Overall Satisfaction with WatchGuard Network Security

We are a Managed Service Provider. We have a range of companies that we manage. We recommend them to use WatchGuard for their network security. A few of the companies that we have set up to use WatchGuard have over 200 users each. We have installed site-to-site VPN for their multi-site access and installed Panda for their local users.

Pros

  • Site-to-site VPN setup.
  • SSL VPN client for local users.
  • Panda AV friendly UI.
  • WatchGuard support for resourceful problem solving.

Cons

  • The Main Firewall GUI could have more statistical dashboard.
  • SSL VPN for Mac could be easier to install.
  • Better integration with other venders.
  • Protecting the environment from hackers and ransomware attacks.
  • Protects your resources from being vulnerable to the public.
  • Saving time and money by keeping the network production up and running all the time and preventing downtimes from malicious attacks.
We as ICTechnology are a partner for WatchGuard purchase and resell to our clients.
It has thorough and multiple steps to completely set up, but nothing good comes easy.
Yes sure. It makes it easier to implement as a package for our client companies. We don't have to purchase many licenses for certain features we need or install for our clients. Saving time and money.
It goes shoulder-to-shoulder with those other vendors that we have used. In some cases cheaper to implement and easier to set up.
