Wi-Fi joins WatchGuard Cloud with Wi-Fi 6 Access Points

WatchGuard is excited to announce the release of Wi-Fi 6 access points and centralized management of Wi-Fi in WatchGuard Cloud.

We have been busy building a new Wi-Fi management platform integrated directly into WatchGuard Cloud. With the introduction to the new simplified management platform, we will be introducing a new line of Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) access points. These access points, explicitly designed for management in WatchGuard Cloud, will bring excellent performance and more security to network environments of all shapes and sizes while enabling rich integration to AuthPoint, WatchGuard's endpoint solutions, Firebox, and Wi-Fi, all in one centralized platform. Everyone can simplify daily network and security tasks by deploying and supporting WatchGuard's portfolio of products from one central location.

The following are some key benefits included in the Wi-Fi launch:

  • Dedicated Wi-Fi 6 Hardware: provides industry-leading performance and security enhancements designed to be managed directly from WatchGuard Cloud.
  • Centralized Management in WatchGuard Cloud: consolidates your management to one Cloud management platform with familiar workflows and a single vendor for support.
  • Simplified management: supporting zero-touch deployment of wireless networks to distributed enterprise or remote workers, WatchGuard Cloud is designed for quick deployment while it simplifies day-to-day tasks.
  • Remote Access Point: a feature inside Wi-Fi in WatchGuard Cloud is allowing administrators to deploy an access point for remote workers and secure their connection back to the corporate office over an IKEV2 VPN with no software required on the local machine.

WatchGuard Cloud eliminates the need for any physical or virtual infrastructure requirements and enables dependable and secure wireless services
