We are a direct partner
As an MSP supporting many clients, having a central management console is essential. It allows us to quickly manage multiple sites and multiple customers from a central location. This has improved the efficiency of staff and reduced the time wastage.
Standardising on the WatchGuard stack has allowed us to increase technician skillsets and allow them to specialise. It has created a consistent security posture across our customer base, and reduced troubleshooting time and errors. This has led to increased employee and client satisfaction.
WatchGuard provides a cost competitive product stack against all their main competitors, in many cases coming in cheaper, with a more impressive feature set. The range of models available allows you to match the right sized appliance to any office.
