Device Folders

In WatchGuard Cloud Device Manager, you can create up to ten levels of folders to organize your Fireboxes. Each folder can contain Fireboxes, folders, or both. Folders help you to see status and summarized data for groups of Fireboxes.

For example, if you have Fireboxes at several geographic locations, you can create a folder for each location. This enables you to open the folder to see just the Fireboxes at that location, and to see summary status and aggregated reports for those Fireboxes.
