WatchGuard Cloud on Your Firebox

WatchGuard Cloud is the cloud-based platform where you can monitor your Firebox. WatchGuard Cloud supports 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.

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. You do not need to paste the Verification Code on the Firebox.

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