Rated 4 out of 5 by from ​VPN tunnel creation way in WSM is very easy to setup. Valuable Features:VPN tunnel creation way in WSM which is very easy to setup BOVPN tunnel between two sites by dragging and playing. Device configuration change way(editing configuration file offline then push to device which give the convenience for remote changing settings when network connection being adjusted.Improvements to My Organization:When moving data center and WAN IP changed, simply editing configuration and deployed device before the last second to demount device, then simply power on device with new WAN connection and get all things up without further configuration.Room for Improvement:Can’t add static route with domain, must use IP.Stability Issues:VPN tunnel lost packet.Scalability Issues:No.Technical Support:7/10Previous Solutions:N/AInitial Setup:Simple and straightforward.Cost and Licensing Advice:Price is still high, especially for those subscription services.Other Solutions Considered:Yes, Dell Sonicwall.Other Advice:LiveSecurity and subscription service. Low market ratio cause local service not be so strong.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helps me create firewall policies for networks and services. Valuable Features:The proxy based policy in Policy Manager is the best feature. It helps me:* Create many different firewall policies for different networks and services* In tracking problems in the policy rule in the traffic monitor of Firebox System ManagerImprovements to My Organization:With this product, I can easily block group websites with its WebBlocker based on predefined categories such as: Social Network, Sex Material, and Video StreamingWe can also use Application Control to block some applications based on pre-defined categories such as: P2P, Social Network, Streaming Media, and Games.Room for Improvement:* It is difficult to configure WatchGuard with your internet settings.* I would like to see more granularity on each IP bandwidth that is used* It cannot block Internet Download Manager nor the Torrent application “BitComet”Use of Solution:I have been using it for eleven months.Deployment Issues:There were no big issues with deployment except the problem of multiple WANs and multiple subnets from the LAN.Stability Issues:No stability issues were encountered. The device is working smoothly for me.Customer Service:The customer service from my vendor was very good. I would give them a rating of 9/10.Technical Support:I would give technical support a rating of 7.5/10 for two reasons:* The vendor technician, on the first occasion, checked the device remotely and configured something, but saved the running configuration without backing up the previous configuration first.* Singapore technical support tried to remotely fix the problem where the application control could not block the Torrent application “BitComet”. After one hour of testing was complete, he later sent an email to my vendor to alert them that the current WatchGuard cannot block “BitComet” and that we are waiting for a new version. At that time, he should have tested it at his office first before he asked to check my device remotely.Previous Solutions:The company has just opened and WatchGuard was the first solution.Initial Setup:It’s not complex. The configuration is UI based. For experienced network administrators who understand network and firewall concepts, it is easy.Implementation Team:The device is implemented through a vendor team. I would give them a rating 7/10 because they did not check and verify the configuration clearly before they left our office. I later found that their configuration was not yet working well and they had to return to configure it again.ROI:For the current network demand, I think the product is worth buying. It is not too expensive and it has almost all the features that I need.Cost and Licensing Advice:I think it is best to consult with the vendor for pricing and licensing.Other Solutions Considered:Previously, I wanted to use Juniper as my firewall. However, after consulting with the vendor and reviewing the product ranking and features, we finally chose WatchGuard for our solution.We chose it based on “medium price with high quality and security that its features can use.” So we chose it for the frontend firewall and we have another for the backend firewall.Other Advice:If your company needs a medium priced firewall appliance with WebBlocker, Application Control, VPN, and SpamBlocker, then you should try WatchGuard.However, it is not recommended to use an e-banking server or another import server for the DMZ zone on WatchGuard.You have a firewall, but you need a very good IPS appliance in addition to these servers. WatchGuard has IPS, but it is not very good yet.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from While the wireless capability is great for roaming and seamless hand-off, there have been intermittent issues with connection dropping on Apple devices. Valuable Features:The most valuable features of the WatchGuard product line that we appreciate and leverage the most is the UTM security suite. That front-line of defense is invaluable in providing protection for our network, and the networks of our customers.Improvements to My Organization:The WatchGuard SSL VPN is great for remote access to our location, and for remote support to our customer locations. It allows us to easily and securely access their network remotely to make any changes needed while supporting them.Room for Improvement:While the wireless capability is great for roaming and seamless hand-off, there have been intermittent issues with connection dropping on Apple devices.Use of Solution:We have been using and selling the WatchGuard product line for three years.Deployment Issues:We have had no issues with any of the WatchGuard XTM deployments.Stability Issues:The WatchGuard XTM platform has been very stable.Scalability Issues:No issues encountered.Customer Service:Excellent, they have incredibly quick response to any questions, and their online customer portal is very nice.Technical Support:Excellent, they have never had an issue troubleshooting our equipment or help with our clients equipment. Their ticketing system is also very helpful.Previous Solutions:We used SonicWall. We made the switch shortly after Dell acquired them due to their continued wireless issues. WatchGuard seemed to be much more stable and scalable. We have had much better success with WatchGuard and are very glad we made the switch, especially for our customers.Initial Setup:Because we are an IT company, and are certified in the product, setup was very straightforward. I like the interface as it is very logical to set everything up. For a standard end-user, however, it is very complicated as an enterprise based router/firewall is not intended for the general end user to set up.Implementation Team:Being an IT solutions provider, we were able to purchase through our distributer and deploy in-house as we are certified in the product. We have installed this device in our offices, and many different WatchGuard products at many different locations.ROI:The return was very fast, as it helps us to do our job very effectively and securely.Cost and Licensing Advice:Pricing and licensing is very straightforward. No hidden fees, and applying licenses is incredibly easy.Other Solutions Considered:Because we are an IT solutions provider, we looked into a few different options before deciding to proceed with WatchGuard. We looked at continuing with SonicWall, Cisco, Adtran, etc. WatchGuard was the best fit for our company as well as our clients.Other Advice:While there are many choices available today, and you won’t be disappointed if you choose to proceed with implementing a WatchGuard device. We have been using them for years, have deployed them at many locations, and have been very happy with them – as have our customers.Disclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:We are a WatchGuard Gold partner.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It has definitely helped us in framing and implementing IT policy of our organization, but the VPN hardware needs to improve. Valuable Features:* For the monitoring of the devices' operation, and network traffic, a monitoring software, "WatchGuard System Manager" is provided* It has an online traffic monitor, which is an ultimate feature and valuable for troubleshooting* Web/URL filter is strengthened by the WebSense filter* The web based log analyzer called "WatchGuard Dimension," offers great information regarding network traffic* The traffic analysis reports can be created in both granular and brief summary fashion, and extracts are useful for managerial informationImprovements to My Organization:* Online traffic monitoring is a great help in network troubleshooting, as the log analyzer reports found great sources of information for technical support and the management who are barely acquainted with the technical terms* Websense has categorized web traffic in over 150 different categories* Decisions to block certain unwanted sites or categories have been made on the basis of the web traffic trend presented by the log analyzer* Permissions can be set by groups, so as an educational organization, our users are grouped as administrative officers, clerical staff, post graduate students, research students and faculty* The web access is made available to users is only available for their work, and as a result, the utilization of Internet connectivity has been improved* It has definitely help us in framing and implementing IT policy of our organization.Room for Improvement:Initially WatchGuard assured us regarding endpoint security, but we are not sure that the product provides endpoint security features to its full extent. Instead, WatchGuard provided us a VPN hardware. WatchGuard needs to improve this feature.Use of Solution:I've used it for over two years.Deployment Issues:We had almost no problems.Stability Issues:The product has been stable for the last two years. We have connected it to three leased lines, a DMZ with 10 web applications and 2000+ campus users are connected without any issues. Also, there have been no bottlenecks!!!Customer Service:Satisfactory to good.Technical Support:The technical team, so far with WatchGuard OEM has been excellent. Recently, there a new team has been formed, and I am yet to interact with them. Also, the support team from their business partner is also good. We have a very good rapport with them and during the last two years only, only one or two unsolved issues were escalated to their international support.Previous Solutions:We were using a different solution previously, but it didn't prove perfect for our requirements. It lacked many features like URL filtering, log analysis etc. So we were searching for a better product. We had a proof of concept from three reputed products.Finally, WatchGuard offered almost all the features we needed, coupled with the lowest recurring cost, i.e. annual subscription renewals.Initial Setup:We have got three internet lines shared amongst campus users and off campus web clients.The requirements keep changing from time to time. We have over 35VLANs that need to be catered for according to IT policy of theorganization. and WatchGuard is almost perfect.Implementation Team:A joint OEM and vendor team initially implemented the product. The team configured and demonstrated the product to us. They also handed over operational know-how of the product, and the team had an exceptional level of competency.ROI:The ROI can be measured in several ways. First, our in house team has excelled in re-configurating the product and network troubleshooting is made simple using WatchGuard tools. The tools are very simple to handle, so our in-house team has become more confident and got more expertise in handling IT infrastructure.There are moderate renewal cost for subscriptions like AV, IPS, IDS,web filter, application control etc. therefore recurring cost is low. As such after fulfilling rationale of the firewall device, additional returns are in the form of lower operating costs and manpower expertise.Therefore, the returns are higher as compared with the initial investment on this product, so the ROI is positive.Cost and Licensing Advice:Our estimated cost for the setup was INR25,00,000+/- and we grabbed an offer for a pair of devices, costing around half of the estimated cost. Deprecation is 33% on this kind of equipment. The annual subscription renewal cost is 20% of original set up cost.Other Solutions Considered:* Fortinet* HPOther Advice:WatchGuard XTM2050A has enterprise class performance with the cost of an SMB class device. If you are not enthusiastic about the brands or reputed survey reports, WatchGuard will be definitely an option to go for.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I found this device to be one of the most stable platforms that I have worked with, but paying a yearly maintenance fee for firmware updates is not worth it in my opinion. Valuable Features:I love the GUI and the ability to edit rules on the fly without needing to save a configuration. This makes for a very quick adjustment when needed. I also like the fact that you can save to a configuration file, so if there are a number of changes being made, it can always be rolled back to the previous save.Improvements to My Organization:This device was one that I deployed on my own business network and has given me the ability to thoroughly know the product that I was selling. The added security features from Live Security ensured I did not have to manually update some of the basic functions of the device.Room for Improvement:I feel that paying a yearly maintenance fee for firmware updates is not worth it in my opinion. I would rather see the yearly fee go for updates to the add-ons and live security, but I think as time goes on firmware updates should be free since the price tag of some of these devices is difficult for some small businesses to swallow.While I hold the company in high regard the learning curve on these devices can be tough right out of the box. I've had to contact support on numerous occasions due to little quirks in the system that needed to be ironed out.Use of Solution:I personally have had an XTM25 in my own network for over five years,and I've used multiple versions of WatchGuard enterprise gradefirewalls over the last decade. My first experience was with an X500Edge and the last product I had the opportunity to use in the field wasan XTM26 for small to medium sized businesses.Deployment Issues:Yes, there were times that the device would lock up after completing the initial configuration and would need to be factory reset.Stability Issues:I found this device to be one of the most stable platforms that I have worked with. Even when the UI seemed to fail on a device, the product still functioned until we had time to reboot the device and bring the UI back online.Scalability Issues:Yes, I deployed an XTM25 to a smaller business and the company grew beyond what the device could handle VPN wise. There was a trade in process but the company decided not to go with that since it was within a year and the process was not worth their time or effort.Customer Service:I had great encounters with all levels of customer service from the general help desk all the way up to our regional manager.Technical Support:Most of the time when I called customer support it was for features that I did not work with or if I had a configuration question that did not seem to be working. Most of the time, I was able to get the answers right there on the phone. There were times that tickets had to be opened and a call back was warranted, and most of the time I received a solid response within 24 hours.Previous Solutions:Previously we used a software firewall deployed to a form factor box. We switched because of my experience with the product and the stability.Initial Setup:The initial setup was straight forward, The GUI pretty much takes you through all of the settings you would need to know to set up a general device.Implementation Team:I was the implementation team for my organization as I was part of a managed service provider.ROI:The ROI for this product in my eyes was knowing that my customers were protected by a stable platform that could be updated and upgraded when they needed it. The features that were available could be added as needed with small additional purchases for feature keys.Cost and Licensing Advice:Depending on the product, my setup cost was around $250 for time and labor. For the most part I could deploy one of these devices in about an hour with very little downtime to the organization.Other Solutions Considered:I had been a vendor of firewall services for many years prior to deploying WatchGuard technology. I evaluated and was not impressed with SonicWALL, or Untangle. I was deploying pfSense on boxes and found that the WatchGuard platform was perfect in size, and the software seemed to match all of the features of pfSense. The reason for switching ultimately came down to additional customer service and availability of support.Other Advice:This product is solid and has a great reputation behind it. I would recommend the product and company to anyone looking for a great firewall solution.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Although it's expensive, you should go for it as it offers great protection for your network.

It's a great product with many security features and offers great protection for your network.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
