WatchGuard XTM [EOL] Review

​This product helped facilitate and protect our environment from the inside out but you need some basic understanding of network security to set it up.

Valuable Features

I would say the security features in the product are very easy to configure and cover all aspects of computer security needed a mid-sized company.

Improvements to My Organization

This product helped facilitate and protect our environment from the inside out, with features like DLP(data loss prevention) to content filtering all the way to port filtering and traffic shaping.

Room for Improvement

I wouldn't add anything to it as it is.

I've used it for three years.

Deployment Issues

Previous Solutions

We previously used Cisco ASA switches.

Initial Setup

The initial setup was very simple and straightforward.

Implementation Team

I implemented it myself out of the box. I setup the device with no previous experience, as you just need to have a sound knowledge on networking and some basic understanding.of network security.


It's worth every penny.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

The setup cost was about four thousand US dollars with a license for three years.

Other Solutions Considered

Yes of course, there were multiple UTM machines like Sophos, CybeRoam and others but non were up to WatchGuard standards.

Other Advice

Don't think about it just get it, and you will find everything you need in it.
