Start an Endpoint Security Trial

The trials available for an account you manage in WatchGuard Cloud depend on the licenses installed and any trials already completed. Accounts with an existing term or subscription license can start these 30-day trials:

  • If you have WatchGuard EPP, you can start a trial of WatchGuard EPDR.
  • If you have WatchGuard EDR, you can start a trial of WatchGuard EPDR.
  • If you have WatchGuard EPDR, you cannot start a trial of another endpoint security product.

Your operator role determines what information you can see and what actions you can take within your own account or managed accounts. Only operators with Owner or Sales roles can start a trial. For more information, see About Operators.

After you start the trial, you can install the client software on up to 25 endpoint devices (WatchGuard EPP) or 100 endpoint devices (WatchGuard EDR and WatchGuard EPDR).

To add a trial, from WatchGuard Cloud:

  1. From Account Manager, select Overview.
  2. Select Administration > Trials.

  1. In the Account column, click the toggle to enable the trial for an account.
    The Add Trial dialog box opens.

  1. From the Product list, select the endpoint product you want to evaluate.
  2. Click Add.
    The Status column changes from Never Tried to In Progress. The 30-day trial period begins when you add the trial license to an account. When a trial expires, all endpoint security product trials are unavailable for 90 days.

The trial can take up to two minutes to become available. Select Monitor > Endpoints or Configure > Endpoints to open the web UI for your endpoint security trial product.
