WatchGuard Dimension


WatchGuard Dimension™ - Oceans of data instantly become Security Intelligence


Within six months after its first release, WatchGuard Dimension was chosen by readers of Network Computing as the Best New Product of the Year and customer demand as well as industry-wide recognition has been growing rapidly. Why? Because WatchGuard Dimension brings big data visibility to network security, without the associated cost and complexity.

From the board room to the branch office, critical decisions about network security often need to be made quickly and with limited information. How can you ensure that your decisions are timely, effective, and better informed? You need Visibility.

WatchGuard Dimension™ is a cloud-ready network security visibility solution that comes standard with WatchGuard's flagship Unified Threat Management and Next Generation Firewall platform. It provides a suite of big data visibility and reporting tools that instantly identify and distill key network security threats, issues and trends, accelerating the ability to set meaningful security policies across the network.

Use WatchGuard Dimension to monitor and gain critical and timely insights about network security, in real-time, from anywhere and at any time, easily and quickly

Start with the Big Picture

A picture is worth a thousand words or traffic logs! Get a high-level, aggregated “big picture” view of network activity that pinpoints top threats and trends, active policies and traffic patterns, and correlated views of top users and applications.

Tap into Visible Insights

See network activity presented visually, in real-time, in intuitive and interactive dashboards and reports. The elegant visualizations make it easy to identify potential threats, monitor Internet usage and to gain critical insights about related traffic trends.

  • See, at a glance, who is consuming the most bandwidth, if there are unusual traffic patterns, and what are the most-visited websites.
  • Easily pivot, drill-down, and filter to get exactly the info you need, when you need it. Then, you can drill all the way down to individual log data that reveals key details

Spot Patterns, Make Better Decisions

Choose from over 100 comprehensive reports, with the ability to schedule reports for email delivery to key stakeholders – from C-level executives and IT Directors, Network Managers and Security Analysts, to HR and Department Managers. Special reports are available for PCI and HIPAA compliance.

Then Take Action with Dimension Command

Dimension Command is our suite of management tools for WatchGuard Dimension. With it, IT pros have access to a host of network control features including one-click configuration changes, the ability to jump back to previous configurations, direct access to individual appliances through a web UI, and VPN management tools.
