WatchGuard Access Points


Introducing the WatchGuard AP300

As threats to wireless connectivity dramatically increase, the question isn’t if you need strong wireless security for your business but how to ensure you have it. Meet the newest member of our family of Secure Wireless Access Points, the AP300.

Advanced technologies that address the latest critical Wi-Fi market demands include:

  • Support for 802.11ac
  • Fast roaming with 802.11 r/k for VoIP connections
  • 3x3 MIMO with three spatial streams capable of delivering up to 1.75 Gbps
  • Client limit, band steering, and fast handover

No matter which AP model you choose:

All WatchGuard wireless access points work in tandem with our WatchGuard Firebox or XTM appliances, extending the powerful UTM capabilities of your firewall to your WLAN, including intrusion prevention, web content filtering, gateway AV, application control, APT blocking, data loss prevention, reputation lookup, and spam blocking.
