About Active Host Sensor Licenses

When you activate Threat Detection and Response for a Firebox, or you activate additional Host Sensor licenses, Host Sensors are added to your Threat Detection and Response account in the WatchGuard portal. You can also activate Threat Detection and Response Host Sensor Upgrade license to add more Host Sensor licenses to your account.

To go to the Active Host Sensor Licenses page:

  1. Go to https://www.watchguard.com/ and log in with your WatchGuard account user name and password.
  2. On the Support Center Home page, select My WatchGuard > Manage Products.
    The Manage Products page appears.
  3. Click WatchGuard Threat Detection & Response Active Host Sensors.
    The Active Host Sensor Licenses page appears.

On the Active Host Sensor Licenses page you can:

  • See a list of active Host Sensor licenses for your WatchGuard account
  • Select the region for TDR data storage, if you did not select it when you activated your TDR subscription

Select Your TDR Region

Data for your TDR account is stored in the cloud. The first time you activate a product that includes TDR, you specify the region for storage of your TDR data. The region you specify sets the location of the data center where WatchGuard stores your TDR data. It is not related to the location of your company or networks.

WatchGuard does not have a data center in every region. You might need to select a TDR region that is different from the location of your network.

TDR is included in your Total Security subscription bundle. If you activated a Firebox that includes Total Security before the release of TDR, you did not select a TDR region when you activated your Firebox. Before you can manage TDR, you must select a TDR region. After you select a region for your TDR data, you cannot change the region, and the Region setting is no longer available.

To select the region for storage of TDR data, from the Active Host Sensors page:

  1. From the Region drop-down list, select an available region.
  2. Click Sync to TDR.
    A confirmation dialog box appears.

  1. Click OK to confirm your region selection.
    The Region setting disappears from the Active Host Sensors page.

After you select the region, WatchGuard creates your TDR account.

To manage your TDR account, connect to the Threat Detection and Response web UI:

At the bottom of the Active Host Sensor Licenses page, click Manage TDR.
Or, select My WatchGuard > Manage TDR.

For information about how to get started with TDR, see Quick Start — Set Up Threat Detection and Response in Fireware Help.

Host Sensor Licenses

In the WatchGuard Support Center, on the Active Host Sensor Licenses page, you can see the total number of Host Sensor licenses for your TDR account, and a list of active Host Sensor licenses for your TDR account. An active Host Sensor license is a license that has not expired, it is not the number of Host Sensors that are installed.

To install Host Sensors, or to allocate Host Sensor licenses to managed accounts, you must log in to your TDR account. To log in to your TDR account, in the WatchGuard Support Center select My WatchGuard > Manage TDR.
For information, see About Threat Detection and Response in Fireware Help.

By default, the Active Host Sensor Licenses page shows all Host Sensor licenses activated for Fireboxes in your account.

To find Host Sensor licenses activated for a specific Firebox:

  1. In the Search your activated products text box, type the Firebox serial number, friendly name, or model number.
  2. Click Search.
    The Host Sensors list shows only the Host Sensors for that Firebox.
