WatchGuard XTM [EOL] Review

It is stable and does not require you to reboot all the time

How has it helped my organization?

Instead of having to manage NAT policies and firewall policies in different Windows, in WatchGuard XTM OS, it configures in all-in-one place.

What is most valuable?

Monitoring of network activity is included in the box.

What needs improvement?

WatchGuard never stops doing improvements on their products.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Never, and I have 30 boxes installed already.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?


How are customer service and technical support?

Professional grade support: They are really knowledgeable.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We previously used SonicWall and Fortinet.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is neither simple nor complex. If you know the base in networking and how the firewall works, you will be able to figure it out.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Like all other manufacturers, there are a lot of features and different pricing. The best is to talk to a representative.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did look at SonicWall and Fortinet, but we finally choose WatchGuard.

What other advice do I have?

After it is installed, you will have plenty of time to do something else, because it is stable and does not require you to reboot all the time.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?

T10 - T30 – T50 – M200 – M400
