Overall Satisfaction with WatchGuard Network Security
I have used Watchguard security appliances and now cloud appliances for the last 22 years. Our current use case has about 14 WatchGuard devices deployed using Watchguard Branch Office VPN at remote sites securing our OT/SCADA infrastructure and 2 devices protecting our main office. Using WatchGuard is a no-brainer. It's cost-effective, and easy to deploy and configure both on-site, and in the cloud. Centralized reporting with Dimension and strong integrated tools along with secure WI-FI and VPN for staff at remote sites.
- Branch Office VPN
- Cloud Deployment

- Centralized Management
- Easier licensing for add on products
- WatchGuard has allowed us to put enterprise-level security at our remote sites in a very cost-effective manner.
- Low cost of management
We make the majority of our WatchGuard purchases through CDW-G. I have been mostly happy with the service provided, It really depends on your account manager and the sales team.
Read the documentation and watch the videos. After one or two you will wonder why you waited.
If you are looking for an OOB solution WatchGuard makes it super easy to get all the licensing. More difficult to get ala carte licensing.

Watchguard is well suited for most instances that require a firewall or security device. We really like the cloud appliance and how easy it was to integrate too. I can't think of a scenario where I would not consider a Watchguard solution, perhaps if advanced routing was required I would consider another option.
