Professional firewall management with Watchguard and Cisco Meraki
Protect your IT networks with rigorous firewall management and strong firewall hardware.
We currently have several hundred Watchguard firewalls in our central management and reporting. With its functions, Watchguard is a perfect manufacturer for the majority of our customers.
Multi-WAN operation ensures that a wide variety of external connections can be bundled. We control precisely which services run from which clients with which bandwidths via which connections. In this way, we realise cost-effective, fail-safe, and high-quality Internet connections. Clustering is very often requested by our start-up and e-commerce customers. We operate many WatchGuard firewalls as active/active or active/passive clusters. Even if a device should fail (which almost never happens), operation continues smoothly. Built-in WLAN controllers ensure stable and professional WLAN operation. Guest networks with a voucher system, authentication of employees via their user name and password and many other features complete the WLAN portfolio.The central management enables us to operate our customers' firewalls extremely efficiently. We can quickly distribute rules for several locations and get the log messages of all devices reported to our log servers. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
In addition to WatchGuard, we also use the MX models from the manufacturer Cisco Meraki.
Here, the focus is usually not on performance, but on other exciting features: Cloud management enables the operation of an unlimited number of devices from a single location. This is brilliant for German companies with many smaller locations or global companies. The reporting of Cisco Meraki is the best currently available on the market. You can evaluate the traffic by application or by client. It is possible to drill down into ever greater levels of detail. This makes it possible to identify a problem in the network very quickly and to evaluate the network usage. The bandwidth management is just as brilliant as the reporting. For individual devices, groups, network segments, etc., bandwidths can be limited at application level with just a few clicks. Filtering peer-to-peer traffic, limiting Dropbox to 5 Mbps per client (except for management), blocking unwanted web content and much more is as easy as can be. In our opinion, Watchguard and Cisco Meraki are currently the best firewall manufacturers on the market. In addition, they have a very good price-performance ratio.
