Available Now: WatchGuard Remote Access Point Feature

Wi-Fi Cloud User,

Organizations around the world have taken another look at how they run their business. With the exponential growth of remote workers due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some companies have adopted a remote/hybrid work model even when things get back to normal.  

What does this mean for IT administrators? They need a way to easily connect users back to corporate data with a little administrative effort as possible, while the solutions stay transparent to the end user. But most importantly it must be secure.  

WatchGuard introduces the ability to deploy Cloud-managed access points (AP) that tunnel traffic back to corporate resources based on the SSID an end-user is connected to. With WatchGuard’s Wi-Fi Cloud management, you can easily manage your Wi-Fi no matter where it is installed.
