Overall Satisfaction with WatchGuard Network Security

In my organization, WatchGuard Network Security is used to efficiently control the use of our network and to be able to deliver under internet policies in the safest way for all our users. We apply application control policies, bandwidth management, and control via navigation proxy. In this way, we avoid improper use in our organization of internet resources.
  • Internet packet filtering.
  • Application policy control
  • navigation control through proxy.
  • Should improve control of who or what consumes the bandwidth.
  • must improve to know which devices are connected to the network.
  • over the years we have used WatchGuard Network Security our perimeter security is very secure.
  • The costs for this tool have been well spent knowing that it has kept our entire network secure.
For the purchase and implementation, we work hand in hand with Cstisa. At the moment we have found a very professional partnet and it always goes hand in hand with any questions or problems that arise using WatchGuard Network Security. I can say that I am very satisfied with the work that Cstisa has done.
The key point in the implementation of WatchGuard Network Security was the speed and professionalism with which Cstisa partner carried out the work. I can say that it is thanks to that and the quality of WatchGuard Network Security that we continue to use it today. The partner was a good key in this implementation.
I must say that licensing prices should be improved a bit to make them more attractive to more customers. Regarding packet filtering, I must say that WatchGuard performs very well in that function. In the policies that I have created, I have not had a problem, it has worked very well for me.
SolarWinds Network Firewall Security Management vs WatchGuard Network Security. We tried to apply the other solution but it was very complicated and had many requirements to work. Unlike WatchGuard Network Security. Everything was very easy to understand and use, a very comfortable tool compared to the one mentioned above which I do not recommend.

In my own experience, WatchGuard Network Security is very good at creating packet filtering and application control policies. In this way, correct management of the internet and the applications that access it can be carried out without being always concerned about their control at all times. With WatchGuard Network Security, if you have a good organization of your policies, you can be working very calmly. In what scenario do I consider that if they should improve it is to be able to verify which devices and on which web pages my bandwidth is being consumed. Being able to take quick measures to solve a situation of that magnitude is WatchGuard Network Security should improve a lot.
