Configure ThreatSync Notification Rules

In WatchGuard Cloud, you can configure notification rules to generate alerts and send email notifications for ThreatSync activity. Notification rules make it easier for you to respond to emerging threats on your network and endpoints, and provide awareness of incident changes and remediated threats.

Delivery Methods

For each rule, you can select one of these delivery methods:

  • None — The rule generates an alert that appears on the Alerts page in WatchGuard Cloud.
  • Email — The rule generates an alert that appears on the Alerts page in WatchGuard Cloud and also sends a notification email to the specified recipients.
