WatchGuard Total Security

Complete network protection in a single, easy-to-deploy solution.

Total Security.

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. At WatchGuard, we believe simplicity is the key to successful adoption of technology. As such, all of our products are not only easy to initially configure and deploy, they are also designed with an emphasis on centralized 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. Our platform can run all scanning engines simultaneously for maximum protection while still maintaining blazing fast throughput.

Total Visibility.

From the board room 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 powerful network security visibility solutions – WatchGuard Cloud Visibility and Dimension – take the data from all devices across your network and presents that data in the form of visually stunning, immediately actionable information. Using either of these visibility solutions you can identify behavioral trends, pinpoint potential network threats, block inappropriate use, monitor network health and much more.

WatchGuard Security Services

WatchGuard offers the most comprehensive portfolio of network security services, from traditional IPS, GAV, application control, spam blocking, and web filtering to more advanced services for protecting against advanced malware, ransomware, and the loss of sensitive data. WatchGuard also offers a full suite of network visibility and management services.


Intrusion Prevention Service (IPS)

Uses continually updated signatures to scan traffic on all major protocols to provide real- time protection against network threats.

Reputation Enabled Defense Service (RED)

Cloud-based reputation look- up service protects users from malicious sites and botnets, while dramatically improving web processing overhead.

Network Discovery

A subscription-based service that generates a visual map of all nodes on your network so you can easily see where you may be at risk.

WebBlocker URL Filtering

Automatically blocks known malicious sites, with granular content filtering tools to block inappropriate content and increase productivity.

Application Control

Allow, block, or restrict access to apps based on department, job function, time of day – then see in real time what’s being accessed and by whom.

Gateway AntiVirus (GAV)

Continuously updated signatures identify and block known spyware, viruses, trojans, and more – includ- ing new variants of known viruses.


Real-time spam detection… Our spamBlocker is so fast and effective, it can review up to
4 billion messages per day.

A Unified Approach to Network Security

SMBs and Distributed Enterprises continue to fall victim to advanced threats that have serious impact on business operations and continuity regardless of existing security deployments. No single security control, of subset of controls, is sufficient. The more stages of an attack you’re enabled to protect against, the more effective your overall defense is, even when new threats bypass one defense.

With Total Security Suite, organizations of all sizes can benefit from enterprise-grade prevention, detection, correlation and response from the perimeter to the endpoint. ThreatSync, our Cloud-based threat correlation and scoring engine, collects network event data from several security services on the Firebox, including APT Blocker, Reputation Enabled Defense, Gateway AntiVirus and WebBlocker. This is correlated with threat activity detected via the WatchGuard Host Sensor and enterprise-grade threat intelligence to provide a unified view of your environment, and assign a comprehensive score based on threat severity.

Best of all, all of these security benefits are available through our extensive MSSP partner network via one simple offering with one SKU, one license, one appliance.


APT Blocker – Advanced Malware Protection

Relies on an award-winning next-gen sandbox to detect and stop the most sophisticat- ed attacks including ransom- ware and zero day threats

Data Loss Prevention (DLP)

Prevents accidental or malicious data loss by scanning text and common file types for sensitive information attempting to leave the network

Access Portal

Provides central location for access to Cloud-hosted applications, and secure, clientless access to internal resources with RDP and SSH.

Dimension Command

IT pros gain access to a host of network control features including one-click configuration changes, with access to individual appli- ances through a web UI and VPN management tools.

Threat Detection and Response

Correlate network and endpoint security events using threat intelligence to detect, prioritize and enable immedi- ate action to stop attacks.


Reduce malware infections by blocking malicious DNS requests, redirecting users to information to reinforce security best practices.


IntelligentAV is a signature-less anti- malware solution that relies on artifi- cial intelligence to automate malware discovery. Leveraging deep statistical analysis, it can classify current and future malware in mere seconds.

The Power of Visibility

WatchGuard Cloud Visibility and WatchGuard Dimension
(on-premises) are powerful network security visibility solutions that come standard with every WatchGuard network security platform. They provide a suite of big data visibility and reporting tools that instantly identify and distill key network security threats, issues, and trends, accelerating the ability to set meaningful security policies across the network. Each includes over 100 dashboards and reports that enable you to quickly see high-level trends and anomalies then drill down into detailed information on each.

One Appliance, One Package, Total Security

Simplicity is our mission at WatchGuard and that mission extends beyond how the product is built to how it is packaged. While all of our services are offered à la carte, we have worked to develop two packages that simplify the decision-making process. The Total and Basic Security Suite packages are available on our Firebox T and M Series appliances, as well as our Firebox Cloud and FireboxV virtual models.

  • The Basic Security Suite includes all of the traditional network security services typical to a UTM appliance: IPS, GAV, URL filtering, application control, spam blocking and reputation It also includes our centralized management and network visibility capabilities, as well as, our standard 24x7 support.
  • The Total Security Suite includes all services offered with the Basic Security Suite plus advanced malware protection, data loss protection, enhanced network visibility capabilities, a secure access portal, and the ability to take action against threats right from Dimension, our network visibility
