WatchGuard Total Security Suite

Turn your WatchGuard Firewall appliance into a comprehensive Unified Threat Management solution with the Total Security Software Suite from WatchGuard. This suite subscription includes powerful UTM security subscriptions that boost defences in critical attack areas for maximum network protection. At an exceptional value, this suite includes all the subscriptions from the Basic Security package, plus additional services including Gold support, Advanced Persistent Threat Blocker, Data Loss Prevention, WatchGuard Dimension, and Threat Detection & Response.

Key Features

Gold Support:
In addition to the Standard Support package for your WatchGuard appliance, with the Gold level on top, you’ll qualify for Live Call on critical support, and web or phone-based support within 1 hour for high priority issues, and 4 hours for medium/low priority issues.

Advanced Persistent Threat Blocker:
APT Blocker uses an award-winning next-generation sandbox to detect and stop the most sophisticated attacks including ransomware, zero day threats, and other advanced malware designed to evade traditional network security defences.

Data Loss Prevention:
DLP stops data breaches and enforces compliance by scanning text and files to detect sensitive information attempting to exit your network, whether it is transferred via email, web, or FTP. A very comprehensive service that helps keep your confidential data private.

WatchGuard Dimension:
A cloud-ready network security visibility solution that provides the big data visibility and reporting tools that uniquely identify and distil key network security threats, issues and trends, accelerating the ability to set meaningful security policies across the network. Use this service to monitor and gain critical and timely insights about network security, in real time, from anywhere and at any time, easily and quickly.

Threat Detection & Response:
Security data collected from the Firebox and WatchGuard Host Sensor is correlated by enterprise-grade threat intelligence to detect, prioritise and enable immediate action against malware attacks.

Intrusion Prevention Service:
Intrusion Prevention Service uses continually updated signatures to scan traffic on all major protocols, providing real-time protection against network threats, including spyware, SQL injections, cross-site scripting, and buffer overflows.

Application Control:
Allow, block, or restrict access to applications based on a user’s department, job function, and time of day. It’s never been easier to decide who, what, when, where, why and how applications are used on your network. You will have the power to limit application usage, and keep unproductive, inappropriate, and dangerous applications off your network.

In addition to automatically blocking known malicious sites, WatchGuard WebBlocker delivers granular content and URL filtering tools to block inappropriate content, conserve network bandwidth, and increase employee productivity. A powerful and easy-to-use solution for controlling and monitoring web activity across your entire organisation.

Real-time, continuous, and highly reliable protection from spam and phishing attempts. WatchGuard spamBlocker is so fast and effective, it can review up to 4 billion messages per day, while providing effective protection regardless of the language, format, or content of the message. Get real-time, continuous, and highly reliable protection from spam and phishing attempts.

Gateway AntiVirus:
Leverage WatchGuard’s continuously updated signatures to identify and block in real time, known spyware, viruses, trojans, worms, rogue-ware and blended threats – including new variants of known viruses. At the same time, heuristic analysis tracks down suspicious data constructions and actions to make sure unknown viruses don’t slip by.

Reputation Enabled Defence:
A powerful, cloud-based web reputation service that aggregates data from multiple feeds to provide real-time protection from malicious sites and botnets, while dramatically improving web processing overhead.

Network Discovery:
This service generates a visual map of all nodes on your network, making it easy to see where you may be at risk. It helps ensure that only authorised devices are connected while detecting all open ports and protocols.

A stateful packet firewall, while essential, simply isn’t enough anymore. The reality is that every network needs a full arsenal of scanning engines to protect against spyware and viruses, malicious apps and data leakage – all the way through ransomware, botnets, advanced persistent threats, and zero day malware. A true network security solution will address all aspects of threat prevention, detection, correlation, and response – today, and as those threats evolve. WatchGuard’s award-winning network security platform not only provides the most complete suite of unified security controls on the market today, but has consistently been the first to offer solutions for addressing new and evolving network threats including, but not limited to, advanced malware and ransomware.

Total Simplicity

It’s more than just about security scanning engines, though. WatchGuard believes simplicity is the key to successful adoption of technology. As such, all of the products are not only easy to initially configure and deploy, they are also designed with an emphasis on centralised management, making ongoing policy and network management simple and straightforward. Security is complex, managing it doesn’t have to be.

Total Performance

All businesses, regardless of size, need to pay attention to performance. Slow security scanning times can cripple a network’s ability to handle high-volume traffic. Some companies are forced to decrease protection to keep performance strong, but WatchGuard solutions never make you choose between security and speed. Leveraging the power of multi-core processing, WatchGuard’s platform is engineered to deliver the fastest throughput when it matters – with all security controls turned on. The platform can run all scanning engines simultaneously for maximum protection, while still maintaining blazing fast throughput.

Total Visibility

From the boardroom to the branch office, critical decisions about security often need to be made quickly before damage is done. Furthermore, you need to know what’s happening not just in the network, but on your devices inside and outside the firewall as well. Visibility is about more than data. Visibility is achieved when that data is converted into easily consumable, actionable information. The addition of the WatchGuard Host Sensor, available through Threat Detection and Response, provides continuous event monitoring, detection and remediation of threat activity on the endpoint. WatchGuard’s award-winning network visibility platform, Dimension, takes the data from all devices across your network and presents that data in the form of visually stunning, immediately actionable information. Using Dimension you can identify behavioural trends, pinpoint potential network threats, block inappropriate use, monitor network health and much more.

Stay Ahead of Evolving Threats

The M290 is part of WatchGuard’s award-winning Firebox security platform. The platform not only provides the most complete suite of unified security controls on the market today, it has consistently been the first to offer solutions for addressing new and evolving network threats including advanced malware and ransomware. The unique product architecture enables small and midsize businesses to leverage best-in-class security services – from URL filtering and intrusion prevention to application control and ransomware prevention, minus the cost and complexity of multiple single-point solutions (some features require additional licensing, see accessories tab).

Unified Security Defeats Complexity

Cross-platform integration is essential to deploying a Unified Security Platform. Direct Firebox and AuthPoint integration enables multi-factor authentication through the Firebox itself, eliminating the need for a separate RADIUS server and ensuring VPN access is securely extended to your users.

A Cloud’s-Eye View of Your Entire Network

WatchGuard Cloud provides full visibility into your network so that you can make timely, informed, and effective decisions about your network security anywhere, anytime. The platform displays 100+ dashboards and reports that allow you to quickly see high-level trends and anomalies, then drill down into detailed information on each.

Expansion Modules For Greater Port Density

The M290 provides an empty bay that can be used to add network modules (sold separately) to define a configuration that meet the needs of almost any network configuration. It has an open module bay for expansion modules, with options for four (4) 1GbE copper, four (4) 1Gbps SFP, two (2) 1Gbps SFP+, or four (4) multi-speed ports. Network modularity empowers IT pros to customise the port configuration to meet their needs, while ensuring the flexibility to adapt the firewall as their network evolves.

Quick and Simple Deployment

SMBs usually have smaller, less technical staff, which can make network expansion challenging. With Rapid Deploy – a powerful, Cloud-based deployment and configuration tool that comes standard with WatchGuard Firebox appliances – all you have to do is power up the appliance at a remote site and connect it to the internet. The appliance “phones home” and downloads the correct configuration files from the Cloud. Just like that.
