I worked with Insight for purchase. I cannot recommend Insight enough. They were willing to meet with me and took the time to find our needs. Then they worked tirelessly to get me the best price on this item. I went back to them for additional Watchguard purchases as well. As they are always willing to get the best price and to make sure I am able to get what I need to do my job.

We are a WatchGuard partner that does resell, however, we typically include full configuration and support with products sold. We don't commonly sell just an appliance without our value-added services. Our services include initial configuration (Migration of existing network), updates, troubleshooting, and activation of security services, sometimes sold as part of a FaaS (Firewall as a Service) package.

I have installed in past setups with WG partner, lately installations and updates have been managed and operated by myself. WG partner seems to have basic knowledge implementions and basic diagnostic, but after that I figured that we are on our own here. So needed more practice and little try and error

We used a long-standing network partner, 'faIT,' based in Solihull, Birmingham, UK. The team is excellent in their services and support, swift to react, knowledgeable, and fairly priced. I cannot recommend them enough.

We have never worked with a partner on the rollout as we have many years of experience of the units and the offering. We can easily adapt a unit for the client's requirements without another partner being involved.

We sourced WatchGuard from our own research. We talked directly with WatchGuard on the specifics of the technology options and models around. We procured, installed, configured, and implemented the technology ourselves in-house.

I have WatchGuard fireware certification made a few years ago, so I had already made deployments in the past as a third party in companies, which allowed me to autonomously deploy the complete solution in the 3 units of our company, from firewall rule configurations, VPN between equipment, even access control rules and mobile VPN.

I am working with Wayzon infotech, #60,First Floor, Lourd Doss Grotto Rd, Thomas Nagar, Little Mount, Saidapet, Chennai, Tamil Nadu 600015. The best people with sound knowledge of WatchGuard products and the installation was very short and perfect. As we are A healthcare industry we are working 24 x 7, If we need any more configuration changes to do they are supporting to solve our issues ASAP immaterial of day and time.
