Peace Of Mind Isn’t Priceless.
Offering basic Wi-Fi access doesn't give you a competitive advantage, it offers you a chance to compete. With benefits ranging from increased productivity to improved customer satisfaction, implementing a wireless network for your employees and guests has become the table stakes of doing business. But Wi-Fi also opens your business to significant security risks, and can be complicated to deploy and manage, not to mention expensive.
WatchGuard Wi-Fi Cloud solutions, true game-changers in today's market, are engineered to provide a safe, protected airspace for your Wi-Fi environments, while eliminating administrative headaches and greatly reducing costs. With expansive engagement tools and visibility into business analytics, they deliver the competitive advantage your business needs to succeed.
Enterprise-Grade Wireless Intrusion Prevention System (WIPS)
Our cloud-managed access points have built-in WIPS to help ensure you have the protection you need. Using patented Marker Packet technology, WatchGuard WIPS defends your airspace from unauthorized devices, man-in-the-middle and denial-of-service attacks, rogue APs and more – and with close to zero false positives. For even greater protection, deploy our APs with a WatchGuard Firebox to extend the Firebox's best-in-class UTM defenses, like application control and zero-day malware protection, to your WLAN.
Management That Scales
With the WatchGuard Wi-Fi Cloud, IT pros can enjoy an entirely controller-less Wi-Fi management experience including setup, configuration, monitoring, troubleshooting, and improving corporate and guest Wi-Fi access, without worrying about the limitations of legacy controller infrastructure. Wi-Fi Cloud environments easily scale from one to an unlimited number of APs across multiple locations. APs can be grouped in many ways including location, building, floor, and customer to maintain consistent policies.
Ruthless on Performance
WatchGuard APs come standard with RF optimization, spectrum monitoring, and trouble-shooting built in, which is vastly more reliable than competing solutions that rely on a connection to a management cloud. Incorporating the latest 802.11ac standards, you'll have speeds of up to 1.3 Gbps over the air, without sacrificing security.
Engage with People and Gain Visibility into Business Analytics
The WatchGuard Wi-Fi Cloud delivers unprecedented visibility into every corner of your wireless environment, and beyond. Customizable dashboards and alerts provide a comprehensive overview and the ability to drill down for a more granular view. Business owners, now more than ever, need to leverage technology to get the most bang from their marketing budgets and have concrete data around site metrics like footfall, dwell time, and conversion to drive business decisions. Don't waste money on three separate products (for Wi-Fi access, splash pages, analytics), when WatchGuard's Wi-Fi Cloud gives you all three in one interface for all the business metrics you need to make the best decisions to grow.
GO Mobile Web App
The GO mobile web experience allows you to manage your wireless networks using any mobile device. Managing customer engagement is entirely integrated with standard features enabling simple setup of customized splash pages and personalized customer promotions.
WatchGuard Wi-Fi Cloud is built from the ground up on RESTful APIs to handle even the largest WLAN networks that, until now, would need to be served by on-premises WLAN controller solutions.

Wi-Fi device location, customer dwell time, footfall, and new vs. repeat users can be captured with zone-based analytics. Dashboards and reports allow administrators to quickly view analytics at all levels, from the highest to the most granular view, across time segments and location groups - and there are no hidden third party costs.
Watchguard AP320 Stand Alone VS. WiFi Cloud Security:
Yes, you can use the AP320 as a standalone device with the Watchguard Cloud and get Threat Prevention. Of course it will not have the incredible protection of using the Watchguard Firewalls. Using them together is not doubt, the highest quality protection available today.
