Add Geolocation Actions in WatchGuard Cloud

Applies To: Cloud-managed Fireboxes

Geolocation is a security service that enables the Firebox to detect the geographic locations of connections to and from your network. For cloud-managed Fireboxes, you can enable and configure Geolocation to block access to and from specific locations.

Add a Geolocation Action

The default Geolocation action does not block any countries. You can configure multiple Geolocation actions and assign a specific action to each policy.

For the Geolocation service to apply to traffic through the Firebox, it must also be enabled in firewall policies. For information about policy settings, see Configure Security Services in a Firewall Policy.

To add a geolocation action:

  1. Select Configure > Devices.
  2. Select a cloud-managed Firebox.
    Status and settings for the selected Firebox appear.
  3. Select Device Configuration.
    The Device Configuration page displays the WatchGuard Cloud security services.
  4. Click the Geolocation tile.
    The Geolocation page opens.
