Overall Satisfaction with WatchGuard Network Security

We use WatchGuard Firewalls to secure, monitor, and control our internet traffic. WatchGuard firewalls are given us the ability to achieve a more secure network and protect our network from unwanted traffic. One of the business problems WatchGuard Network Security addressed for us was it allowed us to close vulnerable ports on our network that didn't need to be open. These open ports would allow potential unauthorized access to our network and potentially compromise our data. WatchGuard Network Security also allowed us to control what sites our users are able to go to and block sites that could potentially harm our network. WatchGuard's Network Security also allowed us to set up a VPN between us and our remote back site and enabled us to transmit backup data across that VPN in a secure manner. We also use WatchGuard's two-factor authentication for some of our users that need remote access to our network. We were able to set up a VPN for remote access to our system using two-factor authentication.

We worked with ConnectionIT and were very happy with the services. Through the process we were able to do a few zoom meetings with engineers from WatchGuard before our purchase.
This license package was simple and allowed us to know exactly what was included with our license.
