Overall Satisfaction with WatchGuard Network Security

We use our WatchGuard [Network Security] across our organization's network. It provides great throughput even while security services are enabled. We're also using its VPN capabilities to keep devices protected for our remote team. We love the option for fiber connectivity and have taken advantage of it to bring a fiber connection all the way down to our switches.
  • Easy to configure
  • Configuration is extremely flexible
  • Great security features.
  • Would be nice to see more AI driven traffic monitoring
  • Would be nice to be able to detect suspicious traffic within the network
  • Cloud management is lacking
  • We have achieved 100% uptime.
  • Throughput has allowed our business to continue to aggressively grow.
  • Has kept our network secure.
We did not work with a partner.
Coming from a SonicWall background, there was a little bit of a learning curve with WatchGuard [Network Security]. However, documentation was readily available and easy to understand making implementation nice and smooth. WatchGuard [Network Security] support was also very responsive and eager to help where needed.
The only benefit we saw in our organization is that we didn't have to spend time deciding what features we wanted or didn't want before making a decision.
  • SonicWall Capture Advanced Threat Protection (ATP)
Overall, the two products are very comparable to one another. In the end, it came down to throughput vs cost. WatchGuard [Network Security] came in at around half the cost for the device that provided the amount of throughput that we needed. All of the other features were neck and neck.

WatchGuard's Network Security suite really is a must for any organization big or small. The features are pretty easy to configure and allow for the admin to scale it to the needs of the organization. I really can't think of a scenario where having a solid network security solution would be considered less appropriate.
