Mission: To bring widely deployable, enterprise-grade security to small-to-medium sized organizations and distributed enterprises.
Network threats can come from anywhere, at any time, and they can take you down before you even know they're there.
To seize them, you need a network security solution that's at the top of its game. That's WatchGuard. Uniquely architected
to be the industry's smartest, fastest and most potent network security solution.
Security technologies for anti-virus/anti-spam, intrusion prevention and APT protection are not created equal, so only the world's most trusted solutions make it onto our network security appliances. These best-of-the-best security scanning technologies sit on top of a platform WatchGuard built to be the fastest and most agile in the industry.
Why do we do it this way? Because proprietary approaches create hardware and software dependencies. We don't like them and neither do our customers. So we spent three years perfecting our Fireware® operating system to run full versions of the industry's leading scanning engines on an industry-standard platform for maximum flexibility. And maximum cost effectiveness: our customers get the industry's best performance at every price point.
By integrating the best security technologies available into our proprietary platform, our engineers can focus on purpose-driven technology advances that solve real security problems. Like how to deliver data in a way that drives understanding and creates actionable intelligence.
In internet security, seeing is knowing. If you can see it, you can deal with it, so visibility is protection. That's WatchGuard Dimension™. Dimension is WatchGuard's award-winning visibility tool that's standard on every WatchGuard NGFW or UTM appliance. Dimension enables busy IT security managers to instantly visualize and isolate threats to network security.
Other manufacturers might offer faster throughput for one single security technology but we engineered WatchGuard's platform to deliver the fastest throughput when all of its powerful scanning engines are turned on. So turn them all on. You can't afford not to.
Whether you want a Next-Generation Firewall or are ready for a full Unified Threat Management solution, whatever the threat environment, WatchGuard has you covered. With access to enterprise-class security technologies, industry-leading visibility and the best performance at any price point, WatchGuard puts you at the top of the network security food chain.
The recognitions keep piling up.
Think all network security solutions are the same? The experts don’t. They keep giving us news to roar about. Learn how WatchGuard can help you protect your network.

WatchGuard seeks individuals who have a passion for information security and are eager to work in a collaborative environment.

In fact, recognitions keep rolling in as we roar ahead in the marketplace.
WatchGuard is big enough to offer employees challenging opportunities but small enough to be able to personally recognize the individual who contributes to the values, culture and success of our company. We are firm believers of promoting from within our organization, and provide training for our employees so they can gain additional skills to advance in their careers.

I worked at WatchGuard Technologies (More than 3 years)
A company with a driven and ambitious leader who believes in satisfying EVERY customer - current or prospective. Professional, passionate, and intelligent group of people that work in the company around the world. Careers are built at companies such as WatchGuard. Management is top notch and the culture is fun and energetic. I would work at this company again in a heartbeat!
At the time the company hadn't implemented videoconferencing technology to communicate more effectively with remote staff. In a multi-national organization with employees outside of HQ working in so many different countries, it would make a key difference to remote employees to be a let to see people they are speaking to on the phone.
Advice to Management
Keep up the great work. You have created a company that leads in its market and is also a great place to work and grow.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at WatchGuard Technologies (Seattle, WA).
I applied for a position with Watchgaurd online and was contacted for a phone interview with a recruiter. Within the week they requested I come in for an in house panel interview. 4/5 people I met with had standard questions and the interview was very conversational. The designer, however, didn't ask me questions about design. The interview with her was mostly just flipping through the recently completed work in a monotone voice lacking any enthusiasm for the work she did.
