2019 NSS Labs Next Generation Firewall Group Test

WatchGuard Earns Recommended Rating from NSS for High Security Efficacy and Low Total Cost of Ownership

For the third consecutive year, WatchGuard has achieved a “Recommended Rating” in the NSS Labs Next Generation Firewall Group Test. In the new report for 2019, WatchGuard earned high security effectiveness and low total cost of ownership, and is one of the only two products to block 100% of evasions.

All WatchGuard Firebox appliances in the UTM and NGFW family run the same Fireware operating system and security services, and thus benefit from the same efficacy, stability, performance and total cost of ownership strengths. Engineered for midsize and distributed enterprises that are struggling to effectively and affordably secure networks in the face of explosive bandwidth rates, encryption traffic, video use, and connection speeds, WatchGuard delivers total protection and visibility that is easy-to-deploy and manage.
