WatchGuard Cloud on Your Firebox

Applies To: Locally-managed Fireboxes

WatchGuard Cloud is the cloud-based platform where you can centrally monitor all of your Fireboxes. WatchGuard Cloud supports monitoring of Fireboxes that run Fireware v12.0 or higher.

Total Security Suite and Basic Security Suite include a license for WatchGuard Cloud. To make sure your Firebox has the WatchGuard Cloud license, synchronize the feature key. For more information, see About Firebox WatchGuard Cloud Licenses.

This topic describes how to add a Firebox to WatchGuard Cloud for monitoring. You can also add a Firebox to WatchGuard Cloud as a cloud-managed device. For more information, see Firebox Management in WatchGuard Cloud.

Add the Firebox to WatchGuard Cloud

Before you can enable WatchGuard Cloud on the Firebox, you must add the Firebox to your WatchGuard Cloud account. When you add the Firebox to WatchGuard Cloud, you copy a Verification Code that you paste into the Firebox configuration. The Verification Code is unique to each Firebox and expires after 30 days.

If your Firebox has a TPM (Trusted Platform Module) chip, and runs Fireware v12.5.3 or higher, the Firebox uses TPM to register with WatchGuard Cloud.

Firebox T10, T30, T50, T70, M200, M300, M400, M500, M440, M4600, and M5600 models do not have a TPM chip.

For an active/passive FireCluster, you must always paste the verification code into the Firebox configuration, regardless of Firebox model.
