About Product

Historically, next-generation firewall (NGFW) appliances were designed to deliver a very specific set of security services – firewall, intrusion prevention, and application control. Since being originally defined, the security threats and the technology available to combat those threats have significantly evolved, creating a demand for additional network security services. As a result, other techniques and services have to be included in basic NGFW appliances such as SSL inspection, website filtering, QOS, antivirus inspection, and even sandboxing. While these additional services provide value to end users, it also confuses many people, making them wonder about the difference between an NGFW and UTM appliance.

Today, companies should not be searching for an NGFW or a UTM appliance, they should be searching for the right network security appliance that meets the security, deployment, and management requirements of their unique organization.

WatchGuard’s Solutions

Our unique approach to network security focuses on bringing best-in-class, enterprise-grade security to any organization, regardless of size or technical expertise. Ideal for SMB, midsize, and distributed enterprise organizations, our network security appliances are designed from the ground up to focus on ease of deployment, use, and ongoing management, in addition to providing the strongest security possible.

Not only does WatchGuard offer the greatest collection of network security services on a single platform, we do so in a way that has proven to be the most agile, able to adapt to new and evolving threat vectors faster than any other solution on the market.

We are a security company and we want the best protection for every customer, every time. As such, we strongly recommend customers adopt a full security suite. When running WatchGuard’s Total Security Suite, our Firebox network security appliances offer the strongest security against network threats. Every Firebox can be purchased as a stand-alone NGFW appliance; however, as a security company we never recommend the deployment of an NGFW without other security mechanisms in place. The best approach to security is a layered approach.
