Zero-Touch Configuration of Firebox Appliances

Whether you are deploying security at multiple locations as a customer or as a managed security service provider (MSSP), you can forget sending your network administrators onsite for configuration. WatchGuard makes it easy to deploy security right from your office. WatchGuard RapidDeploy is a powerful, cloud-based deployment and configuration tool that comes standard with WatchGuard Firebox appliances. All you have to do is power up the appliance and connect it to the Internet. The rest can be taken care of remotely from any location.

Quick and Simple Deployment

RapidDeploy provides three simple methods for remotely deploying configurations to WatchGuard Firebox appliances.

1. RapidDeploy Quick Start

Use RapidDeploy Quick Start to automatically create configuration files with WatchGuard’s recommended policies and settings.

2. Upload a RapidDeploy configuration file to the website

Remotely configure a single Firebox by uploading a RapidDeploy configuration file to the WatchGuard website.

3. RapidDeploy from the Management Server

Configure one or more Firebox appliances at one time by using RapidDeploy from your Management Server.

“RapidDeploy saves us a lot of time and expense. Replacing a firewall does not mean that one of us has to hop on a plane and fly halfway around the world. The centralized configuration is ideal for us and has yet to display the slightest weakness.”

René Clausing, Head of IT, IKN GmbH
