Flexible & Powerful

Protection is provided by the firewall, its add-ons and the quality of the configuration. Many organisations find themselves in this position and are still the subject of an attack and have lost data as a result. With protection now not enough, detection needs to be high on the agenda. Monitoring must be in place to make it possible to spot a breach.

WatchGuard Dimension provides exactly that. Set up quickly alongside a WatchGuard Firewall, WatchGuard Dimension immediately provides a window into your data allowing you to make decisions about your configuration that would not have been otherwise possible.

ThreatMap provides a visual display of the sources of all data passing through your gateway. Inbound and Outbound connections to obscure locations stand out like a beacon once you have become accustomed to understanding your environment in this new way.

Executive Dashboard:

This high-level view of network activity shows top trends, top clients, and correlated views of top users and applications.  With just a click, users can drill all the way down to individual log data, as needed.

Executive Reporting:

With the Executive Reporting function, users can choose from more than 70 comprehensive reports, with both summary and detail options tailored for C-level executives, IT directors, compliance officers and small business owners.  Summary report options include specific PCI and HIPAA and compliance reports, plus the ability to pre-schedule reports for delivery to key stakeholders in a user’s organisation.

Hierarchical TreeMap:

WatchGuard Dimension’s TreeMap, called FireWatch, filters traffic in a way that instantly brings your eye to the most critical information on active users and connections, as well as who and what is using the most bandwidth. The TreeMap view also provides options to pivot, drill-down, and filter.

Global ThreatMap: 

ThreatMap features multiple, interactive configurable views on a world map, making it possible to have real-time views of threats per region.  That information is critical to helping users identify and fine-tune defences against those attacks.
