I am working with Wayzon infotech, #60,First Floor, Lourd Doss Grotto Rd, Thomas Nagar, Little Mount, Saidapet, Chennai, Tamil Nadu 600015. The best people with sound knowledge of WatchGuard products and the installation was very short and perfect. As we are A healthcare industry we are working 24 x 7, If we need any more configuration changes to do they are supporting to solve our issues ASAP immaterial of day and time.
We didn't face any implementation issues by the time of installation, It was very smooth and took minimal downtime to install the product and apply the relevant policies for our setup. Same way while installing the High availability box installation also went very smoothly and was made online without any downtime. The policy application and reflection is happening immediately so the implementation was very smooth and safe

The secure VPN configuration is very simple and robust this definitely shows the efficiency of the product.
