About WatchGuard

 

Seattle-based WatchGuard has deployed nearly a million of its integrated, multi-function threat management appliances worldwide, to businesses that range from SMEs to large distributed enterprises. Recognizing an unmet need for a security solution that addresses the rapidly evolving threat landscape, WatchGuard architected its high-throughput, highly scalable, and flexible Fireware® operating system to form the backbone of its products. This platform yields dramatically higher performance at a much lower cost than competitors in environments where multiple security engines are enabled.

 

WatchGuard differentiates itself from competitors through:

  • Scalability with hardware advances: WatchGuard’s use of industry-standard hardware ensures that its product performance scales with processor advances from Intel and Freescale.
  • Best-of-breed technology: WatchGuard’s modular architecture is based on its Fireware operating system, which runs full versions of the industry’s leading third-party scanning engines. This offers best-of-breed security at every price point, and with maximum flexibility to meet the changing threat landscape.
  • Segment-leading manageability: WatchGuard’s policy-based management console provides a single interface to easily configure and control all security engines, with the flexibility to manage network security from anywhere (such as headquarters to branch locations), without having to install management software.
  • Award-winning visibility: The award-winning WatchGuard Dimension™ visibility tool distills oceans of security data into key trends and critical events to quickly and effectively identify potential threats and productivity issues. Operating from any public or private cloud, Dimension requires no installation and runs from any browser.

 

In addition to its Seattle headquarters, WatchGuard has offices throughout North America, Latin America, Europe, and Asia Pacific. WatchGuard’s full line of network security appliances are backed by more than 10,000 dedicated reseller partners—over 2,300 with advanced certification — in 120 countries.

I think WatchGuard is the obvious choice. Hands down - WatchGuard has the most powerful user interface and best tools of any firewall I've ever seen in my career. The stuff that I can do with just a couple clicks with WatchGuard is going to take you hours with other security vendors.

Sean Furman, Founder & CEO, STF Consulting

 

WatchGuard provides better performance with one device than Cisco does with multiple point devices. If you're looking for an all-in-one network security solution – WatchGuard is it. It's nice to have a product that actually performs as advertised.

Aaron Tripp, Help Desk Technician, Tacoma Housing Authority (THA)
