Centralized firewall access

Good afternoon,

We are IT administrators and we run into the following problem.

We have many distributed firewalls and the way to manage them is through the System Manager.

Is there an application that can have all firewalls centrally without having to add one to the connection manually?

Thank you so much for everything!

    Hi @Deivid

    You can manage firewalls centrally via WatchGuard Dimension, or the WatchGuard Management server.

    You can read more about the requirements, and how to do each here:

  • For either option, you need the appropriate license options.

    For WSM Server - you need sufficient Management Server Licenses for each managed firewall.
    One will come with larger firewalls. You can find it on the support site for your firewalls.
    Additional ones need to be purchased - 5, 25, 50 or 100 license bundles.
    They are a one time cost.
    A 5 Device Upgrade license is part WG017256

    For Dimension, each firewall would need a current support license and a Dimension Command license. This license is included with a Total Security license, or you can purchase 1 or 3 year Dimension Command licenses.
