easy to set up manually, and for a more automated setup where many devices need to be deployed, they have different offerings like RapidDeploy (prepopulate a config for a specific device in the portal), registering the device's serial number to manage it through cloud services on first boot (including the option to populate a USB stick with basic interface setup if required) and the ability to run your own Management Server and register to be deployed serial numbers, so the device connects to your own hosted management server on first boot.
