WatchGuard Firebox Layered Security

Does the solution provide your business with layered security? If yes, please give examples of attack vectors it secures for you.

The solution provides our business with layered security. In terms of the attack vectors it secures, we have a firewall set up and it gives me reports. It also has an integrated web filtering solution. I can set up a website filter and it's all filtered in one place. I don't have to go to another solution.

It is one of the layers of our security and it definitely does protect us from many attack vectors. Between the antivirus scanning, the blocking, and the new DNSWatch, it is protecting us from a number of attack vectors.

The one spot to check the status of everything is nice. That has made my job easier.

WatchGuard provides us with one of our layers of security. The HTTPS proxy is where a lot of things get trapped.

The port scanning is great, because it allows us to block a whole bunch of stuff that I don’t have to monitor 24/7.
The subscription services are great, like the antivirus and spam blocker.
I really like the geolocation, because we can completely block out Russia, China, etc. I don't have to worry about allowing attackers from other countries coming in. That is a great feature.

It certainly protects our network, blocks unwanted incoming traffic and, at the same time, can manage outbound traffic too.

With WatchGuard, I've got a lot of WebBlocker rules set up which help quite a bit, blocking a lot of suspicious and parked domains. Between WebBlocker, the Botnet Detection, the website reputation filters going, and IPS - which is one that is essential, but nobody really talks about a whole lot; between all those things working together, even antivirus, I feel our network is pretty clean. And if there is some suspicious activity, I think I have a better chance of being alerted to it

The solution provides our business with layered security. It gives us the ability to prevent traffic from coming in on certain ports and the ability to navigate certain traffic to different locations, not letting it just come into my system and do whatever it wants to do.

It gives me Layer 3 and Layer 4 security. For what I need, it meets the sweet spot.
