I would 100% recommend this solution to others. We plan to keep using this solution in the future. I would rate WatchGuard Intrusion Prevention Service a seven out of ten.

On a scale from one to ten, I would give this solution a rating of seven. If they made it more stable and improved customer support, I would give them a higher rating. It is mostly for small to medium-sized businesses. Usually, large organizations have different requirements and they look for different kinds of products.

I have a request for a feature in the next version and that would be to not only have detection and prevention but also action, for example, to shut down the whole system over an application programming interface (api), for example that would be nice. My advice, however, is always to backup as often as you can. Because when it's a particle component, one has to have an effective backup strategy. You cannot compare this solution to dedicated intrusion prevention systems like Proofpoint or other programs that act only for intrusion detection prevention. WatchGuard is a Unified Threat Management (UTM) system and it's for midsize market customers. So in the future, I would like to see threat management and intrusion prevention in a single module. I rate this an eight out of ten.
