AuthPoint is Now Available as Monthly Subscription

Starting this week, we are excited to offer our partners and customers AuthPoint as a monthly subscription in the WatchGuard FlexPay program.

WatchGuard FlexPay enables partners to purchase products according to their business needs. The FlexPay program includes all our payment options: pre-paid annual licenses, pay-as-you-go MSSP Points, and monthly subscriptions. 

The AuthPoint Subscription is invoiced monthly based on usage. As a software product, it is easy to enable and manage both through the distributor marketplace and in WatchGuard Cloud. The steps for partners to enable are simple:

  1. Place an order on a distributor marketplace for an AuthPoint Subscription License that is a $0 SKU and complete checkout
  2. Add/manage AuthPoint users in WatchGuard Cloud at next login (the license will already be auto activated with no allocation limit)
  3. WatchGuard will issue invoices through the distributor on the 1st of each month for the total active Subscription users across the partner's cloud account hierarchy

Currently, AuthPoint monthly subscriptions are available in the U.S. through SYNNEX. We are working with our distribution partners around the world to bring this option to broader geographic markets.
