Information Technology Specialist at a healthcare company with 51-200 employees
The primary use case is it is a firewall solution. One of the major selling points was that WatchGuard does adapt in real-time as new threats are discovered, and they push out fixes in real-time. A lot of our servers have been migrated to the cloud, so it is really our primary solution right now. View full review »
