"Prior to WatchGuard, our networks were fairly open to students and faculty.

"WatchGuard's security appliances have been fantastic. With tools like WatchGuard Dimension, we can instantly see what's happening on our network and implement policies to control usage and ensure performance. In addition to helping us protect those inside the firewall, it also keeps cyber criminals out, so vulnerabilities and threats don't impact those within our walls."
