WatchGuard Cloud Platform Ushers in Era of Simplified Security Management

WatchGuard Technologies, a leader in network security and intelligence, multi-factor authentication (MFA), advanced endpoint protection, and secure Wi-Fi, announced a series of new capabilities that make WatchGuard Cloud an ideal security platform for managed service providers (MSPs).

The new single, centralized interface for delivering and managing network security, advanced threat detection, MFA and more, allows MSPs to benefit from simplified client management while enabling rapid, efficient and profitable growth.

Building on WatchGuard Cloud’s centralized security visibility, MSP-specific management interface and advanced executive reporting, the latest version incorporates WatchGuard’s ThreatSync features, advanced Firebox policy management capabilities and authentication policies that enable zero-trust.

With WatchGuard Cloud, MSPs can create policy templates for easy, repeatable security deployments across many subscriber accounts. The platform makes it simple to manage and report on Firebox security environments and AuthPoint MFA deployments from a single pane of glass, while its intuitive interface helps MSPs minimize administrative tasks and maximize productivity and profitability.

WatchGuard Cloud Platform enhancements include:

  • Advanced Network Security Policy Management – One-click security service implementations and pre-configured policies to deploy content scanning, network inspection, content filtering, and other services at scale.
  • Risk-Based MFA for Simplified Zero-Trust Adoption – The AuthPoint risk framework policies improve identity management capabilities by providing customizable and flexible rules to configure users and devices based on the level of risk.
  • Built-in End-to-End Threat Analysis – The platform leverages the ThreatSync service to unify threat intelligence, correlation and scoring across the WatchGuard security stack, from network to user.
