For over 20 years, WatchGuard has pioneered cutting-edge cyber security technology and delivered it as easy-to-deploy and easy-to-manage solutions. With industry-leading network security, secure Wi-Fi, multi-factor authentication, and network intelligence products and services, WatchGuard enables more than 80,000 small and midsize enterprises from around the globe to protect their most important assets. In a world where the cyber security landscape is constantly evolving, and new threats emerge each day, WatchGuard makes enterprise-grade cyber security technology accessible for every company. WatchGuard is headquartered in Seattle, Washington, with offices throughout North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America.
Security technologies for anti-virus/anti-spam, intrusion prevention and APT protection are not created equal, so only the world's most trusted solutions make it onto our network security appliances. These best-of-the-best security scanning technologies sit on top of a platform WatchGuard built to be the fastest and most agile in the industry.
Why do we do it this way? Because proprietary approaches create hardware and software dependencies. We don't like them and neither do our customers. So we spent three years perfecting our Fireware™ operating system to run full versions of the industry's leading scanning engines on an industry-standard platform for maximum flexibility. And maximum cost effectiveness: our customers get the industry's best performance at every price point.
By integrating the best security technologies available into our proprietary platform, our engineers can focus on purpose-driven technology advances that solve real security problems. Like how to deliver data in a way that drives understanding and creates actionable intelligence.
In internet security, seeing is knowing. If you can see it, you can deal with it, so visibility is protection. That's WatchGuard Dimension. Dimension is WatchGuard's award-winning visibility tool that's standard on every WatchGuard NGFW or UTM appliance. Dimension enables busy IT security managers to instantly visualize and isolate threats to network security.
Other manufacturers might offer faster throughput for one single security technology but we engineered WatchGuard's platform to deliver the fastest throughput when all of its powerful scanning engines are turned on. So turn them all on. You can't afford not to.
Whether you want a Next Generation Firewall or are ready for a full Unified Threat Management solution, whatever the threat environment, WatchGuard has you covered. With access to enterprise-class security technologies, industry-leading visibility and the best performance at any price point, WatchGuard puts you at the top of the network security food chain.
