Protecting against today’s sophisticated blended threats requires multiple security capabilities, and these threats don’t discriminate between a wired or wireless network path to their targets. WatchGuard’s wireless access points meet this challenge by extending best-in-class UTM security – including application control, intrusion prevention, URL and web content filtering, virus and spam blocking and more – from your WatchGuard firewall to the WLAN. With these appliances, businesses can harness the power of mobile devices and wireless networking – both indoors and outdoors – without putting network assets at risk.
Integrate wired and wireless security policies
WatchGuard’s integrated wireless controller technology combined with WatchGuard’s AP100, AP102, and AP300 wireless access points allows users to easily apply security policies to wired and WLAN resources simultaneously , which is critical to enforcing security standards across the entire network infrastructure. And updating integrated policies couldn’t be simpler – creating huge IT time and cost savings.
Unified device management
Unified device management tools offer a “single pane of glass” view into network security activities and allow users to configure and manage their WatchGuard wireless access points and WatchGuard firewall from one place – reducing both setup time and maintenance costs.
- Ease of management – With unified management tools, administrators can easily manage both their AP devices and firewall appliances from a single console
- Strong security – Features like MAC filtering, client reporting, Captive Portal technology, 802.1X authentication, and PCI compliant scan and reporting ensure a strong WLAN security stance.
- Great coverage, low profile – Powerful radios and custom internal antennas provide broad, reliable WLAN coverage. Sleek enclosure designs create subtle deployment profiles suitable for any space – both indoors and outdoors.
- Best-in-class hardware – WatchGuard’s fastest access points are built using the latest 802.11ac technology, capable of gigabit speeds. Other models feature 802.11n technology for operation in 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequency bands.
- Lower TCO – Integrated wireless controller technology helps realize big cost savings, with no separate controller hardware costs, no per-AP “seat” charges, and no controller software license fees.
