Reporting & Visibility

Oceans of Data Instantly Become Security Intelligence

From the board room to the branch office, critical responses to network security scenarios need to be made quickly to avoid additional data loss and network outages yet there’s no time to create sense of days or weeks of data. This is often once you most need your data visualised and presented from the Cloud so that you'll get the knowledge you would like and act immediately. This type of visibility dashboard is now an important tool for today’s network security solutions.

WatchGuard Cloud Visibility provides full visibility into your network so you'll 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.

An on-premises visibility solution is available for those that don't want to move to the Cloud: WatchGuard Dimension. Dimension provides the large data visibility and reporting tools that uniquely identify and distil key network security threats, issues and trends, accelerating the ability to line meaningful security policies across the network.
