Watch my guard!

3,0 vor 10 Monaten

Kommentare: Seamless - easy to use - but would like to see watchguard allow a Palo Alto like UI. Web UI seems outdated.

Vorteile:

IPS / VPN / Site to Site Tunneling (BOPVPN) / Mix routing mode

Nachteile:

The firewall clustering deployment was my least favourite. I also don't understand why the Geolocations DB is outsourced to another company who contains incorrect IPs of geolocations. For example I had attempts from Nigeria make into my on-premise environment because the Geolocation DB provider failed to identify the ip from the correct geo location.

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

The Alias use. It is complicated and difficult to train users/techs. After they understand that process it is very easy.

Quality Product That Allows Peace of Mind

5,0 vor 2 Wochen Neu

Kommentare: As described above. I love the product and am very thankful to have such a great security option.

Vorteile:

In my opinion, the security of this product stands out more than anything. Once properly set up, it creates a peace of mind that we've taken another step in the right direction for our security needs.

Nachteile:

I can't say there is anything that I don't like about WatchGuard Firebox. I will be honest, at first, the cost related to it I thought was a little high, but once I noticed everything that it does, that cost is nothing compared to everything it does and protects. That to me makes it worth more than it's weight in gold. So much so, I have installed one in each of my office locations.

WatchGuard is a great firewall

5,0 vor 2 Wochen Neu

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

Firebox features & reliability

5,0 vor 3 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.

Great Value, Top Rated Security

5,0 vor 3 Monaten

Kommentare: Service and support has been stellar since I began using WatchGuard in 2012. Highly recommended!

Vorteile:

Ease of Deployment, Stellar Support, Easy to use interfaces - WebUI and Firebox app.

WG is truly a mixed bag

4,0 vor 3 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.

Set it and forget it

5,0 vor 3 Monaten

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.

Vorteile:

We use Firebox's for all our branch offices and head office and use IPSec tunnels to connect the networks. We also use the mobile VPN for all remote users and it works great.

Nachteile:

So far we haven't had any reason to give it a negative review.

Very good core features, new features in cloud

5,0 vor 3 Monaten

Vorteile:

For People who are allready firm with firewalls and policies, it's easy to handle. You can configure firewall over a software with "old-look". For newer look and small changes, you can use a web-platform.

Nachteile:

Many new features are only with cloud available.

Happy Customer and Partner

5,0 vor 9 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.

Easy use and deployment

5,0 vor 3 Monaten

Kommentare: I've been using and administering Watchguard devices for over 15 years now. I've used and administered others, SonicWall, Cisco, and more, but I will never recommend any of the others over Watchguard. In the 15 years, and something like 40+ individual devices I've administered, we've only had four with physical issues in all that time. Two of them were past end of life when they died. Wish I could say the same for the off-the-shelf routers our end users have.

Vorteile:

Once you have a configuration for a device, you can deploy it to multiple devices, even of different models. With Watchguard System Manager software, you can edit a device configuration offline, without affecting the running firewall. You can even deploy it to a completely different model for testing before applying it to the final production device. This is my favorite feature of Watchguard! My second favorite feature is that you don't *have* to control the device from the web (Watchguard Cloud), but you *can* if you want to. I absolutely *hate* systems that make you use their cloud service for deployment. You know who I'm talking about.

Nachteile:

It has a little bit of a learning curve compared to some others, though not as much as some of the bigger name brand systems.

Powerful Feature Rich Firewall for SMB Budgets

5,0 vor 4 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.

A firewall that can work for anyone

5,0 vor 4 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.
