WatchGuard XTM [EOL] Review

​VPN tunnel creation way in WSM is very easy to setup.


What is most valuable?

VPN tunnel creation in WSM. Very easy to setup BOVPN tunnel between two sites by dragging and playing. Device configuration change method (editing configuration file offline, then pushing to device which gives the convenience of changing settings remotely when the network connection is being adjusted.

When moving datacenter and WAN IP changed, simply edited the configuration and deployed device at the last second to demount device. Then, simply power on device with new WAN connection and get all things up without further configuration.
