Just because Wi-Fi usage has outpaced your original plans doesn’t mean it should be the cause of heartbreak and misery. This is your chance to beat the Wi-Fi blues and keep your users from falling into a funk.
In this hands-on webinar you’ll learn the top reasons why Wi-Fi networks become slow and unusable—and how to make it right. We’ll cover today’s best practices in Wi-Fi network design, including the latest capacity-planning approach that goes against conventional wisdom. We’ll cover how to:
Ballpark needs based on types of users and applications
Maximize frequency re-use, with lower power levels and less shouting
Configure access points and secure traffic
Use coverage mapping and conflict mapping tools
And much more!
We’ve all got troubles, but wireless access shouldn’t be one of them.

Being able to understand the posture of your customers’ network security is one thing, but being able to quickly take action to troubleshoot and resolve issues is what your customers really need. Learn how having the right visibility and reporting tools can take your managed security services business to the next level in the fourth installment of this webinar series.
Providing layered security with multiple services working together is the only way to effectively prevent, detect, and respond to network security threats. Learn how to utilize all the functions of Unified Threat Management (UTM) to provide the managed security services your customers need.
When managing security for multiple customers, you need easy to deploy and maintain solutions with the ability to integrate into existing technology ecosystems, supporting consolidation where possible with fewer tools, hardware, and service platforms. Learn how you can simplify your network security management in the second webinar of this four-part series.
With the prevalence of social media and networking tools, consumers are always just a hop, skip, and a “click” away from leaving your business a glowing review or one that damages your reputation for weeks and months to come. But while factors like customer service have obvious influence on your business’s standing, have you considered the impact of your network security? You should.
The consequences of network security vulnerabilities can cause devastating harm to a company’s brand, the likes of which some will never recover from. Retail businesses in particular remain a top target for cyber criminals – in fact, nearly one in three retailers have already suffered revenue losses due to a cyber attack. With your business’s reputation on the line, do you feel confident that you’ve really checked 'security' off your network shopping list?
Join WatchGuard Technologies Director of Product Marketing, Tracy Hillstrom, on September 28 for a look at the top threats and trends impacting retail today, and the key solutions to protecting retail networks and reputations.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is comprehensive, critical to data security, and coming VERY soon. So, are you ready?
Results from WatchGuard’s recent worldwide survey on GDPR readiness indicate that many businesses are waiting…but for what? Organizations with employees or customers in the EU must be GDPR compliant by May 25, 2018 or potentially face fines in the millions. With a laundry list of requirements and a diminishing window of time, prioritizing these compliance efforts have never been more important.
The GDPR writing is on the wall for a panicky, last-minute rush to comply. Join WatchGuard Director of Product Marketing, Tracy Hillstrom, on September 14 for a crash course on the GDPR essentials and how to get started now towards compliance. Additionally, learn more about WatchGuard’s survey results so that you can assess whether you are ahead, on-track, or behind the curve.

With everything from children’s toys to thermostats connecting to the Internet, it should come as no surprise that the average home has no less than seven IoT devices in use every day. But as pressure grows to release new products faster and faster, we’re all left to wonder: is security really a priority? Needing an answer, WatchGuard’s Threat Lab launched an ongoing project to test some of these connected devices and determine for ourselves how secure they really are.
Join Marc Laliberte, information security threat analyst, and Ben Brobak, technical product manager, on June 29 as they analyze the surprising results of this project and share their best tips for defense.

Small and mid-sized businesses are a driving force behind cloud adoption, and it’s no wonder: cloud benefits are BIG, with substantial cost savings around hardware, software, paper, storage, and automations.
But for all the convenience that moving to the cloud provides, where does security come into play? What steps should SMBs take to ensure their move is a safe one? Join Stephen Helm, product marketing manager, and Jason Vendramin, senior product manager, as they explore top cloud challenges, trends, and tips in this informative webinar.
It's expected that by 2020, annual revenues around IoT solutions could exceed $470 billion. As all things IoT saturate the market (cars, tea kettles, toasters!) what does that mean from a security standpoint? What vulnerabilities aren't included in the fine print of these technologies? Join Ryan Orsi in episode three of our webinar series for a look at the current state of Wi-Fi Iot and what may lay ahead.
565,000. Alarmingly, that’s the number of videos currently available on Youtube that explain how to execute a wireless attack. In less than a weekend, anyone with Internet access and some free time can become a Wi-Fi MiTM (Man in the Middle) and wreak havoc on your network.
Join WatchGuard's Ryan Orsi in episode one of our three-part Secure Wi-Fi miniseries as he explores the motives, execution, and anatomy of a Wi-Fi hack.

When cyber criminals lurk behind every dark corner of your network, where do you look for protection?
Having disparate security solutions – from the network, endpoint, and threat intelligence feeds – is no longer enough. There needs to be correlation among these environments, or bad actors are certain to exploit your technology silos.
Join Alexandra Lating, Senior Product Marketing Manager, and Marc Laliberte, Information Security Analyst, for a look at the key players needed to defend your network, but more importantly – what happens when you bring them together.
Having the right security measures is a good start, but it’s only half the battle. You need a unified security front. You need Correlation.

Over 90% of all breaches are enabled by a few hundred commercial exploit kits that hackers share and sell in the black market. The typical IT environment may have thousands of unpatched vulnerabilities, but at any given time, only a small handful of vulnerabilities are being actively exploited. To stay ahead of these attacks, WatchGuard participates in NSS exploit testing using CAWS (Cyber Advanced Warning System) - a cloud hosted software service that actively monitors and harvests live cyber threats and attacks, and then tests them against environments protected by the most widely used security solutions in the industry.
Join Brendan Patterson, director of product management at WatchGuard, and Rob Johnson, sales engineer at NSS Labs, for a behind the scenes look at the CAWS test system, and how it helps enable WatchGuard to stop hackers in their tracks.
Organizations across all industries are facing increased pressure from customers, vendors, and employees to offer Wi-Fi access. While offering this service provides significant gains, businesses cannot forget about the critical security measures needed to defend against wireless threats.
