What is most valuable?

What is most valuable?

Ease of setup. All WatchGuards are pretty much the same to setup and manage. We experienced that WatchGuard is easy to setup regarding VPN compared to other firewalls of other brands.

* Efficient to setup, run, and maintain. Saving man hours and cost in the process. * The client is easy to use and stable. * Simple to backup settings. * Simple to move settings between WatchGuard boxes. * The GUI is easy and intuitive.

What needs improvement?

Client-based administrative tool. Cloud-based central administration of all devices from one point would be nice (although there is always an added risk regarding this).
