I Trust WatchGuard Firefox

5,0 vor 6 Monaten

Kommentare: After using it for 11 years, I cannot be happier than I am with WatchGuard Firebox. I cannot praise the product enough.

Vorteile:

Choosing the right model is easy when comparing datasheets. Choosing from simple subscription options with bundled solutions makes the choices easy offering great protection at a fraction of competitors. The built in and easy to setup VPN, along with Site to Site VPN's, and a basket full of security options makes the choice clear.

Nachteile:

There was a bit of a learning curve in the beginning when I started using Firebox devices in 2012. Taking WatchGuard training and becoming certified helped tremendously with learning how to take full advantage of the fireboxes capabilities.

Kommentare: Watchguard has been our best ally in helping us defend and take care of our infrastructure, whenever we need its help it responds as quickly as possible, I always find a way to do what I need.

Nachteile:

I don't have any complaints, every time watchguars response me with the best solution.

Thank You for this great product

Kommentare: It is a great product, with a great pool of features.

Vorteile:

Most products in the market offer about the same features, we'd like from WGF its web interfase and simplicity of use.

Nachteile:

Really it is not a issue, but some interfase minor miss-usability such as NetWorkDiscovery... it would be nice to feature some thing like, Discover Network devices and click a device to manage it like adding its MAC to the Reservation Pool or view its current connections... I mean to integrate all this information a funcionalities that today are all of them in different screens or menus

Best product on the market for this sector.

5,0 vor 4 Wochen Neu

Kommentare: I like them and due to their ease of use will continue to do this. I have used these for about 22 years and as long as you update them and keep the hardware current I have yet to have a break in.

Vorteile:

Ease of use...ease of upgrading and transferring custom settings. I was able to update to a new model and transfer my settings in 5 minutes.

Nachteile:

I wish the EOL was a longer period of time. WatchGuard EOL's are short and I know the hardware is not EOL and would work fine for a longer period. They limit it with software. which I wish they would not do.

Firebox features & reliability

5,0 vor 6 Monaten

Kommentare: EXCELLENT! Once I understood how to set up the boxes, it was easy to maintain the Corporate network. I set up the Firewalls with minimum effort, and added more later to refine the security for the company. I've set up others, and while they are easier, the Fireboxes have all the features you would ever need to protect your environment.

Vorteile:

The ease of which I can set it up, the VPN reliability, Speed that it works at. It saved us through the Pandemic. We have been using Watchguard products since 2009, and rely on them 100%. They're simply outstanding for what they are.

Nachteile:

The manual is about 2000 pages and took me about a month to absorb, but once I finished, I know much more than I ever knew about security, and setting up Corporate tunnels and VPN's.

Support is amazing. Very quick to assist as well as go above and beyond what they normally do.

Reliable product for SMB

4,0 vor 3 Monaten

Kommentare: The products are reliable and the failure rate is really low.
As a campus firewall it is more than fine. It is losing some competitiveness by comparing it to other competitors when installed as a perimeter firewall

Vorteile:

Simplicity of use and ease of operation. The hardware is affibable and diagnostics in case of problems quite simple. The configuration is the same for all models, and the continuity between hardware and software is excellent

Nachteile:

In my opinion, development has lost some steps in recent years. There is still a lack of clear level 7 policy management and a lack of counters to understand which policies are being used or not. The new cloud console is not ready and not a viable path for large entities

WatchGuard is a great firewall

5,0 vor 3 Monaten

Kommentare: Its a solid firewall. Doesn't have 2 or 3 or even 4 versions of "current" Firmware due to many bugs (looking at you Fortigate!).
Tech support is very good and responsive when you need it.

Vorteile:

Easiest firewall policy editor around (still could be even more intuitive) vs. the competitors.

Nachteile:

Would like the following features added: * Speed Test right from the firewall. * More granularity to viewing packets in the Traffic Monitor * Logging of firewall policies to be enabled by default * Recommended settings to be highlighted or chosen for you by default

Very good firewall for the money

4,0 vor 6 Monaten

Kommentare: Overall I am happy with the product and will continue to use them into the future.

Vorteile:

The firebox is easy to deploy and configure, easy to support and comes at a good price point. The hardware is reliable and dependable.

Nachteile:

The only issue I have with the WatchGuard Firebox is setting up Multicast routing across VLANs, but I am working with support on this.

WG is truly a mixed bag

4,0 vor 6 Monaten

Kommentare: Same as above, really. They’re a bit more expensive than some of the competition, like Sonicwall and Fortinet, but build quality is outstanding. The support experience is derisory.

Vorteile:

These appliances are well built and last a long time. There is also a high aesthetic appeal because of the bright red coloring.

Nachteile:

WG technical does and always has left a lot to be desired and I’ve been a partner for ~16 years, so I know what I’m talking about here. They take longer than they should to get back to you and “solutions” are half-baked and agents are often not very warm and inviting. The support experience feels rushed.

Effective Firewall Solution

5,0 vor 6 Monaten

Kommentare: They have been up and running for many years. Vulnerability tests have shown how effective they are.

Vorteile:

Simple to set up and administer with great customer support. Initial setup was straight forward. Web interface is fine as is the System Manager Windows application.

Nachteile:

The full security package is a little expensive for a small company like ours. System Manager is Windows only and we are a Mac based company.

Vorteile:

I have been using WatchGuard for 25 years and it is quit possibly the most stable device on my network. We are a School and nowadays we are tasks with taking care of anything with a plug. So having a product like watch guard that requires little to no maintenance is wonderful.

Nachteile:

I don't have one. The product just works.

Veracity uses Watchguard

4,0 vor 4 Monaten

Kommentare: Easy to use, rebuild and configure for small to medium businesses, the documentation could do with a bit of a clean up for trying to find stuff Google tends to be better as searching the documentation than there own system or the navigation in the docs.

Vorteile:

WatchGuard has a very simple to use Web Control panel and allows for advanced configurations in a relatively easy to understand manner.

Nachteile:

Site to Site VPN for Watchguards seems to be a proprietary system that does a lot of configuration for you so not being able to manage as easily as just building your own Site-to-Site links using known technologies

Happy Customer and Partner

5,0 vor 12 Monaten

Vorteile:

We have been happy using watchguard and a happy partner for more than 5 years. It has been a solid product with only 1 or 2 failures and both of those were related to power not hardware.

Nachteile:

I feel that some of there content filtering and blocking is lacking. We have a couple of edge case customers that want really restrictive filtering. the block all approach these customers take does get difficult in the WatchGuard. There are solutions that do make this better. especially since you cant import/export these rules.

Powerful Feature Rich Firewall for SMB Budgets

5,0 vor 7 Monaten

Kommentare: Watchguard Firebox has been a reliable NGFW solution with client VPNs, Connecting Proxying and a rich, robust, and useful feature set.

Vorteile:

The interface is intuitive with a network background to configure and track down any traffic errors. Really happy with the Anti-Spam feature and the customization options.

Nachteile:

Would have liked more agile reporting regarding the Proxies and SMTP Proxy in particular to be able to do something quickly like verify 'missing' email messages were delivered through the firewall.

WatchGuard Technologies Firebox

5,0 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: They are great to work with. The Firebox is a solid piece of equipment with little to no issues, ever. It just works!

Vorteile:

The ease of installing the firebox is outstanding. The interface makes it easy to visualize what you are doing and what needs to be accomplished. It leaves no doubt as to what your policies are doing.

Nachteile:

Sometimes support is hard to get a hold of. When you get them, they escalate quickly if needed and get you an answer. It's not a huge deal. They are always great to work with, and are well-versed in all the products. They will have an answer for you!

A firewall that can work for anyone

5,0 vor 6 Monaten

Kommentare: A very positive experience spanning over a decade whereby the important core product still remains the same config just with added value over time. We hope they retain the policy manager software as this is almost essential for version control and offline prepping of configs which we all love.

Vorteile:

The feature set is obtainable even for the smallest business. They have realised that for an MSP, having a single product range which can work in all environments is essential. The devices are intuitive, simple to setup and very easy to monitor traffic.

Nachteile:

The requirement to reboot to install firmware updates and of course this also means its not automated. This is virtually mitigated in HA setups, however this doesn't suit smaller deployments.

Good value and competent system

5,0 vor 8 Monaten

Kommentare: Overall, our experience has been excellent

Vorteile:

It works like an enterprise system and gives us confidence that our system is secure while operating in a worry free way. With MFA Authpoint as a companion, to the appliance, we cannot think of any better protection other than e-mail training which we also do.

Nachteile:

We had problems in deploying but once done everything worked fine.
