Beginning with the typical core firewall services such as Gateway AntiVirus, Spam Prevention, URL Filtering and Intrusion Prevention, WatchGuard build upon these with:
Organizations of all sizes have been plagued by sophisticated attacks that evade traditional signature-based defenses, resulting in the loss of personal information, millions of dollars, and permanent reputation damage. WatchGuard APT Blocker stops these very fast moving and persistent threats by using a next-generation cloud sandbox that simulates physical hardware, exposing malware designed to evade traditional network security defenses.
Data Loss Prevention
The Data Loss Prevention (DLP) service enables you to detect, monitor, and prevent accidental unauthorized transmission of confidential information outside your network or across network boundaries. The DLP service includes built-in auditing sensors that you can use to monitor compliance with HIPAA or PCI information security requirements. You can also create custom DLP sensors to detect data that matches other content control rules, or create a custom rule to search for specific phrases in network traffic. The included DLP reports help you to evaluate and demonstrate employee compliance with your organization's information security policies.
Threat Detection & Response (TDR)
Hackers are designing malware to be more sophisticated than ever. Through packing, encryption, and polymorphism, cyber criminals are able to disguise their attacks to avoid detection. Zero day threats and advanced malware easily slip by antivirus solutions that are simply too slow to respond to the constant stream of emerging threats. Organizations of all sizes need a solution that leverages a holistic approach to security from the network to the endpoint. WatchGuard Threat Detection and Response (TDR) is a powerful collection of advanced malware defense tools that correlate threat indicators from Firebox appliances and Host Sensors to stop known, unknown and evasive malware threats.
IntelligentAV leverages a machine-learning engine to better defend against continuously evolving zero day malware. While signature-based AV solutions are only able to detect known threats, IntelligentAV makes it possible to predict threats months before they are released, providing powerful predictive protection previously unavailable to small and midsize businesses.

WatchGuard AuthPoint MFA solutions help to reduce the likelihood of network disruptions and data breaches arising from lost or stolen credentials.
AuthPoint goes beyond traditional 2FA by considering innovative ways to positively identify users, and the large ecosystem of 3rd parry integrations means that AuthPoint can be used to protect access to the network, VPNs and Cloud Applications.
Easy to Use AuthPoint Mobile App
WatchGuard’s AuthPoint app for iOS and Android allows users to authenticate right from their own phone. There is no need to carry key fobs or thumb drives; instead install and activate the AuthPoint app in seconds, and then use it to authenticate from a smartphone. It enables speedy push-based authentication as well as offline authentication using QR codes with the phone’s camera.
WatchGuard’s ecosystem includes many 3rd party integrations with AuthPoint – allowing companies to require users to authenticate before accessing sensitive Cloud applications, VPNs and networks. AuthPoint supports the SAML standard, permitting users to log in once to access a full range of applications and services.
Fast VPN and Remote Access Deployment
IT is considered based practice for any remote access or VPN application to have MFA to protect the network from unauthorized entry. And in today’s demand home working environment, VPN and remote user access has become even more essential. If you have WatchGuard Fireboxes, AuthPoint is the perfect fit and configuring a VPN with AuthPoint is remarkably simple and done in minutes. The result? Firewalls empowered with risk-based authentication.
Hardware Token Authentication
When the mobile app or text message isn't an option, AuthPoint’s time-based, one-time password (OTP) hardware token is a sealed electronic device designed to generate secure authentication codes every 30 seconds to authenticate into protected resources.
