Every WatchGuard Firebox customer can use WatchGuard System Manager (WSM) to configure and manage a single device without a WSM license. To take advantage of the centralized management capabilities of WSM, a WatchGuard System Manager license is required. WSM licenses are included with the purchase of most Firebox devices. With a WSM license, you can:
- Install and use the WatchGuard Management Server
- Centrally manage multiple Firebox devices
- Use drag-and-drop VPN configuration and management
WSM License Types
There are two types of WSM licenses that enable you to centrally manage your WatchGuard Firebox devices.
All licenses require activation prior to use.
