Patented Wireless Security

Our Cloud-managed access points have built-in Wireless Intrusion Prevention System (WIPS) to help ensure you have the protection you need. Using patented Marker Packet technology, WatchGuard WIPS defends your airspace 24/7 from unauthorized devices, man-in-the-middle and denial-of-service attacks, rogue APs and more – and with close to zero false positives. With WatchGuard Cloud-managed APs running WIPS, IT pros can deliver the high performance wireless connectivity their users demand, without compromising on security. Learn more >

Multi-User MIMO

Your Wi-Fi will show no signs of slowing down with MU-MIMO allowing the AP to serve multiple client devices downstream simultaneously. This decreases the time each device must wait for a transmission from the AP and speeds up your network. Considering a typical small to midsize business (SMB) has at least 50+ devices including smartphones, tablets, and laptops, it’s vital to be able to utilize as much of the Wi-Fi frequency spectrum as efficiently as possible.

Flexible Management Options

WatchGuard offers two management scenarios to meet the needs of SMBs and distributed enterprises. You can manage any of our access points with either a Firebox via the Gateway Wireless Controller with lightweight feature set, or with WatchGuard’s Wi-Fi Cloud. And with the Wi-Fi Cloud you get an expanded set of features including strong WIPS security, social-enabled captive portals, and location-based analytics for optimal business insights. For ultimate peace of mind, rely on a Firebox UTM-protected network with WatchGuard Wi-Fi Cloud-managed APs to realize the full marketing and security potential of a Cloud-managed access point solution.
