"Whatever is worth doing is worth doing well. Watchguard, established in 1996, has been in the business of providing gateway security solutions to about 5000 customers in India, and crossed the 500,000 unified threat management (UTM) install base milestone around the world. We think ahead of potential problems and develop proactive solutions for our customers, considering that Internet security is of paramount importance for any organisation. Every quarter we come up with significant features to our releases.
