AuthPoint multi-factor authentication (MFA) provides the security you need to protect identities, assets, accounts, and information. Let your company work confidently and worry-free with easy-to-use, cost-effective and complete multi-factor authentication.

Effective MFA protection with unique mobile DNA

AuthPoint uses a mobile device DNA to match the authorized user’s phone when granting access to systems and applications. Therefore, any attacker who clones a user’s device in an attempt to access a protected system would be blocked – since the device DNA would differ.

Easy-to-use authentication straight from your mobile phone

To activate AuthPoint MFA, follow a 5-step sequence in WatchGuard Cloud and you are ready to configure users. No need to carry tokens; authenticate using a simple app on your phone.

Cloud-based and hassle free

AuthPoint can be fully managed in WatchGuard Cloud. The user interface allows you to view AuthPoint reports and alerts, configure services, and manage tokens all from one location.

How to rack-mount WatchGuard hardware?

Rack-mounting WatchGuard tabletop devices provides a convenient and space-efficient solution for organizations looking to integrate their security appliances into a standard rack infrastructure. While WatchGuard tabletop devices are designed to sit on a desk or shelf, there are several options available to securely mount them in a standard 19-inch rack.

Rack-mount kits: WatchGuard offers specific rack-mount kits that are designed to fit their tabletop devices. These kits typically include mounting brackets and hardware that securely attach the device to the rack rails. The process is straightforward, and it allows the device to be easily installed and removed when needed.

Universal rack shelves: Another option is to use universal rack shelves that can accommodate various tabletop devices, including those from WatchGuard. These shelves are adjustable and come with customizable mounting options to fit different device sizes. Universal rack shelves are a flexible solution, as they can be used to rack-mount multiple devices from different manufacturers.

Custom mounting brackets: In some cases, organizations may prefer to design custom mounting brackets to precisely fit their WatchGuard tabletop devices into the rack. This approach may be necessary if the device dimensions are not compatible with standard rack-mount kits or shelves. It requires some engineering expertise, but it ensures a perfect fit and optimal space utilization. 

Rack enclosures with built-in shelves: For a more streamlined approach, some rack enclosures come with built-in shelves that can accommodate tabletop devices like WatchGuard firewalls. These enclosures offer a complete solution for housing both rack-mounted equipment and smaller devices, simplifying cable management and overall rack organization.

Rail adapter kits: Some WatchGuard tabletop devices are compatible with rail adapter kits. These kits allow devices to be attached directly to the rack rails, much like traditional rack-mounted equipment. Rail adapter kits are often available separately and may require precise alignment and careful installation. 

Regardless of the chosen method, rack-mounting WatchGuard tabletop devices offers several benefits, such as improved cable management, enhanced physical security, and better airflow within the rack. It also helps to consolidate networking and security equipment in a single location, making maintenance and troubleshooting more efficient for IT teams. Organizations should carefully consider their specific device model and rack configuration to select the most appropriate option for seamless integration and optimal performance.

Where to buy?

Here are some resources for options that will allow for the rack-mounting of tabletop devices. We do not supply these directly, but clients are welcome to purchase them on their own.
