Overall Satisfaction with WatchGuard Network Security

Every day I help my customers and companies to increase their corporate security by implementing the security solutions offered by WatchGuard and improving my product knowledge to increase my deployment and configuration capabilities. I manage customers centrally thanks to the MSSP platform offered by WatchGuard and I understand every day how to protect the work environment.
  • UTM Firewall
  • Perimetral protecion
  • Endpoint security
  • Central management
  • Central management could be improved
  • A service that permits to have a list of sites, domains, and IPs of public services, like Microsoft O365 and others, for use it into a policy for a permit for example for users to surf only on this site or services.
  • log monitor cab be improved with the possibility to add more filters with "AND" or "OR" logical operators, now is possible only one filter
  • I expect that Watchguard implement a new SD-WAN where it is possible to use two or more WANs and have two or more BOVPN tunnels up and active simultaneously like another brand (example force point)
  • Less time needed to manage policies
  • Less time to find user browsing problems
  • speed of adaptation to business needs
No, I an a Security partner
simple, fast and effective
When we sell a WatchGuard solution we have clear what are licenses for [having] the features we need. Licensing is there clear and simple
WatchGuard UTM firewall is easier and faster to use and this helps a lot when you have problems and need to do troubleshooting. Panda 360 defender is as simple as Cortex XDR but the console is more intuitive to me.

Would you buy WatchGuard Network Security again?


WatchGuard is well suited for perimetral protection and for the ease of implementing rules. WatchGuard is a little weak in the BOVPN tunnel because although there are multi wan internet connections, there is only one tunnel up at the time. so if a failure on wan happens, it loses more packets on the BOVPN until the second tunnel switches on.
