Watchguard Security Appliances

Understanding Small Business Needs

Small businesses have their own set of requirements. Strong security is paramount, but just as important is having the right kind of management tools.

Did you know? Recent studies by Verizon and Gartner showed that 95% or more of firewall breaches were caused by firewall misconfiguration. Small businesses are particularly at risk when they purchase security products that are just too difficult to use.

WatchGuard includes a suite of tools with every firewall that make deploying and managing network security straightforward and fast. Even novice network administrators can maintain a strong security stance. And unlike most security products, real-time monitoring and rich reporting are included without any additional licensing.

Wireless Access Points

Wireless secured by Watchguard

Harness the power of mobile devices without putting network assets at risk with WatchGuard wireless access points. These devices are a flexible and very affordable way to extend the best-in-class security of an XTM solution to the WLAN.

  • Full Cloud-based management is available now with the new AP120/AP320. This allows amazing levels of marketing resources to be utilised, and is all included in the cloud price, no hidden extras.
  • Best-in-class hardware: WatchGuard wireless access points are built using advanced wireless hardware, featuring 2×2 MIMO with dual spatial streams capable of signal shaping and 802.11AC for maximum speed.
  • Simple roaming: WatchGuard AP devices have you covered, with up to 16 SSIDs, and seamless network access when roaming between access points. And with the AP102 or the new AP due soon, WLAN access is also available outdoors.

Friendly WiFi

We can also supply the wireless in configurations that comply with the Friendly WiFi scheme, allowing you to display the logo, and to gain the confidence of customers using your access to know that their connection is protected from certain types of content.


T-Series Boxes

The T10 is a limited device, but still superb value where the functionality is not needed. Remember, it is also the only one that will directly connect to a DSL line (either ADSL or FTTC/Infinity)
