Overall Satisfaction with WatchGuard Network Security

It is being used as our firewall for the whole organization. It helps protect access to our systems and databases as everything is kept locally. Our organization is quite small, with 5 employees total, however, we handle a lot amount of sensitive data, and having that protection in place helps us protect that information.
  • Blocks potentially dangerous incoming access.
  • Blocks potentially dangerous websites.
  • Allows us to control data sharing with outside databases.
  • Ease of use when needing to make changes to the controls, it is not always that obvious.
  • It has a positive impact on the overall business as we do not need to worry about external threats obtaining access to our systems.
I did not work with a WatchGuard Network Security partner.
Device was shipped to us and we had to hire a local IT expert to assists us in the installation.
It allows us to keep the whole process simple. The simplicity enables us to focus on other aspects of the firm's operations rather than having to overly commit time to the individual routines that it performs.
It is a solid source of firewall protection and a networking provider. The product is appropriate for the size of our firm but not sure if they have products more suited for mid to large-sized firms. This product is well suited for firms that deal with sensitive client data.
