Overall Satisfaction with WatchGuard EPDR

Adaptive Defense 360 is a very complete product that addresses all our needs. It offers the best security level available at the moment and is very easy to manage. If you require a more complex setup, Adaptive Defense 360 is up for the job as well. Also reporting possibilities and remote management via the cloud portal is a BIG added value. Combined with a very easy to talk to distributor channel, WatchGuard is the best choice you can make!
  • Security/Protection level
  • Easy to manage (install, config, etc.)
  • Lots and lots of possibilities to exactly match your needs
  • Individual recovery of unused licenses would be nice
  • Less time needed to follow up on endpoint security
  • No more security breaches since Adaptive Defense 360 has been implemented ([reducing management] time and [improving] reputation)
No we didn't, we are a partner :-)
Only having to access one portal to manage everything is always a big added value.
With Watchguard EDPR you can do this: one portal to manage all settings, devices, reports, ...
This saves you a lot of time, not having to wonder which website to open, which account/password to use ...
As everything is on the same portal, the next thing to review, check, change, whatever is very near
That is easy: since we implemented WG EDPR there has been zero security breaches. And since all our Security Solutions are coming from the same provider: no more conflicts between products from different vendors.
We used basic Panda Endpoint Protection before, going to Adaptive Defense 360 was a logic[al] step to make. You keep using a familiar product, but with a whole new set of added features and possibilities + increased protection level.

Do you think Watchguard Endpoint Security delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Watchguard Endpoint Security's feature set?


Did Watchguard Endpoint Security live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Watchguard Endpoint Security go as expected?


Would you buy Watchguard Endpoint Security again?


Writing this review takes more time than managing Adaptive Defense 360. Does that say enough?
I can only imagine one scenario where you wouldn't want to use Adaptive Defense 360: you have a computer which will never access a network or internet and you'll never connect an external storage device. In any other case, you have to get this protection if you want your computer/network to be well protected.
