Wi-Fi Management Added into WatchGuard Cloud to Simplify Security

WatchGuard Technologies, a global leader in network security and intelligence, multi-factor authentication (MFA), advanced endpoint protection and secure Wi-Fi, announced Wi-Fi in WatchGuard Cloud, along with a new lineup of Wi-Fi 6-enabled access points (APs).

The addition of Wi-Fi in WatchGuard Cloud provides cross-platform integration and centralized management of all WatchGuard products, simplifying how partners purchase, deploy and manage WatchGuard’s products and services, while new APs give customers enhanced connectivity, performance, and best-in-class security.

“The MSP market continues to grow at an accelerated pace, driving partners to look for centralized solutions that simplify deployment and management for customers while delivering the highest levels of security. Wi-Fi in WatchGuard Cloud – and the new APs – give partners the ability to layer on Wi-Fi-as-a-Service for customers and integrate it with our complete portfolio of security services like firewall, endpoint protection, MFA, and more,” said Andrew Young, senior vice president of product management at WatchGuard. “Wi-Fi is an integral part of our Unified Security Platform, and now that it’s integrated with WatchGuard Cloud, it will help further scale business growth for MSPs and further reduce costs.”

WatchGuard Cloud helps solution providers that have struggled to work across various management systems to deploy and manage security for customers. A recent survey of MSP executives found that 95 percent felt maintaining multiple interfaces decreases the productivity and efficiency of managing their customers’ security. Wi-Fi in WatchGuard Cloud and the “single pane of glass” experience of WatchGuard’s Unified Security Platform™ dramatically reduces IT overhead and improves overall usability while cutting infrastructure costs.

WatchGuard’s new APs provide next-generation technology to future proof deployments. The launch of AP130, AP330, and AP430CR comes as the availability of Wi-Fi 6-enabled devices continues to grow. With support for WPA3, the highest level of encryption, and cutting-edge Wi-Fi 6 technology, these new APs are perfect for small to midsize companies and distributed enterprise customers looking for the most secure Wi-Fi configuration.

WatchGuard will continue to support existing Wi-Fi hardware. For more information on Wi-Fi in WatchGuard Cloud and the new lineup of APs, click here.
