Overall Satisfaction with WatchGuard Network Security

Our WatchGuard Firewall is used by our entire organization. It addresses problems such as: protection from intrusive and destructive viruses, protecting our files from Crypto Locker, allowing us to Geo Block countries that are known virus factories. It also allows us to remote in to some of our customers and help them remotely with PC issues.
  • Virus Blocking
  • Spam Blocking
  • Geo Filtering
  • Cost
  • Version of their Firewall for Home Use
  • Protection from Crypto Locker Viruses
  • Geo Filtering out known virus factory countries
Well suited when a compay's files are of utmost important to them, where the customer is vulnerable to cyber attacks, where there is a big organization and you want to limit employees' access to the open internet.

It is less appropriate in a smaller corporate environment, the cost per employee would be very high
