Overall Satisfaction with Adaptive Defense 360 / WatchGuard EPDR

We use Adaptive Defense 360 [/ WatchGuard EPDR] to protect our employees' laptops and internal servers. The native Cloud Console allows us to easily deal with laptops outside from the perimeter without opening internal servers from external. The defense level is high, and we can manage anti-malware, firewall, and URL filtering from a single console. It is easier for us to manage the environment.

Pros

  • Central cloud console
  • Low resource impact on protected systems
  • High level of protection
  • Comprehensible management console

Cons

  • Light URL filtering
  • Same password to uninstall and unprotect the local admin console
  • More integrated deployment method
  • No internal server management
  • No firewall publication rules to implement
  • Easier to manage than most other solutions
The management console is easier to apprehend. The product integrates Firewall when BitDefender does not. The cloud console manages our WatchGuard firewalls, multi-factor authentication (AuthPoint), and WiFi infrastructure. The reports are better [than] BitDefender's [reports].

Did implementation of Watchguard Endpoint Security go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Watchguard Endpoint Security again?

Yes

The management console is easy to apprehend. The local agent is light and effective—no need to interact more than necessary. We can manage several security bricks from one console.
We removed internal security servers and decreased potential threats. Our security was already centrally managed, so we did not have a huge change. We [could just] remove additional firewall and URL filtering software.
Adaptive Defense 360 [/ WatchGuard EPDR] is easy to apprehend with a comprehensive management cloud console. It can protect Windows, Mac, and Linux systems. It brings additional functions like firewall, URL filtering, hard drives encryption, and zero-day protection. It's quite easy to install and manage, even for computers outside the perimeter. The solution is only cloud-based, so it is not possible to implement internal scan servers [as] we may use for VDI or servers protection, [for] example.
