Overall Satisfaction with WatchGuard Network Security

Used firewall to protect against threats and to provide user access to VPN. The product protects the internal network and frequently stops intrusions, which are easy to report on. Filtering web traffic by category and application is easy and it is possible to set up incoming rules to proxy an internal web server.
  • Web filtering
  • Intrusion protection
  • Threat protection including zero day
  • DNS level filtering
  • Cloud management and reporting as standard
  • Occasionally HTTPS inspection causes issues that can be difficult to track down
  • No "always on" VPN support
  • Not sure but we have not had a serious security breach
Makes it easy to renew on a yearly or longer basis.

Excellent business firewall which will work on any size of the network, with all the intrusion protection and web blocking features that are expected of this type of product. Also comes with some bonuses such as the Access Portal and DNS filtering, and the cloud service is especially good as it negates the need for extra servers on-site to store logs.
