As a reseller of WatchGuard, I always work with the client's IT team for product recommendation to implementation. When I need support, WatchGuard tech support provides professional support within hours in most cases. One time I worked with tech support hours to solve the problem continuously until finished. They also support communication with networks using other brands, which was really helpful when you need to set up and maintain multiple network integration projects.

We worked with IT360 from Auckland NZ to size, purchase, and migrate from our old WatchGuard on to the new pair running in our 2 data centers configured as a HA pairing. The migration was smooth and was completed without any issues.

We are a company that provides implementation and services regarding Watchguard Solutions. We rest a lot on Watchguard's excellent support team. They always respond fast and accurately providing a solution as soon as possible.

When we trade in the firewall for the newer model we will also take out the added implementation service. This allows the current config to be backed up, checked for best practice/inconsistencies and rebuilt on the new device. This is always carried out efficiently and allows us to plug and play when migrating devices. Much reccomended.

I purchased them with a partner and they were pretty good. I did the implementation myself, but next time I might have someone do it for me so I can get a better understanding of all the features and ensure proper setup.

We worked with GNS (Guardian Network Solutions) to get ours. The initial setup was done by WatchGuard, so we have not used the GNS support at this point. GNS is good about reaching out to us before expiration and assisted with an upgrade when our old unit reached the end of its life. We are pleased with the partner service.

I worked with the partner in the implementation of the firewall. Their in-depth analysis of our existing IT system, together with the knowledge and experience they possess, greatly helped in the reorganization or optimization of the system's operation, better utilization of IT resources setting up quality protection mechanisms and, ultimately, raising awareness of the importance of network security.

We work with ARYAN for purchases of WatchGuard devices and licenses, they have always been attentive and make sure that the systems we buy work 100% without problems, their recommendations and help with configuration are always professional and flawless, They have low prices and always recommend the licenses and devices with the necessary services and processing power, without the need to spend money that is really needed to do their job well.

We are a Managed Service Provider, so we not only implemented the solution on our network, but we also implement the WatchGuard solutions on business all over the country. Our engineers are cross-trained and the solution was easily adoptable by all of them. We have received no issues or complaints from WatchGuard customers or our engineers.

We are a reseller and implement Watchguard solutions for our customers. Ranging from complete management to managed by customer, supported by us. In the few cases we had to contact Watchguard our selves for either technical or customer support, we have found them to be very willing to assist in a speedy and efficient manner.
