TDR Account Types

There are two types of Threat Detection and Response (TDR) accounts, each with different privileges. Your account type depends on whether you are a WatchGuard partner.

Customer Account

If you are a WatchGuard customer, but not a WatchGuard partner, your TDR account is a Customer account. With your TDR account, you can manage and monitor all Fireboxes and Host Sensors deployed on your network.

Customer accounts can have these user roles: Administrator, Operator, Analyst, and Observer. In a TDR Customer account, the first user account has the Administrator and Operator user roles. All other users have the Operator role.

Service Provider Account

If you are a WatchGuard partner, your TDR account is a Service Provider account. With your TDR Service Provider account, you can manage and monitor Fireboxes and Host Sensors for all customer accounts that you manage. From your account, you can allocate TDR Host Sensor licenses to managed customer accounts.

Service Provider accounts can have these user roles: Administrator (SP) and Operator (SP). In a TDR Service Provider account, the first user has the Administrator (SP) and Operator (SP) user roles. All other user have the Operator (SP) role.
