Overall Satisfaction with WatchGuard Network Security

Everything from the small desktop Firebox T series up to the rackmount M series that we have in place at all our managed network has worked flawlessly.

To effectively deploy WatchGuard, I recommend a four-part approach. - Preparing for firewall system deployment - Configuring your firewall system to reflect your security policy - Testing your firewall system to ensure it performs according to your specifications - Deploying the correctly configured firewall system appliance.
Increasingly, organizations are connecting to the Internet to establish a business and
electronic commerce presence and to access information rapidly. When your
organization's networks are connected to the Internet without adequate security measures
in place, you become vulnerable to attacks from external adversaries. Without firewalls,
you will be unable to prevent many forms of undesirable access to your networks,
systems, and information assets. T Giving the customer a single item that secures the entire network it's a plus.
Cisco: Watchguard is easier to configure and manage also less expensive. Fortinet: Watchguard has a better policy management GUI. Sonicwall: Watguard Client VPN is great, and works for PC, Mac, and non-IOS devices as well.

It's a great all-around firewall, works for SOHO and Enterprise scenarios. As the digital landscape grows more complex due to more devices, users, and applications crossing through the network perimeters especially due to the growing volume of IoT and end-user devices and less overall centralized control from IT and security teams, companies are becoming much more vulnerable to cyberattacks, WatchGuard is your solution.
