What is WatchGuard Security Tech and Why Should Our Customers Care?

Security is a concern for organizations in every vertical of every size. And the number of network security and endpoint security solutions on the market is increasing almost as rapidly as cyber threats themselves. Choosing the right portfolio of solutions to address end-customer needs while remaining competitive to other choices in the market can be complex and time-consuming. And that’s the problem WatchGuard tech was born to solve.

At Multapplied, we’ve recognized the value of WatchGuard technology and have teamed with them to bring our clients a single, streamlined security solution for the ultimate in control and visibility.

Who is WatchGuard?

Who is WatchGuard?

WatchGuard is the first name in software security. In business since 1996, they serve over 250,000 clients worldwide, working with more than 100 distributors and in excess of 16,000 active partners to make endpoint and network security easy, affordable and accessible for mid-market distributed enterprise customers.

WatchGuard Enterprise Customers

Their solutions are not specific to any single vertical — their client list is a who’s who of organizations in retail, hospitality, healthcare, financial services and telecoms. The one factor all their customers have in common? They were looking for a robust security solution that was simple and streamlined, high-performance and cost-effective.

How Do WatchGuard Solutions Work?

2020 was a record-breaking year for cybercrime. Online attacks on public sector organizations, health care facilities and private sector businesses climbed dramatically. Phishing attacks aimed at employees suddenly working from home spiked, with 60,000 new phishing sites reported in March alone.

Organizations of all shapes and sizes are rushing to up their investments in network and endpoint security — but the variety of threats posed often leaves security teams reliant on multiple solutions, each with its own controls and protocols.

A Comprehensive Solution

WatchGuard technology is the solution to that chaos. It combines all the security measures your organization needs into a single solution. Choose from cloud-based or hardware options, and basic or total security solutions.

  • Intrusion Prevention
  • App Control
  • Web Blocker
  • Spam Blocker
  • Gateway AntiVirus
  • Reputation Enabled Defense
  • Network Discovery
  • APT Blocker
  • Data Loss Protection
  • Threat Detection and Response
  • DNS Watch
  • Access Portal
  • Intelligent AV
  • Dimension Command
  • Cloud Visibility Data Retention
  • Support

WatchGuard’s comprehensive solution eliminates the need for multiple security programs, licenses and dashboards. And more importantly, it gives your organization a single point of control from which to oversee your security measures.

Customization and Visibility

But the WatchGuard tech team didn’t stop there. Recognizing that the needs of each organization — and in some cases, individual departments within those organizations — would vary, they made their solution fully customizable and easy to use.

Your security team gains total visibility into traffic and activity:

  • Where incoming network traffic is coming from
  • Where outgoing traffic is headed
  • Which applications are using your bandwidth
  • Which activity has been blocked and why
